To The Stranger I Wish I had Never Known

Every time we talk
It’s like I’m pretending
I don’t even remember me
I’m just someone who’s perfect
For you

What does that make me?

I wanted to shave my head
I wanted to tear my clothes
And just run

Because I can’t sacrifice
I don’t want to be yours
I have never been owned
I never will be

I was stuck
But i was with you
And somehow that was
Supposed to bring me peace,
You were supposed to bring me peace.

But you never did.

You loved me a lot more
Than I deserved
You gave me a lot more
Than I could ever handle

I’m sorry now
Even though it won’t
Make much difference

You’re already imagining me
In someone else’s arms
While I’m seeing a happier
Version of you, of us

I’m still a self-centered prick,
You know?
I still think of us
Together
Even after
Unloving
Everything
About you
That I’ve
Learnt
To live
Without.

(I’m also a liar, but you’ve always known that)

      1. Don’t trust and expect nothing. I don’t even know how it works but i suppose that’s what I’ve been trying to do all my life. I honestly think that I’m incapable of changing myself for someone else. I can’t imagine committing myself to some other human being. It’s all impossible in my head.

      2. As a matter of fact I did. I was wondering if it’s going to be of any help in the long run. I suppose you must have a rough idea or something.

  1. Now this is amazing Nameera!
    ‘I still think of us
    Together
    Even after
    Unloving
    Everything
    About you’, isn’t that actually still loving the person.

      1. Oh we have mastered the art. Is it to protect ourselves from falling prey to the fall again, to preserve ourselves from heart-breakers? I guess so.

      1. You’re welcome.
        I am glad to hear that.
        I can completely understand that. Been there, which means always there. What might seem easy sometimes pops up ever so often.

        Take Care. 🙂
        I know I am a complete stranger, but if you would ever like to talk, I am just a comment away. 😛

      2. That’s real sweet of you!
        I will, you take care too. And yes, I’ll keep you in mind whenever I need someone to talk to. You can do the same. Sometimes, it’s easier to talk to strangers than people we’ve known for years because strangers know so less about us & hence that leaves no space for judgments (:
