Love - Less

I once knelt down,

And offered my prayer to the tree.

I saw God’s reflection in the clouds then,

I felt Gods touch in the breeze.


But today when I went back,

I saw emptiness and desolation,

A cloudless and dark, wistful sky,

No longer inspiring, no longer free.


In these highways where God used to reside,

And doesn’t do anymore;

Has the world become too loveless,

Or is it just me?


I once dived in,

Lost myself in those eyes.

I saw the flower of love blooming then,

And heard the truths beneath the lies.


But that sparkle that charm,

Lasted not long, died like a bee.

No longer does it house the brightness,

No longer does it host felicity.


In these barren, fallow glades of solitude,

Where eyes don’t sparkle anymore.

Has the world become too loveless,

Or is it just me?


I once was a different man,

Made up of softer; greater things.

Temples of my courtyard used to flourish,

And bells of faith used to ring.


But now the time, the world does not permit,

For innocence to breed in me.

Coz no longer do the bribes suffice,

And no longer can I afford the fee.


In these endless repetitions, all too common,

Where ears cant hear, what eyes can see,

Has the world become too loveless,

Or is it just me?
