Flowers for the dead - Part 1

The blazing sun couldn't reach beyond the glass window panes of the moving metro train. Standing near the door with earphones plugged in Samhitha looked ahead skimming through the crowd, which has been her routine now. Looking at the crowd and constructing a story, with soaring imaginations just like a teenager, became her favorite pastime.
The journey in the metro wasn't long one, and it helped her mind to flex a bit by keeping personal and professional thoughts aside. While her professional life was... Well, a typical job supporting her finances, and her life was chaotic, that's what she thought. All the dreams and hope, expectation were drowned in the run for life. Her story was just another random story which you'll run into and which doesn't make you sympathize or empathize. One would just say that's how life is! Yeah!
Most problems in life will not be something big or critical, just another problem. Just another ordinary life.

Moonless Night

Walking on the rain-soaked road, the steps felt long and heavy. It was just another day returning from work, but it was not usual. I never felt it coming. The temporary job I was working on came to an end, very early, before the date we had fixed upon. The long walk home seems draining my energy and my mind feels too numb. What next? I hear the questions coming from every known and the unknown person.
What next?
I look above, the stars blink down as the darkness descend.


Wind howling into the night sending shivers down the spine. Cold and eerie the damp room frightened him, as he walked around trying not to disturb the silence of the night.
A sob escaped from the huddled figure on the floor.
'Hey, are you alright? Get up', he lent his hand.
'He is no more..', she sobbed pointing to the man on the bed.

Leaves rustled near the window, whispering among themselves. While coldness of night crept …

I didn't get it.... So sad

He : I did not get a well done.

She : Me neither..

He : But I used to get before, so why not now??

She : Same here. Why is it hard to get a well done. I was working on it for long!

He : Well.. I am better than you. Isn't it? *he asks me*

Me *I look at her* : Of course you are!

He : But why I'm not praised? no encouragement!! 

She *had been sulking* : Even I'm good, *looks at me and says* : You are always on his side!! 

Me *laughs* : Well.. you both try hard.. fine??

Both : Yes!! Next time!!

And folks, the he and she, who were sad are my Father and Mother!! And they were talking about 'Carrom pool game'!!

It is a game played online by my parents, in which,  'well done' text is displayed when you play well and win the game against computer. :)

My Parents, I tell you!! :D :D :D

Unsent Letter

Dear S,

I know you'll flinch reading the 'S' in the first line, but sorry I can't help it. I don't want to address you with your name. I have always asked you what I am to you and I never got a clear response from you but instead received more questions from you! Seriously dude!! Your questions made me introspect myself, our relationship and also about you. Really..What I am to you?

We aren't acquaintances or lovers, you are in love with your girl friend and she with you. 
We aren't friends anymore, we were friends until we stepped beyond the boundaries of friendship, even if it was just one step! You know what was going on in my mind, you said me to think practically, well actually I did a lot of thinking and well it was just thinking..over thinking which led me astray.

And then came a day I thought of staying away as a first step to.. to whatever it was, but you wanted to talk , I didn't mind until I knew it was about your love.
What actually were you thin…

You are

You are the warmth my winter heart yearns for
the song my feet craves to dance about,
You are the madness and hopelessness that I fall for!
but again you are the reality that I can never make it happen..
Asmi - I am

I never stood a chance...

This is selected as a WOW post

She : I never stood a chance, did I..?
He : It's not what you think..the chance of you cannot be equated to the chance of 'Us'..don't you think?
She : Chance of 'Us' can happen only if I am your choice..but the way you are talking now..
He : It's not that I don't have feelings for you think it was all a farce..! You don't..don't you?
She : I am not questioning your feelings..I remember you speaking about our bond and saying that you don't want to name it.. and all this while I thought that you meant our bond to be nameless..our relationship to be beyond name..without conforming to the boundaries but something pure and free..but never in my dream I thought that you don't want to give it a name!!
He : Yes I didn't name because I wanted our relationship to take its own course, I didn't want to restrict it..
She : I can construct dam to a river but never to an ocean.. you are one such …

Wind, warmth and nostalgia

Driving through the rain drenched roads awash with cold wind which hit my face without mercy, I was transported into realm of silence until I chance upon you driving through the same road enjoying the bliss of rain on the bike you love racing along with the speed you favour most, a passionate recklessness coupled with wild abandon oozed out of you, attractive it was to see you in your own world and in that moment the rain and wind froze... ceased to exist, it's you alone holding my mind in your grasp, the cold wind brazing my face just adds the right amount of chill to my already shivering heart which is beating against the rib cage.

I see you laugh with the person sitting behind you, the fun and frolic you are experiencing is drains away my energy but I sit mutely not wanting to surrender to tears, but memories pierce one after other testing my will, 
I dare myself to not cry, not succumb to bitterness towards you nor me nor 'us' in the past, 
I feel suffocated for a brief m…
