15 minutes of dilemma

'grrrrrr grrrrrr', I turned to my phone which stood steadily on my study table, and I saw her name flashing on the screen. There was a time when nothing else gave me as much joy as her name on that screen. But today it was different. Something surely had changed. But I had to be strong. I had to give her what she wanted. "I want a break", she had said. I had to make sure she has her break even if that meant breaking my own self.
"The next time we meet, we would meet as friends"
"...if we meet"

15 minutes of anguish

I stood there. Unshaken. I did not follow. I could not. Something in me stopped me. I saw her go, until she was far beyond sight. And then, a drop of tear rolled through my left eye, making its way down through my face only to meet its fate on the barren earth. The reality had hit me. It hit me hard. But I had to pull myself up. I had to let her go. But something had changed. I had lost a part of 'me' somewhere. Or rather she had taken it with her. And I had lost 'that' smile.
