Just a last look

a poem by Asha Sunil

I would never forget the day
When you walked out of my life-
I now know what broke me down
Among your deliberate actions…

It was not the words you carelessly threw
So poisonous, so sharp, so hurting
I was mortally wounded but not dead…

It was not the look that strangled my soul
Though it could have drowned me
It just dampened my feelings…

It was not when you said “Good Bye”
It was not when you strode away
But it was when you never turned back
To see me one last time
I broke down to cry…
