Why Didn’t You See Me? ? - Poem by Poornima Kanasen
Thought you and I, inseparable,
Never did I know, any betrayal,
You showed me the meaning,
Yet, I did not see…
I did not envisage anything,
I saw you, not your hatred,
Bleary, I was, but you weren’t,
You knew exactly,
How unbearable, it would be…
You kept quiet,
Aforesaid, I saw you, not your selfishness,
Impotent, I was, but you weren’t,
You made me suffer,
I lost everything,
I thought, once, you would be there for me,
I inscribed you in my heart,
But, you shattered me into pieces,
Thousands of them till I couldn’t regain myself,
Did you not know that you were apart of me?
Did you not understand me?
I still saw you, not your betrayal….
Blamed, tortured, hurt and questioned,
My heart wanted none of that,
But, you insisted, without giving it a second thought,
I accepted because I saw you,
Not your intentions,
I only saw you, but you didn’t see me….
