All through the night.

​In the dark of the night,

There was a dim source of light.

When up and down she scrolled,
Messages from the past rolled.
The fingers ached from the scrolling,
Her heart did too, there was no stopping.

With every scroll, came a promise,
With every scroll, popped up a heart,
Red yellow blue or green
Her big brown eyes now had a sheen.

The aching fingers scrolled all through the night
Till the sun showed up that morning, bright.

      1. Come on. Who is saying that a single heart is not a broken one? No Tinder matches- That’s heart breaking itself. 😜

        But, but how are you doing? All okay? 🤔

        That’s nice. So, no longer a broken heart which is good.
        Oh, come on. How’s your thumb? Still hurting? 😜


      3. Bahhhhh! IMAGINATION, I swear. 😂 No longer a broken heart, was never a broken heart 😂 and the thumb? Hurts. Thanks to scrolling through the ‘newsfeed’ like you scrolled through your tinder 😝

      4. It’s okay to get your heart broken. And this sounds like an experience than “imagination”. Good that it is no longer a broken heart. I’m not going to believe the second part though. 😜
        Yeah, I believe you. Why do you still have his messages? 😜

        Sigh, it is such a far fetched dream. 😜 If only.

        Oh , your highness. I shall sincerely follow your instructions and delete ‘his’ messages. I don’t know where the messages are, but I will find them and delete them.
        The nation needs mooooore of the oh so empathetic people like you.

        Oh, that great. Good that you are moving on and forgetting what’s making your thumb hurt. 😜
        That’s so kind of you to say. I urge people to be more like me. Thank you.

    Romantic cheesy messages, how many times have I dreamt of those.
    You are probably the ‘Mom’ kinds.

    Thaaankyou mommy for helping me solve the mystery of the missing messages.

  2. There’s a lot you don’t know about me, I guess. 😜 And yes, please spread the message, if Tinder doesn’t work out, at least the people you are spreading it to will respond back.

    They were there, on your phone. There’s no denying that. 🙄🙄

    I know why you didn’t find them. You didn’t want to delete them. I understand. It’s hard to let go off things. But you’ll be alright. Now that I have deleted, I mean copied.

    Momzone! I have reached next level, I guess. 😐 I could have used those cheesy lines back at you, but sigh. 😔

    *feels glad that you still didn’t delete the post* ofcourse, how could you? The pain, the memories, are hard to let go, aren’t they?

    You are right. How?Just how can I delete the post, the memories are there hanging on to every cell, for dear life!
    *Dramatic sigh*

      2. I am? Huh, *checks for my sword in my sword pocket* Empty.

        That’s a cute nick name you gave him. Sweet. No pun intended. 😛

        Thank you, thank you. I will. It is, isn’t it?
        But ofcourse, for you it is only after your sweet chocolate pudding. 😛

        P.S. Correct me if I am wrong. You are somehow trying to end this (reply-to-each-other) conversation, and I am not letting it. Did I get it right? -_-

        I think I know how I raised you. Are you talking back to your mom? :O 😛
        Somehow, you made me twice your (or my) age. 😥

        Sure? I will take your word for it. 😀

      4. You are already heart-broken. Won’t ground you, just as yet. Will give you time to recover and then ground you. 😛 *evil laugh*

        We are almost the same age. -_-

        Ok, great. 😀

    1. In tangled it’s a witch. I apparently am not. And wait, isn’t this Eugene the same one who broke your heart once and you hurt your thumb? Why go back to him? 😳

      P.S. You are replying to the comment but not in the thread, and hence I am not getting the notifications. I have to come back here to check whether you replied or not. 😐 Hence the long delays in replies.

        *dramatic inhaling*

        And and and ,isn’t it always like that? You get your heart broken; fix it after multiple attempts and go right back to the very same and give it to him to watch him break it yet again 😛 😂

      2. Sigh, this thing called love. *shakes head in disagreement*.

        Is that how it works? Seriously? What I know ( from observation, i.e., never had the pleasure of being in love, so ) is that when one gets their heart broken, for certain reason, they learn from it, and make a decision with benefits them and not hurts them. It’s like they say, “A mistake would be to not learn from one”.

        Too philosophical !? 😛
