I like someone. Dude could very well be a jerk. I don’t know. I don’t know him. But my brain has decided that his CV matches the profile of the vacant position of prospective father to my children, the latter of whom, incidentally, I’m terrified of having.

Yesternight I had a nice dream. I was in bed, all tucked up, lying on tummy and half asleep, telling the object of my affections’ mum  – she was sitting on the bed showing me a sari – why I didn’t like the sari she was showing me. Now to the best part. Object of my affections lies down on top of me, hugs me and goes to sleep. And I fall asleep like that because I’m cozy and warm. And it’s a perfect world.

And then, in the morning, I wake up to our, who-are-we-kidding, less than perfect world.

But it’s alright’ it’s all good. I slept well and comfortably.

And I’m saying this completely unsarcastically – I  truly am blessed.


Close your eyes,

Give me your hand, darling,

Do you hear my heart beating,

Do you understand,

Do you feel the same..

Or am I only dreaming,

Or is this burning, an internal flame?

I believe, it’s meant to be,

Darling, I watch you when you are sleeping,

You belong with me…

Here’s to the moments *lifting glass of juice in a toast* where you look into another human beings eyes and think that This, indeed is love; This, is what poets for time immemorial have been going on about; This, is home; This is it, the real thing, the calm after a storm, that far-off impeccable line in the horizon, a state of nirvana. The moments in time when for once, you know. You know what you want, and what you want is This, and you know that This is everything, and you know you have everything, and everything is This. When you feel the doors in the region of your chest where your mind tells you your heart is, open, open and evaporate. And all you feel, is This. The moments in time when you’re engulfed in love that it doesn’t even occur to you to disbelieve. When you give someone your trust. Unconditionally. That, I think, is what makes those moments what they are. The fact that you give someone your complete trust, the experience so powerful that it overwhelms you.

*Blinks* And… we all know what happens when one is stupid enough to give someone one’s unconditional trust.
