Dear Diary ,
It’s been after long that I went on a date with Krish . I was tired of the incessant fights , advices and scathing words . So I chose to avoid him for two weeks . We had not gone out for about a month as our fights always dampened any romance that brew up in our conversation . Finally Krish requested me to come along with him for a walk to my favorite park . It had been long . I think he missed me . I missed his company and his presence too . I was just waiting for him to ask . The weather was also just so beautiful . I agreed .
So at the park , he was there , I was there ; rather ‘ we ‘ were there . people around us didn’t matter for his eyes were too captivating for me to look at anything else . His smile too mesmerizing to appreciate anything else around . It was as if I lived all those moments in his eyes for nothing else really mattered . I didn’t want to to think what can be , what should be , what will be . I just wanted to hold his hand with my head on his shoulders and let the cool breeze take its course of love on us . And because I knew I would want that , I made him promise that we’d stay away . I wanted to experience love that existed beyond words , touch , feel and lust .
I really wished if time could halt . Then and there . Till eternity maybe . He was so close to me . I wanted him to kiss me & I wanted to hug him but the will to hold of that and yet feel the same passionate love in his eyes seemed cuter .
The cool breeze added romance to the air as my hair went to and fro with the wind . The slow movement of his hand around my ears through my hair made me almost dizzy as I felt shy yet happy and loved . A scene that seemed hypothetical yet ran across my mind a zillion times turned real . He had neatly put my hair at the back but the butterflies fluttering in my stomach wished my hair came forward again .
His eyes oozed love and made me speechless . I couldn’t say anything for I was so lost in his eyes . I didn’t want any of it to end . I just couldn’t stop smiling !
He couldn’t have looked cuter . Everything was perfect . His bespectacled eyes , my favourite shirt , his 3-day beard . No nonsense . No mean words . No third people to talk about . It was just you and me . Sheer Bliss !
I had never seen him so closely but the dim lights made him look cute and honest . I really wished that he didn’t say something insane for we had less time and fortunately he didn’t . He called me fat ( yet again 😛 ) but that didn’t matter for he was right in front of me talking to me in a voice that was no less than music to my ears . That was all I could wish for at that point of time .
I wished I could put my hand through his ruffled hair ( which turned worse in his constant endeavor of setting them right ) . He touched me , reassured me that everything is going to be fine .
I just came back from my land of dreams and with a heavy heart as I had to leave . Those 10 – 15 minutes of a close yet a sober contact said a 1000 things . All lies about my true feelings that I said and all truths about his emotions that he said and I ignored .
Every moment seemed to run with the speed of light but then I lived a 1000 years each second . I couldn’t wish for more . Awesome Mausam and a wonderful company with whom I was caged in the bubble of love .
If Only time could halt…
