Dreams...and Mirage

The world, indeed, is like a dream and the treasures of the world are an alluring mirage! Like the apparent distances in a picture, things have no reality in themselves, but they are like heat haze.

Are you tired of running? Are you tired of dreaming dreams which would never become a reality? It's so natural. isn't it? Because these are really not dreams are they? We don't run behind dreams. We chase a mirage. 

You know, dreams are beautiful because a mirage is. If you have ever been fortunate enough to look at a mirage in reality, you would know how fabulous it looks from a distance, and you think that you finally reached your destination. You go near it, and a little nearer, and a little.....then you reach and there is  N.O.T.H.I.N.G.

Dreams make you feel exactly the way. They come to you, when you are in your most serenely state, getting a sound sleep. There is a slight hint of smile and a calmness on your eyes. Yes, you are dreaming a happy dream. You are far away, in a distant land, free from all pains, people you always wished to be with, a place where you always wanted to go, a life that you always wanted to have.....

Then you wake up, with a crystal teardrop flowing down from your glistening eyes, satisfied. Ah! But you find yourself back in the tragic reality. Bang! 

You think, you wish that your dream carried you on a little while more, you were enjoying it. Truly. But it was just another mirage trying to take you through the journey, a memorable the end of which you would find yourself in nothing but million grains on sand. That's it! 

Then again, it's all part of our lives. We dream splendid ones, and cry over them, because they always were, are and will be in our subconscious, nowhere else. 

Just like a mirage.....

Into The Oblivion

"Blue oblivion, largely lit, smiled and smiled at me..." - William R. Bennet. 

We always talk of memories. Memories that break us, walk with us, and of course make us. We live with them and relive them time and again. 

So, what do we not do?

Have you ever thought about the things that do not run in our minds anymore? Things of the past that have gone into oblivion? During the course of our years, we think and act on all those  moments that we remember. We cry and laugh over them. We are deeply saddened about what is not there with us, and yet we feel heavy with the burden of memories that we carry around with us. 

But, if you think again you will realize that there are moments, time and people we have completely forgotten. Things that once were, and people who were once there in our lives. But not anymore....I am talking about those times of our lives when we had been hurt and shattered. But the funny part is, with time we moved on right? Have you ever thought why? How? 

It's simple. We forget things. We set them aside. We are human beings. It's in our nature to turn our back to the moments which have hurt us tried to destroy us. We don't understand this because it's so completely unintentional. 

And we are happy. It is now that is important to us. Not what has happened in the past. Past is darkness. Past is a never-ending canopy.

Just like we 'lead' our lives with memories in the bag. In the same way 'live' our lives storing the past into the oblivion. Burying them deep into the sea never to resurface again.....

Isn't it?

A Lie In Every Truth...Someone Knows It

"Our sincerest laughter. With some pain is fraught" - P.B Shelly 

So you wear a mask,  and you carry it everywhere you go. To fool people. It's so easy to do it right? Because everyone around you does it too. 

You think it will end someday, but something new starts afresh making you even more tired than before. Some new lies, those lies which are buried deep inside every truth that one tries to speak. So you say something and you want to believe it yourself. You want the world to believe it too. But...Oh Shit! You are caught. Uh huh, don't worry, no one is really bothered to catch you by the collar. It's you who is caught in your own act when you are standing in front of the mirror and looking at your self, staring in those eyes...thinking "dude, whom are you fooling". Be careful, there is someone else who stares at them too.

You talk and you talk, to hide the feelings inside you. The real feelings. You go on jabbering to hide the unidentified pain, thinking no one is going to notice. Thinking, you actually get away with what you speak. The truth?? Well, no not exactly.....

You can never run away from your loved one. They are invariably going to pluck out the lies in every truth that you try and utter. Did it happen with you? It has happened to me....several times....I have lost count basically.

You laugh, at least you try and give your best shot to make it sincere every time..but Ooopss! Hang on, there is this person sitting in front making you realize the 'lie' within.

While you are happy fooling the world around you ask questions to yourself. Millions of them, but you can never really find one answer to any of them. You go on consoling yourself that one day things will change and you will be happy. 

Yes, you will be only when you let that one person take control of your life. 

There are times when you are sick of truths. Just sick of even facing them because you know they are blended with lies, lies and lies.You feel so fatigued that you don't want to talk anymore, just want to hide, hibernate somewhere people would never find you out....But hey, you have to act as if everything is just so fine with you right?? 

Can you hide it from that person in your life? Don't even try to.

Respect, trust and love that person back for knowing you when the world still finds you a friendly stranger they met on the road.

That's where your happiness lies. That's what love is all about. That's your ray of hope.
