Even after all these weeks that collectively will make months, and months that together will make years; I still wait for your call.
People say, love fades as days pass, as weeks go by, as months fly, as years end, and this is what I thought to be true until I met you. Until I met you, I thought love is nothing but some hormones inside rumbling and jumbling during the initial few months. Until I met you, I thought I am not a kind of guy who would eagerly wait for someone’s call other than debtors and HRs (after interview).
Until I met you, society had fed into my mind that love fades away as years pass by. The reason behind this I found is Taking Someone for Granted.
People take love for granted as togetherness has been there for long. They take for granted the one they love, and the glow of love, care, empathy, fades away gradually.
Until I met you and have been with you for years, I thought the same is going to happen to us. Our love will fade away as well. The way it was in the initial days of our relationship, it won’t be the same after few years. The curiosity, eagerness, adrenaline rush, impatience, desire, urge- to talk, to meet, to kiss, to greet, to hold hands, to touch, to see, to listen to your voice, to feel, to heal, to text, to walk, to look into your eyes, will fade away; this is what I thought.
But..but..it has been weeks that have turned into months that turned into years- and I still feel the same for you.
But..but..it has been fights, disagreements, quarrels, misunderstandings, shouting, tears, bad days, we have been through- and I still look forward to your morning text the very next day.
It has been love, agreements, laughs, mocking, care, empathy, understanding, joyful moments, togetherness, we have been through all these months- and I still wait for your call- I do not know why.
To my surprise, I still, eagerly, with all my heart, wait for your call, to listen to your voice, because I still feel the same for you. Because, it is still your voice that saves me and gives me a reason to feel alive. Because, it is still with you that I feel home.
But..but..do you feel the same?
