FOR ALL THOSE LOVE STORIES THAT PROBABLY DESERVED A BETTER ENDING.
My heart was racing as
tiny sweat beads trickled down
I was beyond ecstatic
thinking about this person I’d found.
complete with hearts and kisses
Stolen glances and silent nudges
slowly we put together the pieces.
Then one starry night,
the bliss was all mine
A blush and a ‘yes’ later
began something divine.
You became my confidant,
doubled up as a partner in crime
A best friend before anything else
together we stood the test of time.
Our secret getaways
were rather adventurous I’d say
Spontaneous, audacious, crazy days
were far from all things cliché.
United by affection
divided by rituals
unfazed by the latter
only love remained residual.
We made memories and
built castles in the air
Only to see them crumble
into heartache and despair.
My heart shattered into pieces
emotions went black and blue
one chunk remained to be unfound
and my world turned askew.
Has it crawled its way to you?
Cause I’m not ready to bid adieu
If you find it, preserve it
Cause a piece of me yearns to be with you.
