They told me I was silly,
Playful and jolly,
But in reality,
I was lonely,
“You are just a boy,
In this cunning world filled with ploy,
And deceitful coy,
You only know joy”,
They know it’s not true,
I am the one and only love guru,
Spreading desire like the morning dew,
Giving hope like the sunrise view,
Not even a goddess can escape,
From my arrow love shall shape.
