I Was So Dumb

I was so dumb.

I was so dumb to fathom all those enshrouded messages.

Whenever I yearned for your attention,

I was so dumb to make excuses for you, for not requiting.

When you weren't replying my unending texts and calls,

I was so dumb to have realized I might've been nothing but disturbance to you.

I was so dumb to realize that;

I wasn't even upto a piddling in your life.

The life I've dumbly planned my future in,

The life I could trade the world for,

The life that gave me hopes and unending dreams,

The life that gave me a reason to smile.

I was so dumb to realize that;

The life I've always wished for,

Would be the reason behind my uneding heart squirming pains.

I was so dumb to fathom that;

The life I've wholeheartedly thought would be nothing but a serene home to my yearning heart,

Would be as scourging to my heart as a knife.

I was so dumb to know that;

The heart in which I've craved to confide in,

I wouldn't be welcomed there.

I was so dumb to think that;

In your heart

I would find peace, joy and unending happiness.

Only if I wasn't dumb to know;

In there, between the veins and arteries of you heart,

There was nothing I could find but sheer anguish, heart detrimenting pains, and scourging desolations.
