Teardrops on my guitar

Cloudy skies and cold winds graced the air since morning. Tired and miserable, that was how I felt today, around mid-day. Sometimes, you just can’t get rid of ‘the’ memories, certain relationships which inevitably get royally messed up. It seems beyond your control. Assumptions and misunderstandings happen. Unspoken thoughts and prolonged silences. Irritation and hesitation grace the chance meetings. And finally the day comes when one walks in and the other walks out. You are plagued with the question what went wrong ?! Was it your fault !! This is not just between a guy and a girl, but between best friends, between childhood friends…No one really knows what happened. Maybe it is because we never sat down and talked about it. Or we didn’t want to discuss and complicate things further. The outcome is that a relationship is lost.

The lonely mood is accompanied by the teardrops on my guitar. I have been playing it on and on for quite sometime. The lines,”He is the reason for the teardrops on my guitar. The only things that keep me on a wishing star”, strike a chord.It falls in tune with the emotions of the moment. Especially when you are thinking about things that might-have-beens and you can’t stop. When you still want to be friends even though things have changed. When you think of those precious moments, moments of  laughter and fun; you can’t stop. That is the reason of the teardrops.

You go back and try talking but then it may be too late for the fences to mend. Too late, but you try. When the other person doesn’t want to hear it, you finally stop. Deep inside, you still pray that someday you will still be able to smile at each other. And you move on with each passing day hoping that maybe time will you heal…
