PAST, PAIN & FUTURE (part 2)

(Here is the second part of the poem. I request the readers to again read the first part before reading this second portion. It will help you understand the poem better.)

I decided never to look back. I forswore.
Sure no one can ever sway
me. We will sunder, I never thought
But circumstances deterred me.
I cannot trenchantly say what
I want times to be
And what my retentive mind sighs for.
Unknowingly exacerbating my pains.
All these voices: I abhor
them. They make vain
all my attempts to assuage.
I know their care as genuine, still
I want to be alone as my pains I gauge
And for future make my mind tranquil.
They force me realize my mistake
That I am the one deserving blame.
They say I’m craven and I fake
My feelings insomuch that I am
trying to run from verity, and
That I am fooling myself so.
Pretending to be satisfied, and to defend
my decision. I force myself to show
I’m happy (They’re so true, yes)

to be contd..

    Can understand a tiny bit, though most of it went over my head.
    I can just get a hint of its beauty, would be quite helpful if you explained it a bit. Thanx a lot!

    @Siddharth did u read the first part? i hope u did. anyways, if u want me 2 give u the synopsis, here it is-The speaker is in a dilemma. Sandwiched between the past and the future. People are trying to console the speaker in this difficult time. But the speaker wants to be left alone. These people make the speaker realise that the phase (s)he’s going through now is his/her own creation. and the speaker doesn't want to accept this truth in spite of knowing that this is the truth.
    wait for the 3rd part..
