If Only YOU Knew...

The story is continuation of  CHANGE?! I thought to give it a try, and work on my creative skills of writing sentences. ;)

"So, family must be searching a guy for marriage"

"Hmm...Did you see anyone?"

"Going to...You love someone?"



"Naa...I won't"

"Tell me, You know I am a good secret keeper."............"OK, I won't ask you again, if it hurts."

The next few seconds silence talked for them. They both understood this language and it was never disturbing. No one took the initiative to speak. Finally the guy spoke as by now he knew her calmness, calmness for which he had fallen in love with her.

"When are we meeting?"

"I don't know. You live so far &..."

"Aa, aa, aa, not that excuse again. I still live in this world."

"Don't say that! I will kill your devilish side and dare you babble the nasty talk of yours!"

"AHA! The longest sentence you must have said till today."

"Do not start it."

"Sorry! But as the saying goes *'Clocks slay time...Time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life'."

"OK,OK, Mr.Brainy, We will meet soon." She said between her laughter. "Bye!"

"Bye!" (See You, My Love)

She continued to laugh after hanging up, tears rolled down her cheeks. Time! brought the souls together and parted them too.

It will be the time, that will prove whether they are destined to be together till eternity?

Amidst the sound of koyal, kids playing, evening walks of elderly, couples strolling, their hands entwined; they sat facing the horizon. The reflection like twinkling stars on the ripples of waves from sun rays and everything about the evening was enthralling for them.

The cool sea breeze was ruffling her hair, though she was gazing at the waves, through corner of her eyes, she felt his eyes looking at her. Her lips curved a bit, their eyes met and both smiled.

"Did you meet the guy?"

"Yes. I did."



"Why do you always wait for the question to be put forward?"

"How will I know what you want to hear? I don't have a telepathic mind."

"Fine! What was his reply?"

"Ain't any!" She said quietly.

"Forget it. He doesn't know what he has lost!"

"Mr. Brainy, deep thought?!.....Let's concentrate on you for a while."

"Exactly my point. I want you to concentrate on me."

"Shut up!" She giggled."If you find your love, how will you confess or what will you say?"

"I will rather sing."

"WOW! That's cool. Sing it now, I want to hear it."

"For whom?"

"Oh....Where is your power of imagination?"

He never had to use any imagination, because his love was right in front of him.

He began to sing, she closed her eyes as his mystical voice touched her soul. Tears warmed his eyes and his voice choked once, even she sensed it as the closed eyes flickered. He continued singing and her feet tapping along.


The girl always waited for the boy to ask questions, since she loved to hear them from him. He was the only person in her life who understood her silence. She wasn't just enjoying the tunes of the song with closed eyes, but she had no strength to look in his tender eyes. That night she cried, only cried...

Your angelic Look,
Your alluring Smile,
Can't stop loving you,
not even for a while...

You are my world without an end,
Will love you, 
Now and forever,
My feelings are restrained!

It's getting harder to stay away from you,
If only YOU knew,
How much I love you!

If only YOU knew,
I love Only You!

You can never make someone to fall in love with you. You can control your own emotions and never that someone.

*Quote by William Faulkner

  3. But alas, they aren't together yet. Make them together soon :)
    The story is going on good.

    Blasphemous Aesthete

  4. noooo...y did it had to end on a sad note? :( lovers should always be a part of happy endings! so I request a part-3 too :))

    and ur experimentation went pretty good..natural yet its good a special feel to it..keep writing :)


  5. Don't worry, 'she will be loved'.(maroon5).

    Unrequited love is painstakingly beautiful, and sadly so! :(

    And I love the song 'I will always be right there' by Bryan Adams. :)

  6. Well penned!!!

    Maybe,what the girl needs to do right now is to open her heart,open it widely... and let the love comes in...

    And that's how the lights gets in as well..

  7. Hey, Hi
    Well, that was a beautiful post...the continuity was unbroken...and the story seems so real..nice.

    The Silhouette...

  8. Poo I want a Happy Ending for this one:)

  9. @Fatima...Thanks!!!
    Yep! The song is very special to me :)

    @Simran...Thanks for appreciating my writing skills, working on it :)

    @Anshul....Yes Alas! They still are apart. Well, as said the time will decide...
    Thanks :)

    @Sarah...Every story can't have happy endings, sometimes loving each other is just not enough for a relation to stay forever...
    Thanks a lot, as you felt something special in it:)

    Yep, will surely continue the story :)

  10. @Sayak...Unrequited love sometimes hurts a lot!

    and Hey, those songs are one of my favorite. Firstly thought about "I will be right there" as the song choice, but felt "Everything I do" makes it more special here :)

    @Blood Is Red...The girl can't do it, she is definitely not resisting the love to come to her, but she is waiting for something! :)

    @Vishal...Thanks a lot! :)

    @Eon...It seems real, coz its the story of many hearts!
    Thanks a lot :)

    @R...Lets see, whether they are destined to be together or not?!

  11. I am in love with this song.. Thank u for posting it..
    Why cant they be together..? What's stopping them? I wish you bring a sequel with the answer or bring them together...
    Nicely written.. touchy :)

  12. Very beautiful! Couldnt go away without leaving a comment. Good wishes Poonam!


  13. Have something for you..

  15. Awwwww............Poonam..I am waiting :)..

  16. @Nidhi...The reason they can't be together is due to different tradition.
    Thanks a lot :)

  18. ♥Love your blog♥

  19. Every ending is not happy.
    Your word "You can never make someone to fall in love with you. You can control your own emotions and never that someone" is a bitter truth of life and that's life.

  20. @Mia & Mary Mur...Thanks!

    @Prateek...You got it right, every ending cannot be happy! & It's Life...
    Thanks :)

  21. People keep searching for their soulmates but when they do come along.... so does the ... ignorance .... fear.... doubts....questions... wait... hoplessness...
    Its strang how our emotions and desires are ruled by self created irony


  22. You had this in you.... it is brilliant dear... you must write more of it.... I could not stop for a moment... the flow the lucidity... the magic.. the attraction..... the pain .... the beautiful pain

    God bless you dear

    God bless your pen

    Take care

    P.S You never need be scared of love... the ones we love are not love personified in totality.... and love if personified would always cradle you as it's favorite baby.

    Smile :) :)

  23. Did not get the follow up comment option the first time... some error. so had to come again :) :)

  24. @Ritz...and we continue living with it!
