The Final Analysis

It’s been quite a while,
Since Love played the guile.

Leaving her feeling like a dried up tablet,
Forgotten on a shelf, past it’s expiry date.

Still at times the much battered heart beats madly,
Making her wonder, albeit a bit crazily.

Did Love really die from pangs of starvation,
Or, was the final prognosis an acute case of indigestion?
