Strangled Bonds

I never thought you would complain…
Why I am running after you?
All of a sudden every talk now burdens you.
A heart so soft once became so tough…
We used to talk days and nights,
Now we always end up in a fight…
Everything I do now is all wrong,
I somehow feel, to you I do not belong…
To take the blame is never you,
It is always me whatever I do…
And when things go too far,
You always run leaving me with scars…
Get hurt and cry every time,
But now it doesn't matter to you ever…
It was not you but me who ran after you…
Something is faint pulsed, struggling to breathe...
I struggle hard to lend my breath, my heart and my soul
But alas, you feel it is a worthless game of life.....
