Loneliness pricks when it is unwanted, but soothing when it is welcomed. Tonight, I wanted to be alone, still I did not enjoy it. To tell you the truth, I never enjoyed loneliness as such. I so wished to have someone I could talk endlessly for hours, without ever feeling the urge to stop. Everyone in the house is asleep, or so I hope. But I am sitting in front of my screen with no concrete purpose. I opened a word page and drew my fingers on the keyboard. For one second, I made up my mind on what to write. Strange but true: I stayed there for about fifteen minutes, not knowing what to type. I wanted to close everything and go to sleep, but damn sleep never came at the right time! So, I thought of writing something, something about me and my thoughts would be very easy to translate on screen rather than invented fictions. But still, this is not a confession. It is just a fictitious reality. Here I start:

There was once a girl,

Pretty, with tinkling eyes,

That never blinked with joy,

Gracious smile,

That never smiled happiness.

Confused, fearful, silent,

Fallen were her gaze always,

She feared the world,

The society, her parents,

Her values, her virtues,

Herself.

Burdened by responsibilities,

Crushed by her unfulfilled dreams,

Alone, she treads her way.

Until the day she met ‘him’.

Magic, Bliss it seemed to be

Fairy Tale, Unreal for me.

But such was their love story:

Untainted, Pure and Sacred.

 

She never told him,

He never told her,

Until he realized that life was meaningless without her.

Until it dawned on her that he was her lost piece of puzzle.

But none had the courage to make the first step.

Because none wanted their friendship to be sallied.

They met everyday, they talked for hours,

They lunched together, shared food, gifts and cards.

But none could tell what they felt for each other.

He knew her as much as she knew him

Years went by, their friendship sealed forever

Years went by, their love remained veiled.

But deep inside, she knew that

Nothing could make her as happy as she is now

In him she has found the world

Whether they be together or not,

Whether or not, she could ever voice her heart out,

She knew that he will always be here for her,

Always…

A faint smile on her face, a hidden tear in her eye,

She steps on and on,

She knows he can never be hers,

Her life, her unfulfilled desire,

Her smile, her tear,

Her companions forever.

There was once a girl,

Pretty, with tinkling eyes,

That never blinked with joy,  

Gracious smile,

That never smiled happiness.

The question here is the fear of losing a best friend, a treasure by speaking your heart out! Thank you for reading and appreciating...Hmmm...what happened to her? She's living, happily, alongside her best friend...together! Meeting everyday, having lovely times with each other...and she's happy!It seems lame i guess, but that's the way it is...She is happy, this is what matters...He is happy, this is what matters too...The rest...let's leave it on Fate! :)

You remind me about something in my past, same backgrond, excellent someone, love comes from friendship and then we named our friendship to be our love but in the end we lost that love, and after that when love lost there is no friendship remain too :) sad, as sad as when i read this poem, cause now, i really miss that nice friendship :)

Wow! I mean, i thought that i was the only one who faced such a turmoil! Maybe you will understand the girl in the poem better then: why she chose to 'kill' her love silently in order to gain her 'friendship' for life...:)

That was such a sweet piece! I can absolutely relate to that (well, in the past)! It's written really beautifully! I love it!
There is something sad, but also something very peaceful about it.
