    Hey Shruti!

    I absolutely love this poem! Great word choice and the layout adds to the beauty even more.

    "And you 'lent' me
    the shade in which
    blue was
    the darkest."
    ^^
    Love those lines!

    Excellent write :)

    What a fantastically woven piece.. I think we have all been there in a love that wasn't meant to be, didn't last long or was one sided at least once in our lives and if W haven't then unfortunately, we will be. Glad its nominated.

      Oh wow...! I can't believe it.
      And you're right...I guess almost everyone can relate. Thank you for your comment and reading it! :)

    Caught a typo, pallet -> should be palette.

    Mind if I make a suggestion?

    "I asked you for a share of
    your turquoise
    to add in my pallet,
    you know?
    And you 'lent' me
    the shade in which
    blue was
    the darkest."

    I think you should reword it to "And you 'lent' me/the darkest shade/of blue", just as effective, less words and flows better, in my opinion. Up to you though!

    I nominated this poem earlier in the week because it resonated with me. :)

      Thank you for pointing that out! ^-^
      And I agree with your suggestion. Thank you for that too. :)
      But umm...won't it mean that the person lent me a dark blue instead of turquoise...?
      I actually meant that since turquoise is a mixture of green and blue, so, the person lent me the shade in which the amount of blue was more than green...the darkest...

      Ah...I need to improve my english...
      Thank you for the nomination.
      :)

    I just saw your reply, if that's what you were going for then, then what you had earlier works! You can also try saying 'darkest shade of cyan'? Either works, and your English is fine!

      I guess I will go with turquoise lol; it holds a memory for me.
      But am grateful for the suggestion, because am definately going to write a poem on `cyan` next. :)
      I love cyan.!

    This was awesome in the way that so many different meanings can be taken from it. I adored the imagery. Very well done!

    This is such a fantastic write!!!!

    I think that anyone with a heart can identify with this, from the first line the reader is completely drawn in and EVERY line just pulls you deeper into the emotion of it, kind of like Alice and the looking glass.

    I really like your word choice and structure and how you've used your punctuation to control the reader.

    Can't say enough about this write. saved to favourites off the bat and if I could have nominated it I would have.

    All the best
