The clearing...



Twigs crack under my feet as he leads me on...

Past the desolate woods... deeper... deeper... 

A clearing appears... and a river...

I move to the edge... breathing it in...

The water is so calm... the woods so silent..

I touch the water... soft as silk...

The touch disturbs its sanctity and ripples appear... i am ashamed...

"It's okay", he says. A warm sensation on my shoulder... "I am here".

A smile creeps its way onto my lips...

"Forever?", i ask, suddenly breathless. 

The wind blows his whisper by my ears..."Forever".

I touch the water once again, the tip of my finger prodding it...

It is patient... ripples no more....

I am puzzled. I turn and look up at him....

He laughs... comes close to my ear and whispers...

"The water is jealous"

"Why?"

"Because it won't be around as long as i will be"

"And so he said, "I am fed up with you so decided to put a full stop to our relationship and I know you don't know how to swim..." With these final words he gives her a gentle push. There ends the not so famous wolf's life"

(inspired from the song Vaarai Nee Vaarai)

"Because it won't be around as long as i will be"//

You are like Chinna Kalaivaanar Vivekh.. A social message at the end which others failed to crack.. If we waste water and because of global warming, it wont be around for long!!


And please i do ask you, keep our visits and romances in secret.. Don publish it in blog.. Already my girl friends EMMA and VANESSA are red-eyed knowing I took you to the river.. So.. :P
