Amidst all the hustle, the reality prick'd.
Anguished, he was caught on a cleft stick
Conversations stopped, behaviour changed.
Wounded, everything got deranged
Longing for the love, he lost heart.
In solitude, he tried ways to part
Playing the blame game, feelings were stained.
Unwanted, the presence pained
For her sweetest words,and ignorant actions.
Wore a mask, he hid his reactions
Expectations hurt,a lesson learnt!!
