14 2-line Love Stories That Will Make You Happy And Sad At The Same Time

Some love stories have that effect on people. One keeps reading it in persistent expectation for something to happen and then the author cruelly, with a startling turn of events, changes the entire plot! I, myself, have been a sucker for such stories and have had a love-hate relationship with such writers! But today, the tables seem to have turned! I am the one who has to conjure up tales that startle and amaze and leave the reader with a bittersweet feeling. Will I be able to that? That’s a story in itself. And a long one too! But why would one bore oneself with a stretched account even though it may have a Sidney Sheldon-ish ending?! Time’s too precious today and options are plenty! Here you can read 14 love stories in just over 2-minutes and still feel that a part of you was stirred, found and lost, or the other way round! That’s the attempt! Hope you enjoy them.

P.S.: Micro-fiction is great but please don’t swap volumes of great works for these, the way you swapped paper for Kindle! Try and keep a healthy balance!

Okay, here we go!

It was only a matter of a year;

A year for the cancer to eat her up too.

Hoping it would go well this time

The 3-letter word finally filled the room.

“Cut,” shouted the content director!

At sundown

While rest of the world switched the lights on

They switched it off.

Their bodies had discovered fire!

Tonight when the streets were dark and forlorn,

Her lone star in the sky kept his promise.

I caught him for the first time.

When she thought of returning the favor

His grave was already waiting for her with fallen blooms.

Alas! He was a United fan!

But I judged him too.

So the 2 decided to meet the man himself,

And jumped off a cliff.

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
