SHE: you know the reason why I never leave you?
HE: what is it?
SHE: because I know, if I ever leave.. you won’t stop me. Not even once. You might not even care to ask why are you leaving and you’ll let me go easily like a sand you hold in your fists and the moment you let it even slightly loose, it falls. You will not stop me.
HE: if leaving makes you happy then go ahead.
SHE: I lied. I lied every time when I said I don’t expect anything from you. I lied when I said I can live without you. I lied when I said I was happy. I do expect and I expect a lot, but you know what… If everyone fulfilled expectations then there would have been no miseries, no tears, no melancholy only happiness….!! how imperfect that world would be..!!!!
she:- why did you enter my life. Why did this happen. Why the circumstances turned against us. What happened to the things you said?
he:- I know what I said. But you see things change with time. I don’t know, you just don’t have that spark in you any more.
she:- But I never changed. I am still the same old girl you considered the reason of your smile, the gleam of your twinkling eyes. You forgot the sleepless nights, the never ending chats. How can you say that..!!!
HE:- I remember everything. But I don’t wish to talk about it anymore.
she:- So you do remember. Was my impact so feeble that you won’t even care to stay. To tell me what made you so stoic and numb towards my devotion. What made you blind towards all my affection. Please answer me..!! I need to know what was my fault. Why did I become the ultimate victim.
he:- I warned you. Didn’t I. Don’t play with fire you might end up getting charred. Yet you didn’t listen.
she:- I did. I tried my best.. But you already became a part of my soul. I couldn’t separate you. Even if it meant burning myself.
He:- too much infatuation. Isn’t it young lady. ?
she:- If infatuation lasts for eternity; If infatuation makes you relinquish yourself in the fire of love; If infatuation makes you so selfless that you keep the person above yourself, then yes, IT IS INFATUATION.
SHE: you came like a storm that never really subsided. My dry soul needed some warmth but you.. actually made it cold. how I wish I could go back and could change a few things.
HE: It was never meant to be. I never wanted it to be. flow with the tide of time and you shall realize that it was nothing but your fancy.
SHE: I never wished for anything. I had strong walls, yet you managed to break them. you somehow came and kindled a fire, a fire of passion and I… I wanted to immolate my existence in that. May be finding a spark to live on.
HE: You always had the spark. You were an enigma and I just tried to decipher the one lying behind the facade.
SHE: you were there always in my mind, even when I wanted to forget the world I remembered you. I wanted to do everything I can, things that I would perhaps not do for anyone else but you. Without any expectations and hopes I wanted to give it all. Knowing that you might never be able to fathom the depth of my heart. A feeling so pure and pious, what else do I call it if not love..!!
HE: We are two different ends and you have a beautiful garden of roses to select from. Give it time and you will find the most beautiful flower. A flower which will perhaps have no thorns.
SHE: I have already embraced the thorns. Now that I see it, I find that it is flowers that wither away with the squall. thorns stay.. they give the flowers their strength.. and how could we imagine a rose without thorns.
HE: May be this is what the fate had for us. this is how it was meant to be.
SHE: yes, you can give me hundreds of reasons to give up. But every time you do so, I shall give you trillions of reasons as to why I want to hold on… Why I would never let go and why there will always be a little hope sitting in the darkest corner of my heart…. If not this world.. If not this life.. I shall wait for that another chance to finish my incomplete puzzle…….!
