Never let a relationship break because of ego. Let me know your thoughts


The words were never spoken,

The hand though stretched
yet never found the courage
to stop her from behind

The emotions had a sudden burst
but halted in between
before tears could moist his tender eyes

The smile became hollow

The mind a vacuum

The desires were wrapped and stashed
far away from his own reach

And those steps dragged away unforgivingly,
for his obnoxious ego became too big
leaving no space for him to stay

And now that she was gone
lost in some distant oblivion,
and the fact that he was left
with a broken heart to mend,
he remained perplexed and confused,
questioning every time,
why his days had become
poignantly dark and depressingly blind.

  1. Such a beautiful exposition about the most unwanted feeling in a relation. Just a thought, won’t the line should have “her” instead of “him”–> leaving no space for him to stay
    Cause the female is leaving.Correct me if I’m wrong.
