A feather in a diary old Long ago i had to enfold. The emotions I couldn't hold. It was lying under a tree You picked it up and gave it to me. "If I am forever gone, then it will help you to move on". Destiny slapped me hard. You were laid to rest in a graveyard. I was torn apart. Then that feather came flying to me from nowhere. It gave me goosebumps and scare. So I hid it in a diary and left it there. After few autumns when some pain left like withering leaves. And my body accumulated some warmth to withhold winters. I felt as if you touched me softly. I couldn't control and ran abruptly With trembling hands I held the same diary I looked at the feather A sudden change in weather Thunder struck my heart. With teary eyes I relived again our story. As I touched my face with it. It felt as if you gave a kiss. Now I write about you to fill my heart that was once stark. Love letters..... And that feather is my bookmark.
Until I don't count the stars in the sky so deep. I think I won't be able to sleep. But then how would I be able to dream. Dreams that make my closed eyes gleam. Maybe I get a nightmare. So I plan to stay awake and at the night sky I stare. Countless stars shining so bright. Trying to outshine the moon's light. The moon is aware of it's deadly charm. Even if all stars combined, there will be no harm. While lying comfortably on the ceiling. I am getting goosebumps, and some weird tingling feeling. The sky is so beautiful, vast and deep. Millions of secrets inside it keeps. Maybe it resembles our mind. It has no end and so much to find. Stars are so many, it's impossible to count them. It's easier to catch the imaginations in my mind and write a poem. How the thoughts change into words is kind of a mystery. But they do look beautiful in the form of poetry.
The winds at the sea Dancing with such a grace. The seagulls are flying with a slower pace. There is chaos around But not much of noise. The sand grains grooving at the pace of tortoise. The distant waters are making some sound. The atmosphere carries some sort of haze. I think the waves and the shore are going to embrace.
Note - patience and timeneeded in order to fall in love with this post.
I asked her out for a date. The spot was a cafe near India gate. She arrived early I arrived late. In anger she ordered food and ate. She left the table all messy with a note "I hate people who don't value time. To me it's as serious as a crime. Take heed of my note Don't contact me or I will skin you like a goat." As if this was not enough. Rs. 3000 I had to cough. Cos she ate and got packed some more food stuff. I was sad Just stared at the phone But then I saw a girl sitting all alone. She seemed sad too and was sitting with a tilted head. I thought why not talk to her instead. I went close to her and said hi She looked up at me with a heavy sigh. "You men all are the same. What a shame." She was furious. But I got curious. Stubborn you know I go against the flow. I sat on the chair... "Look that's not fair. I know you had issues with some guy. But why blame others, why?? See I am a decent fellow. I saw you sad, so came up to say hello. It's not guys, maybe the castles you built up in the skies. In a relationship you have to act mature. Right guy you are choosing, just make it sure." She responded... "Easier said then done. Guys take relationships like fun. No good guy I have found, not even one." "Lady I can understand. Give me your hand. I want to see your lines. Let's see which one shines." Reluctantly she shows me her hand. "Wow the next guy you meet will be your husband. I guess that next is now. Consider me somehow." She smiled and said "You are a gone case. But you are cute and I love the dimples on your face. I am hungry, buy me some food. Who knows that will change my mood." It was in a way like a dinner date. After few months we were eating in the same plate.
I chewed moments of anxiety Gulped down bitter liquid of restlessness. Did not noticed the change in the world around. Eyes just froze in one direction. The direction towards which you left. You could have atleast said goodbye. But you did not even turned back. Maybe you were afraid Maybe it was never love.....
