Heart? or Mind?

As earth faced the moon, and stars adorned the sky, she took her seat across him, meeting him after all these years felt very taxing but somewhere a part of her had wished for this moment.
He : It’s good to see you
She : Same here
He : So.. how are you?
She : Fine, thank you and I can see you are fine too. Tell me about why this meeting? you didn’t call me here to ask how am I doing, isn’t it, after all these years.
He : I want to know what you feel about me.. I mean ..I want you to leave all those bitterness about me and take care of your heart..
She : Why, now? Just because I am not married? or I am not in any relationship? I am fine, like really fine, this is my choice of living. And speaking of my heart, I think, heart can be taken care now or maybe later, but it is mind that must be handled with care, that is where memories reside, heart is resilient, it has the ability to heal..if not it collapses once for all, but what about mind? it eats every moment throwing flashes of memories around.. Sorry, but now I have taken care of my mind and heart as well. You came here to meet me not because of me being single or because of our shared past, it is only because you feel guilty, because you feel it is your mistake to have been involved with me and you just want to say few soothing words and convince me to get married, so that you can claim to friends that we parted and chose others for a better life, and you don’t want others to think that I didn’t marry thinking about my past relationship..ex lover,that is you! Well, no! this is my life and my choice. I hope you know what it means to follow one's heart. Thanks for coming,
It is getting late, I guess your wife will be waiting for you. I shall take my leave now. And please delete my number.

Heart heals, It is mind that has to be taken care of? Isn’t it?

Drop in the Ocean

This Post has been chosen by Blogadda team for the WOW Prompt - A Drop in the Ocean


I watched the butterfly flutter around flowers in delight enjoying the company of just bloomed flowers, what a beauty life is, I think everyone would have come across this line - "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, she became a Butterfly"
And I am still a caterpillar cocooned in a shell, wanting to explore the world yet chained down..

*a few years back*

The noises in and around didn't make much sense, a way to end it all was the only thing looked forward.

How did I end up here was the constant question buzzing in my head, half baked advises, half baked understanding and dreams everything pushed me far from thinking straight, after all I was just another student who had cleared her 12th exams - PCMB (Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology), the pride of parents, a tag to boast! 
Just another stude…

Known Stranger

It was another sleepless night for me, where past and future fought my attention.
Tired of heeding their request I switch on my phone and scroll through the feed on a social platform, a series on photography catch my eye,a new one in my following list. I 'like' those black and white pictures,
While a new message pops up from the photographer of course.
A simple banter follows by two bored human beings, a basic hi hello and background of present status, were the typical q and a. Deciding to call it a day, I am about to type a good night, when I get a message asking to send the song I'm listening.
Exchanging the link of songs,I paste the link ready to hear, but what fills my ear jolts my heart. It's a familiar song, which was played in loop day and night. Mind feels clogged and then memories rush causing blurred visions of all those halcyon days. Sleep which hovered above few minutes back is nowhere to be seen. Pain and love pound the walls of my heart, my mind numbs while my s…

A Confession

Your name had drawn me to you. Yes, Even before I saw you, your name held a curiosity;
And that is the reason I spoke to you.
We acknowledged our friendship and it was normal for both of us. But somewhere I had my doubts as to what you really are. Kinda bad boy?, my mind questioned a lot.
But you made me feel comfortable around you.  And that was all I wanted.

As days passed,we were much more ease with one another. You never pretended, which I liked most.
You are not the Oh sooo sweeet guy type. But more of bitter.. Bittersweet guy..
A caring guy. I felt your care almost always! But you also teased me, called me names.. But then it all made us much closer.

And we became Best Friends!! :) :)

Days,months,years passed in blink of eye

But in all these whirlwind I liked you so much..Or much more than that
I am not sure whether you realized it or not but I took my time for the realization to sink in.
Was it just like? or did I get attached to you.. I couldn't find answer.
But I think you guessed it…
