I never believed in love
Till I saw a smile on your face
A voice spoke inside of me
“Go for it young man
It is your moment”

Did it have to be you
Who would reveal the malediction
In trusting a human being
For the words you said
Were never true

Did it have to be you
Who would change the outward
Perception of relationships
By those insults you showered
At my face for involving a third party, your father
“Stay the hell away” said your brother
Was I not your lover?

Did it have to be you
Who would extend pretense
To cyberspace
Trigger my broken heart into a love race
I just had to block your permeation

Did it have to be you
Who would embody the unfaithfulness
Of today’s generation, it’s girls
With looks so innocent
But reciprocates the drama
In strange places not in public domain

When rejection comes, what next?

When rejection comes, what next?

Did it have to be you
Who would make me feel stupid
For thinking that love would love me back
“It comes and goes
Only leaving behind flaws”

Did it have to be you
Who would dash my hopes on the ground
Toss my feelings, thunderous heartbeats
At the sight of your countenance

Did it have to be you
Who would make me hate
The bed at night
for I cannot sleep on it
Failing to come to terms
Why you had to leave
When I needed you the most

My heart dearly loves you
But what point is there
In keeping a friend you no longer can sustain
Adieu! I said..it was time for moving

I gave you all the chances
That perhaps you could realize
How much you meant to me
That I had forgiven you
By those calls I did respond
The messages I but replied
Plus those words I uttered with a sigh

But lovelorn I still remained
You had deceived me
The pictures uploaded on cyberspace
Were enough for my mourning
Never did I inquire of them
Nor did you attempt to let the truth be known in time
You were happy hurting me
I was not

Just too late for you, Tom! I am taken

Just too late for you, Tom! I am taken

Today as I write this verse
Am reminded of the memories we shared
Whilst in the comfort of each other’s arms
Those promises

How am I supposed to forget
All we’ve been through together
The thick and the thin
I will miss you my love

Of the man you now have
Take good care of him
For I will be shy
To let you back in my arms again

“When boys quarrel
Girls do fight”

I will forget the late night calls
Remember not the mad curses
You lambasted me with
I will soldier on nonetheless
Indeed I will let go
Albeit so afraid of what the future
Might hold

so as the tears remain
I promise to inculcate my heart
To remain conscious, composed
And much more concealed

“And one sunny day
I will forget all this
And think of you, no more”

(By me…The God Centered Poet)
