Letting Go - Fragment Of Time

It's a lot harder than it seems. You talk all day, everyday. You fall asleep on the phone together. You wake up to good morning texts. You think about them every second you’re awake then when you’re asleep, you dream about them. 
You spend time with them whether it’s in person or not. They soon become a part of your everyday life and you get used to it… Then all of a sudden, they leave. 

Most of the time once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Meaning, no more late night calls, no more cute text messages (actually no texts at all), no more 'I love you'.. 

The first few days you will want to call, text, send them an ask, really do everything just to talk to them and restore what’s “normal”. But, as much as you try, things don’t change. 

The hardest part is letting go.
You check their Facebook often just to see what they’re doing and also to see if they have someone new. 

This person that was once your everything is now just a memory. A memory that you replay over and over again in your head. 

You spend nights reminiscing in the said words, shared laughs, the kisses, all the good things that went on during the time you two were together. 

Letting go can take weeks, months, even years. Remember that it was just a fragment of time, a memory that will someday fade.


  1. so, this will be big and fat because i love you and i love love and i love your insight into love and even though this post is about letting go, the love in it is too lovely to let go ;)

    the beautiful part of this post is even though you are talking of letting go, it takes you through some of your best memories... people will recall the morning texts they had received and the good night notes and all the beautiful poetry they have lived.. this is what makes even letting go so full of love..
    you nailed it saying that they end up being memories but the memories cannot be taken away by anyone and sometimes, memories give you the love that last a lifetime.
    i love you, you already know that, but this post just justifies the title of your blog brilliantly.
    you are an inspirational romance writer by all means.., brilliantly done... i will never let go of the memories we've made and the ones we're sure to make.. you're a precious gem to have and very beautiful too...

    1. Now this is what I call a 'big fat' comment! :P :D
      I love you back, Shruti! *hugs*
      I loved how you took this post and your perspective about it! Even I didn't plan to put so much love into it, that your comment has!
      Thank you so much for you awesomely kind words! :)
      You're priceless, I hope I meet you in person some day. :)

  2. You brought memories back. I tried letting go and then all the memories and times I had came flashing by just the way you mentioned. But the memories could not fade away.

    1. Your last statement and the first contradict, Red. They had faded. This post just brought them back. :)

  3. It's so beautiful written, Ayesha. Relationships are so complex and change sometimes like the season. The worse is you get so used to them that you will feel a part of you have gone.
