“So it’s true, when all is said and done, grief is the price we pay for love.”
– E.A. Bucchianeri


I’ve always been looking

for empty spaces

spaces in your heart

spaces in your fleeting glance

to adjust mine

space next to you in the library,

an empty cozy corner in the party,

where the deafening noise is

calmed by your soothing voice

space next to you

on the commuter train

next to you in the bar

where I can sit and listen to all

the stories you have to say


I went to all the bars and the cocktails places

and looked for you in the half-filled drink

walked all the dark alleys


seeking for the company

under the moonlit sky
where you might have been


I always looked for the spaces

between my fingers

meticulously made

to adjust yours


I always thought the curve of my body

in the night was like that

to fit yours

I always thought

that I belonged to you

I always believed in the soul mates

till you came and broke my

heart to pieces

made it unforgiving

and now it doesn’t

even accept

my love anymore.

  1. 💔💔💔

    This is so heartbreaking and relatable.

    Looking for yourself in someone’s words
    Searching yourself in someone’s thoughts,
    Fighting with your own self saying yes I do exist for him
    Then you notice a wall of glass
    A wall from where you see all of him but to him you never appeared

    Then you lose faith,faith in love,faith in yourself

  2. Oh, Girl!!! Your words always seem to hit the bullseye of my heart!! This was way beyond beautiful and emotional!! You misted me up! Are you like me? You know you have written something really good when you can have someone shed a tear??? My wife is my gauge! Ha! Too many words and lines to focus on a favorite. I’m going to have to go through this and gather seeds of inspiration!!
    Bellissimo, Dear Megha, Bellissimo!!

  4. We all are looking for those empty spaces. Some find the heart which has that space for them while some don’t. These expressions are beautiful.
