Myriad colours of earth
We both loved her, she loved me,
Your tears won I had to back off
You said your daughter needs a mom
I too felt that she needs one.
I backed off, broke her heart, lost her
I married your sister.
But when your turn came to marry her
You started to find faults in her.
You shattered my lover’s heart to pieces,
Though she leaned on you fully
After I ruined her faith laid on me.
You treated her so bad that she walked away.
You soon got married for your daughter of-course,
Now I feel like a fool!
Was she your love interest at all or was I your prey?
I know I will never get the truthful answer!
