You Have Lost

Ehsan Sehgal

It is terrible
It is deadly sad
It hurts you
If you hear
If you know
I am not interested in you
You have lost
Your charm
Your simplicity
Your affection
Your trust
With your attitude
I thought
You were a wise
And a humble person
But you proved
With your practices
What you were pretending
You are not that
I wasted my time
You don't do as I did
Look forward
Someone else
For your best future
And happy life.
