The other way

“I decided to move on with a heavy heart,
for I knew our love was torn apart.
Here lay my heart,
with feelings suppressed;
All the memories we have shared,
have only left me in a mess.
Never knowing if we’d have a chance to get back together,
Just tried to forget what we had with one another.
Pretending that what I felt was through.
I went around telling people I’m over you.
I’m tired of hearing and telling [those] lies,
Because every time I try part of my heart dies.
We both have reasons, both know why
Let’s let things go before I start to cry”.

I wrote this poem on 5th of July, 2012. I had forgotten all about it, until a friend mentioned it to me. I don’t make a copy of things that I write. Sometimes I mail them to friends, and sometimes I just lost them. And years later when I try to recollect the words that I had written, I fail. Nothing comes to my mind. I was looking for this poem for a long time, but couldn’t find it. I am grateful to my friend who searched it and gave it to me.
This is not just a long lost peom, it’s a part of me too. A part I no longer am, I longer carry. But, once in a while, it’s good to be reminded who I was, what I felt and what I fought for. Thank you so much.

Stubbornly optimistic, a listener of the universe and follower of my dreams. Coffee, smell of new books, long walks, old melodies, good sense of humour, and poetry light me up. I want to be happy when I grow up.
