A sequel to my previous poem, titled ’Two Years Were Not Enough’.

He probably won’t be writing back


I gave him my email…

a charred shred of hope

made me do it.


It was a moment

of impulse

like my intense infatuation

for him


I’d go

the moon and back

just for him,

all for him,

only for him.


His eyes…

dear lord, I don’t even know

the words

to narrate their ethereal beauty.


His face,

by heaven, is a grace

to set eyes on.

The way it is sculpted

to suit his fine nature

is beyond my grasp.


Near, far

not a single angle

betrays his beauty

or diminishes his elegance.


But, he won’t be writing back.


I know for a fact.

Be it his fault or mine,

he will not write back.


My eyes are

nothing like his.

They’re dark

and monotonus


My face is


only suited for hiding,

not looking.

Plainer than a rainy day.


He’ll write to that girl

he once mentioned

but not me.


She must be


for him to

go out of

his way and

bring her up,

like a fleeting topic.


She must have

eyes like diamonds

and the face of an


I am happy for her.

At least, I believe so.
