Kulsum Afia is my pen name. I am currently doing my MD residency. I write only on topics that inspire me. Hope you enjoy my work !

You made me feel special,

You made me realize love can be a drug,

And an addiction.

On a gloomy morning, you were my sunshine,

On a dark evening, you were my moonlight,

On a rainy day, you were my umbrella,

You were the prince charming to my Cinderella.

You made me believe I was the one,

You told you would for me reach the stars and the sun,

I too believed you were the one,

The love story I had waited for, had finally begun.

And then you left.

You made me almost lose faith,

On love, on people and on character.

All I could feel then was hate,

My whole world had come crashing down and nothing else did matter.

It was then that I realized who was real and who fake,

Who in my sorrow and fear would partake.

You made me a survivor,

You made me realize I am worth so much more,

Than an object of your desire.

You taught me I could cry myself to sleep,

Have every waking moment being clouded with your memories,

And still fight my demons,

Wake up the next morning and achieve what i set out to achieve.

When my children face heartbreak,

You are the story I will tell,

Do not settle for someone who can their soul sell,

For not every man in a shining armor is a knight.

You are the story I will tell,

For one day, everything will be quite alright.

      The Honeymoon Phase, and then, the Devaluation Phase is very relative to me, as well, in my past relationship. You have written this out beautifully! I am inspired by it.
