When, as a toddler we'd taken our first step it wasn't a normal one. Our knees shook, our confidence had started to build up and then fall apart, like a house of cards. We fell a few times, hurt ourselves, yet we got up and now, years later, we walk properly, except when we're drunk, don't we? Those falls are the reason we take our steps in a normal way, today. Now, when we don't stick to the falls, why do we hang onto people who do us no good? We know how they are. They come in, take a look at the apples, appreciate the quality and then upset the apple cart. And then, they leave with a smile on their face.
Why does this dil have to perform a "dil hai ke maanta nahi" stint? Why do we push ourselves into thoughts? To call or not to call, to initiate or not to initiate, to text or not to text? These kinda thoughts do bharat natyam in our minds. We check our phones in frenzy, expecting, hoping that it may show a notification of a text by that one person. Moreover, we don't even know if it'll stand the thunderstorm, intact, unharmed! Things change, people change, relationships change. Then why do we hope and pray? We know how messy it can get, yet we like to jump in!
Even I have hung on and stuck to relationships, till the time they were completely ruined. Even my heart doesn't know any better. Even I have made mistakes. Even I have prayed for things to go normal. I guess, we strive for it only 'cause its forbidden!
PS : I'm sorry I've been missing from the scene! In the end, life has to happen and things take a back seat! I can't promise to be regular, but I can only wish! :D
PPS : Too much of ant-shant na? I guess, even that has to happen! :P
PPPS : I HAD to share this picture only 'cause it gives hope! :D
