Stopped Loving You

Sonam Chhabra

 I stopped loving you the day
When I knew deep inside it was you but i refused to accept you as the reason

I stopped loving you the day
As i realised that there is no punishment in law for your treason

I stopped loving you the day
I got to know that i was worthy of something more than your false promises

I stopped loving you the day
When i lifted a heavy weight off my chest as i felt you leaving my bodily premises

I stopped loving you the day
I unleashed your true face to my naive self and it did hurt untill i stopped loving you

I stopped loving you the day
When i realised i could make myself happier and so i did stop loving you

I stopped loving you the day
I felt all the emotions at once pain hurt remorse anger and suffocation

I stopped loving you the day
I had to channel them into one -'relief' and that was my redemption

I stopped loving you the day
As i knew you were just my almost lover and nothing more

I stopped loving you the day
I felt nothing but ease in my embodiment and not a roar

I stopped loving you the day
I realised it was best to let you go and the easiest way would be to forgive you

I stopped loving you the day
i started loving myself and decided to rescue that foolish little girl inside me from you.
