Killed By Expectations

I used to believe that fate

Was bringing us together,

But knew something long before I fell,

I knew you would go, I knew it too well.

Still, I used to set myself up with hope and always end up bathing in my own tears,

drinking cup of  bitter-sweet memories,

I met with disappointment when you left, like an illness.

Shutting down my dreams.

At times, I wanted to strangle myself,

As I was left with the realization that I’m always alone.

My heart cried in a piteous moan.

Life has tested all my patience,

And got killed by my own expectations.

Now you have become nothing but a muse.

I won’t blame you anything nor I hate you,

because all we had was nothing but a fairy tale of dreams,

Reality has slapped me with hammer of sorrow,

Soon you’ll forget me, soon we will become strangers again .. today or tomorrow.

    1. Umm. That’s really an interesting question… See we get to know many talented people on WordPress and there are some bloggers who write incredible stuff, far better than us. I think that’s what induce modesty in most of us.
