The game of love

The game of love that I played
I was unfair all the way
I won your heart and broke it
Like a poor toy made of clay
Now I long for you today
When my hairs have become gray

Now I understand all the truth
I wasted all my precious youth
I made mistake in the first place
My whole life is now in a mess
Now I long for you today
When my hairs have become gray

Now we are oceans apart
All the girls now break my heart

Now I know what you mean to me
So I cry for my destiny
Now I have lost life's joy and charms
Now I long for your tender arms
Now I long for you today
When my hairs have become gray

    One should not see love as a game; they only end up being hurt and lost. Wonderful write, I enjoyed the rhythm and rhyme scheme. (Report) Reply

    Feel of regretting is shown in a gray hair. also it shows that we all have done something that put our youth in dangerous of wasting. yeah, sometimes we all understand that we really waste our life.
