Amazed I would look at you
believing your soul as great as your smile.
Little did I know
you were empty for more than a mile.
The show on the outside was
Heart-warming and bold.
But the moment situations changed
your shoulder to me got cold.
Trying hard in vain
I smiled at you against your jibes.
But I shuddered at your sudden aloofness
and the discouraging negative vibes.
Many a times I’ve heard
the first impression is last.
But while our first was a hit
the tenth was aghast.
Unsure of what’s between us
I try to clear my mind.
But memories of your harsh words
in my head, you’ve left behind.
Always wanted a friend
in whom I could confide.
But as my secrets travelled places
from you, I could only hide.
On my face you smile
showing you like me a lot.
But behind my back you rattle away
sending me deep in thought.
Stepping up in life
was your dream come true.
Old friends you’ve forgotten
while surrounded by the rich and new.
Seasons come n seasons go
the smiles have faded away.
Only your empty soul is what I remember
every single day.
