The girl next door (#56)


Let’s be strangers again

We used to have better conversations back then.

When we knew very little about each other.

Let’s not know so much, remember so much.

And forget all those special days, each other’s favourites, our walks together, our coffee dates, the metro rides,  the calls late night, the 3am texts, 

Let’s forget all of it 

Let the silence speak for us.

Let’s not take a step forward, 

Let’s turn around and walk away, away from each other.

Let’s not be a contact in each others phone, a name on the friends list.

Let’s not recognize a familiar face, in a  crowded place.

Let’s be like a blurred photograph in each other’s past.

Let’s struggle to recall each other’s name.

Let’s not pretend everything is still the same.

Let’s be strangers again.

I am a person with the most self contradicting personality -shy till I don't know you.quiet till you are a stranger.impulsive.dreamer. I don't talk much to express myself I would rather write,draw ,paint or sketch . Mammas girl( and proud of that). there's not anything thing fancy about me.

  1. उस मोड़ से शुरू करे फिर से ये ज़िंदगी, हर शै जहाँ हसीं थी हम तुम थे अजनबी…
