Tell Me…

Tell me

how many nights will it take for you to forget him?

How many nights went so

you and his memories,

sitting against the bed like old buddies

them making you cry cats and dogs

and you thinking silently, when will they leave,

like he did…

Tell me when will it be enough and strongly you’ll stand

and yell, no more,

please, no more!

how many nights will it take for you to forget him?

How many more nights

when your roommate won’t be able to sleep

because you decided to give your heart to someone,

who now snores peacefully.

Tell me when will it be enough and you will convince

your broken self that he is not going to be

the glue you need,

not the bandage to your wounds which openly bleed!

how many nights will it take for you to forget him?

How many more nights

when you switch off your phone

for eighteen times and switch it on the nineteenth one

breathing heavily as the screen lights up,

that look you have on your face while you do so

as if you are an addict and his WhatsApp status and dp

is your drug…

Tell me when will it be enough and you will

end up blocking him and if guts allow,

maybe delete his number somehow!

Haah! Your heart laughs…

she remembers them, check the brain walls

and yes it’s true…

because there they are, carved on the walls of your brain

and you don’t know what to do now!

how many nights will it take for you to forget him?

You know what, try this.

the number you still remember

dial it and hear it ring

and try not to disconnect the call seconds before he picks up

this is something you have to do now because

tell me when will you realize

and call him and ask him a question which might end all your misery…

“Hel..hello…can you tell me how many nights did it take for you to forget me?”
