We'll never turn back

Had I known it was the last time I would see him...

- I'd have kissed a less harder

- I'd not have called him as soon as the translucent grey puff of smoke from the bus that took me away, disappeared into the sky.

- I'd not have spent most of the night watching him sleep.

- I'd not have let him hear my heartbeat

- I'd have told him that I loved him. Just because he didn't deserve it.



For you see, all along he knew that it was the last time he'd want to see me.

People usually regret things they did Not do, not the ones they did.

I wonder which category would this one fall in?

Someone: Rainy day and office... what a lousy combination I must say!

Anon: Rebellious.

Anon: Harder here meant with more force.

Trishna: And we move on with life, twisted n turned inside.

Alok: And my 2 words, 'Thank you!'

Abinash: The middle part, I'll take! And to the first & last- :)

Sparsh: Somewhere in between.

He should have been kissed harder so that he remembers for the rest of his life as to what he has missed.

Preetha: The same tide that never turns back.

Sherry: And yet you did! :)

hi poornima,

hindsight ambushes all the joy.
insouciant being leads to newer pleasures of living full and out...

have fun...even if it is at his expense ... keep writing..

Would she have not done any of that for sure? :)

Prayag: Well, kissing is quite nice isn't it? :)

OAC: At his expense. But the areas of intersection between his and mine- seem unfair.

Sudarshan: :) You know her too well. Yes, she'd have done all that and all over again.

Well, it is great provided we are in love (even if she is to betray us).But, kissing some1 whom we know that we are to dump the next moment will be horrible in my case. May be we differ here ;)

this one brings back memories.
and makes me doubt Him;
If He built the heart out of the same wood he used for our souls.

OAC: Oh.. its all unfair in love!

Anon: Kissing someone you know is gonna dump you is gonna be horribler I must say!

Varun: Question your faith in Him. He'll like i more than adulations.
