It was over a long time back . . .

I looked below..into the dark abyss.
One step and there was no turning back.
A lot of thoughts crossed my mind.
But I was determined.

I could feel the nip in the air.
It pierced through my body.
“Where is he?” I thought.
I knew there was going to be no one there.

He did not even know I was here.
Yet, I thought he would come.
Once upon a time it was like that…
Yes..Once Upon a time.

A tear rolled down my cheek.
I didn’t know if it was due to the chilly weather or due to the memories I was still clinging on to.
It was Over.It was Over long back.
Only I hadn’t realized.
