Life has always been a tapestry of myriad abstractions. Sometime these abstractions makes your life worth living. Every frames of life has its own story, some escalate quickly and become part of our life while some becomes antithesis of our own thoughts over a period of time. Today’s night has its own story, part of it is subtle yet omnipresent.

I was at the birthday party of my friend enjoying gobbling and devouring all deliciously yummy food. A huge marble room where you see many faces and greet them but you still do not know any one of them (yes I was seeing my friend after five years) perhaps nibbling the favorite dish and seeing others people is the only thing that can ease your life there. So with nothing interesting to do I started to nibble one of my favorite dish so that I can get lost in its mesmerizing taste forgetting the world around me. I opened my eye to take another bite but was surprised to see that the same world around me seems to me, like a changed world now. There is an adage which goes like this” The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” Is this transition of my world is effect of this or vertigo of the beer that I had.

Interplay of opposites, Beautiful isn't it? Suddenly every things seems as if I have been transported to the land of gypsies! I see Flame of the candle light dancing with the tune of my heart beat, every emotions getting all livened up. The golden ribbon meandering in rhythm with the silent soft winds and some rose petals getting strewn from the decorated flower over the ground and yes with such a nice stage set how could you spare me. Your expression all getting livened up and animated and on the spur of moment I saw you standing over the jade candle stand dazzling in a purple frock suit. Those hazel eyes of your looks so ethereal to me. My sanctum sanctorum.  The impact of the splash of your smile has been created and now multiple concentric circle are developing deep within my heart, forming ripples and overpowering every existing will of mine, materializing me in such a way that if your silence is the question I want to spend my whole life answering it. And suddenly I’m back, getting a tap on my shoulder by my friend , again back to the table where I was seated. I guess I zoned out for a while, I told myself.

Party is over dude told my friends and where were you lost from last two hours he further added. I was brewed at 3 AM uptil now in someone else thought I told him. He just smiled at me and asked let me drop you home as it seems to me that you might be not able reach home with this kind of hangover. Perhaps he was right. Before bid adieu he gave me an envelope. I kept it in my pocket without bothering to read what was inside it, because I was too lost at my Ground Zero. Stirred heart was unafraid of shaking off the sleep. Relishing it, even. Drowning in the well of oblivion, fancying and sketching you gave me another nostalgic Vibe. Tonight I can walk thousand miles if I could just see you.

I’m spending another sleepless night for the things and person that will never become mine. My Time flow has been ceased because some talented script writer worded you as morning and sentenced me to night. Perhaps I’m not alone who has forget to move on when our world collided, even “time has to bend and slowdown in presence of gravity “, and your heart is a gravity, pulling me towards you. Helpless within my ambit, paranormally marching towards satisfactory self destruction but still waiting with a flicker hope of you finding me and imparting fractions of life in me, like a talented sculptor mending and completing me again. 

Before I loose myself completely, I needed to take my attention away from you. So I took out the envelope that my friend has given to me.But sometime you know Impending is Storm so was this choice of mine. Envelope had a note in it :-
The Heavier your eyelids, the sincerer your words are. Do share what you write today.
