You Never Know

You Never Know

2 mins

People showing a smiling face but hiding the sharpest knives,

People who love seeing suffering and destruction of lives,

All in secret, others' sorrow is on what their happiness thrives,

Snakes in their hole, and wasps in their hives,

They're waiting to sting you when you can't be weaker,

They make your miserable life, darker and bleaker,

They hide and do it behind your back, and you're the seeker,

But in front of you, they subliminally draw your energy and pretend to keep you warm, like a heater,

But what you should be concerned about, is that you never know,

As to who these people are because they never show,

Their true colors until the moment they strike because then they glow,

Seeing you in pain, going down in life, while killing you slowly,

But once or twice you have them in your life and,

You'll be like "Okay let me just make an incision on my hand"

You're just satisfying them, next day over your cut you wear a band,

But they see it and smile, but change the curve of the lips, but you know you're already in the quicksand,

But you see, they won't be happy for long because karma comes back,

You'll see them go down and it won't cut them any slack,

It'll shut all doors in their life and derail them from every track,

It'll infiltrate their lives to such an extent, you could call it a life hack,

They'll see that they shouldn't have done it to you, they regret it,

They try to be significant to you again, don't even let them be your pet,

Because they're the reason that your eyes had got wet,

And your heart, in stone had set,

People who make repeated mistakes can be forgiven because they don't break your trust,

But if they betray you, then leaving them is the first step is a must,

You should let your heartbreak once again, feelings for them simply rust,

And you sit down and wait for time to settle the dust.
