Someone Else’s

Written By Nischal Srinivasan (Grade 12)


In the realm of love, we danced a fragile waltz,

Two hearts entwined, under fate’s gentle pulse.

But a storm of misunderstanding did arise,

Leaving teardrops in her beautiful eyes.

With heavy hearts, we battled, she and I,

Our love turning to whispers and goodbye.

Apologies I offered, but silence her shield,

She drifted away, our love unconcealed.

Now she’s found solace in another’s embrace,

A new love blooming, a smile on her face.

I’m glad she’s happy, yet my heart bears a weight,

For I yearn for the love that was once our fate.

A specter of regret lingers in my mind,

Should I have fought harder, been more kind?

Or set her free, before she flew too high,

Now I’m left with memories, beneath a starry sky.

I watch them walk hand in hand, hearts aligned

, Invisible tears in my eyes, as I’m resigned.

They share embraces, laughter, and dreams anew,

My heart aches in silence, knowing I can’t undo.

So I’ll admire their love from this distant shore,

Though my heart still longs for what’s mine no more.

In the echoes of their joy, I’ll find my way,

Learning to move on, as I greet a new day.
