#DriftingApart

dandelionSearching eyes, peering through the mirage of life

Thoughts like wild torrents tumble, causing a strife

Igniting a spark that pervades the soul

Strengthening the scaffold that makes me whole

 

My mind wanders with nothing to hold

Through dark corridors, that were once cold

Pondering over emotions gathering dust

Memories drown, in the amnesia sea, covered in rust

 

I walk on its shore, with foam kissing my feet

As if begging me to halt, albeit for a beat

I smile at the naivety of the waves, being so nice

They hardly knowing I’ll never compromise

 

A distant lighthouse became my guide

Cajoling me to take my stride

I glanced upon the deep blue sea

Blowing conch shells that greeted me

 

My true essence shown

I keep dancing on my own

Soaring through the wind on a night dark

I, from the world, am slowly drifting apart

#DreamComeTrue

Fairy Godmother, the Tooth Fairy, and Elves were a few characters I had unshakable faith in, as a child (Every child has, isn’t it?). I believed they had the power to make my dreams come true. Growing up, I knew it was just fantasy. However, sometimes some dreams do come true. Mine did, four years ago on this day i.e. October 17, 2012 at Pune’s Amanora Park Town.

Like everyone else, I too have a bucket list, with a number of items to be ticked off. One of them was watching Enrique Iglesias perform live. Back in those days, I was living in Pune, (aahh!! Blissful days), when this announcement was made. Being a huge, huge fan of him, I was quite excited and also very eager for the ticket sales to commence. Though, I wasn’t earning a big amount in those days, I saved and scrimped to be able to afford a ticket.  As if the stars had conspired, I finally got the much coveted ticket. And then the day I was eagerly awaiting dawned.

Reaching the venue, even before the gates opened, I was like a child at a candy store. It felt as a dream, watching the entire event unfold in front of my eyes. The best memory of the evening was, when I heard “Hero” being sung live. That was the moment when I literally had tears of joy. It truly was a dream come true. Of course, I did have a hoarse voice, the next day, from all the screaming my lungs out. But then, nothing matters when your wish is fulfilled.

Sitting here in Bangalore and reminiscing the event, four years later, still brings a smile. I wish he performs again In India.

For now I can just say, maybe that day my wish on the eyelash came true. Eternally grateful!

A few memories, frozen in time.
