Why Didn't You Wait?

It was an unsaid protocol
To wait for me!

I agree that I had taken you for granted
But, how can you leave me all of a sudden?

Where did the decades of promises go?
What happened to the stolen glances?

Why did you do this now?
How can you leave me all of a sudden?

  3. Leaving all of a sudden. Probably, it must have happened gradually over a long time. We just didn't notice keenly.

  7. How we all have suffered a painful break up and possibly even saddened others too by our actions. However it is useful to have some disappointments or failures even, as part of our education in life.

  12. I can feel the shock in this unexpected departure. You have captured the universal feelings of disbelief and betrayal very well.

  13. It is a shock when we don't realize it is coming...the suddenness is harsh.

  20. Taking things or someone for granted can always leave us feeling empty when they've gone. It feels so sudden, but the leaving usually does happen slowly when we're not looking. Still, knowing that doesn't make it hurt less. Great writing!
