Those were the lips that used to slacken just a little bit,
in preparation for the sublime ecstasy of a kiss, waiting to be planted,
and that infinitesimal wait seemed worthy of a lifetime of pain,
…and now those very lips, resemble a crater
spewing fire, venom, and sarcasm-laden words inflicting a deep, unsettling pain

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

When night meant moonlight, and days were endured patiently in anticipation of the warm night,
… and now the night sky seems like winter – colorless, cloudless and devoid of any inane charm

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

we burned in blithe love, like moths in fire
… and now we smoulder in charred love like abandoned and decrepit things burnt at the Holi bonfire

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

waiting for each other used to feel like the just-can’t-wait wait for the friday evening movie
… and now it feels like the agonizing wait of the monday morning grind

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

our love used to resemble the many forms of rain – at times torrential, at times a drizzle and mostly just sweet pouring rain
… and now it seems like the unseasonal rains, don’t want it and not looking forward to it anymore

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

Back then, a whisper in a long distance call said what a thousand words could not
… and now shortest distance is the longest route and awkward silence is the loudest noise

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

Our maxim used to be ‘steal, swindle, rob’ any moments of the day for our together-alone prime time
…and our maxim now is ‘avoid, escape, ignore’ any inkling of just-us time

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

Back in those days, love was King and courtship was Queen
… and now insanity is the king and desolation is the queen

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

We were a load of ‘you gave me a reason to live’ and ‘definitely-maybes’ then
… and now a load of ‘blame it on you’ and ‘howcomes-whatevers’ now

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

We were opposites synced up like LedZepplin-meets-EltonJohn-meets-ABBA magical moments
… and now we digressed to JayZ-meets-Beethoven-meets-RaviShankar murderous mayhem

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

Our first meeting was reminiscent of the union of jasmine fragrance and summer night breeze
… and now we seem like the odor that’s hanging in the air, after a candle wick flame is put off abruptly

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love

As someone rightly said, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it ever happened.”
So…So long, my beloved Love !!!

Bye Bye, Bye Bye, Love
