A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Catch 22

To be verbose.

And be quite drowned

Flailing as the words consume.

But if I did not,

The silence would suffocate

The love we have.

 

So, I dare not.

 

To reach out, dying to hold

Your hand, and tell you things

That would so heal us both.

But if I did, and you turned away

It would do me in, and therefore us.

Rent, quite rent, the fabric of a cherished togetherness.

 

I dare not.

 

To read each word you never write

In the pages I’ve collected in the memories

We’ve gifted each other. Hoping to see it for real.

And if you did write, and I read the pain you shared…

Would it not quite be my undoing?

 

Don’t, please. Or should I say, please?

 

The twain might never meet.

Or meet it might, in vain.

Till it does, I’ll yearn.

And once it does, I’ll dissemble.

 

Catch 22.

Love Looks Like This – III

78363_125773190818257_3630059_o

The grace of golden years
They wear it well 🙂

They’re the first expression of Love
The first feeling shown, lent, given,
For they are the first faces …
An umbrella, as it were
Sheltering, nurturing, sharing

Caring. Always.

Love. Daddy and Mummy ❤

Love looks like this – II

Tee hee… yes, sometimes it’s like this! Like episodes of a long running series, this day is going to cascade with some spectacular short-cuts as this one, as I race to Day 29, from this one, Day#16 🙂

Love – a four letter universe of
The intangible, the goosebumpy
The ticklish giggles
Slurrpy kissheys and hugs
A pops, moms, and
A wee wee universe too!

Love. Like nothing else 🙂

Love. Sigh. You’re looking at it!

My Arien, his Scorpio partner, and another Arien babe 🙂 Unbeatable, I tell you!

So this is Day#16, of Ramblings in February! 😛

Love looks like this – Part 1

You know the face of love.
It’s in the faces of those you love.
When they look with love, in they eyes
And their laughter is tinged and coloured with it!

Stay blessed my dearest Lion, and your lovely partner in life and love!

an

Neeti and Ashwin may you always laugh and love each other with the same wonder!

Chapter ONE (LINK)

Chapter TWO (LINK)

This is the last of the three. 🙂

********************************************************

This one is for Day#14 of #RamblingsInFebruary 🙂 Valentine’s day 🙂 So of course…!

Let’s go back to that Teaser (LINK) , and a story that burgeoned 🙂

Disclaimer: This blog is pure nonsense. All characters in this write are made up in part, and actual in part. Which is to say, don’t take them seriously. Take the notion of Love seriously though. 😀

The eavesdropper was intrigued. Yes, I’ve said that. So she (why not he? Who’s telling the so called story here, please? 😛 ) She, being she, who was privy to many a story shared by all manner of people, constantly surprised that they’d found something in her that called to their trust, decided to sniff around.

Turned out it wasn’t one of those puppy love tiffs she’d imagined. Oh, she was quite imaginative! You see, as I hear it, he had heard things about her -it doesn’t take a degree in rocket science to figure that out! (though having a degree in rocket science might sometimes get you to miss out on the obvious 😛 ) He’d heard she was being over friendly with a someone who he knew, deep inside, to be anything but chivalrous, though that guy pretended to be one! And he was MAD. They were best friends. Don’t smirk, please. There does exist a variety of people like that you know! And yes, to add to your fantasy, she was lovely, and he was quite a looker 😀 Cliche? Ah!

That’s Mishika, we’re talking about by the way. And he? Let’s guess, shall we? (Mishika is from here – Serendipity click on that to find out 😛 )

Mishika that day got words from him when he shared his angst at what he perceived to be irresponsible behaviour. She in turn was MAD because he did not trust her. There we have it, them trust issues. I mean, she thought, there wasn’t even a reason to even listen to someone say they were disappointed in you! Boo! She’d never cared about it, but when he said it, something hurt, and angered her. But looking at him, she knew it wasn’t jealousy but genuine concern!

Boys talk, Mishika!

Yeah yeah yeah. They’re worse gossips than those girls, and than women and women are labelled so! I refuse to be responsible for talk like that!

But remember that ride into the sunset, and things to do?

I, dear person, have not, and you haven’t either. What you have forgotten is who I am. To you. Have you, indeed? Sarcastically, this.

Aaarrrghhhh! Literally and poetically it is that time. And on this beach, sitting on these sands, I want to wax poetic too! I am, aren’t I? I don’t know how to handle talk, M. It’s as simple as that!

I have stories to write. To share. To learn from. People to meet. Who I shall, no matter what. I also cannot stand not being known and believed, most especially, by someone who I’ve always talked to. I’m now wondering what I am to you!

Gawd! Please don’t mouth the Hum Aapke Hain Kaun dialogue! Not that one! He cringed. Laughed comically. Giggled. 

She joined him. Then cocked her head, and asked anyway…

Hum Aapke hain kaun? Giggling. 

He put an arm around her, tucked her head into his shoulder, as both of hers wound around his waist, still giggling. I love that movie you know!

I do. It’s something I like too. Acquired taste from the company I keep. We belong together in ways I have only read about in poetry and ballads. 

Remember though that those ballads most often ended in tragedy! A tickle at his ribs.

Even so, Happy Valentine’s Day, darling!

Darling! Daaarling!!! Oooooh! Now we’re talking! Happy day to you too!

Quite indifferent to the gaze of other evening time visitors to the beach, these two sat companionably, and did not notice a bittersweet look sent their way from a distance. Raksh wondered how on Earth the storyline that should have been his, became that Nerd’s!

28 February, for Day 14 of Ramblings in February. 15 posts to go by tomorrow evening. Let’s see if this blog can manage that kind of flooding 😀
