Beneath the Barricades

fictional diary/story of a girl who is mortified by her own existence.


6. Forgotten

It's been 6 whole months since i've seen you around,

Why would you leave when

You promised you'd stay?

I trusted you..

You know that i did.

We talked for hours and hours every single night -

Till we were up in the morning,

It never felt so right!

I remember every detail about you.

How could i forget?

The way your perfect dark brown curls fell smoothly upon your shoulder;

Or the way that your perfume-scent stayed upon my clothes when we hugged?

I could never forget, especially,

Those beautiful grey eyes of yours.

Or those very last words you spoke to me over the phone:

I love you, and I can't wait to be with you, forever. Have a good sleep,

And I'll be over in the morning to make you some tea when you get up! 

Okay babydoll? Goodnight!

And when your high-pitched laugh sounded over the phone and rung through my head

Until you called me again.

It was love.

Not us,

Not together,

Not being with you -

But it was you.

You were love.

You are love.

If you could ever give me a chance to make it up to you,

To hold you in my arms one more time,

To hold your hand when you're sick,

To bake you those cookies i promised two years ago,

To let you pick what we watch before retiring to bed,

To brew you some coffee before you wake up,

To kiss you goodnight,

To read you your favorite book because you're too tired,


To restore your faith in me,

Because you're all i have, and without you i am nothing.

I would do anything to make you love me, again.

I have loved you ever since that day in the coffee shop.

Iced or Hot?



Hey, could I get a straw?

Sure thing, here.

And here's your Iced caramel macchiato, madam.

Oops! I'm sorry, here, let me help you!

I wiped the spilled coffee from your blazer and looked in your eyes as i apologised as what had to have  been 47 times exactly, before you handed me your number written on a Starbucks napkin.

I still have that napkin today.
