Love? ? Really? - Poem by Nishant Rawlley

You say you love me,
But do you really?
Do you?
The way you say it,
How can i deny?
I know what it is to be abandoned in love...
But love? ? Really?
Do you realise,
You talk to a heart,
That was smashed in love somewhile ago,
And shattered into a million pieces,
Each of them abandoned by this world,
Yes, i'm ready to move on with life,
Who doesn't want love in his life?
Who doesn't want to give love another chance?
But if only this fear could let go of me,
The fear, she left me with,
She who taught me, love hurts,
That every bit of it hurts,
And how on earth are you supposed to understand,
That i..... still love her,
Like the beautiful remnants of great civilisations,
Like the dying flames of huge fires,
Like some ancient mysteries that remain,
Unreasonable, unjustifiable,
Yeah i realise,
It is god's bliss to have someone love you,
But love? ? Really?
Do you really think i'm the one?
I know not, what to say,
But will you be there for me,
When i've lost everything?
Will you hold my hand,
And interwine our fingers making me feel cared for?
Will i be able to look into your eyes,
And find the same love gleaming?
Will you love me for what i am,
And not for what you think i am?
Will you be able to tolerate my worst tempers,
And yet love me?
Will you be the shoulder,
When i want to cry out the pain?
Will you pamper me like a li'l kid,
When i want to be treated like one,
Will you be my best friend for life?
No, i'm not putting any conditions to your love,
But i'm scared, I don't know, what to say,
You say, you love me,
But do you really?
Love? ? Really?
