Story of two Dark Minds


When you find that one wavelength that can produce resonance, your infinite wandering comes to an end. It had almost happened to him. They'd loved to change their worlds but their dark minds didn't know what to do. So, they could only leave it up to a fiction...

It was a tinkle and he turned his head;
There was no rolling coin, no clashing bangles-
There was only vacuum, no wind to tease his chime;
Yet there was a tinkle from not so faraway land-
There could be theories and no slightest doubt;
Ears could betray but this wave had hit his mind-
Of course, he knew his mind was very very dark...

He saw a blue alien through his glass door
Gazing at him with no wonder-
It was a 'she' and she had breasts
Plumpier than ladies he knew,
Perhaps to encase her mercury heart;
And of course, her mind too was very very dark...

Love stories touch our heart sad ones move our soul-
This one had no genre, what good two aliens could do?
They sketched, they sang, till sun went down and
He saw her spaceship in the illusive twilight sky-
Like a mad buffalo he ran and broke the glass
To find none and laugh his lungs out one last time;
Even words can't give a fate to a story so goddamn dark!

May be, they could leave it up to a change... but they chose the easy way. Sometimes the price is too high and other times you're just a miser.

  3. Of the seven billion plus people in this world blessed are those who find someone like that. Blessed but not lucky enough when they have to be mute spectators watching the only one they think was custom made for them fly away.

    Loved every word of it, really!
    It makes me sad and my heart heavy, I wish and I hope that the spaceship comes back and when it does he is back to his wandering self. Can't help being little selfish here! :-(

    1. Come on shruti, this is just a fiction, so nothing to make your heart heavy for :-)
      Thanks a lot for reading these lines so closely... Please keep motivating always.

    2. Yup, will do that. Not at all an issue, Anunoy Samanta. I might have just got carried away, reading your fiction. Hope everything is good at your end. Tc.

  4. I know it's not possible but I hope everyone gets their "happily ever after" - be it with a person they love or with their ownself. Everyone deserves it, irrespective of dark or light heart. :)
