The Game Is Over

Ehsan Sehgal

Never think
I will forget you
Your attitude was not appreciable
You didn't clarify
Nor proved
Your untold love
Affection, devotion
You remained the stranger
And not trustful
I tried to understand you,
But your tricks were awkward
As like the game of spies,
Who moral-less, mindless
Do the rubbish things
Around the globe
That didn't attract me
I left your dirty game
I still don't know
I did the right or the wrong
Maybe your love was true
Maybe I hurt you
Maybe you are happy
The game is over.
