Enthusiasm

Don’t want the person you call to be enthusiastic?

Might not be always, but at times some romance,

What if it’s missing?

Totally empty on the other side.

Beffudlement

You are odd and I still stand by you,

Unromantic that you are, you don’t sympathise

No pity case for me, no caring sharing words-

I hit my head and you turn it to humor,

You don’t let me cry though, not offering shoulders-

When I feel you don’t love, it’s then I realise.

Being challenged is what I love, not being pitied

Tantrums are not my style, it is you who can,

You love me the best you can, that’s what I accept .

You taught me

Smiling and laughing not my best attributes,

Keeping calm and cool was still unlearned,

Indifference and apathy were my best weapons,

Yet all these dissolved when you came,

You taught me to face the world with a smile;

Niggling and grumbling wouldn’t get me anywhere,

Did I realise the great fall then? No,

You were calm while I seethed with anger,

You smiled while I smirked,

You were my peace, my trust, my sole,

My mind being its own master,

An angel could never be my soul,

I sought the easier way out, running far

Lingering would tell me the truth,

Patience was never my element,

Yet you cared and shared with me,

Deeper did I fall, when I knew your smile,

Could follow your smell and shadow,

Yet you asked me made stop mid-path;

Smiling you gave our angel, a blush like yours-

You were not beholden, yet you let me hold,

Our angel is now my calm and peace,

Makes me smile and laugh, just like once did.

Souless

They told me to cry, I couldn’t

They said you will never be back,

I tried but couldn’t feel,

Was my mind so strong, not letting me break,

Anticipation perhaps is my answer,

My soul was already lost, when you were done

I knew you wouldn’t be back,

So I let my soul free to roam with you.

I know you were there

Every moment, I turned my back

Dark alleys and rusty buildings adored my sight,

I could feel someone close to me,

But my eyes chose not to see

How long did you keep me company I don’t know,

The faint cologne was unmistakably your love to show;

I know you were there ever moment;

To know I was safe , not being poisoned.

What were you doing ?

“So will you be doing that “? she asked him

“Do what “? he asked her while turning a page of their old wedding album .

“Did you even listen to anything I said”? she enquired with a scowl

“Umm…Actually no”, he replied like a kid caught with a candy.

“Then what were you doing while I was ranting the list “, she asked him almost fuming now.

He knew how to calm her, “I was just trying to understand, how a woman could look so beautiful and yet retain for the past 40 years”.

A smile slowly crept up her lips and she gave a small peck on his cheek.

Being there for her

“Care to tell me , when is your birthday”? he asked while skimming the jeans’ which had been showcased in the women’s section.

“Day after tomorrow”, she replied and then after a pause” But why are you asking ? You wouldn’t be able to attend it right”?

“Ah this one “, he exclaimed finding the right one for her “What happened”? she asked , concerned for him.

“Uh well I am buying vegetables”, he said to cover ” Now, to answer your previous question, yes I will attend”.

” But I will be able to “, she cut him off ” do it alone “, he completed for her.

” I know you can do it, but behind that facade of a strong woman , there’s a little girl ” , he could hear her sigh ” who , my dear, wants someone to hold her hand while she cuts her cake, to sing a birthday song for her”, he said while passing the jeans along with other goods to the woman standing in the counter section ” And I want to be that someone”, he could imagine her smile. 😊
