Evolution

Gyana Singh 

I loved you.
I smiled everytime your name popped on my timeline.
I retweeted all those quotes on love thinking about you.
I put up captions with you as the central idea.
I laughed thinking of all the times you looked at me and smiled.
I cried seeing the girl on your mind.
I drank the cheapest wine knowing I could never be her.
I smoked up the ashes of the pieces of my heart that you broke.
I saw you and the rush of adrenaline on your cheeks seeing her come.
I swallowed my tears and claimed to all that you looked best with her.
I laughed seeing you hug her with all your might.
I drank the cheapest wine knowing I would never be her.
I smoked up the ashes of the pieces of my heart that you broke.
I loved you.

 

 

I hated you.
I changed my destination when I saw you in my way.
I ran up to take the last seat before the old man so that I didn't have to see you.
I ignored reality and went deep into the mirth of misery.
I drank the cheapest wine leaning on the stranger's arm.
I smoked the ashes of the pieces of my heart that you broke.
I hated you.
I cried knowing love was nothing like Mr Darcy.
I laughed thinking of the times when love was limited to a slice of pizza.
I drank the cheapest wine leaning on the stranger's arm.
I smoked the ashes of the pieces of my heart that you broke.
I hated you.

 

 

I hated myself.
I screamed thinking I'll never be able to love again.
I cringed looking at my reflection in the mirror reeking of self pity.
I drank an expensive scotch daring to stand on the multistorey terrace.
I smoked the ashes of my pride that I had burnt with you entering my life.
I ate the expired packet of chips as I watched Mcdreamy die.
I drank an expensive scotch daring to stand on the multistorey terrace.
I smoked the ashes of my pride that I had burnt with you entering my life.

 

 

I loved myself.
I cried remembering my tears for you.
I smiled seeing the change in me which you brought.
I drank an expensive scotch knowing you were the never the one.
I smoked the ashes of the past life which made me sigh.
I laughed knowing you were never mine as I realised that you were just an idea.
I drank an expensive scotch knowing you were never the one.
I smoked the ashes of my past life which made me sigh.
