The Game Of Love - Poem by Sandra Martyres

Her Mother had told her that
Love was a game of give and take
With sometimes a bit of heartache
But her Mother did not mention that
Love could be really very illusive too
Like chasing a moving shadow

So she believed in his love implicitly
She cherished every moment that
The two of them spent together
Hid the heartache that she felt
When they were forced to part
She followed her Mother’s advice

She waited for his calls and letters
Savoured every word exchanged
Replied with equal love and fervour
But the good days did not last long
The game became one-sided
She wrote - he did not care to reply

Then on Christmas Eve he wrote
About his change of plans and how he
Had no option but to take her leave
It looked like one big deception
When she read shortly after about
His very flashy wedding reception

    A mother's advice should be listened.As the saying goes, 'mother is always right'
    she should not give it all, all the love for that man, she must retain a portion of herself.
    A good write, Sandra. a good job..
    Hugs,
    Meggie

    Expressive. Many women end up in a worse situition by such deceptions. There has to be mass awareness in young women about this. Nice expression of a social issue.10 (Report) Reply
