When we’ve argued and had a dispute
When all our conversations have gone mute
When words stop birthing and thoughts don’t grow
You have no idea darling, I feel so poor and low
When there’s no chit-chat and talking between us
When a tiny little thing turns into such a big fuss
When we don’t talk, there’s no soothing noise
I wonder what to do, I have no choice
The wall turns pale and the furniture stares at me
Within our home, they’re witnesses of my misery
I feel so cruelled and helpless with everything around
When we’re constantly quarreling, but without a sound
My vision goes blurred and the sun fades away
My mind goes blank and dull goes the day
For days and nights, when our eyes don’t meet
Neither mornings, nor at evenings we greet
Lost is the love and emotions shattered
Only ashes we have, of all that mattered
We don’t even know of what went wrong
No, ya I know, nothing really went wrong…!
Then, why does it take such a long time…?
Is there no cure, no quick regime…?
Inside my heart, I bleed and suffer
Please for once, let your ego surrender
My heart, I feel is tied up tight
There’s so much sorrow and less delight
Why do you always, have to prolong and delay…?
Couldn’t you this time, refute my dismay…?
Am I the only one to break the ice forever…?
Don’t take me for granted baby, I can’t always pamper…!
O my love, I hope you will value
How much eternal, my love is for you
Pretending that I’m watching everything but you
I constantly gaze and steal glimpses of you
I wish for once you could reciprocate and be fair
To the labors I’ve always done in doing the repair
Don’t you care for the twinkle in my eye…?
That, for every little reason you easily let it die
I wish that some day you show some good concern
And realize that I’m waiting, this time it’s your turn
So come and hold me, make me cry out all my pain
Tell me honey that you’re sorry for being late again
Baby you don’t know, I’ll feel so nice and light
I’ll really say nothing but “it’s okay… it’s alright”
But again my love, when the next time this occurs
Please promise me, it’ll not be me who suffers
That you’ll not take too much of a wait time
Just assure me of that and I promise it’ll all be fine
Neither yours nor my heart should suffer and bleed
To make it beautiful, some promises are all we need
A promise to stay happy, a promise to be fair
A promise to love and a promise to care
But alas, right now I really feel so poor
We don’t talk; we don’t look at each other
My voice within is choking, I’m dying
Too much it seems, my soul is crying
I want it back and I want it like before
Nothing less than “that love”, and nothing more
Holding hands, when we sleep at nights
While we smile again and forget our fights
When we don’t talk, when I don’t hear your voice
I wonder, when again there will be reason to rejoice
It’s my only prayer, may good times soon return…!
May pain pass out and take a jolly turn…!
Let us again, recover the bliss
Let us again, share a goodnight kiss
And one more thing, I want to declare
That, I for you will always be there
And these feelings of mine, while I am narrating
I want you to know that I’ll continue waiting
So please my love, come back soon
Sit on my lap and watch the moon
And tomorrow there will be a brighter sunrise
Our days of courtship will once more reprise…!!!

Hence, it is modestly requested for this not to be perceived as a reflection of the writer’s personal emotions in a relationship. However, a lot of us who are in a relationship may as well be able to relate to these emotions due to the very nature of relationships as to how complex they are and that, quarrels & clashes are parts and parcels of the bond of love that binds the individuals involved. It is hoped that this unreal (to the author) tale of feelings which is made-up to express the sentiments one runs through when having quarreled with his/her beloved, is reasonably relatable; and that, it is able to give all of us a view into our other (better) half’s perceptions of how he/she would have felt when we had sometime disregarded their right to expect us to break the ice and pamper not our ego but the relationship…
