A rainbow too far

February 17, 2010 Leave a comment

As soon as she stepped out of what she thought was paradise

She found a new life or rather a new meaning to his existing life

A feeling so strange she had never experienced before

Difficult it was for her to understand whether what she found made her happy

Or was it the sudden loss of what she thought was happiness for her

She moved ahead with her undecided mind as the only companion

Strong she was not to look back and smiled all the way ahead in search of the undefined

Thoughts that tried to pull her, intoxicated her with a strong sense of satisfaction

Overpowering the pull-back and empowering her to move to the next step

Flaunting ignorance as her only jewel and her innocent smile the only garb

Away she walked from the crossroads in search of a rainbow

Tears she thought were raindrops

Drenched in sorrow and enjoying the downpour with a smile

Tapping her feet to the tunes of the thunderstorm

Brave she was to climb the hill, or so she thought

The view from top was enchanting or the visible distance painful

She couldn’t tell

But her tears bled to the heart

Love, Coffee & Confusion

January 12, 2010 Leave a comment

I stood on the crowded pavement when she held my hand from behind.

Extremely delighted something inside my head flashed “you got her dude ”

“How long have you been here?” she asked

For ages said my mind but my tongue had a mind of its own “Ya, not long!” it said.

“So you changed your mind” the subconscious portion of my mind took over and asked

“There’s something called a coffee shop!” she reminded

“Oh yes!” I said as if I had forgotten

‘CCD’ are the three words that have mushroomed across the country. Maybe Indians now have a much better appetite for coffee

Truly expecting a lot to happen over coffee we went in.

“Cappuccino?” she asked. Oh I love cappuccino and couldn’t resist saying “yes”.

“So” we both said together; We were at equal excitement level it seemed.

And then waited for almost 36 seconds for each other to speak the next word.

On the 37th second I finally spoke ” So you changed your mind. Finally!”

“Well, I thought about it and decided that you are not that bad either” she said

Why can’t girls talk simple in complicated situations in particular? I thought

I couldn’t convince myself to take it as a compliment and stared at her for an explanation

She smiled and said ” Two cappuccinos, please”. Oh the waiter. I realized

“Does that mean yes?” I asked. I prefer keeping things simple in all situations

“Well not really. I am a little confused. Give me some time” she confused me again

“We can be good friends. We’ll get to know each other better” she added

I couldn’t decide whether to be delighted by the fact that she is still interested or get disappointed because she did not accept my proposal

I wonder why CCD guys design a heart on every cappuccinos. And why the hell the heart in my cup seemed incomplete!

I poured two sachets of sugar on the heart and dissolved the heart and the sugar both

“Sure we can be friends and you can take you own sweet time” I assured

Nah! This is not my story. Well sort of.
