My picture used to be his wallpaper.
I used to laugh at him because for me it was his foolishness and we were good friends so I always kept on asking him why does he keep my picture on his wallpaper.
He used to tell me “I wish you understood.
I wish you understood why I have kept it..”
I used to make fun of him. We all friends used to make fun of him.
It has been 8 years since then.
8 years since he has moved away.
8 years since I have moved on with my life.
I am really very happy in my life you know,
I have my dream job, my dream house, my dream cars, my pets. Everything I had ever wished for in my life.
He is on my wallpaper now.

Some understandings dawn too late. A short story with a string impact. Brilliantly written, Moni.
Wish the things that must be said and understood didn’t take 8 years to get through. Nicely written and expressed!
Vidhya Thakkar says

Kaveri Chhetri says
It is very difficult to express so much in so few words… calls for a whole lot of creativity n hats off to you. Although I have to admit that I had to read it twice to understand… but it could be cuz I didn’t know it was a kind of a nano story.
Sonia dogra says
That’s an interesting nano tale with a loud message. Treasure people when they are around.
Madhu Bindra says
I love the way you write. There is so much depth in what you have written. By the time people realize the importance of a person, it is too late.
Nikita Jhanglani says
Short, sweet, and oh so poignant! In a few words, you’ve said something so big and significant, and that last line just hits at the heart. It’s beautiful 🙂
Ritu Bindra says

You have proven that love doesn’t need long verses but it can be expressed simple words
Sindhu Vinod Narayan says
This made me kind of emotional. I love the writing style depicted here. Well written
Heartfelt note Moni. It is sad but true – we understand many things in life a tad too late.
Short & meaningful story. Life moves on for everyone, but still something is missing,
Loved reading the post.
Jhilmil D Saha says
Deep emotions, expressed subtly. We realize a lot of things much later in life.
Pooja Jha says
It was short yet clear, one can understand What has happened and is happening by just reading these few crisp lines with the pointers being straight. Loved this
Abha Singh says
Heartfelt post. Sometimes it’s too late when we actually understand it.
Bhawna Shah says
The words are very heart-touching. This explains the true relationship of two friends. The connection between the two has made you succeed in the life. In short, this story has showed us a deep and a true friendship.
Kashish Mahtani says
I loved this piece! It’s cute in a haunting way and leaves one with goosebumps.
Raghav Dudeja says
The road not taken v2.0, if I may.
Aurora M says
Awww. A cute and interesting one. That’s all we say…life
Rahul Prabhakar says
If he is still on your wallpaper, it means that you still haven’t gotten over him. People come and go all the time, leaving their footprints and making their memories last. I think if you’re doing well, move on. It will help you heal faster!
Life goes on. He on your wallpaper. Such a practical approach. Loved the way you have described the emotions.
Hansa Kajaria says
In such few lines, so many emotions and thoughts have been conveyed. At times we don’t know what we want until we don’t have it any longer.
oh what a hard-hitting poem!!! loved it!!!
Noor Anand Chawla says
You have managed to convey a lot in very little! Amazing!
