Love Is Just A Game

Love Is Just A Game

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

Love lasts, 
Does it? 

Cheat on 
Would you still? 

Betray trusts 
Won't you? 

Leave 'em alone 
Those who love you 
Wouldn't you? 

This is how it works 
Doesn't it? 

Those who love 
Should be taught this lesson 
Will you? 

Coz love 
Is just a game 
We play 
To quench 
Our insatiable thirsts 
Don't we?

mou
only those will suffer in love, who takes it through their soul,place someone at the peak of their life and sacrifice and feel silently and unconditionally.otherwise player will always plan and throw a meaningful smile that haunts you rest of your life for your true dedication.
a beautiful poem

I enjoyed reading this poem. I like how you ask questions about love using so few words.
Good luck for the future.

I loved the way you tagged each of your stanzas.
Very well crafted, covering all the painful aspects of love.
You started this write with a question and confirmed step by step how love can't last when it is played like a game...
Very well done! Keep sharing more.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you understood the message here. Thanks for reviewing ☺
very well...
love's certainly nothing... more than... but a game that we play around either faithfully or without much devotions. sometimes, we loose control on our heart, & get ourself lost in such "insatiable" vibes just to feed inner hunger. and here i admire your give lines on it:

love
Is just a game
We play
To quench
Our insatiable thirsts

very visualized. depicted, & intellectual choice of words you've come up with. you've nice POVs on love-edge. nicely penned.

Yes, love is a fickle and oft times brutal game. Nicely penned!

Yes indeed! Still we are fool enough to believe in it. Thank you for the kind review ☺
Sadly, your last verse rings true to these cynical ears. Life mirrors fairy tales, we see the polished Disney products and dream, while forgetting the Grimm truth behind the original tales told. I don't remember Disney covering the part where the ugly sisters cut off their toes in an attempt to make the shoe fit, but it has similar sounds to our version of reality that we see any time we watch a reality show, hungry for fame without the effort of talent and commitment. Great write.

Lorry.

You're very welcome :)
I think we do! Our thirst is indeed insatiable.

This is a clever poem that hits the spot and makes its point with unflinching accuracy.
