Just like every other story, ours started beautifully,
but unlike the usual happily ever after, we ended a bit tragically.
You asked for explanations, begged me for days,
but I didn’t budge, I didn’t give you any.
I was as cold-hearted, as one can be,
but know that ’til now, I’m truly sorry.
For truth be told, I’ve no reasons to give,
just that I fell out of it, how cruel really.
You gave me poems and flowers,
and a weak thank you is all I could utter.
Not even a hug, a kiss or a half-hearted
‘I love you’ that I could’ve offered.
You told me not to cry,
for stars like me don’t fall out of the sky.
Your rhymes no matter how perfect they are,
I don’t regret saying good bye.
I wanted different things,
I am now chasing different dreams.
You’ve found someone for your ring,
and we’ve accepted our perfect ending.
If we meet again in a different lifetime,
I hope we don’t make the same mistake of falling for each other.
