Love Caused the Pain

She became mute

questioning love’s cruelty

who tied her in chains

as a prisoner of love

love caused the love

love caused the pain

love selfishly relished

to watch her heart bleed

desiring her to herself


the prisoner pleaded

saying all is but you

in all I saw you

so why this jealousy

love mocked her

saying I want you

all to myself

it gives me pleasure

to watch your heart tend

to victims I send

causing two hearts

to separate and break

as I partake

for Laila’s sake

how cruel she replied

but why oh why

love replied

your heart is my prey

I am the predator

why would I share a pure

heart so sweet

with anyone else but myself
