The Final Good-Bye

Finally a time to say good bye
A time to let you go
A time to accept that you do not belong with me
That we were not meant to be.
I knew that this would come
One day or the other.
But reality is so different from imagination,
Life is so short, so unpredictable
Full of twists, turns and it's own funny games.
You meant the world to me.
Oh God! you still do.
I can't say goodbye however hard I try
I just can't let you go
But I know I will have to
Coz you're not mine!
Tears drop, heart breaks
but I know I have to understand
that we are not meant to be
only if it was all so simple.
will you be mine was the question i asked
'I cannot be yours" was the answer you gave
And came the world- toppling, tumbling down on me
I still will say
"Beside you you will find me always--
No Complains No Demands"
My love is a little selfish
It wants the whole of you
I want to be with you
But can never bear seeing you upset, sad or distressed.
I wish I really had got that second chance
But probably there's no second chance in love.
can't say you memories are enough
Nothing less than you is enough for me
Since I can't have you..
I'll have to do with the memories. 

P.S.: I wrote this when I was sixteen. I know, kiddish and stupid but back then I thought I was an awesome poet. :P
Yes, this poem is here to prove how terribly pathetic I am when it comes to poetry! :P

Aahhh!! This just made my day! :D
Thank You so so much!!
And, I don't know. I have tried and failed. Poems are just not my cup of tea.
But I am so glad you liked this. :)

Abey oye, stop being modest or under rating yourself. You don't need flowery words and bombastic ism to be good.
No complaints no demands* however reminded me of Ajab Prem ki Gazab kahani for some stupid reason =))

Anuranjani said...

Yes. That it is. Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani stole my line. :P
Jokes apart, I had read it somewhere just before I wrote this poem! :D
And, Thanks! :)
