The Last Letter

Sometimes I wonder what it is that went wrong between us.

Why is it that we both are so bitter about the past? Isn’t it a wise thing to forget the past, leave everything behind and start afresh?

But that is not a possibility anymore, starting afresh.

We have tried, and it has failed. There cannot be a “start afresh” between us anymore. There cannot be a “forgive and forget”. There can be no “us”.

It’s sad, this feeling of hopelessness which I succumb to, each time your name crosses my mind.

What went wrong, really?

We were so great together. We were like two peas in a pod, like peanut butter and jelly, like a song and its melody…

I think I know what went wrong. We both did.

There is no point in trying to revive something that is dead. We are not God. We cannot give life. We can only take – and in that we have become self-proclaimed experts.

I take responsibility for killing this relationship between me and you; something which was so beautiful and full of life.

And even though I’ll never really know what drove me to this madness, I don’t think I’ll ever regret it.

I am driving the final nail in the coffin: We are through. I hope our paths never cross again.


  1. ahh the breakups... why do we have to break up and then be so bitter about it? Sigh.
