Half A Chance (with audio)

I think I could have fallen in love with you
if life had given us half a chance
Your smile would have sustained me on dark days
and I would have kissed your scars so gently

However, it was not to be 
life had some other plan– 
you are not with me 
I am with another man
So believe me when I say 
please know these words are true– 
if fate didn’t have a role to play
I would have fallen in love with you

I would have kissed your scars so gently
and your smile would have sustained me on dark days
If life had given us half a chance,
I think I could have fallen in love with you

    1. Thank you so much Radhika 💜 On a side note, I have been reading some of your poetry book. I really do adore your Haiku 😍 I’m up to ‘Kindness’ and it’s just so lovely.

      1. So I have a paid site which allows you to upload audio, kind of like uploading an image. I think this might be what you are asking 😊


      2. Yep. And I only did it because there was a half price deal. Do you do any audio readings through your IG account? That might be an option for you instead.


  2. I read it, I heard it, I felt every bit of emotion in this piece. I visited your site after someone suggested me, I want to read more of your work and I’ll surely do that in some time.

    Your voice is really sweet. I absolutely loved how calmly you were reciting what you’ve written.
    Also, I loved those words too.

    1. Thank you so much Rashmi. What a lovely comment to read 💜 It’s very kind of you to say, particularly as I remember you are a wonderful writer yourself. (I used to follow you a while ago before you edited your follower list. Rest assured I completely respected and understood your reasonings 💜💜💜)

      1. You’re really kind. I take my own time to know people, and I never really got to know you. I edited and made the list really short, it came out to be just 13 people whom I know in person too. But it’s never too late, I visited your blog and know you’re a great writer with a magical voice. I’ll continue to read more of you.
        It’s nice meeting you💛

      2. 💜 Lovely to have you. No pressure from me, I really do understand why you did that… I have contemplated it myself a few times. On a number of occasions I have removed followers who I felt were not legitimate. You keep doing what makes you happy Rashmi 😊


      3. Haha, okay I’m not the only one here 😅 good to know you too did that, makes me feel less crazy to declutter people.

        But on a serious note, I feel bad that I decluttered you, but yes ofcourse I did not know you earlier, but now you’re in my list. I’ll visit your blog as and when I find time.
        See you around ✨

  3. Very beautiful poem about how fate thwarts a lover’s plan. I love the wistful nature of it. But it’s also so close to the bone. I know this feeling.
