A Thorny Road


What love is called!
'Tis the name that breaks the heart
'Tis the morning of the life
But keeps the evening dark

Tell me who don’t need love?
'Tis the need of every one
Always we search a point
To be together or to be apart

no one breaks the promises
promises are love freak
That keep the bad name
Why to cry with shriek

What love is called!
Tis the name that breaks the heart

‘Tis the road of thorns
gifted by the lovely flowers
For it, what writ on my fate
I receive it early or late

These roads are not destination
These roads keep bad name
We give it in frustration
What love is called!
Tis the name that breaks the heart

    we knew ups
    and down
    in love
    moments of pain
    and joy
    but mostly it makes us weak
    in dubious ways
    the road of thorny the road of pain/well done (Report) Reply

    Love can be at once heart breaking and heart mending! You have brought out the duality of the most cardinal emotion in man! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply
