I'm the one who made you cry
Broke your heart and told you lies
and now what could I say?
Should I touch your hand and spout clichés
about time healing all wounds
and how you'll forget about me soon?
But I couldn't do,
I wouldn't do, even though I knew
that you deserved better
than a cryptic letter
and a cold stare
from over here while you're over there.
But I could never look at your face
or feel your gaze without feeling ashamed
so I stay distant and cold.
The arms that held you, now are folded
across this chest
where you laid your head
while I told you lies.
And the one you loved you now despise
and it's my fault,
it's my doing, I should have crawled
I should have begged
I should have kissed your check and held your head
against my chest and said sorry.
Would you have forgiven me,
or pushed me away or slapped my lips?
The lips you kissed
before I told you lies.

Very genuine
Very genuine the best way to have narrated a tale of twisted dilemma...of some things that the mind overtakes in our lives and makes us do what we last wanted to do!
