When He Said He Loved Me - Poem by bakuli bhakali

When he said he loved me
I made the sketches
On my journal
Of little fishes swimming in the stream
And I picked no fisherman boating around the lake
But just the purpled weeds surrounding it
Filled the pages
With life and laughter
But now
For a while
They’re left blank
And it’s just the scents of the old leather-bound book
That reminds me of those colored sketches.

    Nothing stays, only change is permanent. We have to accept the change and move on. Nice write. (Report) Reply

    Thank you, Kavya! I would love to obey your advice. But I believe, we can’t always walk over the old wounds. So, either we must learn to live with it or try to heal.
