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.

Like. Thanks Brod.

@Francis: I didn’t realize I just coined a new word: “faiyful”. What I meant was “faithful “ not “faithful and playful”.
Full of surprises this Poeticous site!
