Heart vs Mind

“Am I allowed to dream….?” One day, when eyes dares to ask.

“No!” ordered the Mind.

The heart contracted and expanded swiftly…

Why?” heart argued.

The heart had all the means to ask the question, but the mind was not obliged to answer.

Why, Why, Why!

Heart bumped his head for a long time when he got the silent sympathetic answer.

“Because I don’t want you to suffer!” mind whispered.

“So am I not suffering now?”

“You are a cruel person. You don’t know the meaning of emotion. You can never understand the dreamland woven by the eyes can be accomplished by the power of you and me…Why don’t you realize?” , Heart shouted in dismay.

“I understand but don’t you know that not all the dreams are fulfilled? And what a disaster breaks off when the dreams are shattered?

And don’t you know the bigger the dream shattered, the bigger the disaster is??

The more devastated the body is…?

The more vacant the eyes are..?”

 

(Eyes had started damping their lashes throughout the cross argument)

“Why are you becoming the enemy of yourself?”

Why are doing the things, reason less! Without any logic! Crazy? Isn’t it?”,Mind scolded.

The Master,The Mind was like handling the dais, eager to convince the Heart with all the tools and weapons of logical speech skills.

“Would you like to give me a single logical reason?”

“LAME EXCUSES!” Heart was now furious at his insult.

“O you chicken! Why don’t you shortly say that you are a coward…? You are frightened that’s only the matter! Frightened of the approach of the dreams…You simply, have not the capabilities to face the failures!”

“Hey! You are blaming me now. Its you…who will be disappointed at the failures…Not me!

Its you…who will do care for all the feelings…who will take calamities to injure your health!

Who is not able to face realities!

Who is escaped of the bitterness of the present tense! Escaped into the imaginary future.

It’s you…and not me, my sweets!” Mind claimed.

 

Heart was speechless for a moment but eyes were still pouring the pearls out of its premises…

“This is a real world, and a real human have to live in it ‘real’ and not “imaginary’…Look through the eyes…how disgusting is the world…Entirely unmatched with your demands!”,  Mind bragged.

Eyes raised their brows and looked around. Mind was right. He was a sympathetic father now.

But eyes, like non-obedient children, were not going to lose the battle, anyways..!

“But you should remember that the eyes, who dare to dream, are the eyes that are bound to succeed” Heart gave its final shot.

Eye balls rolled themselves.

“All right!” The Mind gave up. “Do as your heart desired…but remember! At your own risk! As I know, you people are the slaves of dreams and desire of heart! You could never come to the track”

Eyes magined standing in the Mind’s shoes, and she sensed that the brain in right. So, the kind heart sacrificed his never ending dreams, for the sake of the tears of eyes…

 

And from that day on wards , the stony eyes never dared to dream again!

Coloring November Nights

 

Blue                                                            Red     

The call is near                                    The feast is near

The year is dying                                 New Year to arrive

Those Cloudy Breaths                         Those Cloudy Breaths

Freezing my mind                                Refreshing my mind

First drop of rain                                   First drop of rain

Crying your name…                              Whispering your name…

Those remind me of “my”                    Those remind me of “my”

Cruel November Nights!                      Sweet November Nights!

You asked me for time                          You asked me for time

To rekindle your life                             To rekindle your life

When I called you back                        When I called you back

So hard you denied…                           So soon you accept…

Those remind me of “my”                    Those remind me of “my”

Cruel November Nights!                       Sweet November Nights!

So I shortened my days                         so I stretched my days

And I skipped all nights                        And I stuffed all nights

Just to say “good-bye”                           Just to remember you

To “my cruel”                                        In “my sweet”

November Nights!                                 November Nights
