The dark road

The road dazzled with lights moving
A broken divider lay in the dark
Words few hung from it
Covered with dusty dreams and salty water

Scared, I checked for mine in my ears
Different these were, completely alien
I Picked up the carefree smirk, that never left
A cold wind blows, a warm assurance brought

A familiar voice, the naughty laughter
A split second, the deafening silence.
A thousand ifs, the merciless truth
A rode dazzled, the divider broke

    Any words I write will not do justice to the emotions this post reverberates with.

    Nailed it. Too beautiful to express.

        I am also doing good. And I need you to recommend some books. I desperately need the suggestions of a ferocious reader 🙂

        OHMYGOD! Do you realise what you just did? 😛
        You made the mistake of asking me to suggest you books.
        *screams internally out of happiness*

        Anyway.
        I’ll try and act normal about this.
        (But hey, I LOVE to suggest books and talk about books and be around books and smell books and …)
        *sigh*

        But from the bottom of my heart I request you to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
        Now before you scowl at me for suggesting you to read a 200 years old romance let me tell you, Pride and Prejudice has an extensive number of male followers and almost all of them said they loved book though they initially thought it was a girly book.

        Behold my insane fictional rant, after I finished reading Pride and Prejudice I made it my life’s fictional mission to make as many guys read the gem of a book as possible. The reason being, Mr. Darcy.

        I won’t go into furiously rhapsodizing over him. But I want you to read it, PLEASE. And then learn everything from Mr. Darcy and then treat your girl (or future girl) how he treated Elizabeth and when your girl swoons over you come thank me and then please preach it to the men you know.

        Haha I ordered it before replying. Thank you! But I somehow hate to preach what is right. So except that part, I’ll do what is suggested here by you😁

        And speaking of interesting narrators (in your other comment), have you read the book thief? It is gold!

        I’m sorry, I hope I didn’t cross a line. But Pride and Prejudice really is not entirely about romance. It’s about basic values and chivalry and manners.
        But I’m also warning you that if you don’t like romance at all, like you puke at the very mention of it, then please don’t read it or else you might curse the life out of me. 😛

        Also, second book that I’d like to suggest you would be ‘Moonstone’ by Wilkie Collins. It’s a suspense/thriller.
        See I’m not a boring romantic nerd? Pfftt!

        Oh oh and another one.
        It’s called ‘Palace of Illusions’ by Chitra Bannerjee.
        It’s a very fresh take on The Mahabharata where the story is being dictated by Draupadi herself.
        It’s a very popular bestseller. 🙂

        If I were you I would put it this way : “I just made your days like I made mine with those books” 😉
