When love ends, pain and regrets begin - inevitably

An emotion, ephemeral and fugitive
Swept him when he saw her last night
Bitter rage, childish and primitive -
But then he realized, he has no right!
Yes, the feeling drifted away quickly
But in its place, remorse and regret
For she’s kissing a man passionately!
So tonight, shall be difficult to forget
But he must! For she’s free to love anyone
Their love withered, and now she’s gone!

It’s her body, she is free. As he is.

Love is a strange thing. It cannot be contained one way or the other, driven by passion it could be true and faiyful or exactly the opposite.

@Francis: I didn’t realize I just coined a new word: “faiyful”. What I meant was “faithful “ not “faithful and playful”.
