Love is a deep word,
Yet deeper in context to understand
When someone's heart has been torn,
It means that they have loved to an extent.
Many times I pictured myself in love,
Lost in the beauty of perfection
Even though my experience ended in a sob,
I drowned in tears that brought me pleasure.
Growing old and having failed,
I don't want love to end like that
Perhaps love has not perforated my shell,
Since my heart is still in tact.
