Contrast: 2 sides of a love story

Contrast

Hello peeps!

Today’s response to the ‘dailyprompt’ deals with the contrasting sides of a love story. As most of the love stories go, there are some promises made & accepted between a guy & his girl. While promises are supposed to last forever, there’s always that thought which doesn’t agree with this concept viz. ‘Promises are meant to be broken’. This poem of mine depicts a contrasting situation of a guy & a girl owing to certain promises which weren’t completed.

You Said

You said that we would be in touch,

You said we would be friends forever,

And that we would meet at least once in a year…

You said that you valued our relation,

And we shared a special connection..

You said that we would share our smiles & sorrows…

That you would always remember me & never let go..!

I believed in every word you said…

I guess that was that my mistake,

Because you didn’t keep your word,

You turned a deaf ear & my cries went unheard..!

But I still forgive you because I can’t be angry on you,

I still respect you & I have faith in you,

I still care for you because I love you..!

Please come back to me girl,

Show me that I was right to trust you,

Show me that you meant everything you said,

Show the world you ain’t a liar..!

Because I know you’re not…

We are not ‘just’ friends; we never were & never will be,

Because there’s something more between us,

The moment our eyes met, it struck me like a dart,

“Go get her boy!” said my heart.

The moment I realized I’ve fallen for you,

I promised myself to live my life only for you,

To love you like no one else,

To make ‘you’ my essence..!

Nothing hurts more than broken promises,

A heart once broken is almost impossible to mend..

I’m keeping my promises that I gave you girl,

I’m still your crazy lover..!

And no matter what happens this craze for you will remain forever..

A broken heart never heals immediately and even when it does, the scars remain forever etched in the memories of the heartbroken.

Do pen down your thoughts about the post. Cheers!

The Delirium

Dilemma

Hey there everyone.! I hope you all are enjoying reading my blogs.! Thanks a lot for your response & motivation.! In response to today’s ‘dailyprompt’ I’m posting one of my favourite compositions. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Cheers!

The Delirium

Sometimes you dunno what you feel exactly,

It’s a delirious state..

Your mind is neither confused nor sure..

Your heart doesn’t know what to wish for,

You ain’t sad exactly,

You’re just numb perhaps..

 

There’s this deep chain of thoughts engulfing you,

Making you feel afraid at times,

And at times joyous,

The series of thoughts wherein you create your own world,

Wherein things are not really sane or very practical,

Yet everything’s perfect.!

You ain’t sad exactly,

You’re just lost perhaps..

 

Just then there’s this flash of magic,

Or a sweet gesture,

Or a great occasion,

Or a special person,

Who knocks those thoughts out cold,

A gloomy face suddenly smiles wide,

A wandering soul finds its path,

The world seems colorful again,

You feel alive once again..!

You ain’t on top of the world exactly,

You’re just smiling perhaps..

deilrium-quote

Suddenly a thought, “Why him? How did he manage to do that?”

Out of nowhere an ordinary guy becomes special,

Out of nowhere you find yourself happy..

Anything he does amazes you,

Even the silliest of jokes,

The smallest of helps &

The simplest of smiles..

He walks into your life as easily as a thought,

One fine day he manages to sneak into each of your thoughts..

You dunno what to say,

Or how to smile or laugh or blush..

You’re not in love exactly,

You’re just about to fall perhaps..!

A Journey – Denouement

Hey there everyone! I hope you have enjoyed this series both as individual poems and as a story. There are numerous stories where a guy meets a girl & something starts off without the end/consequence in sight, which is quite thrilling at times! The ending of the last blog was “Who knows whether their journey is nearing its end; where the bubble finally breaks for the guy or whether it has just started to unravel its beauty.”

Today, we reach the denouement of the series i.e. the conclusion. So here it is.

Me, Her & Destiny

I lost the one I could be the most frank with,

The one my demons could dance with..

Maybe I was too stupid for us to be ‘we’,

Or maybe I lost her to destiny…

It was always fun with her, like wild old spree,

We’d blabber utter nonsense & laugh so easily..

She shot me arrows as straight as they could be,

I dodged one or two, but no one is perfect you see..

She’d strike me as awesome as anything I’d ever seen,

Her intriguing mind was the eeriest place I’d ever been..

It was like a magic trick, the way she’d talk to me,

Some random girl suddenly became a habit when she started to amaze me..

Every day I managed to be caught in her best trick – riddling,

As if she had it planned, to surprise me & keep me guessing..!

Times flew past when we’d chat,

She’d blush then in 2 seconds flat..!

Exciting it was, a rush of adrenaline,

To see her go pink & her eyes saying, “You win!”

Whatever I’d say the curve would set in,

Add some more sweetness, viola! The cheeks went pink..!

Increasingly restless I was,

Absolutely stubborn she’d been,

Wanting to get closer,

But reluctant she seemed..

Destiny they say, is a funny thing,

You love it when it’s on your side & things are happening,

But when it changes sides & the love turns into flare,

It becomes your worst nightmare..

I shouldn’t have been naïve,

Shouldn’t have been so vulnerable,

I should have seen it coming,

Should have just let her be my best ever feeling..!

She talked to me & it clicked, it was serendipity,

I hurt her & ruined all of it, it was tragedy,

I guess I was too stupid for us to be ‘we’,

Or indeed, I lost her to destiny..!!

– Chinmay Bapat

That’s how the saga reached its conclusion. Destiny played its part; the bubble finally broke & everything fell apart almost as if it was a dream! Of course there could have been different paths of this journey but this is how it went this time.

As always, I’d love to know your thoughts. Like & share if you have enjoyed this as it keeps me inspired.

Thank you for reading! Will be back soon with some more blogs!

Cheers!

A Journey – Part 4

It’s Been A Year

It’s been a year and our lives have chosen their tracks,

Even though a few miles apart we seemingly have each other’s backs..

It was great how we began and what we experienced,

Something unique, a lil too crazy at times,

But when I look back, it does make me smile..

It was fascinating the way we began all of a sudden,

You liked my poems & our chats became instantly fun!

Some moments took our breaths away,

Some moments made us ponder & think before choosing our ways..

Some chats made our days,

Some meetings made us crave for those times to just stay..

You had me at “Hi”,

Didn’t want to hear you say “Goodbye”,

For when we’d chat the world seemed happy,

You brought back the guy truly made of insanity..

It’s been a year we know each other,

A girl I met is no longer a stranger..

Nothing is forever they say and that’s what I’ve learned once again,

But this hurricane was certainly better than just a drizzling rain…

– Chinmay Bapat

So that is how it’s been after a year. Who knows whether their journey is nearing its end; where the bubble finally breaks for the guy or whether it has just started to unravel its beauty. Stay tuned, subscribe and bookmark this site to know what happens next.

A Journey – Part 3

Hello friends!

So in this journey of love so far, a guy has fallen head over heels for a girl he met. They have shared some beautiful memories & now have built a special bond. In this poem you will realise that not only the guy but also the girl has kind of fallen for him. Since she hasn’t said it out clearly, the guy (and so do we) assume that she likes him too. Their journey has come 3 months from day 1. So the boy has decided to write something special to mark this occasion.

Read on and let me know about your thoughts at the end.

3 Months

3 months is too short they say..

But in that time..

A blush has gone from baby pink to strawberry red..

A blush quite rare is now an everyday affair..

A random smirk has become a beautiful smile..

Yet 3 months have changed the reason behind it..

A smile with more of happiness from within..

A smile which just doesn’t stop once it sets in..

A random chat has turned to everyday conversations..

A random girl now a great friend of a random guy,

Genuine thoughts & opinions have replaced those formal talks,

Awkwardness has gone out of the window,

Sparks of madness, notoriety & love have flown in..

A quiet girl now talks on for hours,

Once a carefree guy; now notices every detail about her & her words..

Peculiar taunts & special gestures are now part of this special bond,

The girl & the guy rhyme together to make a beautiful song..!

A random guy now makes a that girl blush like nobody else..

A random acquaintance is now a beginning of something,

Something which has begun to take a beautiful shape,

Something which is gonna be worthwhile,

Something which will be remembered..

Always..!

3 months have seemingly connected 2 sweet people forever..

And 3 months is too short they say..

I don’t know why..

She Said…

S/he Said

Hello peeps.! This poem sheds light on a very desperate & lonely time in a guy’s life where just cannot get over his heartbreak/love. No matter what he has done, she has not come to him & he has been longing for her love for quite some time now. Tell me how did you feel immediately after reading the last line.

A Journey -Part 2

Hello readers,

As you might have gone through the 1st part of this ‘journey’ wherein a guy almost falls in love with a girl at first sight, I assume it must have brought back memories of your first love or first crush. Such stories are rare these days but surely aren’t extinct. Love truly can surprise everyone. So moving on further, in this poem we see how their relation has developed so far. Read on and enjoy.!

A Week

It’s just been a week & we don’t talk,

Just a week has changed a lot…

A week has overpowered a bond,

Those memorable days seem far & beyond…

Just a week has created a rift,

A bond now shadowed by fog & mist…

It’s been a while since we’ve seen each other’s laughter,

A short while has changed “together” to “to get her”…

It’s been days since we’ve made each other smile…

But not even a single day where we’ve not made each other cry…

It’s been hardly a minute since I’ve missed you,

Staring at your photos all the time, is all I do…

Those video clips, they instantly bring out a flood of tears,

Looking at you, I feel life’s worth & get rid of all my fears…

It’s been a while since I’ve felt your touch,

A touch which overpowered my senses & enchanted my heart,

A touch made of sheer care & affection,

At times composed of simple notoriety & that devilish hint,

Nevertheless a touch which took my breath away…

It’s been a week & it seems you’ve forgotten us,

It’s really tough girl, forgetting you is extremely arduous…

Come back & prove that a mere week can’t overshadow an infinite bond,

A week can’t nullify the love we found,

A week can’t separate you from me,

A week can’t change what was promised to be…

It’s been a week girl, I ain’t myself, and I’m fascinated by none,

It’s been a week where time hasn’t frozen..!

It’s been a week I haven’t felt my heart beat,

Because it’s been a week since our last meet…!

It’s been a week… An infinitely ephemeral week….

– Chinmay Bapat

PS: A week doesn’t imply 7 days after he saw her. It just shows the situation at a point in time where they haven’t conversed for a week.

As always, do let me know your thoughts on this and do share the article and my page on social media if you like what I write.
