It was here that I met her two years ago, the same season, the same place, the same bench.

There was nothing unusual about her or about us but something peculiar that I can’t explain- it just made me talk to her.

We then met every day, discussing everything under the sky- music, movies, literature, travel, books, and nature. We never knew anything about each other except our names and opinions. We preferred to keep it that way. She was like a breath of fresh air- the most amazing thing to have happened to me!

Until one day, she never came back. I knew not where to find her, I knew not who to ask. All I had was her name and her memory.

It was here, that I met her two years ago, the same season, the same place, the same bench.

And I sit here, even today, on the same bench-waiting for her to come back.


I have a tendency to write something that is either romantic or utterly disappointing and depressing. Apologies for the same πŸ™‚


About Maya

Bored of the tedium and tired of the rut, I look for shelter in my imaginary hut; Behind these veils of propriety and decorum, I desperately seek a liberating forum; In my words and humor you'll find fire But beware and warned, It's all just Maya! Come, see my world through my window..

  5. Great job! Yes, you accomplished writing a romantic and utterly disappointing, and depressing story of life! We all wish for happiness and great futures, but in reality, it doesn’t happen that way…we manage to have a mix of everything in our lives. Sometimes our life’s journey takes us where we don’t want to go.
