How can I forget that day?
It was the day when it all happened. I never believed in love till I met her. The day I met her, I realized that love was supreme. For a man who wasn’t determined to fall in love, fell for that gorgeous beauty. Who was she? For weeks, her thoughts strolled inside my mind. With each passing day, my urge to meet her grew strong and stronger. You might tag me a lunatic! But I wouldn’t mind being called that. If she was a goddess I would have prayed to her every day. I never met her again. Her thoughts started fading away. Cursing my luck, I got back to my regular work – Marketing. Being a Marketing Manager, my primary task was to visit various companies and promote our products.
During one such visit, I met her. She was the one whom I was supposed to meet. She was the Product Manager at Fuji Labs. We discussed in details about our product but at that moment, I couldn’t describe what I was going through. I felt as if a gazillion butterflies were fluttering inside my stomach. Days passed and I thought that the Almighty had listened to all my prayers and I got to know her close. With each passing day, we got to know each other better. One day I spilled the beans and told her everything. I emptied the content of my heart that stored memories and thoughts only about her. She remained stunned for a while and there was a deafening silence! This silence haunted me for days. But she never replied me. Things had changed for me. I couldn’t sleep properly. What if she rejected me? I was getting bizarre thoughts on my mind. My love for her was pure! She called me that very night to confirm that she even felt the same. I could never believe my ears.
We lived together happily for years. Like every bond, even we had our ups and downs. I couldn’t live up to her expectations and she believed that she was not my priority. I had zillion reasons to tell her what she meant to me only if she agreed to listen to it. None of my words could translate into actions and she believed that I had taken her for granted. But sadly she never respected my feelings. She wanted to discuss and asked to move on. She asked me if we could be friends and nothing more. I was shattered. If being busy in life can question someone’s priority and interest in a relationship then it was the most absurd thing that I came across. I begged, pleaded, urged and requested but none of my methods to get her back worked. I had lost hopes by then. I knew that she was a stubborn woman. I was upset and saw her leaving my life silently.
How could I forget that day?
It was 17th May 2011 when I met her and 17th May 2015 when I lost her.
