People

a poem by

Sanal Kumar

I know these people
They are very selfish
Or
They pretend to be?
Yet
You were different
Treated me like a true friend
Cared me with a warmth of
Your presence
Comforted me with words of
Sunshine
My love for you grew like
A wild plant
I wanted to know why
You did all this
So I let open my heart
But
You refused to tell the
Truth
You too became like
Those people
Selfish or pretend to be?
