I havent written in a long long time. I realise that. But to be fair, I was writing because I was in love. I still am in love, I believe. I was giving vent to feelings unreciprocated (which you would have figured if you’ve read my poems).
But at that time, I was living in hope. But eventually, I just gave up. I lost the hope I had been clinging onto. And so I lost the motivation to write. Seeing Him 2 months later opened my mind a little, although my heart just balled up, aching everywhere.
And I realised, this is forever going to be unrequited love. And being aware of that, I now feel, I didn’t even need him, to love him.
So this is the premise on my following poem, ‘Love Letters’.
And being the desi bollywood fan that i am, let me re-emphasise that point with a quote from the movie Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
