Chapter 3- Pretend

🎶Closure by Hayd🎶

(You told me I was beautiful, You told me I was your magnet, nothing could pull you away. It would be us against the world.)

“I cannot be with you anymore. I am leaving. “

(Why? Huh? Were we ever together? What is happening? This is absurd! )

The world was spinning. I lost focus of everything. One blink, then you were gone.

Tear drops fell. One at a time.

(I hardly cried, especially not over people! Everything is so absurd.. yet the only thing that made sense was that you had left. I was alone. You were gone. )

Then the stream turned into a gush of salty liquid. I broke down. The grey clouds were re-gathering. The storm got darker and darker. It was all black now.


I opened my eyes.

This room is not yellow canary. It is an ugly pink. Today is not my birthday, it’s still 6 months away. While, Manaa is far away, in another city.

That was all just a dream. No more crying, no more pain, no more absurdities.

The only thing that’s same is: I was alone.

While in this reality, you didn’t leave me.. you never would.

I had pushed you away. So far away, almost like you don’t EXIST. (I realise, we ended before we were even together, because I was scared.)

You do NOT exist!

Even if I repeated this a 1000 times, you do exist.

You exist in my memories.
You exist in my thoughts.
You exist in haunt my dreams.

I had pushed you away, I regret it now.

I could stop the nightmare. I could reach out to you. I could get a closure.

But I am still scared of “us”. So,

I will not approach you. (Pretend you don’t exist.)

I’ll erase your traces. ( Pretend you don’t exist. )

I’ll just call this a bad dream and move on.

Pretend you don’t exist!

The End.
