Part 1: Untitled Tale that will break all hearts
It has been a few years,
With Some lies & Fake tears,
A story of worthless bard,
was studying a bit of hard,
Most of Times it was Library,
was An Usual Person, Not a Fairy,
A night with his college friends,
checking Facebook feeds & youtube trends,
With a notification on his phone,
Received a Message from someone unknown,
With excitement but still some doubt,
chatting was not something of, he could be proud,
A Normal Conversation without expectations,
This was really not in his daily operation,
Not an Innocent, but still simple,
It’s really hard, Talking to an unknown girl,
Days, Weeks, then Half of a Year,
She was his smile, He becomes her dear,
She fell seriously sick so,
She had to close her account,
He only had to miss, was that notification sound,
Few Months of closure, doors opened again,
Gossips of the time gape, conversation was going really insane,
Days of her bed rest, Playing 100 of truth and dare,
On Just a social Network,
It’s very hard to take care,
Searching over the internet for the cure,
Still not done with his efforts, something can be done for sure,
Days of problems were then over,
How much he cared, it was impossible to show her,
Two were no longer unknown, it have been more than a year.
Both were quite ready to switch the gear,
They were just friends, but friends started to tease,
The feeling of Love was next to seed,
Maybe she had something but still, girls are so shy,
It was so real, not like He just wanted to try,
It was quite needed when friends were forced to open hearts,
Typing an ‘Accepted Proposal’ in the poem was not that smart,
She Nodded on chat but added to wait,
Still, it was enough for friends to congratulate,
Thousands of feelings, hundreds of promises, They soon loved birds,
Never Met, or Heard each other, where they just bunch of words,
Well, Time and Wait was no more needed,
If something happens we will be at least friends he pleaded,
A piece of Socialism was soon there to affect their life,
She still insisted that they will always be husband and wife.
Two people from ‘distances’ that doesn’t even have a scope,
He started to give away, but she still showed hope,
Both had that fear mind But it happened so fast,
A bunch of notifications are only there for making everyone’s heart ‘blast’,
He had her hope, But She had to give up,
The message from her brother was to stop this stuff.
She was sorry, but he was in pain, promised to be Happy from tomorrow,
He cried all Night in Rain,
A smiling Boy, with an unbroken incomplete heart,
She said to forget, but He decided to keep this part,
With all Happy memories, where distance doesn’t even matter,
Pieces of the heart were just left scattered,
Wishing that this had been the end of the story,
For not telling you a reason for the missing title, He is sorry,
With a bunch of changes that will break you apart,
The other side of this story is really difficult to start ….
To Be Continued….
Part 2: The Apocalypse
The Story was told,
One by him and One by Her,
About the fake tears and lies,
It’s time the reveal that chapter,
Still Seems like yesterday in his memory.
Yes, this is the other side of the story,
From the judgement day,
He did keep his part,
Everything was broken and scattered,
But He couldn’t cry out of his heart.
Keeping his promise,
He switched on the music,
He t=hought it was over, but
sometimes people are cheap.
Time flew like it always does,
But memories will stay
You may try to run from it but,
They are going to hunt anyway
What you will do?
When everything you believed turnouts to be a lie,
Identities, Stories, Feelings and time, All Fake,
He couldn’t feel anymore, nor could cry.
She lied about the name,
She lied about the place,
She lied about the feelings,
She lied about the face.
She lied about everything.
To Save herself
but Still alive,
He still couldn’t stop loving,
He couldn’t fight.
He couldn’t believe that,
people would be that bad,
Yup, A Fool only can continue,
He told her it’s okay, don’t be sad,
The Irony, Yeh, It’s unbelievable,
How can someone be such a fool,
But He only knew about good,
Nobody mentioned ‘People’ in school,
She talked again, She mocked again,
She made his day, and She Broke him again.
Actually, It’s not possible to describe,
Specifically and properly in words now,
When your feelings are vultured* so relentlessly,
How would you explain, can you tell how?
Was it a mistake,
To Love someone with all your heart?
Or Was it a mistake,
To tell lies to keep secrets and hide the real cards?
Was it a mistake,
To not be prepared for someone like her,
Or was it a mistake,
To be in love with someone like her,
Can you really tell,
What other person wants from you,
When everyone is wearing a fake mask,
And you are just being you,
Yes, We all broke,
We all get broken sometimes,
To be experienced,
To be ready for the next time,
The Words doesn’t mean anything,
Unless A Person means any of them,
Because It’s time when people just don’t think what they write or speak,
We are all just following some conventions, Actual Answers nobody ever seek.
Not everyone is ready for it,
To understand the real cards,
When you want to play games,
Think about other’s and their heart.
He really can’t explain anything,
So, Just say Goodbye, if you really mean it.
Meanwhile, It has been enough time,
He also moved on and redeemed it.

* Vultured is not a dictionary word, It’s used as an extreme version of crushed or mutilated, Like Vultures do to their preys.
