Myriad colours of earth
You want me to believe it all
To trust you once more
Even though you shattered it once
Yet you want my trust again.
Then you told me again and again
She is not my class or type
You know her too well
So you thought it’s your duty to tell.
I asked you again and again
And you told me so much
About her and her ways
That I thought you were true!
I backed off, married someone else
After a while I came to know
That you are brazenly stalking her
You are hell-bent to get her for yourself!
