She used to live far away from him but still they made a connect and wore the same thread of love. Universe also called them as birds who would never fall apart. He used to listen to her always and vice versa but there were some fights in between but it was understood that after the fight they would lie close to each other and laugh. This was love. Pure love.
They used to smile, cry, love, tease, discuss everything together but all these things left as a part of cyclone which was not in his or her radar, maybe it was the fight or something else, yes, something else, that could have been cleared but it didn’t. In reality, may whatever quotes or stories we get influenced to, we can’t leave the person whom we love. We can’t! If one decides to stay, with only one reason, s/he will stay till the last breath because s/he loves and accepts the negatives of their partners and knows s/he isn’t like that as they fell in love with the soul not these on-the-go negatives. He was all ears to listen and make her sleep again in his arms with her favourite story book.
Every memory of her shakes him like she is there saying ‘love’ but if you actually feel it was only ‘please don’t connect’- in a harsh tone. He is clueless. He felt left out. He thought people fight and they get more closer and promise to not deliver the same again, else they’ll go through sit-ups. He was unable to figure; what happened! There was a loss. He couldn’t bear but was finding ways to figure out a medicine which would tear away the emotional bindings and deep love. He searched all the chemist shops and returned empty handed.
She thinks of him everytime but is afraid to tell or maybe there is some other reason. She used to start her day with his voice wrapped in a blanket of love and curled around. He was all ears to listen but she wasn’t ready and gave him a red ribbon. He accepted and still colored that ribbon to green and presented her and she handed over a black one. He thinks they were playing some colour game. He colored every red ribbon to green but he thinks she wasn’t ready. He accepted.
He didn’t want to let her go like that; she didn’t wanted that either. She always looks good in yellow and he still wears her favourite yellow. They dreamt a lot and in real too. They enjoyed the air between them. Did he tell you that she is a beautiful bird who leaves a lasting impression, maybe? She would feel him curled around her and his voice for the rest of her life. A belief and faith.
Everything in a relationship has a cure provided we are ready to accept and let go the negatives.
He still thinks…
