It was the first time.
The first time I got rejected.
Unexpected, it broke me apart.
It felt like a thousand stones weighing
down my heart.
She said no.
Even though she knew
it was my favourite choclate bar.
Scared as hell I glanced behind in search of the dying screams and weeping squeals, my shadow glanced back.
Standing in the place where the alley once stood, he reminisced their first kiss. “I miss you”, he etched on a brick in the debris. It’s been 8 years. One night had changed his life. Shattered everything. But the debris remained. He threw the rock and walked away in grief. The rock fell near something that shimmered in the scorching sun. It was a promise ring.
The case was at its final verdict. He turned his sight from the judge to me. His eyes glinted just like they once did when he was wrapped up in my arms with a white sheet. But they lacked the innocence they once possessed. The stare was interrupted by the verdict-“Guilty”. Unforgettable. It was a March 24th, the same day he was born.
His arms were cold,
but his heart still warm.
The mother truly felt the beats
even though he was still born.
It took a moment to say ‘I love you’ but it took a lifetime to realise what true love was.
I stared into the night
The stars seemed nigh
And they shined brighter
Like God was showering glitter trying to lull me,
For the tears I effused profusely
