The End… Virtually

Take my broken heart

Take my broken heart

When it comes to making and ending love, I like it the old-fashioned way. Today’s technology however is changing the way we connect

Or disconnect.

Within seconds, a heart is broken with a click of a mouse, a text message or a Facebook status change.

Despite the many gadgets that allow us to communicate whenever wherever, we’ve forgotten how to connect. We cut ties just as quickly as we make them, albeit superficially, in this highly connected world.

Because we don’t have to look a person in the eye and see their hurt and pain. We prefer to look away as our once beloved chokes on their sadness. It’s easier, you see.

No conversation. No dialogue.

No face-to-face drama that would otherwise leave a modern woman’s mascara in a mess.

Perhaps, it’s best.

A few years of what seemed like a happy relationship is virtually wiped away.

First with silence. Then death by email.

It’s been awhile now and I haven’t heard from you since we last spoke so I guess this is your way of saying goodbye.

I am disappointed. It would be nice if we spoke at least. But there’s never really a good way of leaving someone, so your silence will have to do.

I just wanted to let you know the last few years have been one of the best and happiest so far. As a person, I have grown and learnt so much – and you were a very important part of that. You taught me to see life through a different filter. I only have good memories to keep.

I would have liked a different ending but if our future was a product of both our choices…

But life goes on. It doesn’t wait. If I see you around the corner, I’ll blow you a kiss and a smile – know that I am happy.


I wrote you a letter in April last year. It reflects where my head and heart is. I never sent it. I was waiting for the right time. And while time may have either passed or was simply never going to come, I’m sending it to you now. May be it will help you open up a bit more the next time you meet someone fabulous like me
