150 days...

We talked. We spoke. We shared. 
We saw. We met. We kissed.
I cried. You wiped. We parted
We fell in love.
We laughed. We shared. 
We became a part of each other.
Then came a shadow,
lurking from the past.
We fought. We argued.
Unlike the times,
we bickered.
We grew distant.
After 150 days,
we weren't we anymore.

Disclaimer : In the darkest moments of my pessimism, I came up with this. It, thankfully, doesn't apply anymore, but it came very close to being true. But as I have realised, I'm really getting pessimistic and with this poem I hope to have removed it from my system. I hope not to be pessimistic again so that atleast there isn't a self fulfilling prophecy. A big thanks to 2 special people- One who heard me rant in my pessimistic mode (even though I think he wanted to kick my ass) and one who let my pessimistic thoughts be just that -Random Silly Thoughts.

I think the pessimism will give way to unparalleled optimism and huge happiness. I'm glad that it wasn't even close to being true. It wasn't. And you know what....When it comes to thinking..The thoughts which cultivate in the moment of pessimism may be right but then the way which leads to those things happening is less painful if you are being optimistic.

And as far as your writing skills are concerned...Epic \m/

Every word in your blog is filled with lot of emotions. I can empathize with your poem, but then, it's all part of the game called 'life'. Unless we face defeats in between, we would never appreciate the worth of winning.

God bless you.
