The real and true love
It is only a fiction
Far from the reality
In the dress of sublime words
Yes, the words that are lovely,
Which used and abused
Everywhere by both

Have seen anyone ever
To love a person
Who is impotent
The open truth is the sex
Masks with beautiful words
Promises and gifts
To prove true love
When one satisfies sex thirst
The true love gets
Eyes, ears, and feet
To go-ahead for a new one
To play drama
Again and again
We know, everyone knows
To believe that
Not to believe
It is life, and so is life
To display true love
With the new masks
Every time and everywhere.
