Don't Look Back

Don’t look back in love,
I am resolute  to go,
Leaving this treacherous world behind,
And, these pretentious bonds,
I am destined to go.

Close your impulsive eyes.
You never looked at me like before,
You never will do the same,
If I stay by your side now.
Stop your callous tears,
They are of no gain.
Your deception is reflecting on them,
I can see their evil grin.

 Why this pretence even now?
I melt more than I could,
Now I am too hard to be dissolved,
I won’t give you a chance to bash again.

Look, what destiny has planned for you,
You’re still standing on that bridge,
The bridge, where we first met,
And, vowed to be together forever.
The bridge will witness again,
Our meeting, but for the last time ever.

Maybe there was bit of truth in your love,
Maybe I was wrong, but still,
I would choose to go.
Maybe I am not worthy of it.
I wished for some love,
But from the wrong person, I think.

Don’t look back in love,
Love doesn't mean anything to me,
Pretence has more powerfully
Engraved upon my heart.

Close your impulsive eyes,
Impulse has destroyed me,
Now leave my way to hell,
Your eyes will never allow me.

One more minute I wait,
I will lose my path,
Love will bite my neck again,
Again I will be the slave of love.
The bridge is smiling again,
And the birds are chirping the same,
Like it happened before,
When we first met.

I am afraid I smell it again,
The déjà vu is killing me from inside,
No more I want to be loved,
No more I want to die.

Your smiles suddenly seem to be pure,
Suddenly your love seems to be so true,
What happened, I am still in daze,
But it’s likely to be real.

The poem is written as per the above photo-prompt.
