Memories is all that is left …..

An entire year passed and I think I was the only one who truly knew you… Or maybe I never knew you at all…

She looked back to the first day their eyes met. It was the perfect fairy-tale moment. It had felt as though time had stopped around them.

Days past; those looks increased. And it wasn’t long before they became friends. It was as if they were meant to be, their chemistry, their proximity. Nothing could separate them. With each passing minute, their bond grew stronger. They never let anyone else come in between them. She knew she had found her companion, her partner in crime. He knew she would be the only one to know him in and out. He could see no other when she was around and couldn’t stop thinking of her when she wasn’t. There was nothing on this earth that they wouldn’t talk about, from dreams to fantasies; from ex’s to crushes; they knew the A-Z’s of each other’s lives. Their chemistry was visible to all. People around would envy them, the bond they shared. But they cared less of what people thought of them. Their world was complete. Their friendship was strong to overcome everything else. She never confessed her feelings for him because she didn’t know how he would react; she couldn’t lose her partner. He hadn’t realized he had fallen in love with her.

And suddenly everything changed…………

He left her alone without saying a word. She broke, each passing second pierced her heart as those memories flooded her mind. She did not ask him for an explanation. He never bothered to give one. She felt her soul leaving her body. Smiling became a routine to hide the pain, those scars he had left her with. But he was never the same too. It bothered him not talking to her. He couldn’t get his eyes off her when they would be in the same room. She avoided those eyes. She would catch him staring at her and turn away. People then asked what had happened; said that they were meant to be.

Life had changed at both ends. To the world, they seemed to have moved on; but only they knew the reality. She wanted to tell him what she felt for him. He knew she was crying; he yearned to hold her. But an invisible wall separated them forever.

Those eyes, which were once the most beautiful dreams, now only held pain and nightmares.’

They cared, but never showed.


Who Is Truly Your First Love?

Who Is Truly Your First Love?

“Mom, when would my Prince Charming come into my life?”, was the question I asked whenever my mother would fill my ears with those little innocent fairy tales that would talk about a beautiful princess and a handsome prince on how they met each other, how they fell in love and how they lived happily forever.

Soothing were those stories to the little ears during the childhood days, but only when adolescence hit me, did I get a wakeup call regarding the same fairy tales.

As time went by, I came to know the reality.

Yes, stories do exist, but not for the sake of a lifetime, but for the sake of the time partners can tolerate each other.

But then, for once we all dream to have that fairy tale love story where we fall in love at the first sight and that would last forever. But it may sometimes sound hypothetical or unrealistic to preserve that first love of your life forever.

Ever thought how much pain and efforts it takes for your first love to stay forever?

Yes, holding on to your first love is like growing a little sapling with a lot of selfless love and care with no expectations and waiting to see it to grow into a tree.

Recently, I came across an article on Shahrukh and Gauri. Did you ever think what’s the reason behind the beautiful couple still being together? It is said Gauri fell for Shah Rukh’s wit, confidence and style, and the two started going out. But, things were not as hunky-dory for these two young lovebirds. Shah Rukh, by nature, was very possessive about Gauri since, he did not like her to keep her hair open, let alone talking to other boys. It was then that Gauri realised that she needed a break from this relationship. A day after she celebrated her birthday at Shah Rukh’s place, she left for Mumbai with her friends without telling him. It was at this moment Shah Rukh realised his love for Gauri. Shah Rukh, who was very close to his mother, told her what had happened. She not only told him to go after his love, but also gave him 10,000 rupees to help him out. Shah Rukh recalls that he and his friends searched the entire city, but had no luck in finding Gauri. It was only after a very frantic search he found her at a beach. They both laid eyes on each other and broke down crying while in each other’s arms. That moment they realised that both could not live without each other and decided to get married.

Sometimes, it is not so difficult to hold on to your first love, but then it takes a lot of strength to hold on to it.

But then, the point is who do you think is your first love? To be genuine, your first love is not always the first person you kiss or the first person you date. Your first love would be that person whom you would always compare everyone else to. The person that you will never truly get over, no matter what.

First love is not just a random numerical position, but it is the person to whom you get attached amidst the turmoil in your life. Your first love may be the one whom you come across after a lot of turmoil in your life. Your first love may be the one whom you come across after learning a lot of lessons in life but still, the feeling would happen as if you have fallen in love for the first time ever.

Love is not about putting a timeline. It would just happen when it has to. It is mesmerising and eternal.

And it is high time for you to fall in love again for it to last forever !!
