Chocolate Bits

That time isn’t very long ago,
When we would beg our juniors for,
A chocolate every lunch break.

Desperate afternoons, right?
Bunk our preps, just to feel rebellious,
Go off to the school’s ‘corner’ of secrets,
Talk about anything and everything,
Over that half bit of chocolate.

It doesn’t seem very long ago to me,
I remember it all, fondly, do you?
Not to be presumptuous,
But I don’t think you remember ‘us’,
Because your name,
Hasn’t pinged my phone for a while.

Of course its okay,
Chocolates melt with time,
And their sweetness fades.
They leave us with the flavor,
And our brains full of pleasure,
So do school friendships.

Yet sometimes I hope that you would text me,
“Hi, are you free to talk?”
“Yes, I am, we have so much to catch up on!”


Though when your messages show up,
I can’t find anything to share with you.

I guess, the fault is in the distance and time,
But some day I will knock your door,
With a chocolate bumper in my hand.
And maybe we’ll talk about anything and everything,
Like we used to,
Over a half bit of chocolate.

  3. I’ve never actually talked with a friend over a bar of chocolate, but I get the feeling of this poem completely… I always miss my old school friends…

    1. Aww.. do you talk once in a while with them?

      1. Erm, not too much (going to a lot of different schools equals having a lot of old school friends equals not talking to them too much), but sometimes!

  11. My dear Riya, one is really fortunate if one has a friend whose presence you can enjoy in silence. The silence has it’s own language! I do hope you find such a friend. Ofcourse may you have plenty with whom you can share a piece of chocolate.

    Also, don’t wait up. Instead, reach out.

    I love your story. It’s poured from the depths of your heart and that’s what makes it beautiful!
