bleakness of love on a beautiful day

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

let love talk to love
why are you here
throwing million darts
to kill the dear heart
taking souls apart
smiles frozen to the core
wretched folklores
none with happy endings
every one is dead
spewing blood,
some without heads
sweet path you have led
show mesmerising possibilities
while, destruction is assured
back stabbing is ensured
poor young, don’t know
what is coming their way
they think sun is shining,
on fields of hay
gold, silver linings, all to see
then you suddenly
turn glee to bleak
every door, window
almighty creaks
excruciating screams
can now be heard
betrayed facing extinction
lovers had your word
even devil doesn’t come near
fear runs away with fear
everything is destroyed
whatever is held dear
how you change
innocent pure souls
now without dreams
only ghastly goals
nightmares for lives
wars and strife
impervious to society
consider you their deity
are you happy
