Love: Short Term

Now she knew what Love is. Three months ago, silent voices of frustration echoed in her mind. The search for a permanent solution from past many years was still on. Long walks under the moon light continued giving her courage. But till when she should depend upon patience?

A hope that things will be alright, she focused on herself. Her professional life was more of a burden but her hobbies made that easy. Strength training early in the morning, writing blog and evening walks. A schedule she maintained and followed along with the three activities which were her life.

Heartily she had been confiding all her feelings to the celestial body since the day she understood her parents were managing their relationship somehow. Considered Moon to be her only friend, she shared all her problems and together they would find the solution. Her girlfriends were equal to nothing when she found out that they were jealous of her and gave her advices which complicated her life. Why? She never asked and got herself free by cutting them off from her life.

The desperation overpowering her controlled emotions was igniting frustration. Desire of being physically attached bloomed when she saw a charming guy staring at her. There were 11 people in the café that day including the three waiters and the accountant. Sitting at the left corner table diagonal to hers, he signalled by his hand to ask for if he could join her. She innocently agreed with a nod and the conversation started. His blue eyes took away her heart but her mind poked to wait as she was aware of the current scenario and her observation power was good.

Two three meetings converted to satisfaction of physical needs, which she was desperately waiting for. He made her feel comfortable, a warmth she felt and his way of treating her made her to assume he loved her which she wanted but he was not the right guy. Two months of togetherness came to an end when he rejected to meet her every time she asked him. She then dropped the idea of meeting him ever and straightened her spine to focus on priorities.

Coffee in hand, after a month at the same café, she thought about her seriousness towards the guy and the web of love one romantically weaves. Her long walk after coffee, she discussed the same with the Moon and concluded that one can find Love for short periods as well. Lying in bed she wondered how many hearts he must have won.

This is Novembers FURIOUS FICTION story which I wrote. Not the best of what I wanted to write. Its just I don’t know what. I did not like the story this time. I guess its part of the process of learning.

Empty Inside Out

I am feeling a lot weird
either I dont know me
obviously I dont know the world
its so empty inside and out
no one I blame
but I never understood the crowd

moving out just to meet the mass
all I like is the green grass
walking barefoot on empty side walk
I feel to watch more and no talk
a question of my weirdness
is positively raised
to me cafes and restaurants are no praise
for they let you sit till they earn
suffocated I wish time to run

Am I wrong to want to look for that one art work?
similar in fashion to my dream world?
because I am a complacent being
self praising and for self living
dejected I might make you feel
but is it you or is it me?

Busy Admiring Flower Pots

Lazily I step
Out the door
Leaving the comfort
Of the home

To find a Café
Which feels my own
Welcoming and comfortable
Happy to be alone

When someone arrives
With no similar vibes
Disturbs my thoughts
Admiring the flower pots

Books are seductive
Colourful and attractive
Your presence won’t count
When books more productive

Boring are the talks
Find love in silent walks
A book in hand would be good
‘No, I am not much into food’

Coffee or Tea
My favourite treat
Watching people around
Forming new stories
