My heart yearns

by Diksha S. Sharma (15)
Mary Immaculate Girl’s High School, Kalina

I saw you walking with her

Hand in hand,

Giving her the brightest smile ever.

There was something in me which ached,

Seeing you love another.


Before this day I never knew

Just how much I loved you

Just how much I yearned for you.

You make me feel wrong,

When the wrong one here is actually you.


I never thought that I would be left alone,

With no one to talk to,

With no one to hug,

With no one to listen to the grudge I hold.


Every time I see you with her

Reminds me of the times we’ve spent together.

The jealousy in me arises,

Knowing that now you’re even more close to her.


I put on my bravest face,

For others to know that I’m all fine.

But inside, I’m dying

Yearning to be the person in your arms once again.
