Some days I drown My heart stops beating. My breath becomes shallow And I drown. They say Breathe. It’s going to be okay. The monsters don’t control you. The monsters do not control me. I do. I hold my breath for one,
Three minutes. My eyes roll into the back of my head. And I feel free. Finally. But no. My traitorous body betrays me. I have to breathe,
Again. My mind tells me, “Let go.” “Let it all go.” My heart tells me, “Leave” “Go, before they choke you.” But before I can, I hear something. A voice. It tells me, “No.” As if I’m being lifted out of the water, I let the sound waves guide me. I am no longer broken. I am floating. I won’t let go. I won’t leave. For the sound waves that reached me Belongs to your heart's sea. ~rimi
//Ajeeb dasta hai ye Kaha shuru kaha khatam Ye manzile hai kaun si Na wo samajh sake na hum//
The clock struck midnight As the radio dialled down To static. With my baba humming To the song In his old dusty chair, In the verandah. I was listening , anonymously From the terrace top, Where no one went anymore. Only I shared silence with moon, Beneath the sombre veil... And I could suddenly feel The last notes of the song still lingering in the air, The lyrics took me back to a place I was quite familiar with. The pictures of the two strangers Dancing to the same song As if the night was theirs And the moon, Sang sonnets for them Those star-crossed lovers looked like characters from an old movie. And played their part too. They didn’t speak. Didn’t stop. And never broke away from each other’s gaze. It was a mesmerising sight to behold. Surprisingly I was the only one watching. No one seemed to be interested in the beautifully retro couple. To this day, I still wonder If they were just two strangers
Or time and love, Dancing to the sound of the universe. ~rimi #temp **Can't write anymore ** #enso maybe?
