If You Only Knew.. (Edited Version By: Peter Mamara) - Poem by Aya Nasr

If you only knew, that I would die if I lose you.
If you only knew, that I accept all the pain you bring to me.
It is the cost of protecting you, not to get hurt.
If you only knew that when you believe
That my heart doesn’t beat for you —
And my tears for being afraid of losing you would not overflow —
It is like one might believe
That God did not make the entire Universe.
If you only knew, how many times
I've fought with my heart
And I put pressure on it so much to let you go.
But it always answered back: 'No.'
If, you only knew I'm trying to make sure
That your amazing smile would always shine like the Eiffel Tower,
In which case, it makes the sadness of your smile: mean.
If you only knew, that I was interested in you
Not for any other reason
— Except for your eyes, in which I found the real me.
If you only knew I've never been upset
— When you chose someone else instead of me.
Nor am I jealous that she was more precious to you than I could be.
But I just hope that if you decide to sell your heart to the highest bidder:
You won’t take into account my sacrifice.
If you only knew,
That my heart is in love with your heart and with your soul,
Maybe you would think to let her know how much injury she causes me.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

special thanks to 'Peter Mamara' by editing and fixing my first poem when i was a beginner, i liked this fusion

from the special words that told about this poem:

'If only the lovers knew....
What one's indifference
Causes to the other,
There would be so less tears to fall!
So less pain, so less heartbreak,
And the world would be with so much love,
Comfort and congeniality! ' -Khairul Ahsan.

    Full of love and emotions. Written with all of the love and passions
    that shoots arrows to the heart. Conflicting emotions really tears at
    the heart strings. Will take some time to mend. Stay positive. (Report) Reply

    An excellent poem that touches the heart! My two cents on this:
    If only the lovers knew....
    What one's indifference
    Causes to the other,
    There would be so less tears to fall!
    So less pain, so less heartbreak,
    And the world would be with so much love,
    Comfort and congeniality! (Report) Reply
