It was quite late in the night but her sleep was still at bay. She lay still on her bed struggling to make sense of what was on her mind. Her thoughts were spread in an untangled mesh and seemed to strangle her with their vastness. In need for breath she ran out of her house right on to the street. Looking in the eyes of the bright street lights which seemed like stars in the moonless night, she thought of him. She knew it wasn’t right to dream like that but nevertheless her heart refused to hear her woes.
Still lost in struggle between her mind and heart, she heard the blaring of a horn right at her back. She turned around and to her surprise saw him there.
He was sitting in the car with his glaze fixed at her. She searched for a hidden frown on his face but couldn’t gauge none .On the contrary he had a grin of a child who seemed to have found a hidden treasure.
Her heart rejoiced, it seemed to her that she had got him back. All the years of spent with him came rolling back. He pulled open the back door of the car and gestured her to get in but she pretended not to notice. He called her again but no answer. He was just thinking if things still were wrong. When she suddenly pulled in the door and jumped into the front seat .With glee she said “I don’t think you are my cabby. And even if you think you are, I won’t let u feel like one, so keep your ambition and take off with me in my dreams.”
Driving silently into the unknown path, with him sitting right besides, her heart flew to the limitless boundaries. All the unrest had vanished in a jiff and like a child she drifted off to her dreams. Her Face revealed the story she weaved.
Come along with me to a place in my mind
No one knows where it hides
And my fantasy is flying
It’s a castle in the sky
Fairytales live in me
Fables coming from my memory
Fantasy is not a crime
Find your castle in the sky
You’ve got the key
Of the kingdom of the clouds
Open the door
Leaving back your doubts
You’ve got the power
To live another life with your love
So ride the wind
And build castles in d sky
Down on one knee...handing her a long-stemmed red rose...Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life...Love gives us a chance to unleash our dreams..!!!
