Our hands were ‘entwined’
As we gazed softly at each other
Not knowing what to say.
Time was so precious to us
We never regretted. Did we?
Our fingers were ‘loosen’
Desperately trying to force the hands to clasp
To bring back the same warmth felt back then.
Life seems busy to you,
That’s alright. Go ahead. I will forgive you as always
I’ll be your strength to reach up high. I promise.
My hands were ‘free’, dangling in the air
Lying loosely by my sides
Sigh! I waited and waited
As the days passed with murk
Yet again, the familiar face was back
As calm as ever walking towards me,
Turned to me and solemnly grinned,
“Hello”, he sighed and paused.
“My heart wants you back”
He sighed again.
My demons crept up like shadows in the night,
pulling me into the swirling dark mist of memories.
I had so many things piled up, to ask
Oozing in every crook and cranny of my mind.
“Please say no more”, I paused.
There’s no need for apologies
Your deeds of betrayal were like poison darts.
The time’s granted me to ponder
That we have better destinations
Don’t ever touch me, even with your words
As they would leave scars of betrayal
Giving me wounds to which I succumb.
A deep silence prevailed in the air
“Is this your final verdict?”
He was stunned and taken back.
