My Love Never Dies.......

Almost all people might have loved someone in their life..To say something about my love..
I have experienced it three times..but still I dont know exactly what this love thig is
..it made me laugh and cry at the same time...still i am in search of love..
its such a feeling inside us for someone..makes us feel alive..and we get crazy about it..
how that happens is beyond my thinking..it just happens..
I had felled into love with three..but that was incomplete..does that make any sense??he he
of course yes..its always valuable and such an ever memorable feeling to me..
My love is true..always..

I still remember those school days..I didnt get to know that I was in love with someone..
those four years she was with me..After I left my school I got to know how much I miss
her in my life..I believe she would have felt the same what I did..But dont know what to say..
sense of responsibility to my family or something else pushed me back to concentrate
in my studies more..and that relationship stopped when I left my 10th std and joined
plus2..slowly I started trying to forget her..after few days I met another girl..
This time I couldnt stop myself from not loving that girl..I started thinking a lot
about her..what a crap!!I started dreaming too..but , she was not thinking like I did..
hell it took me into a helpless situation..but I recovered from it very soon..
she was not meant to be mine..

And the third one..this time ,I was more carefull and had a clear idea about my wish..
she was so close..and I was very comfortable with her..she enjoyed my friendship..
but she was not in love with me..I dont know what went wrong this time..
she was mistaken or me??I didnt force her or anyone..
coz I believe ,every one has the right to choose someone whom they want to love..
we should not compromise in case of love..it has to happen inside us..otherwise no use..
now I am not feeling to love anyone..just because it cant be made..
hopefully everything will come out to be fine..
and one day i will get my real love ..yes ..I am waiting for that..:)
