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 the corners of the room.

The wet grass fresh with rain could've soothed her feet and mind, but not today, or rather not tonight. The dilemma tore her thoughts and fed her sanity. Every logic and every emotion gnawed her senses. One is her heartbeat and the other her breath. Losing one will result in death, yet the ultimatum was thrown at her face. Anger and Helpless, she screamed into the night, but no one heard her. Not even the moon.

The moonless night descending darkness over them, 
the stars twinkle 
but a dull affair.
Heavy with agony
Tired of thoughts
lonely they slept
on a moonless night

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..do 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 understand..one can construct dam to a river but never to an ocean.. you are one such …

Day 18
Time : 11:45 AM
Samhitha was in her playback mode rewinding the image of the cemetery guy in her mind, he was in white today contrast to his previous attires which was mostly dark. She was oblivious about the blazing pair of eyes observed which was observing her carefully.
Time : 2:00 PM
It's fun to get paid for daydreaming! ;)
But impress me with some work too!!
Read the note pinned. Puzzled, Samhitha looked around when a voice caught her unaware.
'I'm here', Vivaswan smiled. 'You scared me!', she said. ' Well... First things first. We are working in a team, and I mailed you the details of our project. So let's get started' 'Yeah, sure' 'Good. Keep that note pinned to your board. It'll help you whenever you go all dreamy', he chuckled. 'It's you? It's you who pinned this?', Samhitha was angry. 'As I said. First things first. Work first, we can catch up on other things …

Alluring Unknown

Sweaty palms and racing mind. Breathe in... breathe out, I commanded my mind, but in vain. My mind was revolving around various thoughts and questions. Too many things craved my attention, too many points to be remembered. Numerous tips and warnings started to pour in my way as soon as I broke out the news of me going to a foreign land all alone!

Aren't we the people of a developing and promising Nation of the world? And yet we are the one who expects our daughters, wives, sisters to be back home by 6:00 or 7:00 PM. No? Well well, being born and brought up in a middle-class household, I had my own set of restrictions and freedom.
Freedom came with responsibilities. And restrictions were always a part of life. That's the reason my parents were apprehensive when they got to know that I would be flying to Europe to join my husband. While my parents were Openminded to let me live my life the way I wanted to, they had few restrictions too and flying all alone for the first time to…
