For The Last Time

You’ve been with me for seven years. We’ve held each other closer than anything else in the world. I’ve cared for you more than I’ve cared for myself. Or anyone else. I have loved you more than you can imagine. And you have given me such pleasure I can only dream about.

When we first started out, we were hesitant, unsure of how we would survive with each other. We hid our relationship from the world. Except one or two people, no one knew about us. We were careful, we tiptoed around the parents and the well-wishers. We gradually progressed into being much more than a casual fling. We became partners in life’s grand journey. I carried you through some tough times and you did the same to me.

All those days and wonderful nights where you have comforted me and given me pleasure are fresh in my memory. We’ve laughed, cried, drank, sang, danced, played and slept together. We have been each others’ best friends and the worst enemies. We have been each others’ best lovers and the worst dates. I’ve shared some of my most magical moments with you over a better part of the last decade.

And now, it’s time to say goodbye. I have been meaning to write you a love song but I can’t get myself to do it. I still have theย occasionalย urge to kiss you and hold you from time to time, but for our sake, we should part ways. We have the power to seriously debilitate each other if we continue.

I wish you all the best. Thank you for everything. ย I will never find a love truer than yours. Ever.

    Haha! Yes, the first two days of withdrawal are anything but wonderful! It gets better as days go by. ๐Ÿ™‚
    All the best! Keep me updated on your progress. We can give moral support to each other! Maybe have a smoke together in a few years, as a reward for being clean. Haha!

  2. It’s it just or did that post seem like you’re saying goodbye to the smokers association?

  3. @Nikhil – That’s fantastic yo! If you keep it up, you know what that means, dontcha? It’s time to visit Amazon ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Great macha !! ..

    I hope you don’t kiss it anytime soon .. Occasional love is fine but everyday love is bad – very bad ๐Ÿ™‚ ..

    I hope you are not getting severe withdrawal syndrome and doing fine !!

  5. Even though you two aren’t together, I hope you have separate pleasant futures. Tough times will sail through.

  6. wish you all the best!!! when I make that huge step, I’ll reblog for motivation:)
