Darkness before the dawn!

The darkness was petrifying, it was cold very cold and the numbness was mystifying. All around was just barren land, emptiness was the only thing that it had, surrounded by heavy mist . She sat there in the middle, hugging herself closely, silently, the only noise was the fall of tears on the ground. Their splash was almost rhythmic, occasionally broken by the sobs in between. She sat there for a long time, waiting for the light to come through the small cracks in the faraway broken doors, the hide and seek should have ended long ago. The dark silence, was suddenly broken by the echo of distant menacing laughter, terrified she looked up from her lap, her scared eyes tried to cut through the darkness. The echo grew loud and clear, she ran away, as fast as she could, yet it kept on chasing her, enveloping her in its grip further. At last, when her legs gave away and the end was nowhere near, she sat down on the emptiness and decided to wait for the light to finally come and give her the warmth and end the evil laughter.

Yet, all she did was kept on waiting with expectant eyes as she still sat there alone wrapped in the cold and the echo of laughter as they tried to make her a part of the emptiness, take away who she was. Suddenly, the door creaked open and a ray of light made its way through only to get taken in by darkness, she stood up, weak and empty, and made her way through to the valley.

The ray of light fought valiantly and came between her path, it tried to warm her, protect her, it encircled her and she finally stopped, she shed away the cold and the laughter as they watched horrified. She walked with the light and decided to walk towards the door and break it open! For now just a crack cant end the darkness and the dawn wasn't far away ...

“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.” - Roy Craft

Simplicity for me is essentially breaking down things into smaller parts and then fitting them in the jigsaw puzzle that I designed, and once the pieces fit bingo! I understand it, it goes inside my dictionary. Somehow, whenever I encounter this word or emotion or shall we say phenomenon called love, its been difficult or tiring to simplify it, part of it has to be attributed to my amazingly learning experiences on the subject; But not taking a cynic point of view on the same and looking at it rather from a third person's or a more objective point of view, to simplify or define it has been rather complicated (pun intended), hence while reading the last Sunday's newspaper I came across this statement "In love, its all about who you feel to be in other person's presence". This makes it simplistic yet endearing in a sort of way that after a very long time, I could feel it clicking inside, it had been defined in the way that it fits all the pieces of the puzzle that were scattered. It was feeling those drops of rain on your face when you look at the sky with closed eyes and splash!! they come quickly, worth the feeling of anticipation. Perhaps the fitment is also subject to the past experiences of the same and the realization that it hasn't happened yet and the joy of having found something you thought was lost forever. Yes indeed !!!

Before I finish this post, just adding another dimension, since dimensions is another of my favorite subjects with the aspect of parallel universe but that's digressing from the point. Somehow, its always the simplistic things which in order to be more simplified result in complications which weren't required. I feel light and am floating with a lightness from an unknown feeling of just being me!
