This poem depicts our feelings when betrayed. In life, no love is perfect. But when it comes to open betrayal, hearts are broken. From when life was harmonious, through the hurdles until a new hope resides in the lover's heart, this poem tells more.



Great were the old times

When we first met eye in eye

Green was the grass everywhere

Sorrows we had not in our minds

For memorial stories we shared

Our hearts beat with entire joy


Now as dreams have evaporated

Life has become acrimonious

Worries have grown in our hearts

Great has been the created distance

Between us yet we are close

Sleepless nights we spend


Nobody knows but siblings think

Our bond is mounting naturally

Yet love is virtual as lies hamper

Now broken are these weak hearts

That no more beat for each other

And so both our feet are wobbling


I feel hugely let down for

Surprisingly that gipsy guy

Has stolen your striking sight

By creating perfidious smiles in you

And his unwise sweet words

That make you feel mine bitter


It is hard to digest that disloyalty

Making me lose my only paradise

My land with a limpid well between

That used to quench my arid thirst

Evaporate the cold in me

To keep my body and soul healthy


Although you no more hug me

But let me die of cold dreams

Fainting to kill your emotions for

Unrealistic promised untrue worlds

I am certain when the day wakes up

The sun will shine for true love to revive
