If Only

To those who have loved, those who weren’t bold enough to love and those who were loved but lost that love along the way!!

In the end, all that really matters are the people we loved,how they loved us back and the things we did for such love!!

The worst fate is to live a life without love.

So guys love deeply and truly. Without further ado, I present to you;


If only time’s winged Chariot never passed too quickly

If only I could flicker through time and pause or rewind it

If only I had said the things I ought to

If only I could see you hold me in your eyes once again

A century away it seems; that time when you once called me ‘yours’

From random greetings and conversations, our love story blossomed

Just like the Hibiscus flower at summer’s first smile

I was yours and you were mine

But my thoughts were never in line

Scared of my feelings and the hurt it could do,

I tried to keep it at bay

You expressed it; I suppressed it

You protected it; I neglected it

Without the proper attention, it withered away

Love is life; it must be kept alive

Love you; that I did

But a coward I was to own up to it

So I let it slide and acted like it was alright

When my insides cried out with all their might

We’ve seized to be; now I wonder if we’d ever still be

A veil has been lifted and I see clearer than ever

A thunderstorm of emotions drowning me after your exit

We see each other but it’s not as it was

An empty glance and a cold shoulder is all I get from you

It’s almost like we never happened

So I sit here by my window acutely aware that it’s time to let go as I watch you Slipping away from me;

Longing for you, yearning for that which I had so foolishly rejected and repeating to myself; if only…
