Lost story


Ours is a story written in the sands, gone with the wind and love, washed away by waves of suspicion. Whatever was left of the memories burned in altars of our minds and here we stand hanging on to fallacies. I’ve been there before, to that heartbreak shore, wetting my feet in the tides of our times and collecting seashells. It’s useless to think about changes, they’re constant.

My eyes haven’t witnessed sunrise for a long time now, it only sets. The sense of direction was lost long before I could find a way, the stranded heart follows hollow voices hoping they’re yours; it fails to realise it can only pump blood. Sometimes I wish I could just put on my old jeans and blue hoodie and walk the same old street like nothing ever happened, like my skin never knew your touch.

I wish. Do you?

        Hey Man, quick question, would you be willing to give me permission to link to your page for an award post I’m doing? Otherwise, I can simply write your name without the link if you’d prefer.

            Because some people don’t like that sort of thing. I’m being polite mate 😉

            Ya and that story, I had not told about to “this”. even though a good friend, I thought all my pain should be mine

            1. I wouldn’t insist on telling him either because honesty ruins relationships. Sometimes you gotta lie to save what you have.

              He knows, I had a heart break. I told him then. Also told him I don’t want to talk much. He was ok

            3. That’s so considerate of him. People pretend to understand but a problem still pops up because of what we confided with one day or another. Honesty gave me bad experiences.

              I’ve seen that happen with people. Not everyone understands. In a weak moment they bring back our past, just to hurt! Totally unnecessary!! And it’s very immature to do that.
