Converse

I knew
real love is to give without expecting a return
but I waited for those kisses
that’d made me stunned.

I knew
forgiveness is the only key to happiness
but I couldn’t forget myself
for forgiving you often.

I knew
letting go off the things get you get them back
but I couldn’t let go off the thoughts
to always get you back.

I knew
holding onto few things does not make a sense
but I hold on so tightly
on our happy memory’s stack.

There was only crime that I made
To fall in love with you without a reason
There is another crime that I wish to make
To get a chance for its revision.

    This is awesome Neeraj. i agree with every word. I find myself saying that ‘he’ was a life lesson – one that was good and bad and that i should let it go – keep the good, forget and forgive the bad….. I am not good at this stuff – I suck and it upsets me that I do l cannot and that i let him have this much over over me. Here is the clincher – if he was call me – I would be right by his side! DAMN!

      We all live in this dilemma everyday ’cause we still are in love with the same old person. It is tough to let go. Hugs to you dear!
