As I sat there waiting

No, counting minutes

I realised it was my own time

That was wasting away


No, counting on

Someone else

Who was Somewhere else

With Somebody else

Doing Something else.


I had suppressed my dreams

Somehow thinking

They were not as important

Valid even

As your own sounded

Not as far fetched

You could realize yours

I helped you

Putting my needs aside

Only for you to end up

With Someone else

Somewhere else

Doing Something else.


All hope is not lost

Time wasted cannot be recovered

Are you ever satisfied?

Did I not love you enough?

You said I was the one..

Why then be

With Someone else

Somewhere else

Doing Something else?


My friends said and say

It is high time

I let you go

Find a future

Their exact words are

A Somebody else

I deserve to be

Somewhere else

Doing Something else

Other than being

Consumed by thoughts of you.


Is this how it ends?

You, Somewhere else

Me, With Someone else

Both of us

Doing Something else

All so different

From the initial strategy we had?


It all starts with

Someone else

A Something else

And then

Somewhere.. Somewhere else

That’s how

I lost you

Somewhere. Something. Someone.

Would you be kind

To let me know

The order?

This Somebody needs closure

Not of everything but

Of the Some

And Else.

  8. I like the massive emotional effect that this verse has.

    I like the repetition.
    It grabs me by the hand and leads me to repose.


    Is this fiction though?
    Or it’s something else?
