Deceptive love

After being a diehard romantic for long 

I have now come to understand the true nature of love 

Though by far I always swore by its purity 

But time and again it had ditched me at times most unexpected

True love I now feel does not exist 

Apart from maybe a mother’s love 

Rest all is, give and take 

A mutual agreement you never signed in the first place 

It is the expectation that someone will care 

On days, sick and hard

That broke my heart 

Because fighting a lonely battle is ten times more difficult 

The truth is that love is my nature, deceptive 

You are loved when you are happy, smiling, giggling, and raising a toast to life 

But when the love you truly desire in moments of dark 

You are left with comments and satires cold-hearted 

Waking up in tears is so not me 

I have always loved to be a girl chirpy 

The tears were due to someone else 

Whom I had by far believed loved me the most 

What kind of love was this 

Love me crazily on some days 

And ignore and hurt on others 

I hated this shift for years and it drives me insane 

I thought if you love a person you care

But if you do so on days you are abided by 

And not on days, I expressed my voice at something you don’t like 

You were ruthless and cold 

Getting tired of this deception 

I am putting an end to all my expectations 

I can’t let the deceptive love play havoc with my emotions 

Am thus taking charge to remain neutral 

Self-love is what I profess now 

Taking care of myself and my smiles 

For whatever number of days, I will be alive 

There will be no room for true love in my life
