We Broke Up

Ashutosh has no clue about poetic expressions. He just tries to be expressive with the thoughts in his head.

Mad love or bad love, nothing lasts forever. Not even the pain. This is just a journey down the memory lane.

Letting go is never easy

Where shall I start from
I don't really know
It was tough for me though
But I had to let you go
(had to let you go)

Don't wannabe selfish no more
What you did for me was way more
No sarcasm I swear
I ain't joking anymore
And I can never blame you
We both know, it wasn't your fault

This I must let you know
I loved you way more to let you go
Not trying to make amends here
too late for that,
Just want to let go of what I held
inside this long
That's about it, no second thought

A flawed human I am
May be a little messed up in the head too
Because I never thought this through
Or may be I did
I just couldn't believe it could be true

So we finally broke up
As I pen this words,
I'm kind of choked up
I do regret my actions and the pain I've caused
But listen babe, I am suffering too
Reminiscing at these pictures of me and you
Yeah! It tore me too

Wounds will heal
and the hurt shall pass too,
May be tomorrow, may be later
But will I forget you?
Perhaps, never!

It's all in the past now
It doesn't really matter, rather shouldn't matter
End of the day
We weren't bad people, maybe just bad together.

we-broke-up

For when I look back...

This chapter of my life would be worth a read

And I would always be thankful!

Well! I do have my pride,

but this I've learnt in life

When you messed up,

Admit, you did screw-up this time.

Haha, got carried away with your comment.

Thankyou :)

I really like this. You managed to be sentimental without being sappy. Nicely done.
