I thought I knew you.

I thought I knew myself.

I had everything planned to the core.

But I didn’t know

That my self-righteousness would play

Devil’s Advocate

With my heart!

I did not … I could not!

And just when I was too sure,

Too sanctimonious,

Like an over smart halfwit

The harsh reality cut open

My shallow vanity as I slumped

On my face, the bitter truth

Barging in through the weakened doors

Of mine, crashing like tsunami waves

As you left with your ego and my sanity

Without a word,

Without an emotional manifestation!

How could you do that?

How could I not see that coming?

And I thought I knew you …

I thought I knew myself!
