[POEM] Hating the mirror

I’ve been sad, lonely quite a number of times.
But that didn’t stop me from facing myself.
Then you appeared as bread, for the hungry me,
And opened the gates of your love for myself.

This love was the only thing left for me,
And it filled all the voids, brought up a smile…
But, if one day you had to leave like this,
Why did you walk beside me, those 2 miles?

I had you with all my trust
And you left me to rust. To rust.
For the eternity I cried, I begged my god to have some mercy,
But neither he heard, nor you cared. So,
I’ve started hating the mirror.
I’ve started hating the mirror…

I remember that day, when in the classroom,
You came near me decently and asked my name.
And, I as a friendless girl, shook your hand,
With a smile upon my face, uttered the same.

I wished soon then, if we ever got together,
It’d be the best thing to happen, and I’d want nothing more…
But who knew you would leave me crying in the same class,
And alone walk out through that door.

I had you with all my trust
And you left me to rust. To rust.
For the eternity I cried, I begged my god to have some mercy,
But neither he heard, nor you cared. So,
I’ve started hating the mirror.
I’ve started hating the mirror…

Unfortunately, this isn’t the end.
One day, I’ll come back, to you, and I will,
Wash all your memories, and will end this rust,
And I’ll swipe you away from my life like dust.
That fine day, I’ll look up to myself.
But till that day, I’ll keep hating the mirror..
I’ve started hating the mirror.
