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….
Why?

    As you grow with years, you will find that this hardly ever changes. all you can do is get the hurt and frustration out with words...and these are brutually honest words about love and intentions of the other. And doesn't it feel great that you can write the hurt away...most of the time? Keep writing! ! (Report)Reply
