    I came there, as usual late.
    You weren't seeing me at all!
    I only wished you to have stayed,
    Didn't force you, I never shall!

    Calling you, I smiled and then asked,
    What you wished to have at that time.
    "Coffee!" you said curtly and asked
    What I would have. I said, "Sweet Lime!".

    That's how it's been always for us.
    Neither looks, nor the interests,
    Choice of words, social status,
    All differences put to rest,

    When we found each in the other.
    It didn't happen in a day.
    Many bright and gloomy weather
    Saw us getting close and we stayed

    Together for what seems to be
    Just a few days. In fact its not!
    Like the ebb and swell of the sea,
    Our life was. But its a start.

    In fact the only one I had.
    Things happened. We lost our cool.
    Blamed each other but then we had
    Moved on like children in a school.

    Then came that terrible day when
    We both had crossed our limit.
    Our bonding had seemed to thin
    From then and you chose to omit

    My calls too, having moved away
    Far from me without any note.
    Knowing you were safer, I stayed
    Where I was, like a stupid goat.

    All things good and bad are flashing
    Before me as I sip my juice.
    No words yet. You are not seeing
    My eyes. Perhaps it hurts you close.

    Swallowing my ego, I say
    "Sorry!", you aren't just swayed.
    "One last time!", I shout. You won't stay.
    I sit down, not knowing my way.

    Dear @rgsrinivasan

    Ten stanzas enough to describe a besotted love that transport minds to situations of
    Unrequited love or one-sided love .
    The pent up emotions of a male lover
    brought up succinctly that gets eyes welled up.
    Many poems, novels and movies cross the mind with situations and emotions as entwined in your above ballad.

    Thanks and Regards.
    God Bless.
