THE BIRDS OF TWILIGHT

"I missed you so much", he said as they hugged each other so tight as if it was the last time they were doing this. Whereas the truth was that they were meeting each other after a long time. They didn't leave each other till the time all the love they had missed in all these months blended within both of them.

Because they lived in different cities, they got to meet only once in few months. The time between these months would be very difficult for them. They would keep thinking about the last encounter they had and that would keep a faint smile in their hearts, and a part of them hoped that they get to meet soon. It wasn't very tough also because they were busy in their lives and they kept in touch through phone, but still the joy of holding each other and looking into each other's eyes couldn't be matched.

"I didn't miss you", she said sarcastically, "Stupid", releasing herself from him. "Why did you call me at this particular plac…

FIRST LOVE

It was what a Heaven must be.
But why did my dad have to wake me up from the heaven I was in.

Anyway, he didn't know that I was having a dream which I would like to have everyday for the rest of my life. Though I couldn't have her, but still I could have lived with that dream forever. It was bliss while I was sleeping but after I woke up, it was nothing but a thorn of pain. I forgot it after a couple of hours but it occupied my mind big time during those two hours.

That's how it happens. Initially, she used to come in my dreams almost every night and give me the time which I didn't get from her during the day. But then as the truth kept getting clearer and time passed, the frequency lowered gradually. From every night, it declined to once in every 3-4 days, then weekly and finally around once in a month. Since then, she comes to see me only once in months but that single dream is enough to bring back all the memories and lift me from the present to the past.

There was a t…

IS IT YOU?

Lonely in the late night
Treading the only road I know
Contemplating the day gone by
Thoughts heavy cross my mind

Defeated by myself
I walk on confused
My outside in perfect contrast
To the tumult raging inside

Lost, I didnt notice
That a cold encompasses me
Its the wind that starts blowing
And leaves rustle showing gratitude

My heartbeat slows down
A void starts filling me
Dissolving away my thoughts
And untangling every knot

Clearing my path of these leaves sallow
The memories bleeding that lay in my path
Nudging me to smile again
Is it the wind?
Or is it you?

Echoing promises of taking me away
From this world of sorrow and deceit
To a realm of sweet tranquility
Is it the wind?
Or is it you?

Been in this darkness for long
Day I desire not
One star light will blind
Drifting from my eyes these clouds black
Is it the wind?
Or is it you?

Its still yesterday
Waiting for today to come
But it seems too far away
Past is my life
Past has my life

Today is all I want
A life is all I want
Holding my hand
And walking me into today
And …

PENCIL , PAPER AND ERASER

After pondering over it for a long time, he decided that he would let go of her. He looked around for a pencil, paper and an eraser. Though it took him some time as he hardly kept his things arranged, but he managed to find them. He then sat down and took the pencil in his hand and gazed at it.

Her face was all that was before his eyes. The way she used to smile, he could give up everything just to see that crescent once more. Each time she used to smile, a wave of invincibility swept him. And her eyes, their depth never he could make out, but then assumed that were as deep as his life.

He wrote down her name on the paper, the letters which meant the world to him and then stared at them. After a considerable amount of time had passed, he picked up the eraser and erased the letters which he had just written.

This was his way of letting go of her. He sincerely thought each time he erased her name, he would let go of her bit by bit and erase gradually every corner in his life which she had…
