Darkness…

To one of those rare winter evening..

After illuminating the city with its warmest rays, the sun had now settled between the swaying leaves. The city streets which kept on buzzing for the entire day were now silent. Hardly few tea and coffee shops were open across the roadside. While everyone buried them self in their coziest homes, she walked along the aisle of the river.

A lady with beautiful brown eyes and raven black hair, gently paced along the empty streets. She appeared to be lost somewhere in her own world, as if she was searching for something along the river side.

She kept on walking till she found a wooden bench located in the dark corner. Seeing that her face lighted up with a smile as if she had found a treasure box. The darkest corner of the city seemed to be her end of search.

After a stressful day at work and a monotonous routine, she found a source of happiness in that little hidden corner. With thousand of thoughts running in her mind, she muttered: this place is all i need for the rest of my life. Far away from the chaos of life the silence here carries my heart away. There’s no one to grumble about me, no one to point me out at how should I behave, no one to teach me the norms of society and no one to rule my life.

While she thought about all this a smile of deep satisfaction rolled over her face. It appeared as she had finally smiled after ages. She realized it’s not that darkness always comes with loneliness or emptiness. May be the world has just mistaken it. There are times in life when being in the loneliest corner can teach you wonders. The ones that are not taught by the inspirational videos that are stuck on the internet. At one point of time inspiration, motivation, happiness, tears, satisfaction has to come from within us and this can be sensed only by spending some time far away from the muddled world.

This winter evening had been the warmest one for her, though the city was covered with brisk but there was fire within her. She was ignited by the happiness that little wooden bench made her realize.

Her mind and heart were now in common acceptance and she perceived : “Nothing in life is dark or empty, it’s just our perception. We always see a half filled glass as empty and often forget that it is half filled too. It all depends on us, how we discover our life and how we let our thoughts shape it. Yes, there might be odd days too where things might just not fall in place and when no one would be by your side but that’s not the end. We ourself can heal our soul and probably in a much better way than anyone else can do for us. Labelling darkness as a gloomy thing is just not the right approach, darkness actually comes with so much peace and happiness. The silence teaches us the hardest chapters of life in the easiest way.”

With all this beautiful thoughts and a new perception towards life she started walking back.Just few steps and she paused a bit, turned back and waved good-bye to the little wooden bench: “Good Bye my Happy Dark Corner, I shall see you soon..!!”

The Surprising Door Bell

A year later, sharp at 12:00 am the door bell rang “TING TONG, TING TONG

Meera who was busy attending the phone calls rushed and opened the door. To her daze, a middle-aged man was standing on the other side holding a Bouquet of Blossoming Red Roses, her favorite Ferraro Rocher  chocolates and eye pleasing gifts.

Thunderstruck Meera was almost about to shout : “What Daaa….” Just then she gasped, collected all the stuff and hurried towards her room. For the next few minutes she kept on gazing all the gifts, she very well knew from where it had arrived. A drop of tear rolled down her eye when she murmured –

The Best Surprise from the Best Person” ~ Rahul. His name from Meera’s lips created a beautiful echo in the void room.

Meera calmed herself and started hunting for her phone. While dialing his number, Meera thought : ‘A call after a year‘ (Although no calls were made in the entire year but Rahul’s number still was in her favorite contact list). Even before the ring could be heard, Rahul picked up the call (The most awaited phone call for Rahul).

And it was “Silence on both sides

While Meera recovered some courage to say “Hi“, Rahul as always had already taken a move. The first 3 words he spoke were

Happy Birthday Darling..!!

The lovestruck word “DARLING” after a year made Meera blush. She finally spoke “Rahul, I am overwhelmed to see how perfectly you make my day so special. Each and every small effort of yours makes me feel so grateful. Thank you so much Rahul

Rahul replied : “Meera, this is the day I was waiting for since a year

The conversation then started and continued for hours and hours. They discussed about each and every bit of their past One year and also how much they missed each other. Loud laughter, tears of joy  and constant chitchat continued from both the sides. Clock ticked 9:00 am and when the rays of sun lighted the city, they realized they were already late for their moronic office.

Just before they were about to hung the phone, Rahul asked : “Meera, can we please meet today evening, at the same coffee shop ?

Meera (desperately wanted to meet him) : Within no seconds she replied “Yes Rahul, sharp at 7 pm

With grin on their lips and blush on their cheeks, the phone call ended.

P.S : Some relations demand time.. 

 

 

 

Because the Wait never Ends..!!

It’s been 4 years 38 minutes ever since we departed ways he uttered in his mind.

It all started on the first day of their college. She stood out of her lavish car perfectly dressed in a white shirt and a denim jeans. A dusky girl with black shining hair and a fright in her eyes. In a mob of hundreds her eyes seemed to find someone, someone who could hold her hand and make her feel that everything is going to be fine. And it was the time when he had already fallen for her.

From being classmates and exchanging notes, they became friends. Within no time they turned up to be best friends. Somewhere down the lane there was something between them, something which they dint spoke about, but they knew they had started loving each other.

With passing months, they confessed their feelings for each other. Her madness and his maturity made them the most adorable one’s. Their relation was like a river, calm and deep. Everything just appeared to be perfect, things changed only when the college ended. They knew long distance would be a challenge for them and that they had to face it.

They tried to fight against the physical distance but it wasn’t so easy as they had expected it to be. Soon daily messages and video calls turned into a blue moon call. They realized it wasn’t subtle, the charm had flown far away. He was still hopeful, for him she was the first and the last girl that he could ever dream his life with.

The real storm hit their relation when she decided to quit. For her love wasn’t enough, she loved him but she knew that it was not enough for a life long togetherness. He never asked her to give a try .Deep inside he knew that the wound cannot be healed.

Today, when all the memories gush in his mind, his heart still has a hope.

A Hope of loving her all again,

A Hope of holding her hands,

A Hope of never departing again….

And to that he kept on saying : “I love her, and that’s the beginning and end of everything

~Love Forever..!!

Gloomy Night and the Shining Star

“And the same night again,” She whispered in her mind, pitch dark sky and the dusky clouds. The city lights appeared to wane in front of inky sky.The people and animals scurried to the comfort of their homes while the trees swayed with the wind.The stars were hidden behind the fluffy clouds.The sky engulfed in a never ended blanket of pure emptiness.

It had been few months now that she shifted to a new place for a better job. She kept on working all day long like a clock.Every Day while returning from work in evening, she wandered along the streets, she used to see a mob of people chitchatting and laughing.For her this was just a dream, having some friends in an unknown city. While she missed her home, she kept on recalling old memories. Her life was filled with emptiness and pain. Even though she had a good job and place to reside,there was something missing.

While she recalled her old days, she stood right at the window and kept on gazing the sky for hours and hours. For her it was a sleepless night, a night which was filled with bed of loneliness and despair. All alone in her spacious and extravagant flat she kept on searching for something in sky to fill her sadness.

Somewhere deep inside her heart, she had a belief that this night was different. Even the dullest sky gave her hope.She kept on chasing sky in hope of a shining star.
She somehow wanted to come out of loneliness. She felt as if the sky and stars
would fill her life with happiness and gratitude. And this hope made her determination firm and she looked at the sky without blinking her eyes.

And…

Her hope did not turn into despair , a bright star popped out from the shaggy cloud.
Seeing this, her face shined up, it appeared as if the brightness of star had lightened her face. She realized how a small hope and inner belief changed the way she looked at her LIFE. She suddenly felt like the city was all her, the sky which once was filled with emptiness was now a reason of her happiness. The bright star and the sky suddenly added a meaning to her life, she started loving her work and found the place to be the most interesting one. Her emptiness blew away like a storm and there was now everything that she loved. She became a kind of girl who was now crazy about her life and she realized this is all what she always dreamt off.

Even the darkest sky changed her Life to a Brighter one.

P.S.

Stay Hopeful and Keep trying .. 🙂

Love your LIFE , for Miracle can happen any time when you least expect it to happen.
