I still remember

From nine hours on call
In a day to
Waiting for a single reply
I learned to survive alone

I still remember how it all started
I still remember that long list of promises
Which I gave you on the very first day
It's funny how I used to ignore texts at first

From crying over small fights
Between us to
Hiding our feelings over backspace
We drifted apart

Our first date
Though it didn't last up for an hour
But I still remember that proposal of yours
I do still wear that ring
From now even making a straight eye contact 
To getting up goosebumps on hearing
That you were leaving the next day

From narrating each and every incident of the day
On the call to
Summing up on a single word reply

You being such a crazy brat
Waking up at 7 in the morning 
Just to drop me to college on time
Yeah, that was memorable.

And after all the worst we have gone through
I still believe
Maybe we still stand a chance.
Just waiting the day when you would realize this too.
