952: You Said, I Read... - Poem by Amit Biswas

Everything was good and smooth,
Then came May 17, the fateful day,
You hurt but never came to sooth,
You chose the time, unilaterally parted way,

But you would insist I still stay,
You needed all that could come your way,
You said you trust, I read you betrayed,
You said you loved, I almost read hatred.

You said you cared, I read neglect,
You said you feel, I saw you ignored,
I curled up like a centipede, in pain,
You saw me in delirium and walked away

Predicaments or choice? I wish I knew,
Why so sudden? I wish I knew,
I wont miss you again, but look in despise,
Hate I cant, though love and hate are two sides of the same coin.
