It Happened Last Night!

The Pillow still bears the marks….the patches which have yet not dried up, the portions where it has been thumped to hard… this is a total give away. As I try to read your eyes laced with reddish veins, you smile… What??!! No am fine!!...You always do that…so many times…but you always forget one thing…to hide the marks left behind from the last night’s gory. The page of the book still reads the same no as it read four days back. You tell me, its too boring, I will pick up that other one……As I give you that meaningful look…..you turn your eyes away to a blind spot……I know that you are miles away from me, though it’s a just a matter of few feet. The lovely greens and yellows of the room have paled…..the sunlight which picked up the corners of the room and reflected them in your eyes….now suddenly appears too bright……

I know if I try a bit too hard, you will smile……but the vision will never grasp it. In fact it would be as false as that tale which you explain to me loosely……what you don’t realize is that even your own voice is not ready to empathize with what you utter…..the empty bottles of course have a label over them too…..wasn’t it chilling yesterday……but what you forget it is that so it has been for 35 December years of your life, and never have they receded the way they do now……
You square your shoulders and bring yourself up, but I can notice that tremble…..my heart goes out for you…I feel like saying…..you don’t need to do this….but then I catch myself, maybe this push which you give to yourself will be of aid…..I clench my fists as I feel a helpless anger seeping through me…..these are the times when I realize that I am total useless jerk……

You give me a playful thump…don’t be so serious and thoughtful….you tell me….you are just reading too much of the situation…….and I carry on with your bluff…..because there is one fact which you don’t know…..I stood outside your door last night mustering up my courage to knock it!And I know it happened last night.....
