A Tale of Two Different Cities

Due to 'I love you'
Little sorrow sat and wept
From the cradle to the grave 
For a man who never cared.
Just like the plants in his house, 
who silently begged to be watered,
That was how she begged for his love
yet his emotion towards her
was as cold as ice.

His anger was like a tempest,
At the slight provocation,
He unleashed his rage upon her.
And after every beating, prince charming
always promised to change
But no matter how a chameleon changes, 
 it'll always remain the same.
Just like the child of cobbler has no shoe,
That was  how her lover had no love for her
Yet she hoped... and died.


Bio from Agbo:
