I took the liberty of being candid with her, leading to a fight.
Neither can I accept my fault nor can I easily forgive her.
I wished I was not egoistic.
An inexpressible pain, a feeling of being squeezed from within.
Shall I tell her, how hurt I am?
what if she thinks am weak and sympathises!
How can I ignore her elegance in those natty outfits.
How can I brush aside her perfume that enlightens my mood.
Here she comes with the click-clack sound of her heels forcing all to take a peep.
I feel proud thinking that she is my girl whom the world admires.
I chose to keep my ego aside and walk towards her to apologise.
but she walks past me like a stranger.
Oops my ego hurts again!
