The Story of a Friday Night

Perhaps,

It wasn’t just another Friday night,

For something magical

Was waiting to happen!

Something special …

Maybe, who knew?

As their eyes met,

Again,

For the hundredth time that night!

A spark

Ready to fly!

A connection

Waiting to be made!

But alas! They looked away

Again!

And with drooping shoulders

And a throbbing heart

But with genuine sincerity

They took refuge in the

Helpless company of

The strangers of their lives: –

Strangers they met every day.

Strangers close to their physical self

But miles apart from their souls!

And the lights blazed,

The music grew louder,

The bottles grew emptier,

As loneliness bit their insides

Yet they were never short of laughs;

They needed a get away

Yet they sat along,

Nonchalantly,

With a contented face,

Gulping down the scotch

Their only other succour of the night

Than one another!

And before time

As they took their last sip,

There was this momentary pause

Just for that tiny bit!

Audaciously agonizing!

But surprisingly romantic!

Accompanied by

The fleeting dilemma

And the nervous heart-beats!

An ephemeral silence …

Engulfed them,

Alienating them

From all the ruckus

Of the outside world!

They looked mystified

As time stood still!

And then,

The final glance!

The final twinge!

The final moment

But of unrequited velleity!

As their broken-hearts

Decided otherwise: –

“Not today!”

“Not today”

As if taking a break

Would resurrect the part of them

That was already dead!

Maybe that solitary moment of warmth

Was all that they wished for!

Or maybe it was fate

As they made their way out.

A moment lost: –

A moment of rejuvenation!

A chance missed: –

A change to be whole again!

The music was still as loud as ever!

Most definitely,

It was just another Friday night,

Mundane, average, ordinary!

The Rainbow!

Rainbow

The hours of wait was worth:-

As nature breathed out colors of change …

The western clouds were en route

To get dissolved in the

Azure firmament,

Slowly, gently

With a poignant calm,

Drawing with suave

The ending line to the storm filled moments!

As the majestic sun shone

With all its magnanimity:-

Only to herald

The color-dripping arch,

Embellished in its divine presence,

Curving its way to magnificence!

Like a stairway to heaven

It stood with its mystique

As if it was the bridge

To the ethereal creator

Resting up above;

As the serene spectrum

Like an angel flapping her supernal wings

Shimmered in the zephyr

Bathed in its ephemeral glory

Anointed with an audacious beauty!

And then

One last glimmer!

One last flaunt!

One last splurge of celestial ecstasy:-

Before it resigned itself to nature’s soul

Lost in eternity!

Incorporeal!
