Memories of You
We were walking side by side, you and me. I tripped and fell into some feelings. You steadied me with your hand in mine.
And I am feeling a warmth enveloping me.
As I dreamt out loud about our life together. Destiny clipped my flight short explaining that we were meant to stay in each other’s hearts, but not in our lives.
And a single tear glides down my cheek.
Every now and then I open the bottle of memories, they spill all over me, as the past replays in my head, I live our life together all over again!
I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words 8th – 14th December 2013. The Theme for today is Memory/Memories
December 8, 2013 12:06 am|
Memories have that magic of making us happy and sad at the same time. Awesome start of the fest. 🙂
December 9, 2013 5:03 pm|
True, some memories warm us up from the inside and some can tear us apart too, at the same time! Thanks Sheethal 🙂

He ditched her or she ditched him? 😛
December 9, 2013 5:06 pm|
Nobody ditched anybody 😀 They were not destined to be together! 🙂

I remember someone saying she cannot write poetry , but this little nostalgia is so poetically and heart touchingly done . Kudos <3

Sridevi – you beat me to it….As I read, I found myself saying, “This is the girl who says she can’t understand poetry.” Perhaps, she can’t understand, but she certainly creates it!
December 8, 2013 11:00 am|
😛 Indeed Corrine and she creates it so beautifully
December 9, 2013 5:20 pm|
LOL Corinne! 😀 The fact is I still cant understand poetry! 😛
Thanks and so glad that you believe that this piece is poetic! 🙂 ♥
December 9, 2013 5:09 pm|

Lovely! I forgot that for you it is already the 8th!! I am still on Saturday. Memories are such a gift. ♥
December 9, 2013 5:26 pm|
Oh yes, some memories are wonderful gifts 🙂
I guess, with this time difference, you get more time to catch up or is it the other way around 😛
December 8, 2013 4:47 am|
Some memories though sad, are cherished memories. I have some of those too and yours took me back to one of them. Lovely Shilpa. So beautifully narrated.
December 9, 2013 5:31 pm|

Thank you Pratikshya and welcome to this space 🙂
December 8, 2013 4:58 pm|
Shilpa, love how ‘feelings’, Destiny’ and ‘memories’ have been beautifully object-ified by you in this post. A most lovely creation of 100 words. I don’t remember the last time a handful of words spoke so powerfully to me. Well done!
December 9, 2013 5:59 pm|
Thanks a lot, Sakshi. Glad you liked this piece of writing 🙂
December 8, 2013 6:56 pm|
Beautiful! So many emotions captured in a 100 words. Looking forward to your posts for the rest of the festival.
December 9, 2013 6:00 pm|
Thanks a lot José and yes, see you around 🙂
December 8, 2013 8:31 pm|
So touching! Sometimes it’s hard to open those bottle of memories and sometimes it’s sweet to relive them and imagine what could have been!
December 9, 2013 6:02 pm|
Yes, you are bang on Robyn… things which could have been but would never be! 🙂
December 8, 2013 8:35 pm|
Destiny clipped my flight short explaining that we were meant to stay in each other’s hearts, but not in our lives.
You have written beautifully. At times many wishes do not come true. Maybe they are destined. But re-living them is romantic too. Like opening a bottle of perfume to inhale the fragrance and closing it immediately but a little fragrance escapes into the air making the whole atmosphere pleasant. loved your style of writing.
December 9, 2013 6:04 pm|
You have elaborated on this so beautifully, Kalpana. ♥
Loved it and thank you 🙂
December 8, 2013 10:11 pm|
A life laden with memories wraps up the autumn blues! Now who is poetic here Shilpa 🙂
December 9, 2013 6:09 pm|
It’s you!! Thanks for sharing such a beautiful verse! 🙂
December 8, 2013 10:19 pm|
How do you write so much in just 100 words!! Your prose itself is so poetic and beautiful that it paints a picture on its own. Lovely and very appealing….
December 9, 2013 6:11 pm|
Thanks a lot Bhavya and good to see you back 🙂
December 8, 2013 11:39 pm|
That was beautiful…
and yea, that was truly poetic.
December 9, 2013 6:11 pm|
Thank you Pixie 🙂

//we were meant to stay in each other’s hearts, but not in our lives//
This portion simply made the post that much more extra special for me 😀

The drabble tells of the memory gradually….. 🙂
December 9, 2013 7:15 pm|
December 9, 2013 6:55 pm|
Yes, some memories warm, others make us shudder. Thanks for sharing with us!
December 9, 2013 7:16 pm|
Thks Michelle 🙂
December 10, 2013 6:57 am|
Brilliant piece Shilpa 🙂 You have expressed so much in so few words…Memories never fail to make your eyes twinkle, be it through a tinge of regret or a hint of joy.
December 10, 2013 2:12 pm|
Thank you, Reshma. Agree with your thoughts. Also when we remember happy times, we remember the moments that brought us joy. But the sad memories have the power to hurt us for a long time!
December 10, 2013 7:48 am|
A single tear says it all.
Shilpa ,at times it hurts.Isnt it and we still keep a brave face
December 10, 2013 2:13 pm|
True, although you are torn up inside, you do have to put up a brave face! 🙂
December 10, 2013 1:59 pm|
100 words and so much emotion. loved it 🙂
December 10, 2013 2:14 pm|
Thank you, Preethi. Glad you liked this drabble 🙂
December 10, 2013 2:01 pm|
amazed at the way you frequently( almost daily) compose your Drabbles and fiction in 100 words. Crisp,concise and the message is clear. The punctuations and fonts speak along with the few words.You are blesssed with this talent:).
December 10, 2013 2:15 pm|
Thanks a lot, Asha! You are too generous! 🙂 ♥
December 10, 2013 5:27 pm|
i agree with what most of the fellow commentators have said… a lot of emotion in a 100 words. And yes, some of our most sacred memories are buried within our hearts… viewing them every once in a while can be very painful.
December 11, 2013 1:13 am|
Thanks Roshan. I like the term you used…’sacred memories’… yes, they are just that!
December 10, 2013 8:12 pm|
this post has such a poetic feel to it……falling into feelings, destiny clipping wings…poetry is in ur blood..whether u agree or not!
December 11, 2013 1:15 am|
Nope, don’t agree with that… this is poetry by fluke! 😀
December 10, 2013 9:34 pm|
Madame drabble queen herself you are 😀 Another great 100 words from you 🙂
December 11, 2013 1:16 am|
Thanks Richa and good to see you back after your vacations 🙂
December 11, 2013 12:34 am|
A winner if there was a contest.. Alas! I guess you win hands down in the number of comments :).. Girl.. You’ve got talent
December 11, 2013 1:18 am|
Awwie!! I am speechless. Thanks Nischala 🙂
December 16, 2013 12:24 pm|
” I’d love to hold on to them, Memories, for they are memories of you !! ” 🙂
