Time Flows By

It was a petty fight but I didn’t talk to him, waiting for him to beg forgiveness. He tried but it just wasn’t enough for me and I didn’t talk to him for a whole week. Everything came back to normal later but not everything.

A few months ago I lost him to cancer; he closed his eyes that night to never see the daylight again…

Today when I sit alone going through the old memories, that week comes back to haunt and taunt me. 7 long days spent not talking to him. 168 hours of silence. 10,080 minutes wasted in fake anger. 604,800 seconds I breathed without him.

I had so much time to be by his side, feel his warm skin against mine and brush my lips against his. But anger snatched those precious moments from me and now I can’t go back and live it all over again no matter how much I wish to.

I have this question bugging me night and day, sucking my sleep. Why do we waste our love time when we know it will flow by? Answer me if you can because my eyes are heavy but still devoid of the bliss of dreams…

    Thats the thing about anger, it eats the time and create a unseen void which is not felt by the one who is angry!

    That’s very sad to hear. Anger is the enemy of wit, it creates chaos which feeds it in return. I have acted in a way which is so different from my normal behavior. I guess we just have to learn from our mistakes and be a better person when the next opportunity comes. It’s sad when the opportunity never comes, but all we can do is honor the memories of our loved ones and be how they would have want us to be, better for the future.

  5. Sometimes giving space gives lots of answers and a push to start all over again and not to repeat the same mistakes again!!
