Ehsan Sehgal

If I am in university
I forget my worries
I see the students
The boys and girls
And the beauty,
The smiling faces,
The inviting eyes
I look in their styles
Each girl is in love
I love one and then another
No limits nor instructions
To falling in love
I just love to love
Not for the sex
Not to become companion
I enjoy
I feel happy
But If I back
Onto my rented room
The worries also return
To make me depressed
To make me tired
During that time
I write the writings
For someone to love me
It is my routine
I do not know
If someone comes
And when it will end.
