She was woken up by her mom, in the middle of the night, pointed out towards the window. She saw another herself walking in the varandah holding a blue light! She looked back at her mom. The expression on her face told her that the blue-her was now inside her!!

She pulled her outside from her with all the strength. It vanished.

Her dog then came and slept beside her.

Of flashbacks, happy-endings & the reality

Sometimes she wished she was living in a flashback.
Cause then she could watch today from a comfortable vantage point.
Then the present wouldn't have hurt her so much.
Cause then she would already have known about a happy ending...?

Birth and death

It was her birthday. But there was a certain void around her. Her thankyous to everyone's greetings sounded more like a chor. She looked abnormally calm. Her smile was melancholic.

Later, when all had left she said, "I want to sit by a fire beside you."

"It's summers! All okay with you? I am worried sweets."

"Can't wait till the winters... "

He did light up a fire for her that night. It was her last.


He switched the lights off and pulled the sleeping her towards himself. She smiled with her eyes shut. Today had been a beautiful evening with a long stroll on the beach.

She glowed in the moonlight coming through the window. The sound of the waves was making this moment majestic. Wrapping himself around her, he whispered, "Lady, everything was worth this..."

He had never felt so calm in his life.

Your heart constricts uncontrollably when in one moment’s distraction you realize you are going to miss someone. In that unsettled feeling you reinvent love. In that suddenness you understand attachment. Then, in that awkward stillness you brace yourself once again, to let go.

I have never been good with goodbyes.
