Theme: Grief

Won’t You?

Hours after hours you talk to her,
Just like you used to chat with me,
She keeps your phone busy till 4a.m.
You don’t have time to call me,
How much more will I have to see?
How could you let me suffer like this?
Won’t you give me just one day then
To tell you what’s going on in my life?

Often I feel like asking you,
What was there between us 
In the past three years?
If you say it wasn’t love,
Then what was it, tell me?
Didn’t you ever feel for me?
Not even for a day, a minute?
Not even for a single moment?

Have you forgotten how close we were?
Sixteen hours a day we used to chat,
The best of friends we used to be,
Sharing everything about our lives,
My life is an open book to you,
But now you don’t even give me a scope,
To narrate my life’s journey to you,
Don’t you know I feel suffocated?

Day by day I am crawling into a nut shell,
I am burying my grief within me
It needs an outlet to flow, baby,
It needs you just to listen to me,
Every day with the burden of sorrows
I can’t move on, life can’t go on,
Won’t you then come to me one day
And listen to what I have to say?

Comment When it becomes like this, what choices does one have? Just the feeling of being abandoned, and desire to abandon!
