I did not know where I was. I looked around, but could not tell whether I was on land or in skies. I felt as if I was atop a mountain. Or maybe amidst clouds. Or maybe under the ocean, admiring the corals. But the whole surrounding was beautiful. I felt as if I was born again in a different world.
Am I the only inhabitant in this land ? I listened. Any sound? No. Birds? No. Animals? No. But wait … I realised there was someone else.. Someone whom I knew. Someone whom I like. Good. So I have company in this world.
We spoke for hours together. But neither of us opened our mouths. It was then that I realised : Eyes can speak. Eyes can convey our feelings. Love, Hatred, Anger, Happiness, Sorrow, anything.
How long has it been since we met? Seconds? Minutes? Hours? Or has someone redefined the unit of time? Or is the passage of time relative to the person whom we are spending time with? I had no idea. Neither did I think about these at that time..Why should I ?
We went for a walk… or were we flying? I could not figure out. Because I did not feel any ground. My legs were only too willing to carry me to the farthest places of this world. We walked for a long time, holding hands. We also had food together. None of the worldly joys or sorrows were lodged in mind. I was very happy. We were very happy. This happiness will last for ever ………..
!@#”Hey Karthik, wake up. Time to get ready and go to college” .. my mom shouted. Was it all a dream? I looked around. My bedroom. No clouds, no corals… Hmmm… those few moments, will I ever get them back? Or was it meant to be a dream ? The walk together, the long hours(or short seconds ??) of talk, were all these meant to be a dream?? Those few moments are etched in my heart. Will we ever get to meet again in this real world? I am wondering…..
