I looked at you with yearning eyes,
Hoping you’d stay by my side,
Helping me face the worldly ties,
Not letting go of me in high tide.
You shrugged me off your tight grip,
And let go of my hand again,
You saw me stumble n trip,
Yet you settled at your bargain.
I fought against the odds for you,
Tried hard to help you stay,
You chose to bid me adieu,
And faded in grim array.
You needed everything easy,
Termed me as trouble on your plate,
I saw myself as an unknown sleazy,
Breaking down with negate.
As time drew days n months away,
I realised you’d not return,
For each day saw mere dismay,
Its high time minutes stopped the mourn.
Now i know I’m stronger as ever,
Your thoughts don’t weigh me down,
I’ve stood tall n faded never,
I’ve been my own lost clown.
I feel the same for you as before,
There’s nothing to change that,
I only see a newer decor,
We’re not where we were at.
Today I’m glad you left my side,
It envisioned me to the real view,
It’s not really my fault to abide,
By the rules laid down by you.
