The lover, having sworn off love,
Puts the heart in a new and riskier gamble
The lover forgets past hurts
When new love comes along.
The lover having fenced the mind
From emotions, toils to be free of chains
The lover puts the brain on break when the hearts walk in
The Lover’s heart never having healed fully
Plunges in headfirst and bangs the head.
The lover loving too fiercely(perhaps)
Sends the other heart away screaming
In flight and in pursuit, the lover tries to catch the wind of affection.
The lover chases the bone never meant to be had.
In pursuing the bone, the lover hurts the heart.
…THE BONE(THE LOVED)
Having loved a little( or thought to have loved a little)
Becomes too slippery to be caught
At crossroads whether it wants to be pinned or not
The loved, having seen the affinity dipped in by the lover
Decides to flee with only one leg
The other leg, lying comfortably on the lover
The bone with just a leg becomes a peg
On the heart of the lover
The loved, seeming distraught
Blames the lover for loving too much
…THE LOVER AND THE LOVED
The lover and the loved, with their backs facing
Have different motives.
They may have been intertwined before
They each may have been both lover and loved when simplicity ruled
The loved asked for love and rejected it
The loved thinking differently and acting away from thoughts
But the loved still at a crossroads may in confusion stay.
The loved may remove the other leg
The lover may out of frustration and forlorn need
Remove the peg from the heart by self
The lover and the heart fights and the brain sits on the fence.
It was never a part of the journey.
Serves them right for leaving me out
The heart, the lover and the loved(the bone)
Are neither foes nor allies of the brain.
