I Want To Be With You

At the core of my heart,
I wish we were no longer apart,
And I gaze out of the window,
To lookup at the moon smiles,
My mind longs for you every night and then,
Fall on despair when you fade out of my sight,
The rhythms of your silence are endless,
That muffled me with the tune,
Is this a game you play with compassion?
Till I see you next in actual,
The more I sense you everywhere,
I feel lost without being able to tell,
Though it hurts to believe you are not near,
Always I want to be there where you are!

Love Once More

Her mobile’s ringtone interrupts her thoughts. Unwillingly she took her mobile and looked the number flashing in the screen. The number was so familiar to her. Immediately she attended the call and remained silent.
The hello from the opposite side echoed in her mind. She was so nervous to say a hello even. Because after a year she is hearing the same voice she used to hear everyday is now once again back in her life.
He asked her why is she so silent?
She replied him a hello and tried to be normal. He said her that he’d like to introduce the girl he loves. She controlled her heart cries and said yes to him. He asked her to come online at once and hangs the call.
She don’t wish to see him with other girl even its online. She opened her id and saw a new notification she received. She clicked it to view it. It informed that she was tagged to a post in his timeline. She is clueless. She clicked it to go to the post in which she is tagged.
“My long wait has came to an end. And baby only you can make me fall in love again and again. My heart is connected with you. My love & hope brought you back in my life.
Love You Once More”
She is speechless and now this time it’s because of love & happiness in her heart.

P.S: This story is continuation of “No Love No Worries
