Star Crossed Lovers

She can’t see, she still loves you,

Can’t keep up, can’t let you go. 

Don’t you see, can’t you see?

You are just dragging each other.

It’s not immortal epic love, 

Cut out from a novel. 

No guarantee of the happily ever after,

But enough for both, if we stay together. 

Distance has numbed,

the bitterness of breakup. 

Now, you realise- you miss her. 

What you were, what you could’ve been. 

Act. 

Act before it’s too late,

To say or do anything.  

Tell her that you’ve felt the pain, too. 

The very same kind that you put her through. 

Acting like a brave loon,

You tried to kiss her under the moon. 

Slap! She strikes.

Rings the deafening sound. 

But, you won’t hear it, over the howl of my newborn wound. 

Tears stream down.

Unbidden.

Staining her beautiful face.

‘I loved you too, but it’s too late’ she says,

‘Cause I’m marrying someone else.’

You can see, she still loves you,

Can’t keep up, can’t let her go. 

Now you see & though you know,

You are dragging each other.
