You made me realise, finally

That you are not the universe

Though, you seemed like my destiny

But our paths were transverse


On one point of our journey

Our paths did intersect

But then we went our separate ways

And I still wonder why we met?


You confessed then tried to feel your love

While, my love for you was true

Your face alludes to partner

‘Cause for me, love means you.


It’s a request, a humble one

That even if you pass through

Don’t stop, just walk past as a stranger

Play your stranger role and help me live without you


And before you leave, please answer

One last question as a mate

What’s acceptable to feel towards you now

Love, ignorance or hate?
