Chronicles of a Mermaid

By // 2 comments:

Down the waves of Mediterranean
From the blissful eden land underneath
Went forth a mermaid
Above the trauma of the surface.
Taking hold of my hand
Salvaging me from the swirl of ogre
She led my mislaid consciousness 
Into her arms of trustiness.
In the blushed state borne in my smile
I prompted a question
Are you the one, the princess Silken?
In the strobe of divine light she egressed
She carried me somewhere
Out of blindness I wasn’t aware.
Who is she?
Is she the one my voyage was meant for?
...
My lips folded, and eyes partially lit
Tried to whoop the acquaintance 
My senses recollected bit by bit
But not before she stooped
And caressed her nose with mine.
The heiress of those sweetest smiles,
Yes! The lonely fairy she was;
The Princess of the sea!
The sea which inhabits all variants of life
So does she patronize my life sedately.
...
In thorns of seclusion, in deprivation from love,
My heart promised me of your existence
I never paused for a moment 
Being affected in perils of aloofness.
I have sailed through the Pacific
The bedlam of dilapidated emotions
Just to meet you; to be with you hereafter…
Sealed in her kiss
She blew life into me, heal to my injuries
And the storm calmed into bliss.
Entwined in embrace of love
Together we departed for the Promised Land.

How clearly the emotions we remember, of those frightened steps that were hesitant to move ahead. That was the day when few timid hearts obliged with immense aspirations consoled themselves, and accepted what they ultimately arrived at. That was the first day when we entered our engineering college…

I am in final year of my B-tech now. And for me, there has been a series of learning and experiences outside my textbooks. I know this would be true for my immediate seniors too. They ended their terms in our college after their completion of final semester, and have left us alone. I had been attached emotionally with some, and tied friendliness with many.  The most crucial thing I am going to miss now is I won’t be hanging around them explaining peculiar thoughts and curiosities that pet in my mind. Few things no one understands, and I never explain them to everyone. I will miss them who truly understood what I used to explain. :D

Whatever be your college's status, whatever curse you prize your college with, at the end you are going to miss it. I have seen them… not just through the moistness that prevailed in their eyes but through the unexplainable silence rooted somewhere deep inside. Emotions pouring through eyes are not as powerful as the silence is, and that too creased in a smile. Unexplainable situations, I know I would have to witness myself too. The one which is a year far, I know that will get closer in blink of an eye. At the end, we people turn out to be so dependent on the ambiance that prevail consistently in our hostel. When back to home, we tend to stick to the same routine, we tend to find the same people. Who is going to bang on to our doors shouting aloud names connecting them with girls in the nearest girl’s hostel, who will be there to quarrel for a puff of cigarette? Friendship is the last string that keeps you attached in your memories despite of truck load conspiracies you got to confront in your four years.

I won’t point out names of my seniors specifically because almost everyone had been very special to me in one way or the other. I got to learn something from them which awakened me from sort of darkness in different realms. Now me being in the final year, I take the responsibility to support and elate my juniors. I have plans for this year. I hope I will be able to execute them efficiently. And for my seniors, I wish them good luck for their lives ahead. And as Robert Frost had said, ‘In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on’; so lets move on, and pledge to work even harder in our future and march ourselves towards excellence.

Please do stay in touch!
