Forever After

Believe me

When I tell this to you

Because I don’t exaggerate

My feelings.

Listen to me

Because I only choose

To tell you the truth.

We could’ve talked if we’d stayed


But we’re at least a thousand miles

Away and that’s the only thing that

Held me and kept me from

Seeing you.

We could’ve known each other in

A better way if we’d met

At those cafés

Even though I don’t savour


I’m not a person who loves to talk

At all times and I know that

I’d lose my temper when something

Unusual strikes me.

But I’d never turned you down

When you needed me to talk

And be serious for a while.

I’d never put someone else

In your place or considered

Someone else to be better than you

Or look at their way when you

Looked at mine.

You’re sacred and so was my love

Towards you

For you were the kind of person

I always dreamt about

Meeting in my life.

I feel guilty

For what I did to you

And for making your life

Much more miserable.

Also, I’m sorry

For intruding

I just didn’t know that

I wasn’t meant to be there.

I just like being myself and

Being serious about something

Isn’t in my blood.

I’m not perfect and

Nobody is and I think that

Idealising someone isn’t a

Great idea.

It’s better to tell someone that

They’re expected to do something

As they’ll never know what’s

Expected of them in the first place.

I’m always there to talk

If you find this to be relevant

And I’ll tell you whether this has to do

Something with your life.

I just realised that I’m trying

To prove something and

That’s evident here.

It’s not about who is older

Than the other

It’s just that we all learn


For now

I’d only like to tell you this

That you didn’t

Waste my time and

I wish I could see you and

Cheer you up for there’s

A whole life ahead of you.

You can never obstruct a river from

Reaching the sea for it can always

Find a way to flow

Even if you build a dam across it.

Whenever you think of me,

Just remember that we were just

Friends at the beginning

And it shouldn’t have

Turned that way in the end.

Whatever you’ve felt is really

Painful and I respect it

Because nobody would’ve

Dealt with it in the way you did.

You’re such a gem and you

Have your own way of dealing with

Your obstacles.

That’s what I admire about you.

It seems like my life is at a


But whenever I think about

Everything that happened back then,

I’d say that

It was just love.

Love, like pure water.


Forever after.

    1. Thank you!
      I don’t long for it to come back. For me, there’s nothing that’s greater than happiness and acceptance. I just want to live up and see what’s coming up next until the end. Love and all that stuff will always be there.

  1. It was wonderful… The feelings hit hard….. Good that you’ve moved on…. And those lines that we never know what’s expected of us, we take things lightly… It made me realize something……. Thnx for posting it… Keep up the good work 🙂

    1. Sometimes, it’s hard to live up to the expectations and finally, we end up moving apart from each other. Well, the scenario isn’t the same as we think. Also, I’m glad that you went through the lines in detail. We always realise and learn new things every day. That’s really good.
      Thank you so much for talking about it, Tisha!

  2. It’s so moving…

    Liked these lines a lot- ‘It’s better to tell someone that
    They’re expected to do something
    As they’ll never know what’s
    Expected of them in the first place.

    Really, over expectation is not good. It’s better to express what you need and share your thoughts…

  3. The lines,
    ‘Whenever you think of me,
    Just remember that we were just
    Friends at the beginning
    And it shouldn’t have
    Turned that way in the end.’ steal the show!

    Life never turns out to be the way we think it ought to have been!

  4. Love, like pure water…Love, forever after. This is beautiful Pavan. Whenever I read your writings, I always felt like, I have sailed the sea. Because your writing style is brilliantly complete in itself.

  5. This touched me till the very core. This was so beautiful and so honest. The feelings were poured straight from heart and reached straight to heart. ❤️❤️❤️

    Apart from the poem, may I ask if you are a taurus? The things you said in the poem above persuade me to think so. 😋

    1. Thank you so much for going through the post, Jaya! I’m glad that you liked it and also, for sharing your views on it.
      No, I’m not a Taurus. I’m a boy! Okay, poor joke.
      I’m a Gemini, if you follow the Hindu calendar and a Cancer, if you follow the Christian calendar!
