Eternal Love

Advertisements

I met you when the music of my life was out of tune. It was unexpected. You save me and give my heart a new melody. We have different rhythm but our heart beats for the same reason — love. I was the happiest person alive. Thanks to you.


Days passed. Things have changed. Holding on was easy; exerting extra effort to keep the love burning was difficult. And so, I let go of the love I found because of fear. I feel that this is the right time to do it. I feel that if I don’t do it now, I will not be able to do it – ever. I just don’t want to come to a point where letting go means imminent death … of my body, of my heart, of my soul, of my whole being. It’s not that I am afraid of dying. Truth be told, I am more afraid to live my life and look at death as my only choice to escape this misery. The misery of having you but losing the intensity of love we have. To see love slowly dying every day.


So, I let go while I still can. I let go while my heart can still bear the pain. I let go to preserve whatever memory we had, happy or sad, good or bad. I let go because I still love you. I let go so that I can love you the day after today, the day after tomorrow, and the day after forever.

  1. Beautiful words.

    Hi, I’m Lokesh Sastya. I have started blogging since December 2020. Just 4-5 months. In between, I learned so many things, built a community of amazing people.

    Please introduce yourself.

  2. This piece was beautifully-haunting, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Sometimes it’s better to let go early on before the scars cut too deep, before a lover’s claws sink too deeply into your soul. I rarely see this take on letting go, thank you for sharing.
