I Remember Those Lies

Rating: 4.7

I Remember those lies

I remember those lies
Those were spoken long ago,
Sitting in a green park
Or on the bank of river
I couldn’t recognize
This fair girl
Wearing the garb of a hypocrite

I couldn’t recognize
The smile of that girl
That was painted
In her rosy lips.
I lost myself
At the wink
Of her terribly wild eyes
And her concocted lies.
Her amorous look was,
At the time of every departure,
A thing to remember.
Her lisping words
Seemed true like a child
I couldn’t understand
That a day would come
When I would be beguiled.

I was a fool,
Just like an insect
That jumped into fire
To get ecstatic pleasure.
The fire has burnt
My heart and soul,
Though I live with flesh and bone
Yet in the world, I am terribly alone.

Shakil Ahmed.

The doublespeak of lovers can create not only misunderstandings but also grave problems for the relationship. Amazing portrayal of the situation. Thanks.

Deceit wears many disguises. But no one who seeks love is a fool. We are foolish only when we say we no longer need or want love. A very emotional, well written poem.
