Love And Ego

Ehsan Sehgal

If someone reads
My writings, and asks me
You seem to very sad,
And offers help
To share all my sorrows,
But I hurt myself
For my the ego
Lie that
It is just the poetry
The illusion
No any reality of it
I know, I write the truth
In which my all feelings
Reflect and shine
If I kill my ego
I kill myself
If I don't
I kill my love
The dilemma
Between love and the ego
Force me to lie
So that I don't lose the love
And the ego.
