The Girl From The Garden

2 mins 349 2 mins 349

I lost you somewhere between her fingers.

I left you on the altar for someone else to hold your hand.

I told you I would come back, but I cried as she took every little detail of yours.

I wanted you to wait but your pretty eyes met someone else’s as soon as I left.


I didn't intend to lose you.

I didn't leave you at the altar for someone else.

I would have come back if you have waited in this garden just a little longer.

I could have stared your pretty eyes for hours but they were too desperate to lock with someone.


So, I watched you everywhere as you went with her, forgetting if I ever existed in your world.

I saw her called you names that I thought only I could tell you.

I saw you making efforts.

I saw you leaning in to kiss her.

I saw you holding her as she is everything you had,

And all these reminded me of how I treated you.


Hear this out,

I didn't lose you, I was just finding my best self to give it to you.

I didn't leave you, I went to get the piece of paper that had my vows on it.

I didn’t disappear in this garden leaving you behind. I went to pluck some flowers for you. 


And I am still waiting here, among these greens, looking at your life’s scenes.

I see you with her now and then, sitting on the spots where we sat, while you kissed my soul.

I AM STILL HERE WAITING FOR HER TO LEAVE,

TO FIND HERSELF WHILE YOU THINK SHE LOST YOU.

Maybe that day I will teach you what you never knew.
