MY FIRST AND ONLY LOVE.
On an average day, I fell in love with her.
She sat right opposite of me in the chemistry lab,
I couldn't help but envisage her being mine.
Her eyes were an ocean of stars,
And her smile made her a radiant goddess.
Her candour personality left me amused,
Her body swooned me away,
And her voice,
left me naked.
She had to be mine,
No escape from this,
I had no way to prove it,
But I was in love with her.
When she became mine,
I felt love,
I knew love,
I tasted love,
I smelt love,
I saw love,
For the first time.
On a Monday,
Four years later,
I saw her get intoxicated,
Her radiant eyes were shimmering,
She staggered away from me,
I tried to reach out, she slapped me,
Wiped off her tears,
Held out a sheet from my dairy,
"What did you do? What did you do? What did you do? " she asked
I tasted her heartbreak in the back of my throat,
It was bitter as cold coffee,
Every minute wounded, and I was waiting for my death.
"I'll love you forever and I'm sorry," I said.
She walked away,
Never looked back,
Left me there,
Bedden on a mattress of pain.
Two years later,
I can still hear her voice in my head,
I can still see her in the streets,
I still feel her scent on my body and sheets,
I’m still looking for her,
I’m laying with souls,
Trying to reconnect,
For it has never been the same.
I still love you my yellow bird.
