How to deal with love


Since when can humans tolerate
love with its hard and cruel slap?
All dreams done built incinerate
and can cause both grief and mishap

But how can man not fall to such
an offer of much eloquence
that vows to care in its mild clutch
and its heavenly consequence

The pinches that it gives your heart
hurts much but makes you crave for more
it shows both gold and rusted part
reality and metaphor

Love is not that easy nor hard
and should not come by quantity
counsel for heart to be not scarred:
measure it by quality.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
