Fairytale

​I met you in the most awkward stage of life,

It was called childhood.

We developed a relationship which was out of this world, 

And called it friendship.

As we grew up our bond became stronger.

And we slowly began discovering ourselves.

And with this we discovered the beauty of our friendship too.

All of a sudden you wanted to take things a little forward.

But I didn’t,

And at the same time I did not have the heart to turn you down.

So I quietly nodded to what you said.

And the smile that you gave me in return made my day.

We knew our limits though,

And never even dreamed of crossing it.

And this made me like you a little more,

But I told myself that this wasn’t love.

Then came a day,

Probably a test we had to pass.

Some other girl held your interest more than I did. 

I didn’t want to play the blame game,

And so I set you free.

That was when I realized how deeply I loved you.

I believed that if our love was true,

Cupid would be responsible enough to bring you back to me.

And so it happened!

You realized the value of my love and came back to me with sincere apologies. 

And we were back together again!

I was extremely happy and told myself that only happiness would follow,

But fate had other things in store for us.

Our love was put to test again.

We began to see our responsibilities more clearly,

But our priorities remained the same.

We stood by each other through thick and thin,

Our joys and sorrows were shared,  

Joys doubled and sorrows halved.

We did have our share of misunderstandings too,

But that did not alter our love for each other.

It instead drew us closer to each other.

There came by many obstacles,

But we stood up to face it together.

 With hope in our hearts and strength in our minds,

Hand in hand we stood.

We believed that we could face it all  if we were together.

Some defined it as friendship,

Some called it love.

But to me,

It was a fairytale that every girl would wish to have.

But I was lucky enough to call this fairytale mine.

Biggest Mistake

​He was one of my closest friends,

Or at least that was what I thought it was,

Until this one incident happened,

And everything came to light.

I considered him to be a blessing,

Coz he treated me like a princess!

He always stood by me in all that I did,

And corrected me when I was wrong.

He was there for me at all times,

Through the ups and the downs,

And for this I was ever greatful to him.

But the people I loved did not like him.

They felt that there was something wrong about him,

And so asked me to stay away from him.

But being the rebel that I was,

I stood up against them all and fought for him.

I thought I was doing justice to him,

But little did I know that he was going to betray me in the long run.

Then came the worst day of my life.

Never had I expected him to do this to me.

My world was shattered and my trust broken.

I realized that all of them were right about him,

And I’d blindly trusted him because of the love I had for him.

All the damage was done and nothing could be done to repair it.

I decided to stand up for myself,

Against all the injustice done to me,

And I threw him out of my life.

Trusting him was the biggest mistake of my life.

It was a lesson well learnt.

Somethings are meant to be learnt the hard way.

Feelings Untold

​It’s moments not days we remember,

The memories we make last for a lifetime.

We started our conversation with a smile,

Which was followed by a comfortable silence.

It was like we’d know each other since forever and not like we’d just gotten to know one another.

Getting to know you was one of the best things that ever happened to me.

I remember hoping that this happiness should last for a lifetime.

Your smile is the most beautiful thing I’ve come across till date,

It wipes away all my fears and sorrows.

It reminds me of the most happiest moments of my life,

And these were all memories of you.

It makes me smile the heartiest of smiles.

Your eyes, your smile, your face…. you.

The eyes are the windows to one’s soul,

And so each time i looked into your eyes i could see how pure and beautiful a soul you had.

Every time i looked into your eyes,

I fell deeper in love with your soul.

I felt a spark in my heart when i first saw you,

Which stays strong even till this very second.

I felt a strong urge to call you my own!

Who wouldn’t want to own a soul this beautiful?

But little did i know that this love story would remain a dream for me,

I would never be able to call you mine.

Some love stories are just not meant to have a perfect ending,

They die even before they are born.

Not because the feelings are not reciprocated,

But because they remain untold.

The silence might have been beautiful in the beginning ,

But it silenced our love story forever.

Alas! You are one dream that will never come true,

One thing that i will regret for as long as i live,

Coz I know my life would have been so much better with you as an integral part.

Some regrets are meant to be forever,

And some love stories are meant to be left untold.
