I Dumped her. SHE wrote back.!!
It has always been a great pleasure talking to you. You have been a nice friend from the very beginning. But, of late I have seen a sudden change in your behaviour towards me. You have been a bit too rude in even the smallest of our trysts. Not that, I haven’t witnessed your mood swings ever before. We have been in a relationship from the past few years and for an ‘entity’ like me who was always so close to your heart, quite literally, these few years were much more than enough to know you as a person. Hence I know your forehead winks very well and believe me they are not of the normal type anymore.
When I recall our past, the reminiscence of the quality time that we spent together reflects to me as a great chemistry of two soul mates who were ready to be buried into ashes for each other. You always kept the flame of our love ignited between us even in the busiest of your schedule and I admired your love during your high times and even during lows. I was always a drag away whenever you needed me. I supported you in your fight; I supported you in your amity. Those good-night kisses, those early morning meets all was just as good as one could end oneself in smoke to live even a single moment like that and I did the same. I ended myself in smoke for your love. I burned myself down to ashes in your service. A drag, deep inside you, started being the only thing I was living for.
Slowly, the things started changing. The moment we had once cherished, were now becoming the scheduled tasks that were bound to happen even without the slightest of the feeling to do them. The love in the air that was once like a never-ending kindled flame started diminishing in the smoke of its own fire. You started repenting our relationship and I apparently became the biggest disaster that had ever happened to your life. You avoided me, you cursed me, but nothing worked out. Our love was strong enough to survive through all this and it did survive through all this many times in the past. It did survive through the adverse movements of clock. It did survive beyond the excruciating sandstorms of bad times and I was proud of my relationship with you.
But these days, I am missing that spark in our relationship. Those undue disruptions have certainly affected our chemistry like a tyrannical daemon. You don’t like me anymore the way you did in the past. You are learning to live without me and this fact is teasing me in a painful manner. I feel cheated. Those unconditional promises, those extensive desires have suddenly started appearing unworthy of it. The feelings of losing an integral part of my life that I had once found in you have started hovering over me, making me depressed, helpless and all broken. I beg almighty for your mercy, your attention and your love but all I get in return is a void response. Hence, I finally decided to write to you, the gravest of my feelings from the bottom of my heart. I know, this letter might not mean much to you as your own life is the only thing you are concerned about these days. But who cares? Firing my passions up in the service of your selfish desires is the very thing I have done all my life so one more time would not matter much now. Still in a hope to get you back, I put my pen down for the last time.
