Still The Same – An Open Letter By Shalini In Poetry Form.

Still The Same

When I see you, I freeze
like the water condensed
When I see you, I hush
like the morning dew
like the wind rush
Was it just a price tag you thought?
for how I fell for you can’t be bought.
Never have I ever asked for much
no diamond ring, neither flowers
nor stars to touch
Nothing extraordinary I asked for
a moment with you I’ll never forget
You did hurt me
but I couldn’t tell
Every time my heart ached
I couldn’t yell
You apologise
I forgive on the spot
Punishing myself with all
the pain I had got
Let’s be friends, speak to me you said
after all the moments shared and
the long hours we spent
When say Hi! I still reply
with all my heart, I say you hi!
You moved like it was a game we played
The pain, the emotions
down stay laid
Standing here, watching our love disappear
I ask myself, was it a mistake I made?
was only pain I deserve for all the price I paid?
But here I am

Being still the same….Still The Same
