Defeated Love! ! !
Shelly kept waiting for him
Dazzling in white fairy dress
He didn’t come but
She felt cheated, ignored
Aghast with certain despair
How she came out of her house
Despite many restrictions
Risking herself for this guy
Not it was first time he didn’t come
mistook her as granted forever
Three days have now passed
He didn’t come nor his messages
Shelly tried his number, not reachable
Response she’d expected, her heart hadn’t
Abject she fell on road in dismay, in grief
She felt vehicles trampled all her dreams
Driven all of them by the man she loved ever
“Loved? ” Tears, loathed then by her delusive love
Rolled down on her face, watery gloomy eyes
She’d mostly cared of them, prettiest of all.
She kept crying over an hour
Alone she is, heart hollow she felt.
Perturbed, her belief was shattered
So was she trying to fight fiercely
The sweet memories, now a turned morgue
The paradise lost she won’t get again it back.
She tried to rise. Yes! She did, but fell on her knees.
Powerless was she, hopeless than ever could be
Drifted by her tears and sorrow she vanished
Still she cries unnoticed, unattended, unseen.
