“Even if you don’t want me back” – Nayana Nair

From the corner of my eye
I see you smile,
I see it fade.
I see you fade.

From the corner of my eye
falls a tear,
as I run into my mistakes,
run into my cruel words,
as I try to find you,
in this place where you once lead me by my hand.

In every space, in every memory,
in every version of our past
where you promised
you would always stay even if we part.
You look a bit more tired.
I look a bit more impatient.
This is not the reality I lived.
This is not the love I had.

Tell me,
even if it changes nothing,
tell me
that I once had your heart,
that there are moments you want to return to
even when you don’t want me back.


    1. True. Sometimes what we remember and what we have lived are not the same. Sometimes this difference shields our heart, sometimes it causes us only pain.
      Really glad that you like my poem πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much dear πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you so much πŸ™‚
      It makes me happy to hear that. To know that my words could move you. It is a capability that I envy other writers for – to be able to convey sincerity of feelings and to be able to reach someone else.
      So your words have words made my day πŸ™‚ Thank you so much.
      Thanks for the reblog as well. πŸ˜€
      Have an awesome day ahead.🌹
