I must say I love the fake sad look in your eyes
You almost had me fooled there for a minute
I almost believed it wasn’t just another lie
But I recognized the untruthfulness that lies within it
I must say I love the way you lower your voice
When you say that you never meant to hurt me
When you say you’re sorry but it’s your choice
I guess it’s your damn right to hurt whomever you please
Who’s to say that it’s not ok to break my heart?
That you can’t say I love you and not mean it?
Who’s to say that you can’t tear me apart?
That you can’t make love and not even feel it?
You live by your own rules and regulations
Hurt. Fake. Take. Make a promise and break it
Your cold heart will resolve the hardest situation
When you’re tired of an old love just trade it
I just want to say that you can’t hurt me anymore
I’ve finally found peace and put myself back together
Now I can easily see what I couldn’t see before
I simply deserve someone better

  1. Painfully beautifully…

    Make a promise and break it. Why not, “Make a promise that you later break”?

    Well-written Bassem, mashalla 🙂

  2. sedna, thanks dear 🙂 and u know what? i thought of writing it like u said but then i had to change it to fit it with the line after the next one.. “trade it”

    ticklo, lol my blog my rules 😛

  3. This one is really killing 😦

    There is nothing I hate more in life than “LIES”. It shocks me how people become so professional when it comes to lying and we, we end up being pathetic for believing them due to our good nature!!

  4. Unfortunately u hit the bull’s eyes 😦 I saw tht happen, but what made me sad then was that even though I was thr for my friend i couldn’t help her…

    Sometime later she realized tht she deserves someone better and tht it wasn’t her mistake tht he was unworthy and untruthful…

    this poem feels so much alive, the poet or should i say the hero 😛 seems truly betrayed..

  5. Susu, Haven’t we all met a “professional liar” in our lives! It is very sad how some take lying to such high levels! And you know what? never change your good nature because it what sustains us in life

    NoOoOoOn, you can’t really help someone in such situation. You just have to be supportive and carry her through it because as you said, she’s the only one who can really help herself.
    Everyone has been betrayed in a way or another so it’s easy to relate
