The Legends with their towering love stories
The Heroes of the flawless romantic ballads
Are all beguiling us the ecstasy of love
Or perhaps, decoying?
Let not a doubt creep in your mind of love’s authenticity
If you have your dream lover
Instead be the author of another perfect love story
But be cautious, not to sugar coat it to the extent it turns saccharine.
Don’t think of him being a miser in love
But believe him just an ordinary cold-hearted being
Who dreams of affection now and then
Yet is afraid to delve in deep.
He wraps himself in a cocoon
And finds solace in his indifference
To all the things lovely and about love
As he finds himself unhurt by being unloved.
He’s ready to break his fences, freed his restrictions
Go the distance to unravel the intricacies of love
If only someone could make him feel secure
Make him believe the affirmative hearsay of love.
Then he’ll step out of his cocoon,
Then he’ll step out of his cocoon.
