After So Many Years,
You felt you still hate that one person who left you stranded. Who knocked you out of their plans so they could fit their ‘picture perfect’ with other plans. Your heart ached when you heard their footsteps going away.
You never wanted to face them. You felt they too must feel the betrayal you once felt. The neglect, the loneliness, the emotions that choked you, that you silently gulped.
But the answer is NO. You never were wishing them any bad. You only were overwhelmed with the feelings they aroused only to extinguish them with their bare hearts. You were only seeking your sweet days back. You were yearning to live them again. It was all a fusion of wanting them back and walking together in life as you perceived once to be perfect with them as a fancy dream came true.
How could you wish bad for a person you once loved with all you heart?
Days passed, bitterness turned sweet.
And you laughed at the impossible,
‘HOW COULD I EVER UNLOVE THEM?
Published by DrAsmaPoetry
Dr. Asma Mohammadi is an Indian doctor, writer, and poet living in California. Ever since childhood, her mounting interest in language was evident as she penned articles for school journals. Her profound fondness for poetry evolved growing up, and she began exploring her writing skills.
Her poetry has an essence of feminism, equality, mental illnesses, psychology, stress-related disorders, and many more such topics.
A compilation of rapture, despair, longing, self-love, triumph, and loss, her debut book ‘Soar Beyond Skies’ is a collection of poems chronicling the challenges of contemporary life such as inequality, social criticism, peer pressure, anxiety, depression, sexism, displacement, racism, objectification, breaking stereotypes and many more.
Smashing the shell of confinement and taking on the cliched perspectives, her book takes you on a journey that traverses the stagnant plains, the eye-catchy mountains, the winding roads, and the pit stops in life.
It is split into seven sections namely sweet (joy), bitter (fear), sour (grief), salty (hope), insipid (apathy), spicy (ecstasy), and pungent (criticism). With flavors of practicality as well as fantasy, it engraves love on the minds reflecting on the vital aspects of life.
She delves into solitude life to offer elements of reality and bitter truth. Her life revolves around various components of living fearlessly, evading judgments, and voicing opinions when needed.
Asma is an active poet and writer on her Instagram page dr.asmapoetry where she started unboxing her emotions three years ago for the world to read, feel, and relate to. She believes in the medicinal power of words, and her verses are meant to paint hearts with compassion, purity, and love. She enjoys playing tennis, designing greeting cards, traveling, and creative writing in her leisure hours.
Two broken people fix each other
Like mirrored halves of hope put together
