“I wish I could change you

The way you changed those earrings.”



Just like the tinkling of those earrings,

Mesmerise the wind,

Your songs,

Are cherished by my heart.


Just like those earrings, 

Penetrate your skin,

Your memories,

Pierce my heart.



It hurt every single time, 

you tried to detach them,

for a while.

I thought you wore them as an emblem, 

of your pride.

But I was blind.

I was fooled by the hopes of forever.


Until that day,  

When you changed those earrings.

That day,

I understood you had different ones for 

different occasions. 

Different ones for different lovers.


That day,

 I realised nothing is forever.


Those holes in your earlobes

Left by those earrings.

And this hole in my heart, 

Left by you.


Yadav is a BTech student at JNTU College of Engineering, Hyderabad, India
