THE SELF DECEPTION

do not love me in such way, that I will be
alien among the familiar faces, 
don't say, that you're a 
defunct soul 
without
me,
my breathing stops, whenever, you say, 
even after the death, you will love
me in everlasting way,
do not make me
the divine
glow, 
let me remain as a earthen lamp, at least,
it wouldn't be painful, after 
extinguished, do not 
say that you've
loved me 
more 
than yourself, I'll not bear the 
self-deception !
