Envious Wish

Image Source: Google

I was seeing him after years, but yet the thrill he caused within me was still the same. We had been madly in love years ago but it had all come to an end in an instant, when he proposed. Since I came from a broken family, the concept of relationships scared me. It was really hard, but we had to move on. But today when I see him with his wife, I feel a pang of jealousy and cannot help but wish that I was in her place.

  4. The decision taken IS TAKEN. It has become part of past. What is needed now - not to crib on it and moving on with life.

  10. The biggest evil in this world resides inside you only and that is fear. I wish she had gone with him. But still then can't blame her.

  11. Sometimes realizations come late... Decisions are not made...
    And... after years, when loneliness remains,, and old age happens... Such thoughts become indispensable.
