To be or not to be... is there ever an end to it?



In the last few months I have experienced what it feels like to be “falling” and then “in” love – the smile that cannot under any circumstances be wiped off the face, the whole drill of missing even when there is really nothing much to miss, the sentences begun and then left incomplete, the whispered phone calls till late at night – the winter serving as the best excuse to pull the blanket over the head – though I wonder what happens in the summers, the whole wardrobe overhaul, the mirror becoming the best friend, finding everything beautiful, the complete (blissful?) ignorance of the depleting bank balance, unearthing beauty in the strangest of things – things you never remotely thought would come under your radar, the tensed calls from home, the explaining that you never wanted to be a part of, the whole experience of digging one’s own grave by making the mistake of opening your mouth more than necessary (yeah I know it’s a little corny! ; D), the long conversations over “assignments”, the walks in the midnight, the whole experience of the moment when the rest of the world suddenly vanishes into oblivion when you both are there together, the extended meals, the wait…


God is there ever an end to it?!

Well a 'certain someone' seems to be doing that to quite a few of us ;)

Came across such a clear,lucid and lively lingo quite after some time. The paragraph appears to be a true and vivid reflection of the prevailing mental and spatial circumstances. I wonder why they do not come up with this sort of legible communication in scientific literature. But Asmita, keep up the good work. At least we will get a place to breathe in ......

Thanks!
Wrote it at a sudden whim. The incidents are all true therefore the vividness probably. Didn't think it would come out like this and will be well liked by the person referred to in this post.
I think we should keep scientific or any other form of academic literature at bay from something like this.
Glad that it was a pleasant breather for you. Come back more often :)
