A Poem by Farhan Shaikh

I said I'm fine when I was hurt,
I tamed my heart when it was burning.
When I said that, 'I'm there for you' I meant it
You said you need me, but didn't mean that s**t. 
And when I was in love with you, 
You didn't know how much I cared for you. 
Most of the time you controlled my emotions 
Made me feel like I am trapped in an ocean.
I miss the old me and the way I used to be, 
Just go away so once again I can be free. 
You took me for granted 
"To push me away" you planned it.
I wanted to be with you, smile with you, cry with you, die with you.
But you chose another guy
And I hesitate to say goodbye 
I was an idiot to go after you 
'Hey you crazy' said half of the crew 
You still screwed me up, 
Oh! but now there's nothing new 
And I don't know how but I'll get you out of my life, 
Enough of the sweet stabbing ,
'Oh! my god did my back hurt your knife' 
Even after tearing me apart you faked your words that you cared for me, 
You broke me down and now I'm shattered, 
Does it matter?
Yes it does, yesterday I red a quote, it said 
"They always come back specially when you moved on" 
And yet I ain't found a person who proved it wrong. 
Now just go away and make your guy happy 
Don't break him too like you did to me and make his heart all scrappy. 
You don't know what it's like to be me
Don't you ever try to feel how it's like to be
Not everyone is brave enough to face this s**t and let you free. 
I guess you heard my words,
Just know this, don't you ever turn back to me.
I'm broken and you don't know what it's like to be. 
I'm hurt treated like dirt,
I know I'm lonely now but one day I'll own this desert.

A conversation with oneself ... a lot of truth in this dialog of pain and recognition of I should and shouldn't, we all have those! Well done!
