The problem with you is that you have given me so much space, that now it almost feels empty around me.
I was tired and was about to sleep yesterday night when suddenly it showed up in my room!
Without giving my thought any second thoughts, I jumped out of my bed, taking my pillow and my bed sheet in one stretch and ran out of the room!
I kept my things on the couch that was in the hall and tried to divert my mind. Sleep was gone away and the couch was small, my legs weren’t fitting.
At midnight, my grandma came out of her room to switch off the fan running in the hall, thinking that mistakenly I had left it on. She asked me why I was there and I told her everything. She said she would help me, no actually I wouldn’t do anything so yeah she said she would shoo it off (all by herself) from my room in the morning.
Morning came too early and we were all awake by 4. We have a festival here so my grandma had to do preparations. My grandpa was simply moving around.
At 09:00 I begged her to go to my room and check it out. Thankfully she agreed and went in with a broom stick.
She was moving all the card boards and the boxes in the area where I told her that I had seen it.
Okay! It was a lizard! I saw it the night before. It was big, it was huge, it was dark , it had some kinda spots and it’s already freaking me out so I will stop describing it!
My grandma was trying to find it but then when she couldn’t she told me something. That was the reason that I wrote this post today! Whatever she told me, Idk if it was funny or fascinating, I will write it down.
Me: See carefully it will be there in that corner only! I am sure it went there last night!
Grandma: It has probably gone now. It has other jobs to take care of.
Jobs? She can’t be serious!
Me: What job would it possibly have?
Grandma: What? It can’t sit here all day in your room! It has its own works to complete.
Me: What works?!
Grandma: Who will find food for it? It has to only go in search of it.
Hahaha! Surprised by her answer I decided not to speak anything in return. At the last she couldn’t find it in my room and so I planned to sleep on the sofa tonight as well.
Me: I will sleep outside tonight. Just in case.
Grandma: What are you going to do in your life? Lizards are there in all homes you can’t be afraid of them. They don’t do anything they just move here and there and then go back. They don’t do any harm!
She can’t be serious. They move around and go back? And all homes? Who said that? My home is definitely going to be free of them and of all other insects. And if, if by any chance it comes in, well I will be having neighbours for sure!
Now when it’s all over and I wake up alone I go to fetch some coffee as usual, at six I don’t like it, it tastes different today Should I call and ask you how many spoons of sugar you used to mix? I can’t right? Because I am made to know that you are gone? So I get ready to go to work, but I don’t see any car outside You taught me that taxis were not for us And now who is going to give me a ride? I somehow reach office on foot You as a habit are stronger than I thought But now how do I concentrate on work When there is no coffee packed in my coffee pot? So I fetch some of it from the canteen It tastes bitter; I guess it was made to exactly match my mood I leave it on the table and forget about it What had to be done with your memories, I guess I understood. I pack my bag, the empty flask Then walk myself to the now-empty place I wonder if I was in love with you Or it’s your coffee that I can’t replace? I thought we would last longer Longer as in till the Sun ran out of its light We still had to finish that list, remember? The one which we started that night? It looks quite simple as I write about it But it’s actually very hard to go through I am planning to cut the coffee tonight Like beans on the ground, all my parts you have strewed. So I am planning to brew some coffee while asleep I wonder if I have still got that fire burning in my heart If not me, it will definitely know my taste If not it, who will join back my parts? So when I wake up tomorrow, as usual by six I will know the proportions by heart Though now I have decided to reach office on foot, it’s good for health! Few people and habits just leave you smart!
They were sitting on the corner with water clean
one colored red and one was green
On whose right lay an orange too
juicy till the brim, there was one in blue.
Walking with sleepy eyes I stumbled on the one in white
suddenly the room thundered, but with no light!
The then sisters in peace were now sisters in crime
altogether they fell down in a line!
The juice was all over me, I was bathing at mid-night
there was only limitless water in my sight
My mom called out from the other room,
“I heard some sound, are you fine?”
Dumbstruck, I started rushing for the wiper
while the floor began to shine.
Life was stumbling on big and small stones when his fears spoke out to him,
dare not you take a risk, or you might lose
dare not you invent something new and go against the laws
dare not turn on the lights, or they might see your flaws
dare not you ask for a favour, or they might let you down
you are not a writer, you can’t possibly dare to make a verb sound like a noun.
dare not you rest, or you might be left behind!
dare not you try, or you might fail
dare not you speak, or you might err
dare not you love, or they might leave
dare not you cry, or they might consider you weak
dare not you bend, or it might disrupt your pride
dare not you ask, or they might deny
dare not you demand for an explanation, or they might end the ties
dare not you breathe, or you might end up alive!
fears always speak the language of fear,
so if you heart asks you to take a chance and you mind is in a dilemma or at least begins to rethink on it, take it!
Because only if you dare
You can call it a life!
you’ll know what’s there on the other side for you only if you dare to look.
Good luck with it!🙂
If you wanna drink milk, you wouldn’t go to a juice shop right? Even though both have things in common, you know very well that they aren’t the same!
Than what’s up with your career?
Making wrong choices can land you up in hell, while you are busy fantasizing about heaven!
I had forgotten that I could forgive and be happy again.
But now I know, and I am.
