We’ve been apart for too long, my dear.

And lately, amidst these weird conversations

Between my heart and the horizon

on your side of the world, I wonder—

Why my thoughts

Are so drawn to you,

Even though I have felt sheer pain

From us being so far

From each other,

For which partly I and partly you

Are responsible.

I feel guilty

to be thinking about my petty misery

Amidst your never ending storms,

But Still my pain persists,

And I wonder

If it’s your heart reflecting in mine,

Telling me to reach out to you,

Or it’s just how broken dreams feel.

Either way,

You’ve shut yourself from me

To save yourself or me

from a certain misery,

And here we are


Me in the misery of longing,

And you…I can only wonder.

    How many of those hearts have you broken lady? 🙂 At least, I was right on one count – You should write more.

    If ever the person you wrote this for, chances upon the piece, it’ll help him heal just a tiny little bit too. I’m quite positive on that.

    Don’t be a stranger.

      Amen! I, too, hope it reaches the one it’s been written for. It’s like a message in a bottle, awaiting its rightful reader. I told ya–friendships are never effortless.

      Btw, about being a stranger, I just wrote something after reading this. Will share.
