The Repentant Man

I looked at the man who was thrown near the tree.
The fearful vibrations went like the waves in the sea.
This was the result of giving extreme affection.
Giving love and care was the cause of this dreadful destruction.

He lied there motionless like a dog.
Lonliness started eating him in the wicked fog.
He had been betrayed and his trust was killed.
His emotions were dead and heart was peeled.

The last vapours of expectations told him again.
The goodness of you gave you this bloody rain.
His conditions were so pathetic that he didn't even cry.
He had no option but to die.

He took a knife and tore himself apart.
The true pain was his son's betrayl taht shreaded his heart.
His corpse laid down with no one getting the news.
Before he was adored but now had no use.
