All i needed.

All i needed.

A Story by Farhan Shaikh

All I needed was your attention, to hold your hand and walk through the college door.
I wanted your love but you gave it to a man luckier than I.


All I wanted was to look in your eyes and move closer to you, like you did yesterday with him. But all I got was your smile. I needed you to come towards me.
Did you ever hear my heartbeat ? It always races when I see you.

It was lovely to hear your voice, but terribly hard when you spoke to him. You didn't even wish me a goodbye.
All I needed were your words. I wanted your voice all to myself. He may never love you the way I do.
When I passed through by your window yesterday, all I wanted was for you to look out and wave at me.
All I needed was to be with you and make you my wife. I wanted to keep you in my arms until the end of time.

I wanted you to stay away from him. I tried to attract you towards me, but I was acting like someone I'm not. Every night killed me. I could not wait until morning to see you again in the hope that someday your footsteps would lead you to me rather than to him.
All I needed is that look of yours. That smile could've made my day.
You gave these to him. Maybe he loved you, but no one could love you as much as I did.
My friends told me to forget you, but moving on would be an insult to our love.

I wanted you and I to become us, but you never gave the chance.
All I needed was for you to be with me, and the day I heard you fighting with him, my jealousy turned to happiness.
The other day, I smiled at you and you smiled back. All I need is you to come to me. I saw your feet taking you towards me, and since then I haven't let you go.

Truly human and beautiful. All we want is to be acknowledged and loved. Sometimes that smile never gets returned, but when it does our souls soar. Thanks for the great story.

All I wanted to say is that you did it again out of love. Truly a man who could write stuff that are too cheesy never seems to be odd. Lol Keep writing these kinds of stories. Readers will be wanting it out from you surely.

Sincerely,

It means a lot... thankyou 😄
This is a precious writing in so many wats, Farhan!😊 To love someone, and watch someone love someone happy with someone else, kills! But to keep living that same unconditionally, with the deep faith ...Makes them come back to one that actually loved. That's the sweetest and most celebratable kind of victory I feel!😊

Thankyou for sharing this piece.

I felt like I was you, this other guy who hopped she/he wouldn't choose him/her.

Your words captured the strength of a heart sick young man in love. Good writing such as this brings back memories for so many of us when we have been in this position.
Your writing showed how our minds are captivated 24/7 with our desire for another person.
I enjoyed your story.

Isn't it some kind of one sided love... and hope it will become two sided... i found me in him, in past I was like this boy but I moved on and when he came back it was long gone time... i love his determination towards that girl...
