You Have Lost

by Ehsan Sehgal

If you were fair
If you were honest
If you knew humanity
If you understood values
If you were wise
If you had faith
If you were aware
Of shame
You didn't play
Pretending games
With a harmless person
To hurt him
But you did
For your ugly pleasure
By foolish ones
My enemy is only one
The lie of the liar
You proved that yourself
You abused my privacy
Through substandard means
You underestimated me
You degraded me
After all such events
How can you stand
In front of me
To tell one more lie
Of your false love?
You have lost all.
