For the Hindsight of Love
I had a huge crush on this girl,
I still have.
She lived far away from me.
Not that chatty or a typical girl.
Has a background so normal
Not so perfect, not so lame!
She liked the sports
Especially, running, trekking
And, sometimes, photography for a change.
She tries, fails, likes a boy,
Thinks, over-thinks, looks for a joy;
Could we get any more info on her?
Well, she is not exactly private kind of person,
But often, sips her coffee in private.
Okay, you caught me;
She, sometimes, is lazy in following rules and regulation.
So modest to acknowledge
That she knows enough about her field.
But she is trying to indulge in the conversation,
Makes a way to a stranger like me
To, maybe, get into her heart.
No, she is not that difficult to talk to
It was the circumstances which were difficult.
Going through the forcible talk was unbearable
And became a burden;
She broke it.
She broke it!
She broke it so hard
That I lost myself in oblivion.
I couldn’t handle even the snippets of that chapter
Which ran for almost one and a half year.
I found out later
That she never exactly left.
She was always there
With an upfront apology,
Open to communication.
Instead, it was me
Who turned the back on her!
We cleared the slate
And the drums start rolling again
The universe has no way to concur
On our relationship.
Perhaps, there was no plan.
Perhaps, I only have to make a design of this something-ship
With the help of her complying stance.
Now, geographically, our distance becomes shorter
But there is a long path I need to cover.
Fret not, my dear reader!
I am writing a story,
Page by page,
Chapter by chapter,
Coincidences, incidents and verses.
She’s already my muse.
Let her character be alive,
Correct my way of knitting this journey.
And, one day, she eventually would turn to me
“I had a huge crush on this boy.”
“I still have.”
