Can't we remain as Friends ?

Updated on April 23, 2015

‘I don’t love you anymore.’

you said this to me

and repeated,

I failed to understand

what actually went wrong.

I thought it was a joke

but you were serious.

I listened quietly,

didn’t say a word.

Tears ran down my cheeks,

I felt helpless and lost.

I realized that the word ‘love’

didn’t mean a thing to you.

What is sad and funny

when you pretend

you haven’t seen me

- Ever.

You don’t love me anymore,

Fair enough.

But Can’t we remain as friends

and be in speaking terms ?

Please don’t hesitate,

tell me frankly.

If ‘No’ is your answer

I shall understand,

I shall go away,

far and far away,

from here,

And you won’t see me again

- Ever.

It will be difficult for me

to stay away,

this I know for sure.

But then, if my absence

gives you peace of mind

and all your happiness,

I will be out of your sight

for ever, ever and

Ever

      Sad, your poems are so touching!!!! but for some reason, if felt happy at the same time, don't take that the wrong way, it was like a bittersweet

      Oh dear kamalesh my friend, this is so sad, I hope this isn't your heart that's breaking...

      Ah I have just read in the above comment that your beautiful but sad poem is nothing to do with your personal life, I am relieved.

      Best wishes, I hope all is well with you.

      bschnabel - So nice of you to read the poem and comment. To be honest with you the poem is based on an imaginary situation and has no bearing with my personal life.I am sure you will appreciate that Great Writers(!!!) often write this way (Ha Ha Ha).

      Thank you my Friend for all your kind words.

      I am well, thank you. Trust you are well too.

      Take care. Best Wishes.

      Kamakesh,this is beautiful but very sad! Love if not reciprocated is painful and when it is not taken seriously,it hurts a lot.

      thanks for sharing. voted up!
