War; another name for Love

How many pieces can your heart break into?

Be curious to know,

Throw your heart at an handsome devil

A man with slippery hands,

Who never holds on long to anything

See if he even tries to catch it,

Then see through your tear-filled soul

And count the pieces after the crash

You’ll have your answer.



After the tears,

We agreed to paint white flags on our foreheads,

To deny seduction & surrender romance –

But our souls are not fitted for such peace,

Lines cross, feelings ignite

We soon find ourselves back at war,

A heart to heart scuffle –

That we call Love.

    “Throw your heart at the hands of an handsome devil, a man with slippery hands.” Loved those lines…..This was really relatable.
