Once the uncertainty of the short days,
Those long naps,
The darkroom and the silent phone returned,
With Dull eyes and a sinking heart.
I got to know myself newly,
And I realised
They couldn’t control me anymore,
They tried to control how others see me.
Sometimes I just keep thinking,
How and why did they come into my life,
Made a bond with me,
And later invited me
To swim in their poisoned waters.
I never thought of giving up on them,
But I had to let them go,
Not because I didn’t care
It was just because they didn’t care.
The next morning, I awakened differently.
I accepted that life goes on.
I realized it was the best gift,
Anybody could have handed me over.
I closed this chapter of being hurt,
Because I deserve happiness.
I’m stronger than I ever was,
Holding on doesn’t make me strong,
But let it go, yes.
It’s no big deal not being a superwoman all the time.
