Love them like there’s no other… Love them like there’ll be no one.
Catch them before they’re scorned… Hold them like there’ll never be no one. Stand, with entangled arms, looking into the sky enchanting, and the desert unforeseen.
(Bring your love onto me, boy!
My boy, oh boy! Is my dearest one. Hold on to that thought while I validate it… Again.
Bring your love onto me, boy! Bring your love onto me. I wanna say you’re the one, boy. You’re the one.)
-A mother’s wish for her son
Shifting between the study table and bed, the hands move an inch each time, the ticktock seems unbearable. I pick up the phone to dial and reach outward in hope, but I hear beep, beep, beep. It’s all disconnected.
The kettle boils for long, the whistle is too loud. Shocks every living cell. And then I fall into slumber as the shock settles down.
Same is the routine every night.
And deep inside is a reflection of this chaos.
As the pages turn, the dates change, I can see the transition in my watch. Every night misery ceases to be a mystery I would like to solve.
With time, the line breaks into a curve. Acceptance takes over. I begin to enjoy the solitude and then the unthinkable happens…
The “disconnected” phone rings…
I pick up the phone, cut the call and cause my favorite sound to resound in the caller’s ear… Beep, beep, beep!
I don’t need you anymore.
The joy spread to every contracted muscle, happy hormones making me cry. Not much has changed yet so much with time.
