A cup of coffee and memories

Here I am, sitting at the same table in café where we used to,
Hand in hand we talked about our days,
And about our future together.

If we were having coffee here today,
I would have told you how much I loved you,
And what you mean to me.

But you chose to leave me alone and walk away,
You chose to hide the truth behind the lies,
And break my heart over and over again.

I know you will move on,
And I would too.
But you will never find love like mine.

If we were having coffee today,
I would have shared my little secret with you.
Which you will now never come to know.

You will never know about the pain I am in
You will never know what true love is
And you will never know what you lost.

I am holding our memories close to my heart,
And will never forgive your lies.
And I will miss you with every breath that I take.

This is a work of fiction and has no relation to my personal life. I am taking part in the Write Tribe Festival of Words and this is my seventh post. I am glad that I accepted this challenge and got to read so many great posts.

  1. Beautifully expressed. Don’t you think that cafes must have seen most patch ups and break ups? SO much can happen over a coffee.

    Congrats on completing the fest. It was a fun ride with you all. 🙂

  2. Sad tale, Anchal. You have expressed the emotions well in the poem. I hope she finds strength to move on. Well written.
    Congrats on completing the challenge. 🙂

  3. Beautiful poem from someone that’s experienced heartbreak. The first stages are hard until you can move on and find someone far better.

  4. What a very heartfelt poem. At first I thought it was based on your own experience. Glad its not. The words are expressive and it really attacks the emotion of the reader.

  5. This was so beautifully written. I could feel your pain as I was reading it. So many people have gone through something like this and a work of art like this could really help them.

  6. Until you said at the end of the post that it was a work of fiction I really thought this was a letter to a former spouse. Beautifully written x

  7. It’s always good to let go, and coffee helps an aching heart anyway. Ditch the boy, have the coffee, have fun and stay happy! Cheers!! 🙂
