Those words that the eyes try to shout while the lips stay shut,
Those moments where the time is moving while the mind tries to stop it,
Those days where decisions were made, not by calculations, but by the pangs of the gut.
Those conversations that were heard, but not said, staring at the horizon watching the sunset.
Those hugs that lasted for seconds but lived for an eternity!
Those tears that weren’t seen but felt as a lump in the throat.
Those errands that had to be done, not with passion but due to responsibility!
Those verses that were written because the heart wanted to emote.
Those truths that were avoided,
Those facts that were overlooked,
Those places where trust was exploited,
Those lies that kept you hooked.
In the end, only one question arose,
What did you have in mind for each of those “Those”?
