You're at peace with his soul around.
Familiarity and comfort begin to blossom at every rendezvous.
Sense of belonging sprouts albeit still quite young.
Your heart now understands the noise behind every silence.
Suddenly the blue moon comes-
the most familiar now has become a stranger.
You’re tiptoeing at every action and words.
Confused at who started drifting away first.
Only a few can be so lucky to be with their beloved throughout entirety.
No fear of betrayal or hiccups from toxicity.
But, what about the rest of the few?
What about the others who are not so lucky?
Others who will definitely
experience love, but only up to a certain point in their life.
the love this person gets has an expiry date stamped on it.
the universe has decided that this person is, indeed, allowed to love,
and be loved, but only for a fixed period of time.
Because this person has gone through few painful separation
that when they cross fate with someone, they know
that the whole shebang won’t even last that long.
It has become a pattern-
a pretty hopeless one.
So stay numb, unlucky fellas.
from the most,
