A Liar's Guide to the Dreams..

In the dead of the night, the dreams come in one by one. They cling to you with soft acceptance, and they know it all..

These are the dreams which leave a note of remembrance. They cling to our tongues like a bittersweet delight.

They feel familiar, though their flavour melts in the mouth... and taste distinctly unusual.

Time Flies...

Its been a year, na?

More than that. Its been a year and more.

And I admit it,
I fell for You. You were everything I ever dreamed of.

But then, I could not match the real You. I could not. I tried to find You but I failed. I tried to find You in so many men but I failed. Because You are in my mind, in my soul, in my heart. Heart of my heart, You remain inside, and I have been looking for You everywhere.

I am stupid.

But now I know. I know that You will never come. Because You are already there. Deep inside me. You are there for eternity because You are immutable. A concept.

I shall let you rest. You are there, I know. Let me move on. Because I have realized that You were something I created. You were a myth.


You........ were a dream.


Now I shall wake.



Come to me.

It hurts to breathe. But I need it to live. And I shall.

As usual.

Its hard to find a concept nowadays. All are adulterated.

Lets see.

Oof. Listening is such an act. I refuse to listen to myself most of the times.
