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!

Scribbles of a Teenage Heart : The Promise!

Dear sadness, do listen to me

Please stop this killing spree!

Put a lid to your murderous rage!

Stop this fight that you’ve engaged

With my aggrieved soul, countless

Efforts with my mind to mess

At times when they meet success

Cut me up and leave me distressed!

What can I do to stop this fray?

What can I do to make you go astray?

Should I stand up and look into your eyes?

As a part of me bids goodbye

Ravaged by your vengeance

And you fetter me on your way to resurgence,

Weakening me to the core

And you win again as you roar!

But this cannot happen anymore;

I bleed as I await your exterminator:-

Happiness, oh! that profound emotion!

The heart-stirring sweet sensation!

Drowning you in the sea of love;

Something my heart is badly in need of.

But before that I’ll fight to the end you know,

Trust me you’ll not be able to get through,

No matter how many stones at me you throw,

I will hang on with all my heart for sure!

This is my promise to you:-

And you can bet it’ll come true!

Nuked

The blinding light …

The piercing sound …

The crash and burn …

Oh ! the earth-shattering explosion!

Shaking up the essence

Of mankind and humanity

In one go, in one shot

As time stood still

Flabbergasted at the turn of things!

The bodies flew around,

Decimated with disdain!

Oh! They were like worthless muck

Gutted and annihilated in a wink of an eye!

Silence rubbed on the face

Of pain, the calumny of human race,

Dictated by sinned warmongers!

The murderers in cold blood

As a generation obliterated

Saplings hurled to permanent darkness!

The devastation so ruthless!

The destruction so widespread!

Countless succumbed, paralyzing

The emotion we call peace …

The wounded now weep,

Searching in silence, the fragrance

That once came out of the bodies

Of their dear ones as they get ravaged

Day in and day out

By the abhorrent nightmares

Of the blood oozing out of their loved ones’

Ruptured bodies, forever planted

In their cursed memories!
