on my birthday
everyone wished me
saying i'd get everything i wanted

truth is
i don't want anything

the only thing i wanted
was you

and everything took you away
from me

the wishes won't be enough
the prayers won't be enough
the tears won't be enough

because my love for you
was never enough
Emaan Masood Jan 29
it's been a while
i know you feel it
i do too

was this it?
everything we built
was meant to end at this?

it's been a while
since i've been the reason
for that smile

the one that reached your eyes
and swelled my heart
oh so tight

but now your lips are clamped
with no words for me
as i have no words for you

the ones who wrote stories
of countless nights
have no words left
to say goodbye
Emaan Masood Jan 29
i hope you don't blame me
for where we are standing today

i know i talked about distance
of me getting away

but i promise to you
it's not me who let you go

i still remember our vows
of never letting go

but i can't hold onto you
once you've pulled away

i got tired too
of that vacant stare

and this is where time has brought us now
a stranger is what i see in you
Emaan Masood Jan 29
i've started wearing
dark clothes
because i'm scared
you'd see the stains

stains of blood
on the left side of my chest
where my heart bleeds
every single minute of every single day

it once had a home
it once belonged to you

you had it in your palm
a vital piece of me
yet you squeezed it
and threw it away

and now it bleeds everyday
yearning for the one
who let it get away

i can’t
i’m sorry i can’t
i want to
i really do
but please
be the first one
just this time
i promise it won’t happen again
i’ll mend my mistakes myself
but just this once
help me mend them
i need you
i really do
i can’t wait
this distance is killing me
it has been a while
i miss you
come back
to me

i need to talk to you
there’s so much to say
but i can’t find the words
my mind’s going crazy
every aspect is bad
every situation gets worse
i can’t do this own my own
i need you to help
get me out of this mess
i need you to help me
get me out of my mind
i’m scared
i’m hurting myself
and everyone i love
i can’t do this anymore
you need to help me get out of here

i need to check the chains
make sure they’re tight enough
it’s too hard
i’m falling too fast
this shouldn’t be happening
i need to stop
before it gets bad
it’s already bad
who am i kidding
im hurtig myself
i shouldn’t be doing this
