As I finally Stop ...


As I reach the very end, I smile and smile and smile at myself,
Wondering at the child I had become – curious, stubborn and teary eyed.
As I bolt open the last door, I laugh and laugh and laugh at myself,
And all the “No’s” that I had shouted with pride.
I check my nose in place, high up in the air,
Refusing to move down and look into your eyes.

As I cross the threshold, I hear...
Something familiar, pulling me back,
Something poignantly sweet,
Something that speaks to me and sings to me,
Something that sounds a lot like music;
Not music designed, nor music planned,
But sounds coming from... within,
Pulling me back, asking me to turn around.

As I listen to this... thing,
I remember everything that I love-
Mother’s reassuring hands,
Friends screaming by the ice cream parlour,
A long drive in the rain,
A surprise birthday party,
Cuddled up in front of HBO,
Books, bowls of apples and oranges and a rainy day,
Peacefully sleeping at night,
A walk under the scorching sun,
Little gifts! Oh! Stationery!
A red scarf and a painted rose.
An auto rickshaw ride together,
Touches, kisses and long nights.

Something that goes beyond music,
Beyond your loving gazes,
Beyond the warmth of blood and
Beyond the kind words
Quenching the thirst of a lonely wanderer.

I stop, finally.
I enter and close the door behind me.
After all, it is time I faced the music,
All alone and all by myself.

To my best understanding, its just the staring, by no means it can be stopped.

You just keep going, all will follow your path. Just move on. All the best.

The music within is the music you don’t listen
Every beats resemble my life.

I don’t know how it starts
But follows by a sweet melody
The tune that never repeats itself in the song.
I love the music within
I love the start so does everyone
It resembles my childhood.

The nodes start to take off
The zazz, the energy lifts me
Makes me think yes I can do anything
Bring me back the weeds and the yell
Suddenly it changes track with a morning bell.
I want to live that youthful part of the song again
