Can love exterminate its own pain?
Can it kill itself, for someone’s gain?
Is love a killer, or a saviour?
Does one, in love, become any savvier?
Is love a fresh lease of ‘breath?’
Or, the ‘unknown’ side of death?
Does love, one’s life, elevate?
Or, the miseries of love, does it aggravate?
Does love ‘really’ make you divine?
Or, all through your life, makes you pine?
Does love invigorate or enervate?
Love is either a boon or a bane, in everyone’s fate!
Love seems to be, but a savage,
It can strike you at any age!
