Long and Gone!!

I knew one day it would happen!! So many a times I had told myself about it too….preparing myself, waiting like an eager child, twiddling my thumbs with impatience sometimes. But no dictionaries, encyclopedias and words of wisdom prepare you for the climax. Wait, patience, journey is probably the most explained words, but the final destination is never given its due. Nobody tells you that “knowing one thing and finally experiencing is totally a different ball game”…..

That one fine day when it just recedes you, evaporating like it never existed……leaving you like an empty shell…..and suddenly all that was there looks like a complete waste. Books, fiction, non-fiction, songs, lyrics, blogs all appear like aliens…..to the point that its kind off started scaring the shit out of me. Its something like a place which was full of ruckus and din has suddenly been evaded by deep eerie silence. A silence so strong , those earlier voices appear like a figment of imagination.

Void they say is an awful word, but guess they have never been to a smiling junkyard, which is so glad to be free post a successful junkyard sale. After being crowded for years down the row with unused and obsolete stuff, with a pile increasing everyday, its glad to be free of that. Good Riddance!! Who cares about “Artificial Fullness” when its just an added pain(did I hear a chuckle there!!).

Solitude!! Mark me was never so fascinating….because among the din, my own voice was lost. In fact in preliminaries I did not even know if I could even utter a word. And if I did also, it probably never reached my ears. But for once all I hear is an echo……Just had a revelation…. “That baritone is damn too lovely”!!!

"knowing a thing and then experiencing it is really a very different things ". Very wisely said. Knowing Love and falling in Love, are altogether a different things, for instance.


The Use of words and the expression you gave to the face of feelings is tremendous. In a way its very realistic and on the other hand it looks wittier too cuz what you wrote says it all that way.

Sorry to say but I was disappointed to see the conclusion so soon and so abruptly. Forgive my human mind, which expected to sink in, while reading this post.

I am glad to have started my day with a beautiful post like this. I see, you have come back after a while and that while is a year :)

Thanks for the visit at my blog and keep in touch :)

Cheers
Mahesh
