Love in Vain
When I first laid my eyes on her, I thought I
May never see again: she emitted
Such a blinding light from her appearance
A mastermind criminal she was to
Steal the stars and trap them in her eyes which
Left the earth in a starless blanket.
A glance towards her would leave memories
Worth remembering forgotten I was
Swallowed by her heavenly features which
This is a preview of the whole essay
With ease would take you. The red painted sky
At sunset was reflected in her cheeks
And the crimson of rage locked in her lips.
She was the food on my plate and the drink
In my glass, the water in the lake and
The pump of my blood. She was the scent of
A flower, the fire in a furnace, the
Glow of a light, the words in a poem
She was everything and all revolved
Around her. Lavishly sweet was the taste
On her lips, which only a touch will leave
You dazzled and the stress which you once had
Would diffuse into nothing. Just with a wink
In our sight, she’ll have anything she wants
For you’ll be pampering to her needs.
It is better to say ‘stay away from
Such devils’ you would give them your life and
They’ll leave you lifeless; you’d make them happy
But experience it? No you will not.
They’ll strip you of your wealth; to think you were
In love would be the notion of a fool.
Hell would upsurge if you deprive her of
A single thing; such creations of God,
Beautiful in stature, should not have hearts
Of fiery temper like a volcano.
Unless you obliterate her from your
Mind from the first sight, you’ll be ensnared.
Censor her from your mind and you’ll be free.
Generous was god, when he let me be
Free from this trap, like a fly from a web.
And now I am free as a bird in the sky,
And like the bird I watch below at those
That fall into the similar hole to
Me but to deep for them to climb back out.
Those sorrowful memories play in my
Head, but the pleasurable time I will
Never forget. But was my love in vain?
Or was it her playing me with her games?
I find it hard to believe that I was
Merely a pawn in the grasp of such a
Woman, but was she ever a woman?
