It rained again today.
I was thinking deeply about you,
while staring at a rain puddle.
“May be you are nicer than how I find you,
may be this relationship can still work”, I kept wondering.
Impervious to the reality around,
my eyes were completely glued to the puddle, as it gave me comfort and an obsession,
just like your love.
I was fascinated by the circles formed when the rain drops hit the puddle,
just like how my heart starts to pound
with your gentle touch.
May be the ripples that were formed, meant a new beginning each time,
like a new chance?
May be our distance was like a ripple effect,
caused due to the tiny droplets that we kept ignoring?
I could see those patterns.
They were too similar to differentiate between, but had grown each time.
They were like your habitual procrastination
to avoid spending time with me.
My mind had almost drowned in those deep thoughts,
until a car swashed through it,
splashing the muddy water onto me
and ironically, clearing all my muddled thoughts.
The rain suddenly stopped,
which had earlier blurred my eyes.
But, now when I look around,
I find my eyes lucid and lighter,
like the beautiful clear sky above.
