With each passing moment, the unknown hues of my passion deepened, stained each cell of the heart.
But unrequited as it was, I became just another random speck in his galaxy of Stars.
Another mere photon in that oblique stream of sunlight that washed his thoughts every day every minute.
The last Dream of Dawn that waited till the Silver room of Moon receeded, to merge with reality. But died again when the film of his glances opened.
When the intruding eyes of Darkness unveiled my scars, I stared at that strange reflection in the mirror, chastised myself,
” Again..But why..Why was I the second..never the first option ”
Like the abandoned Protagonist of an incomplete novel, I saw the artist in me lying in that grave of desolate metaphors, breathing the ‘million’ words he might had an urge to say.
But, He didn’t…
He went onto be that Brilliant Star for me whose reflected glory I would always want to share.
For whom pages of Diary will fill up, unhindered passion would complete the chapter titled ” Everything”.
Yet that Muse of my fantasy will be unaware of it..
And Maybe one day when he will break the shackles from his fortress, he will regret the price that I had to pay for the ruins of his Past. But then I will be gone.
And the Shadow will fall between Us.
And I will behold that smile of his in my eyes murmuring the words he always told me, ” Nothing lasts Forever”
Today I proved him wrong.. Everything lasts forever .
From the essence of his voice to my virgin passion! They occupy that unaltered fenced positions in our hearts, only the labels change with time.
From ” Adorers ” to ” Friends ” to ” Everything” and thus “Strangers”
Only Labels Change..
Not Him..Not Me..
Neither our Stories!
That even when he refuses to fit in that scramble of my life,
I softly say ,
“In any Cascades of Reality.
In unknown alleys of my Dream.
In unsurmountable Horizons.
And each such riddles of Life,
as many numberless times I meet you ,
in my own voiceless ways
You will find me beside you.
Shaping the specks of your Present. “
