You didn’t let go of me

You kept telling me to go back, that I shouldn’t be out here, in this wilderness, that it wasn’t safe. And yet, contradictory to your words, you didn’t let go of my hand, you didn’t let go of me. You held onto me as if I was the very gravity that pulled you to the…

I wish we had more time

The inevitability of what’s to come, makes me feel so helpless. I know that I can’t and that I shouldn’t, and that I have no right, to stop you from going. A part of me wants you to go back, far away from all this cynicism. However, the other part of me, the part that…

A forever with you

Your hand in mine, my head on your shoulder, your other arm on my waist, holding me close to you. The light just enough to light up your face, at this beautiful break of dawn, that’s bearing the witness to something so special between us. No amount of time feels enough, when spent with you….

Your Love

You can’t even begin to comprehend how amorously it warms my heart when you address me as your love. The way you take my hand in yours, such a simple gesture and yet, claiming me as yours at the same moment. I can’t even explain to you how exhilarating it is to know, that you…

I’m not you

Please. Just stop trying to control every fucking thing in my life. Who to talk to, what to wear, when to sleep and what to feel. Please just let me be. I know you care, want only good for me, but it gets suffocating, constantly trying to mould myself into the person that you want…

From Suffocation to Contentment

Suffocating it was, to not be able to say what I really wanted you to know. Maddening it was, to keep pretending to be okay with everything. Relieved I am, when on the second day, I told you that I need time. Content I am, now that you know, exactly what I want and need….

Liberty to be Free

I saw you today, in one of my dreams. And for the first time, my heart didn’t ache, like it always used to. I should have been an emotional wreck, but it barely affected me at all. And I guess, I’ll now take the liberty to declare myself, as officially free from the overwhelming feelings,…

The Breakdown

The day before yesterday, I had a breakdown. I thought I was better now. I thought I was over it all. Everything was going well. I was exceptionally happy and content with everything in my life. But then, it hit me like BAM! I couldn’t speak, couldn’t even comprehend what others were saying to me….

Dear Stranger

Dear Stranger, our meeting was a pure coincidence. Started with emails, continued with texts. Then, the calls started, and the late night video calls followed. From my first relationship to my first ever heartbreak, you’ve been with me, through them all. You’re annoying sometimes, but you never let my smile falter. Even though we’ve never…

A Promise I couldn’t keep

“Promises are made to be broken,” this is what you tell yourself, only to put yourself in a good light. “I’ll always be there for you.” Well, where are you now? “You’re the only one for me.” Like hell! “I love you.” A terrible, terrible lie. “I’ll never let anyone hurt you.” Well this one’s…
