I had pushed him away many times,
screamed ‘I don’t feel anything so just leave’
until tears fall from those hopeful eyes.
But his response was always the same –
“I love you. And I refuse to believe that you are this empty shell incapable of emotions. Because I know that you are in there somewhere, bursting of love and longing. And I won’t give up. Until the day you open up yourself again, I will stay.”
