WRITING SECTION You said you'd grow old with me In a beach house by the Caspian sea Thought we had time in our lives After surviving our darkest times But when I saw you, my light I felt time freeze by Just a glimpse of your silhouette Was a comfort for my eyes All these years where we stayed apart We both endeavored on our different paths It was the feeling of wanting to be with you Made me work and perspire Just to have a reunion with you I still had the same craze in my eyes But the moment I saw you with someone else I let my feelings die With a heavy smile I bid you goodbye Not knowing what future holds for us The shackles of my promise have gone rusty As I sit in our beach house alone thinking You said you'd grow old with me - Harshit Barmecha (20BCH018) CHEMFLASH VOLUME 22, ISSUE 1 27
