Im·bro·glio




It's gonna get obviously haywire, when a woman as passionate as I, falls for a man, as detached as you. There's flames going up in the air. That's bits and pieces of me, burning. I stay awake nights, procrastinating telling you. Wallowing in my shame. And tongue-tied-ness.

It's been this way for years. Yes, years in our such short lives. And I worthlessly realize that your love has rendered me incapable of nursing that emotion for another man. Even in forever.

I set imaginary deadlines, for culminating this thing that is. This thing that we have. And in my sleep, keep pushing that lazy frontier of time. Telling myself that this wait is worth every nanosecond in it, even if I don't get to have you at the end of it. Because, you are the only one. My solo.

It's you or no-one. So, I don't do anything about me. And I don't sit still either. I fret, cry, pray, in whatever intervals I get in between phases of loving you.

I look at distant blue windows and dream. And tell you, fall for me already. Fall, already.

You shrug, every time. And walk past.

Sometimes we don't realize the difference between 'we can't move on' and 'don't want to move on.'

What a deeply passionate and intense person you are..I am blown away. You were meant to be loved, heart and soul with every last breath of ones being. I hope and pray that one day this fool will realise what is right in from of him..be patient.
Take care, God bless and be well.

@Raaji,
I have moved on in the past. Need be, I can in the future too. But just don't want to..I know you know how that feels.

You should watch me scatter into molecules when I heart-break. Thank you.

You remind me of myself a year back, begging for love. I don't like that 'me' now...I don't.

Let's come back to this post a year later. If we are still around then.

Btw, a li'l respect for my sake. Let's not call him a fool, we're talking about the man I love.
