“He is not the one for you” , her grandmother told her while opening door for her.
She could feel her temper rising, ” How can you say that ?”
The old lady took a seat next to her ” Tell me, did he ever try to surprise you?,
Is he possessive ?
Does he value your presence?”
Her mind bell rang a big NO .
She knew he was not the perfect guy for her,
yet she wanted him back because they would be happy together.
I don’t know when we will meet next , he thought while taking a puff of the cigarette.
She had given him something to remember her forever, an ashtray.
“Why didn’t you tell me about it ?” he asked her.
“I have stopped wasting my energy on things that don’t matter”, was her reply.
I went home and knew she would be waiting for me.Just as I unlocked the door she cried “meow” out of nowhere, ran towards me.
A few years after , he left her
“Hey, how are you doing”? he asked her.
“Better than before”, she replied.
“Why can’t we be together?” he asked her.
“Because it’s better to stay apart and being in love than to be near and feel the pain”, she replied.
It seems that I have been walking long,
Not a matter of me getting strong
Yet it feels like a new day , when I know
The journey will end with me and my bag in tow
I am the only one to face the world alone;
When I know it’s me , and everyone else gone,
The sunshine falling bright into my face,
Bringing out the beauty from those youthful days,
I just know I have to face it all,
With no one to catch me when I fall,
Life might be a little boring and not that great,
But I am happy here, with no hurtful words being said.
Where did we go wrong?
Could I not give you enough love?
Or did you never feel it for me?
When did we start diverging?
Was it a month back ?
Or did you never give into me ?
Was there no apathy?
What if I stop calling and sending those texts?
What if I stop holding the last string between us?
Will you tie it up for us ?
Will you give us a chance ,when we need it?
I’m not sure about it anymore.
She knew she would lose again, that’s why this time she didn’t put up any hope , only to get back where she started .
