Happy endings…

Happy endings…


For a long time, i thought, it was going to be you. My happy ending was finally coming true. Us against the world, an imperfect but happy life. And then, it was just me. Alone, with my thoughts at dawn. I can’t even describe how it happened. The phone calls stopped all of sudden. People say, love is a growing emotion and I thought it’d be the same for the reverse. No apologies, no explanations, no accusation, it just stopped- our conversations. You didn’t bother anymore.

The only explanation- maybe you didn’t love me, maybe you never loved me. And that makes no sense. Not to me, not now, and maybe not ever.

Alone with my thoughts at dawn, trying to find the silver lining, of a crushed happy ending.

  1. Someone, and right now I can’t recall who, once said and the saying goes something like this:
    “when a door closes, a window opens”.

    I’m sure when the window opens, the fresh air will lighten and cheer your soul.

    A very beautifully written piece – well expressed and vivid.

      1. So true. My husband and I always tell our kids that, “you can’t always get what you want.” Such an important lesson to learn.
        Hope you had an amazing weekend Ammena.
