A Tearful End

by Ehsan Sehgal

I am afraid of love
And it is as like
Life-threatening journey
It has not the ending
But one stays suffering
From waiting, worries
And fears
I know
I feel
You sleep
Keeping me in thoughts
You awake
Thinking of me
Morning till evening
You watch
My status
My posts
My writings
To make yourself
Satisfy, joyful
But how long
That will go
There is someone
Who will take me away
From your hidden sight
That will be your end
Of a love story
A sad and tearful end.
