Love and pain, aestheticity and filters and the colours, black and white are so overrated that you forget about what lies in between - The Ordinary and it is the ordinary things that make the butterflies flutter and blood rushing; it is the ordinary that we hide within fancy words and kill the beauty with knives and pens. The world does not end on love and pain, there's numbness and there's peace there's relief and there's a million tiny emotions unsaid and unread
we are more than a song or a prose- we are Beethoven's tone deafness
we are more than pictures- we are memories trapped inside forgotten Polaroids.
we are more than just mistakes- we are ordinary and peculiar at the same time
Summer is just around the corner, and the sky beautifully holds together its serenity.
There's a crack in the blue sky, through which crimson light peeps at the city headed home as a few orange clouds escaped the crack and scatter around on the blueness.
A couple kites fly around as I stroll in my terrace and that is when my eyes land on two boys on their roof, a few houses down the lane as one of them holds onto the reel as the older one impresses him with his way around the string.
It reminded me of Amir and Hassan and I smiled at the sun as it set and bid adieu.
Once again I meet the sun when it is on the cusp of saying goodbye as I drive towards home, but the few moments that we have, we talk about The Great Gatsby and sun quoted “I wasn't actually in love, but I felt a sort of tender curiosity.” and how sun found it relatable and I stayed quiet instead of telling the sun that I find it relatable too.
On the drive home, I saw three kids on the green belt at the side of the road, one of them stood near the two, one of whom sits on top of the third kid and they all laughed as the third kid tried to free himself of his grip and weight.
I told the sun they are playing, but the sun said, 'Are they?' and left, as I drove home teary eyed listening to Hurt by Johnny Cash but all I could think of was Hassan being raped by Assef and Amir who stayed silent.
I took a turn from the nearest U-turn and went back to the green belt but when I reached the boys had left and the song had ended.
/emptiness is what I felt/

I'll write summer songs along my bones to carry her to a world where lyrics won't hurt but teach. I'll let her watch how buds bloom to make her feel growth isn't a journey to a haunted beach.
I'll sit by the buds cheering them, saying they are beautiful no matter what shape, size or colour may be. I'll let her know that men and women are two pillars of a civilization and that a castle won't last without any of them.
I'll let her know that beasts aren't the norm and they deserve to stay who treats them no wrong I'll let her know love isn't calculated it's a wine that lifts their soul and gets better as time passes by. For all that fades with time aren't true emotions but silly desires.
