Tracing little infinities on each other’s bare backs, we were lazing around on a rather tranquil day. Breaking the stillness of the air, rang the phone kept aside. He took the call and his face shone like a billion suns. The Army beckons. My man’s dream, and the thought of him leaving,my nightmare. Being together for close to 2 years, he still leaves me in awe of him. So strong,yet so gentle. So polite,yet so stubborn. So perfect,and yet so perfect. In all of his ways.

My journey of coming to terms with his passion of serving the nation ranged from denial,to pleading and finally to accepting. My mind started swimming with a swarm of questions. Can we stand the test of time? Do we love each other enough to tide over this exhausting lifetime? Can we make it? The what ifs danced around merrily and made my heart skip several beats. What if something happens to him? What if the spark dies and we cannot put together what he will leave now? But the taste of promises of never letting go still lingered on my lips. A sea of emotions washed over me and threatened to spill.

Stay. Please.

He nudged me back to reality. One look at his beaming face and our hands entwined together, and I knew. I knew the doubts stood meaningless. I’d wait and hope till the end of time. I hugged him with all my might and whispered,” Go touch the skies,my love. I’ve never been happier.” And I meant it. God knows I do.




Daily Prompt: Echo

There are just some little moments in your life which take you by surprise. Blow a breath of fresh air,take you up by storm or induce a calm so serene,you never even wish a whisper to muddle it. And when this moment comes out of nowhere,in the midst of dusty lands,in the middle of a crowded street,besides the kitchen top,laughing at a silly joke just by looking at this one person,know that you’re lucky.

Looking at this one person ignites and rages a fire so intense inside you,that you experience the collision of galaxies but also hear the calmness of a river flowing besides you in a no-man’s land at the same time. That person makes you want to dream,fly,color,imagine and let loose all inhibitions that bind you down. It is something rare and inestimable. And when you find this feeling,and you find this person,you reach out and hold it in both your hands and make a wish to let it help you soar above forever. Perhaps all the sparkles and glitters and magic were meant to be.

Everything about them leaves you in awe. The tiny dance their eyebrows do,the sparkle in their eye when they talk of something they love,the frown that rests upon their brow when things don’t go their way and the blissful peal of laughter that illuminates their face more than the sun. It’s all you ever want. To build and to grow with this person,to forget where they start and where you end,for them to light up your night sky with their shine and to cherish them for as long as you shall live.

Legends tell us,that Zeus made all humans have 4 arms,4 legs and a double torso. But seemingly made too powerful,he decided to rip them apart and now all our lives,we wish to search for this other half of ours. Is that true? If somebody comes to your mind when you read this,it perhaps is.

An when you do find a love this pure,the earth resonates and echoes it with all it’s might and turns it into a song that is left for generations to hear and cherish.

“And look what happens with a love like that. It lights up the whole sky.”
