I Am Sorry

Ehsan Sehgal

I did not know
I did not promise
I just lied
To do, away you
In your favour
And your lovely life
I hurt myself
With my lies
I did not want
A person, who spies,
Made the false moves
And fake ways
To achieve ugly intentions
But I also pretended
As I fell in love
To counter and dodge you
I apologise
I am not a person
Who causes to hurting others
I do not know
How will you feel
If you were real and serious
That makes me worry
And also sorry, very sorry
For all awkward events
That separated us.
