I am sick of all your lies,
I can’t ever see through your disguise,
But I try so hard to find the truth in your eyes,
That I am broken and bruised on the inside,
You say you are sorry,
And I tell you that it will be alright,
So we get back to living the good old days,
Until a fight break out,
And you want to leave again,
For you love playing this game,
‘Cause you know my love for you won’t change,
You say that you will leave this time for the good,
And I beg you to stay one last time if you could,
‘Cause I honestly don’t know what I’d do without you,
So you are the predator and my heart is your prey,
You are like a con-man who doesn’t need to stay,
And I beg you to give us one last chance,
You push me away so you could have it your way,
Keeping your heart cold, you fail to see,
I am fragile but it wont stop you from breaking me,
All along, I had mistaken you for the cure to my pain,
I was such a fool in love,
That I didn’t know you were just the same,
There were no exceptions to the rules of your game,
I was just another name you wanted to claim,
And it’s all my fault and I am to be blamed,
I should have never trusted you with my heart,
‘Cause now I just can’t let you go,
Yes, I just can’t stay apart,
But who knew I was doomed right from the start,
All I know now is that I am the pariah,
I belong nowhere and to no one.

I have not been active on WordPress lately because I have been super-busy. I will get back to reading and writing soon. Thank you for the patience and love. 

About globalunison

Writing is my passion and that is what I do here on this blog. I write about everything, whether it be Nature, Love, Hate, Relationships, Humans, Personal Life (where I discuss lessons learnt through real-life experiences), Food, Philosophy (sometimes) and much more. I write in any form whether it be Prose or Poetry. I am in search of ‘Myself’, hence there is not much I can tell you about me. Perhaps, I have a very brilliant idea. Why don’t you come along with me on my journey? I will always care to share and you can also enjoy the ride. For now, this is it. I am ‘ME’ – a wanderer in search of a fulfilling life. Until next time, Love Living Life! I express my sincere gratitude to all my Readers! -Naima

  1. Very good poem. This could be a song. This person sounds like a manipulator.

    • Manipulator or a liar — they are all the same, aren’t they? (Lol)

      You got me there — I wrote it like lyrics to a song otherwise my poetry have a different flow. Thank you for your comment (:

      Warm Regards,

  2. This is painful but it shall pass.

  3. Wow…I´m kind of wordless…Do I recognize myself in this poem?…It feels as if parts of it could have been written by me.

  4. amoafowaa

    Arrg. Love and complexities.

    Aah…so much negativism…. and you told me not to be damned….whose damned now? My Queen of the Damned……

    • Hah, that was funny. It’s not necessary that people feed off pessimism — sometimes letting out what you feel is how you progress and move on but may be all these things won’t ever make sense to you because you have to be sane to understand that the first step to healing is acceptance.

      I am not ‘damned’ (I am using this word because you used it). I am a poet.


  6. Sweetness of pain from our dear ones kills us bit by bit and the surprising part is, we enjoy it. We crave for it. We can bear the pain but not be away from the dear ones. Hope you can find some closure and be a bit more happy 🙂 Loved the line “I was just a name to be claimed”

    Everything will be just fine InshaaAllah 🙂 I wish you don’t fret over this :/

  8. Sadly beautiful. Letting it out is good.

  9. This poem is absolutely beautiful. And I can relate myself with it in some parts, playing the antagonist, unfortunately. 😦
    Anyway, great job as usual, Naima. It’s been a while since we’ve looked at each other’s blogs! Would love to see you checking up on mine!

    Warm regards,
