Unrequited Love

December 8, 2009

He always wanted to kiss her on her well shaped – thick lips – that would curve into the world’s most charming smile. His friends thought he was in lust. He believed it to be love. But it never happened. She left. He remained right there where he was; hoping for her return, waiting for their reunion and writhing in pain.

She never returned. So the movies were always wrong where the man and woman finally meet. Perhaps movies were not that wrong as much as his thinking was. He failed to let her go when she had no feelings for him.

    movies are just visual form of dreams … which always go unfulfilled …

    We either accept movies as truth without fiction, or we decide to pick out scenes that we want to believe. And sometimes some people need to pick out scenes in order to believe the realities of life.

    Yes, the guy was at fault. If I can use that word, she didn’t lead him on, it was him who decided to lead himself on. Sometimes dreams will not become reality, no matter how we desire them to be.

    Dreams are dreams so let them be dream….

    AS far as movies are concerned, just watch them and forget, reality is so far bitter than imaginary movie world, accept the reality and live with it rather decieving yourself….

    he was decieved cause he thought the fascination long lasting and merge with cunning reality but he failed…. :-/

      That’s why I like hard hitting movies… the one that depicts the realities of life 😉

    Letting go is not dependent on knowing if the other person has feelings for you or not. It only depends on your feelings for the other person. That person was hopeful for her return. Hope is what Love gives us. It doesn’t have to be fulfilled, but you only fail when you loose hope. He didn’t loose hope, so he did not fail. He loved, and loved successfully…

      I like your take… but this thing of going on and on aimlessly can ruin too 🙂

    I agree with Haris. Hope is the crux in the matter. Even dreaming is not bad if it gives U hope and courage. There is a saying that ” We Dream so We Do.” Our dreams make us believe on what we can achieve with committment and true feelings. If his feelings for her are true then he should be hopeful that she’ll come on one day. Let me quote a beautiful poem of Faiz Ahmed Faiz here in this context:


    Gulshan-e-Yaad main garr Aaj dam-e-Baaday Sabaa…
    Phir se chahay keh Gul Afshaan ho tou hojanay dou…
    Umr-e-Rafta kay kisi taaq pay bisra huwa dard..
    Phir se chahay keh farozaan ho tou hojanay dou…

    Jaisay baiganay se miltay ho waisay hee sahee…
    Aao dou chaar gharhi mairay muqaabil baitho..
    Garchay mill baithain gay Hamm Tum tou Mulaqat kay baad..
    Apna ehsaas-e-Ziyaan aur ziada hoga..
    Hamm Sukhan hongay jo Hamm Tum tou herr ik baat kay beech…
    Ann kahi baat ka mohoom sa parda hoga..
    Koi Paimaan na Main Yaad dilaaonga na Tum…
    Koi Mazmoon Wafa ka na Jafa ka hoga….

    Gard-e-Ayyam ki Tehreer ko Dhonay kay liay..
    Tum se Goya hon Dam-e-Deed jo Meri Palkain..
    Tum jo Chaho tou suno aur jo na chaho na suno…
    Aur jo Harf karain Mujh se Guraizaan Aankhain…
    Tum jo Chaho tou Kaho aur Jo Na Chaho, Na Kaho

      But even the hope should be realistic. I think the more one is realistic the easier life becomes.

      Thanks for quoting a wonderful poem by Faiz!

    if u have some feelings for anyone..u should let that person know that feeling of yours….and also u should not be worried about their reactions too…. (love gives that power to you and if u r not having that power to tell ur beloved about your feelings then it is not the love which you are nurturing but something else)

    for instance: i love going through your blog and hence I am mentioning that in front of the whole world….its as simple as that !!

      Interesting point!

      But that 100-word fiction was basically about unrequited love – the love that is not reciprocated even if you tell someone!
