I  looked  into  the  pond,  there

I  saw  a  handsome  face

I  was  so  enamoured  that

I  fell  in  love  with  that  image


I  craved  for  its  company,  but

Didn’t  know  what  to  do

I  would  stand  near  the  water

To  look  at  him  and  rue


A  narcissus  syndrome  in  every  lovelorn  creature

A  mental  aberration  often  manifest  in  nature
