Stranger in the Mirror

Does true love ever exist?
If so, why it has no place in my life?
I know where my love lies
When I realized what I am
Too late to change or challenge

My lovers changed from time to time
It was my senior in the college
My classmate in the final years
A close friend for some days
A colleague in the office for a while

I love them all even today but
I change them as I change my dress
Or do they change me for better?

I know it is a sin to love so many
As it carries a different name of shame
I know I am helpless
I know I hate myself

I know my love cannot last long
As most of them are unrequited
Changes are eternal
They aren’t deviant like me

Ah, when I introspect
I see a Stranger in the Mirror
