Daily Prompt: Audience of One: Put me together

November 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

Just saw the daily prompt title – ‘Audience of One’ – which true to its word prompted me to write.

There’s the one that takes care of me
There’s the one that challenges me
There’s the one that protects me and
There’s enough who love me
Each knows a part of me
some more, some less but never the whole
My blog so far is a piece each of most parts of me
Its an effort to piece me together
If someone out there could piece it all together
then that is my Audience of One I write in hope of.


Why is he so special?

Is it the childlike chuckle full of joy and mischief
The empathy that is real and so rare
The way he loses himself in music with abandon
The way he pours his heart out without making much of it
The way he straddles that wall between the real world and the abstract
His appreciation for language and the way he is effortlessly good at it
The ease with which he traverses all rungs of society
without losing his true self
His deep-rooted love for his lovely wife and fantastic kids
The way he makes me value myself
He is so easy to love but this is at its most beautiful now; anything more
would somehow detract its beauty.
Yet another relationship that defines me but is by itself undefined.

You Are There

I catch a glimpse of someone who looks like you
on the similarities I build an image of you
just so for a fleeting moment I can see you

I see a lush green landscape washed by rain
my heart is gripped with momentary pain
as I yearn to walk it with you

The void beside me still sticks
When I lose myself in beautiful music
Oh! Come with me on one brief musical trip

You are there in all things nice and lovely
You are the pain that adds depth to their beauty
You are the breath that I find hard to breathe
You are the yearning that never sleeps

Lets Pretend

Lets pretend our lives and past
dont exist

Lets pretend our present and promises
stand suspended

Lets pretend all that matters
is that we are meant to be

Lets pretend we are free to love
each other as just you and me

Wish we could pretend just once and see
Given a chance, what we could be

Timing’s comic

I listen to a beautiful song
mooning over you
I text you something sweet
about thinking of you
I look up and see the next piece
of lovely music floating through
And the title says – ‘Pathetique’
in fancy European English

Chuckling, I ask myself
“Pretty fitting – Don’t you think?”

It was a lovely setting, a lush green landscape with a few trees sprinkled on it. It was a pleasantly warm golden afternoon with a gentle cool breeze. She could see the plains stretch far and wide, there were no boundaries in sight except for a couple of light brown picket fences much farther away. She stood at her fence, looking longingly and trying to understand the yearning thought ‘A glimpse of freedom’.

Where Am I?
