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

hideous,

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

gorgeous

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

Angel.

I am happy for her.

At least, I believe so.
