Silent Conversations



After what felt like eons, he finally held her hand. Gently at first, just the tip of his fingers caressing her fingers. Gradually, with every puff of his cigarette, his hold on her hand became more assured. And they sat like that, for what seemed like hours... 

She wished the evening would never end. To sit under the shade of a benevolent tree, letting their coffee go cold, and rain gently cascading from the leaves of the tree... Saying nothing, doing nothing. A beautiful, unbroken silence. As if the silence passed on a secret understanding between them. And they sat like that, holding hands, each afraid to let go. He wondered what she was thinking. That sublime, unfathomable pleasantness, which spread in his heart,did she feel it too? And all this while, she tried to read his eyes, read his heart. She saw a deep happiness there... and something else she could not understand. 

And still it rained, and they sat where they were, cocooned in their world of unsurity and delight, of  silent conversations and a feeling of nothingness...

Reading this piece brought back faint memories of a once flaming love; the warmth that motionlessly grows in your heart came to me when I read this. I miss that feeling, so thank you. :)

Rain Girl said...

@Nomora: Perhaps its time to fall in love again? :D that is a wonderful feeling, though.. the first flush of love.. <3

Nomora said...

Yes it is a wonderful feeling :)
It seems difficult though to move out of that comfort zone after recovering from a broken heart... I sound like a whiner right there, god.
