Some love it is she thought to stay put for the longest time.
It is a winner, a true winner, to have forever faced roadblocks and to have been alive and kicking.
Forever it has faced obstacles, one too many first the diffidence in her, then the search for words, then the fear of inadequacy, then the succumbing to pressures,then his being taciturn but inspite of her many efforts to forget, it has lived within and grown consuming her heart and soul and growing in her a desire a deep yearning to hold him, to care for him, to love him.
For years, for decades, it reached out to her in dreams of floating clouds every single night and even during the day sometimes as a sudden flash that often made her look vain.
Many times in the morning as she woke up she looked to him or the feeling of him next to her that felt so real and true that it either left her elated through out the day or feeling low.
But she has never missed him as much because her feeling of him is so real that it gives her strength and courage.
She goes on with her work and keeps the smile bright on her face.
People tell her so many things, I thought you are so & so because you are so positive.
The truth is it is him or the thoughts of him that held her through.
It is strange since when have they interacted so much.
In fact she told herself for a long time like amma told her that he is younger and she is older and she will grow ugly and he will not like her…. and that scared her into marriage literally…
later she told herself that he is hi-fi party, that his likes and dislikes are not like hers…
then she thought of going to a psychiatrist thinking it is a fantasy for the unattainable that drives her so much
recently though it is becoming very clear to her it is just love for his soul, for him as he is…however he is that is holding her
She keeps a smile always… even tried to talk to a few guys …..but it tires her and she knows for sure that is not for her
She just needs him in her circle of life
If not she said he can give her some solid reason as to how he is immensely happy in his life and how he is not keen to change anything.Like you know, hear it from the horses mouth.
Why he never ever felt anything for her
and that he is tired very tired of her efforts to reach out.
They say one should love and be with those who love you immensely.
She said that she is not sure of his love but of hers to him there is no doubt
and she knows that she is equally deserving of love so there is hope in her love.
As she sits waiting for his call or message she has not moved from near her phone.
Some may call her foolish or impractical and what not but to tell the truth when death walks in what excuse will she have for not giving her best for a life worth living.
will her soul not regret it
she is clear that she does not want that to happen
not because there was no effort, no care, no attempt, no reaching out
maybe then she and him will walk together
maybe they will watch films together
and they may sip a drink
maybe then she will write maybe not
maybe he will read aloud
and sleep or utter those monosyllables
and she could simply watch him sleep and be happy
Sometimes life is a searching for purposes
Sometimes nothing holds the faith in self
