An Unforgettable tryst


Things don’t come easy

I have been wandering for long

I don’t get what I want

I keep on trying with the force

Falling every time like a ghost

My wishes are without wings I thought

Last night I invoked god to tell me what’s wrong

I went out to hug a tree

I hugged it for long in a plea

In those silent moments I was guided to

Move towards nearby beach

I sat near the seashore watching

Tireless waves coming and surrendering

Themselves to the mud with glee

I closed my eyes and sat quietly

In a minute I heard my breath very clearly

The sound of my breath was corresponding with waves enormously

I heard a voice coming from sea asking me where I have been lately

She was Aphrodite the goddess of sea

Talking to me directly

I told her that I was missing my glee

Tears rolled out from my eyes when I told her my story

I wish my wishes had wings and I could fly with them instantly

I said it with gloom in my heart sloppily

I want to be like you totally tension free

The way you dance with every wave

The sound that waves makes

It gives me little peace whenever I sit near thee

She said I will teach you how to fly with your wishes if you care to join me

I said I am too scared to come closer to you

You are colossal and i will get lost in between

She smiled and gradually sent a small wave as an angel to touch my feet

I felt wave like a cool breeze touching my feet

I moved forward only to witness water coming up to my knees

The mud below was taking me down along with it tenderly

She then sent a big wave and I was inside the water drowned completely

For a moment I was under the water and the next moment I was out of the water feeling heavenly

One more wave and I was drowned again

I stood up with every stroke of wave

Forgetting reason I was there for

I started playing with every big and small wave childishly

I rejoiced, overlooking the reason I was weeping two minutes back hysterically

She asked me to be closer to her

She was flirty but treating me with honor

I chose to move forward this time

 I was very petrified as the mud was carting my feet inside

The water clutched me till my neck firmly

I struggled hard to come out

I tried to move backwards but there was no way out to shun

The goddess of sea had embraced my body in her arms completely

I tried wrestling with my arms and legs

Alas I was going down and down instead

My breath was clogging as if this was the end

The whole panorama throttled me to its best

I fought harder I could not see anything

My mind was at rest

I could hear my heart missing its beat in haste

The moment I declared truce with the water and left my body light

The water bought me up and I was floating up with delight

Like a mother giving light swings to her infant in her arms right

She guided me towards the lesson in my mind

The more you fight, the more you will be drained

Go with the flow leave yourself light and enjoy every gain

Nothing lasts forever is the lesson I gave you with each passing wave

You were guided towards me because you invoked god to guide you with your pain

Leave your wishes like I leave waves

And they will have wings one day

When air will decide to play its own game

Rejoice your life and don’t live in haste and whenever you feel empty come to me

I will take away all your pains

I will revive this lesson every time you come to me with a broken heart in shame

That night I learned my lessons hard way

The morning shined brighter in my heart next day
