A Friend or a Snake?

By Abdullah Khan

I know who you were, I know who you are

If you think I’m a fool, that makes you a fool.

 

I know you well, you think how?

I’ve been very, very close to you.

 

You texted me to romanticize the scene;

I replied: I want to know the theme.

 

You wanted to get rid of me?

I’m leaving; because I love you!

 

A friend or a snake that I brought up

Tell me what are you, what should I call to you?

 

O friend, you’re not as smart as you think

Should I give a dam, or should I just kill?

 

One day you will pay, and wish

to get rid of yourself from you.
