Someone's Love

by Ehsan Sehgal

I surely know
I believe
Someone loves someone
Despite that
The consent
The approval
Should be there
To verify the truth
To endorse affection
Of both sides
Nothing happens
If the action
The conversation
Does not take place
Face to face
The broken heart
Lose nothing
Someone may break
To self
Not to speak
Not to tell
Silence may end
Entire struggle
Toward love and affection
It will be a great tragedy
Of two lives.
