You Can Choose To Leave, But You Can’t Take Away The LOVE

You left. The curtains in the living room are not crinkled where you last touched them nor does the carpet speak of your Sunday vacuum marathon. The flowers in the bedside vase wear sadness and the air around isn’t revelling in your fragrance. Your laughter’s echoes have long deserted the living room and the bedroom seems to be craving your touch as much as me. You chose to leave because after a LONG time of battling demons, taking turns at the helm- you lost your drive to fight. You chose to leave because after a lifetime of steering our relation-SHIP through the storm together, the ocean gave you a sickness you couldn’t shake. You chose to leave because after days and nights of standing tall against boulders, a pebble brought you apart.

I understand. And I won’t complain. Nor will I stop you or attempt to bring you back- as somewhere deep within – I know that the decision had already been made long before the doorknob actually turned.

But you should know that it is only your presence you can snatch. You can’t take away your memories. You can’t take away the LOVE we shared. I have kept all those precious nights safe with me, when you stayed in my bed, drawing invisible circles on my skin until you forged your way to the deepest core of my being without getting noticed. I have kept all those days locked in my heart, when you’d know exactly how to turn my frowns upside down when all else and everybody else failed.

You can’t take those moments away, my love. I do NOT, for a moment, question anything that has passed. I have touched your core and have known places in your body where your secrets have found their resting place. I know your hideaway and the color of your soul. I have fought with your demons and have seen you outgrowing almost everyone in your life. May be right from the start, I knew that one day you would outgrow me as well. I knew.

So, I do not question it.

Love is like that. It does not always promise ‘I’ll stay’ and yet, somehow, in the act of loving another and losing oneself, it does. It stays.

Love is like that. I will always remember you as the girl who made me believe that the best miracles in this world are never things, they are people. You were nothing less.

As for me, you won’t find any other guy who can take away my place. Or maybe you will. But the earth always revolves around the sun and it doesn’t matter where life will take me, I know you will always be my sun. There won’t be another you. There can never be another you.

Even as you have chosen to leave, I want you to know this- our LOVE shall always remain ours. In a way, I will always keep on having you – your most vulnerable part, right here within me. And no one, not even you can take that away from me.
