Giving Up

Its not like I don't care
Its not like I don't want to share
I just get frightened that
I'll again get used to you being there

Then you shall leave me behind
Without even turning back
The colors you brought in
Will then soon turn to black
I still want to talk to you
I still want to love and feel
But if I see you everyday
How do you expect me to heal?

My present seems to bother you
My past meant the world to me
How do we get a balance here
Any solution do you see?
When the us broke into me and you
It poisoned me to the core
I don't want to live in a mirage
I'd rather stay alone on the shore

There is no point in more tries
Multiple knots shorten the thread
We can manage to live apart
If not, I guess we'd be long dead
Today what we have become
We have only ourselves to blame
We should have stuck it out together
Instead of being all tough and lame

I still remember your touch
The memories always hurt bad
What's the point in thinking now?
We'll only end up being more sad
I'm sure you'll do good
Being the wonderful person that you are
I'll only want the best for you
Even if you are miles far

I shall always love you
You can still see it in my eyes
The only reason I gave up
Is that I wanted to end my cries

  1. Holding on is hard especially when its not as easy as it shud be. Ones the heart is hurt it becomes a skeptic and nothing makes it stable enough to trust. Sometimes letting go is the best for both. Life goes on and time heals the hurt. We can be hopeful cant we ?

    We can manage to live apart. True line!

  20. Soumya,

    Trust in a relationship is like silken thread. Once it breaks you may join it by tying up but then the knot remains. Feelings after break up said so well in poetic way.

    Take care
