The Ulterior Fascination

The Ulterior Fascination

The intensity of the lights dulls out
The rising sun of hope is taken over by the darkest clouds
As the words, I dread to leave your mouth.
Even in the terrifying nightmares, never did I see,
You speaking with such hatred and no mercy!
Darkness engulfs my world like never before
And to augment, clouds of grief, in my ears roar;
In deep dismay, I ask you, “Why?”
Although my own mistakes, I in no way deny.
But you stand tall, your pride stronger than my wails
Because to know your answer, everything fails
In that moment of despair, nothing at all do I clearly see
The earth below, and the heavens too, laugh at me mockingly
Sadness unfolds its most cruel folds
But you still stand, heartless and cold;
With the cards all in your favour, you keep smirking away
While I am tantalized, in a game I never intended to play.
Your swingeing excoriation, you made me believe was polite
Though never before, had I experienced criticism of such heights!
Your words were daggers and swords-
And each blow gave me a painful cut;
The wish to surrender, to give up and to walk away was too high!
But so was the hope that within you, I could bring change.
Oh dear goodness! I acted like an imbecile!
Yes, I wished to be with you, together side by side;
But alas! Wishes take time to turn true!
Did not even get a chance to say how much I am in love with you.
