When I watched you with love
You ignored me, carelessly

When I wanted
To tell you something
You did hear as not heard

Whenever I wanted
To listen to your sweet
And lovely talks

You lose and defeated
By your vanity
Now you want the same
That ever I wanted

However, the attitudes, which
Gave me the lessons

Now I have also worn
The silence, dumbness,
And blindness upon myself
I have said, goodbye to love
And affection
I don't fall in love anymore.
