i sang songs in bits and pieces in my head,
everytime I noticed you once
sometimes, it is an orchestra playing in my head,
and sometimes, it is a slow romantic song from a popular bollywood movie.
so, when you let go of your inhibitions, maybe we can dance to those tunes. i tried.
to not, played
to not, build castles made out of conversations that never happened,
to not, jump into a hole, without thinking once,
to not, write words for you that wouldn’t fit in one page.
but, it happened.
it was like a flow of the river,
which doesn’t stop,
to check what it is taking along with it.
it was like closing your eyes,
and falling asleep,
it was like,
fitting in place, in the gaps, between them.
you, on the other hand,
saw us like two people,
who are the light at the end of the tunnel,
for each other.
made strings of memories,
out of our conversations,
to keep our sparks alive.
you and i,
it was everything,
that shouldn’t have been there,
you and i,
were two people,
who had a story,
that did not have the option of an always.
