Holding on

I held onto you for really long

Putting up with everything I never was

Just to keep all of this going

In the process hated all that I was becoming

Something inside kept revolting

And then after a time it stopped speaking.

I wanted to wait till you would become

All that I wished for me.

I was waiting for the unexpected to happen.

I waited for you

In the waiting became just like you.

Holding on to you

Knowing you were never right for me

Now I have lost me

In the wait lost my own identity

In the hope to find something that was never to be .

  2. Beautiful..
    One of the best from your pen .
    The truth ..what happens when one just clings on knowing that the person or thing is not what they want….expecting to change them..in the process you change and lose yourself .
    Stay blessed Gayatri..
