When memories fade
And defiant hands try to escape –
When you long for a friend
In trying times that donot end.
We will meet again.
In the land of forget –me-nots
Where memory plays its have-nots –
In between the space
Where time slows down its pace,
We will meet again.
At the junction of wordplay
Where conjunctions and adjectives forfeit their play.
We will meet again.
We will meet again. Continue reading A Booked Affair

‘And they think women are over-thinkers’, I said to myself.
I must have muttered it loudly. For the old man sitting behind me made a loud coughing sound. So loud that the servers rushed to help him. It’s either that or he choked on something.
Well, that’s what goes around in this café. A quaint little desolate place where the food is mediocre and décor even worse. So nobody visits it, except jobless writers like me.
I, a freelance writer making ends meet by writing stupid good for nothing articles for agencies while my actual writing, novels, and short stories, that is, gathers dust in my memories.
‘Oh! There comes that book nerd girl’.
A 20 something young lass came in and waved at me. That’s Rimika a young and lonely college girl who often visits this café to read while gulping down some Chinese dishes. She is very fond of those Chinese delicacies. I see her eating that for lunch every day.
I have grown accustomed to this fair-skinned dreamy-eyed college girl. We never exchanged a word. How do I know her name you say? Well, that’s a long story, meant for another day. Something about her bothers me. Something in her eyes, something desolate and friendly.
She never had a friend accompanying her.
She did the same thing EVERY DAY.
