The Storytellar

Let's get lost in a world made of books,coffee and rainy days

Irony

As I stepped out of the bar,My throat was still sore with all that vodka I had, Stumbling somehow I climbed down the stairs cursing the bar owner,Cursing my self and everything that came to my troubled mind.

I rubbed my eyes adjusting them to the bright Street lights,As I started walking on the empty street my mind turned inimical with the old memories.

All that discipline,Uniform, Medals and I never thought one day I would come to this,I never expected life to be fair with a war veteran but never thought it would turn up like that.And who would like to live with a crippleI said to myself ,as if comforting myself that it’s all my fault.Why she had left me ,after all it’s all wealth and riches that a women desire.Had there been a Juliet today she would have gone for  the guy with a long car and an expensive suit and with that I burst into laughter at my own joke,As my laughter echoed on the empty street it filled my heart with anger and self pity,I clinched my fist in ire and kept walking.

As I reached the old wooden bridge connecting the city to my town,A breeze hit me and I stopped at the center of the bridge and turned round to see the water gushing underneath my feet,The dark water of the river felt as if it was calling to me,Reminding me of the days I used to spend hours and hours by its side.

I stepped over the fence and like a reed i was waving between the north and the south winds.For the one last leap I took embracing the cold waters.

The river currents drifted my floating body to the bank of the river,Where everyone stood staring at me lying lifeless .And a young lad in the crowd said,”I know him,He is an alcoholic.He might have tripped in the river and died, Hearing that I smiled for one last time before my soul left my body.

Faith

Like a shadow I followed u around.

like a moth to the fire ,i have burned up my wings.

with ever breath I took,i whispered ur name 

My pleas,my prayers they are all to u.

Yours are the last words I want to hear

Ur sight Is wat my aching eyes desire.

For the world above n the world beyond ur arms are wat I seek to travel along.

Some what

​oh yes,I know you will never response to my eager epistle-a-day.

yet,Being a slave to my pen and ink,I must write,Come wat may.

                                                         ~Avi

DEATH

On a distant land in the dark heart of the forest, sailing on a wooden boat she was humming the songs of the older gods.

    Slicing through the waters of the long stagnant lake, she was rowing her boat to land of the living,even the wind howling between the trees came to a still when it passed by her.sailing through the lake she passed by the hut of the old grumpy farmer ,she turned  her boat and with a thud it hit the shore.

As she walked to the hut there was a calmness in the forest and her footsteps on the dried leaves were the loudest of the noises that can be heard.she entered the hut through the recently painted wooden door.

 As she stepped in, the creaking sound of the wooden chair on the floor got her attention,she say the old man sitting near the fire lost in his thoughts.The old man turned around n with indignation he said”wat took u so long,I thot u won’t be coming even for this winter ,n look I even repaired the door it was getting cold in here.

Death: aren’t u scared of me?

The old man stood up and walked to the self pouring himself a glass of wine. he said,”no I m not, I have seen many a brave man melt like wax in ur hands,they say u are the most beautiful of the gods creation.

The old man sat on his chair n took a sip from his glass n placed it on the side of the chair, never to raise it again.

Thought’s 

Very often do I stumble upon the thot.

wat if God was just another of the imaginary friends of a kid in despair..

 


Epitaphs 

​As my sight blurred,  For one last tym I looked up at the blue of the skies 

       n I knew it  was the tym n the day they wud inscribe on my tomb…so with a final epitaphs..

                            ‘NO REGRET’ 

  it’s time to leave.

The Dream Realm

I was in my hometown last week,even though I try to avoid my old friends,I got caught up with some, and they started talking bout the old times.

And in the middle of one of those long lost memories, your name came up. They told me about the guy you’re now going out with, and I did my best fake laugh  and with a deep breath said ,” I was so over you. That it was never even real between you and I” Obviously not for you. Right?

And as my fingers reached the end of the strand of hair I was trying to fix, my hand got stuck and our memories flooded my mind. I didn’t have the courage to ask them about your boyfriend because i know he must be everything ,I could never be. Everything I’m never going to be.

I used to think I was over you but even now, there are some songs I can never listen to without feeling a knot in my chest and a lump in my throat. There are still some roads I take on purpose and a picture of you waving back at me flashes before my eyes. Your face in the crowded market and I don’t know what I was looking for. There are still some nights I cannot sleep without replaying every little thing you ever said to me Goddamit.

And now I know, rocking his old chair on the wooden floor why my grand dad told me that you can never really forget your first heartbreak.

 even though I swore to myself that I’d never write about you, it’s 2 AM and this is about u

A love for life

“And don’t forget the roses”. Those were the word that kept ringing in my ear as I left my home, n as I was on my way  for the whole tym I kept checking the side pocket of my coat as I might not drop the ring somewhere.

As I was getting closer to the place i have booked for my date with her,I was getting nervous n would look at my watch for no reason.

” I need to be there before her just to check all the arrangements ,I want this to be perfect”I murmured to myself.

As I reached there, The cool breeze ,The sunset ,The lights everything seem so perfect.As I was looking at the sky which was now changing its colour my mind was clouded with her thoughts ,how she became the most important part of my lyf ,she was the one I could fall in love with for the next everyday of my lyf.

I heard a car approaching from a distance  the sound of the car was becoming loud as it came close n so was my heartbeat.The car stopped and I was staring at it,she stepped out and my heart felt as if  no more was it in its place,my eyes widened and  for a sec I forgot to breath,n I was pinned to the very ground I stood.she looked at me as if asking how she was lookin n I like a stupid was staring at her without saying a word.she smiled for how crazy I was acting.

Before I can understand anything I was on the ground on my knees,staring in her eyes I asked”will u marry me”.

She stood there as if a flood of emotions have just hit her.Trying to find the words before her heart would  explode of the happyness she said” for a million times I will”
