Love: You’re an Asshole

There once was a girl who loved a boy,

a boy whose roots were rooted far away;

the boy loved the girl too, though a dream.

One day the couple met, and did learn

dreams are much sweeter than reality.

Reality hurts, but it is good.

The girl now loves another, the victor.

The victor is where the girl belongs,

just as the boy belongs to someone else.

Love is a madman, a spiteful trick.

Love! Love is fleeting if you allow it.

And the girl, oh, she did allow it.

But the boy did, too. In his special  way;

special disposition for revenge.

So now both the girl and boy are crying.

  1. You have said a lot in very few words ! And the boys special disposition for revenge and both are crying …..The hurt one , the one whose right to flee was questioned and avenged , continues to sympathize with the abuser , calling love as an asshole.
    I salute your humane attitude. A great and resilient perspective , will definitely let you move on.
