I loved you for years
I failed to notice the initial signs of when we started falling apart
Initially when I felt a bad taste I told myself,
“But this is your favourite!
You have been in love almost all your life!”
So I thought maybe it was just the day or the mood.
But then it seemed to prolong.
Time after time , interaction after interaction, I started feeling the same.
I tried ignoring the feeling.
I tried avoiding it.
The more I avoided facing it, the more it stared in my face.
I tried to make peace.
I tried to like you again.
I told myself several times
“This is your love”
So I tried again
Until one day when I couldn’t anymore!
I kept thinking there was something wrong with you all along.
So I tried changing you-
Different aspects of you
But no matter what I tried; I couldn’t get myself to like you.
I thought you changed so much that i couldn’t love you anymore.
Then I realised one day, you were just the same
I liked you for the exact same reasons that I didn’t right now.
I had changed !
And I was trying to change you to suit the tastes of a new me.
But you are just how you were meant to be.
The same green veggie!
I m sorry Bhindi!
It’s just that I couldn’t see! 😁
