He told me of yellow flowers and meadows without boundaries,
Of cattle’s and farms and a dream,
Where I was his and he was “the one made for me

Do you believe in love?? Do you feel it exists?? The typical “kahin na kahin , koi na koi, kissi ke liye bana hai types?? I did not till I met him

It was not love at first sight, there were no violins playing or any sort of signs, that the heavens are assumed to put in front of you, stating that he is the one. Nothing!!!. Just a casual hello, a cordial smile, some conversations over coffee, and a good bye. There wasn’t an urge to see him or hear from him again.

But somewhere, somehow, there was a feeling, a feeling of having known him earlier, a feeling that connected them both on a different level altogether. Was it love?? No not yet.

His company put her at ease,
They laughed over things that only they could understand,
The felt complete in each others presence
And yet , they were not in love.
Silence between them was comforting
There was no awkwardness
They could discuss about the stars and the moon
And about the shapes made by the clouds..

It was beautiful, yet undefined
Were they in love?? well not yet.
Their conversations unfolded their past,
Something which they never spoke about,
Was out for the other to hear.
Their fingers touched
And longed for each other
Yet they were not in love.
Their hands entwined themselves
And their eyes found each others,
A million questions fluttered through them, before their lips met
The questions were left unanswered, yet they had their answers
Somehow, they still were not in love.

Her eyes bore his stories
She was confused beyond words, of why he made her feel this way
His mere presence made her happy
His proximity to another female made her green with envy
And yet they were not in love.

Milte hain hum juda hone ke liye
Milte hain hum juda hone ke liye,
Uss gham main bhi ek alag sa nasha hai,
Kyunki uske har alfaz main tumhara naam hai.

They spent days together, and now it was time to leave,
A feeling of loneliness crept inside her,
But she wanted to be strong and pretend,
She hugged him good bye
And thought she would get over him
But she was wrong
As her every thought was going back to him.
And yet she was not in love.

She dreamed of yellow flowers and meadows
She dreamed of being there with him
She was afraid of being hurt,
And realized it was the same for him,
He had many plans,
And she was nowhere in them
She was hurt to realize , that maybe it was only she who was in love with him.

Of flowers and meadows,
Of cattles and farms
A dreadful night, and it all came crashing down.
He was to go far away from her, far away from this world
As death sought his soul
She ran towards him,
And held him in her arms.
“I love you”, she whispered in his ears
Their eyes met, their fingers entwined
She prayed for two minutes more of his life.
Death bowed before her love, and granted them 2 decades
But they still were not in love.
They were in something beyond,
Beyond something
That even love couldn’t comprehend.

  1. That made me feel all fuzzy inside. I love (no pun intended) it, especially that they were actually beyond love. I think that there are some people like that, and love truly can conquer death. For a time.

    2. Every reason to love this post! I am not into mush either, but this touched a chord.

      Reminded me of that song "Tumhe ho na ho! Lines like "Mujhe pyaar tumse nahin hai magar maine yeh raaz abh tak na jaana. Ke kyon pyaari lagti hai baatein tumhari, kyon tumse milne ka doondoon bahana" in that song sync with the initial part of this post. The finale was an absolute stunner.

  3. //They were in something beyond,
    Beyond something
    That even love couldn’t comprehend.//

    Know what, this reminded me of Tamil movie Guna, where Kamal claims his love cant be understood by human cos it was "beyond" :)

    And love DOES include the mushy stuff, without the hormones there is no me/you! *wisdom-stance* :D heheh! ATB!!

  14. I am never able to write romantic posts. But then saying that this was not a romantic post. This was not about love. They were still not in love. It was something else.
