Like

Company
Like finding that extra pair of socks,
just when you thought
you had to make do with dirty ones again.

Patience
Like two people, drenched in the rain,
looking at each other over a plate of noodles,
wondering how long the drive home will take.

Graceful
Like peeling away her skin tight denims,
in the cold dark of the night,
trembling
at the feel her warm skin against your own.

Conversation
Like perfect strangers,
comfortably entwining their minds around
intangible artifacts,
carefully constructing tales that blur reality.

Progress
Like too many rainchecks for an offer made.

Well well well, what have we here !! I haven't seen this side of you before! The first thing that leaps to mind when I think of you is that post about a haircut and the way you had ended it. "Not if you gave me lapdance, sugar" or something to that effect.

And now, NOW, THIS!! Gasp!! This is breathtakingly beautiful!

To everyone who things this post is good, nice, email worthy and 'breathtakingly beautiful', I say thank you.

To everyone (alright, just eM) who wants to know what's going on in my real life, I say, once I find a way to wrap reality in suitably obscure, anonymizing constructs, I will talk about it. Till then, more such to follow ;)

abstract, anonymizing constructs have the ability to leave the reader in a state of mind where he/she is free to make his/her own interpretation of it. "real" words, on the other hand, always leave the reader with an absolute image, thus taking away the essence of mysticism. but they give the reader a definite picture... so thats a good thing abt them...
ur post was very nice. the interpretation that i made of it told me that i should urge you to compile such writings and rhetorics. its always nice to have them stacked up at one place. :)
