My Painful Reality

It took me a while to realize

Your love for me

It took me a while to realize

You were around all these while

 

Now, it pains me to realize

You are gone

It hurts to realize

To realize the painful reality

 

I’m all alone with my phone, to hold

Can’t fathom the fact that this world could be so empty

You were my silent world

You were my completeness and energy

You were the fuel that kept me going

 

My error was that ‘You never knew’

Now, I’m living to regret my rice without stew
