We loved so much before February 13th
Eyes so love-sweet and come-finish
We made love on the veranda of our hearts
Beautifully carved to fit more love watts
We sacrificed to make us…
I sacrificed everything to sum us
A pillar to each other, we were crowned REAL
Yet you crashed our creation, you embraced betrayal,
On that 14th love of February…
And I murdered you with him!

A blood day it is…
Broken hearts and fresh hearts yearning for a honest kiss
I see them hugging visible and invisible stories
Love touching their lips like unavoidable calories
I see me, with her shedding bloody tears…
I can hear my childhood friend gasping for mercy to my rage-blind ears
Vows broken, love rotten
Lies and disloyalty penetrated my love’s heart but then,
The truth would’ve set her free and crashed my heart to pieces…
Now I am here staring at suicide with a Romeo poison bottle and get gone soon wishes.
