Time Travel3 mins 215 3 mins 215
I am a leaper of the past, a time traveler. They say time waits for none and once passed is forever locked in our eyes, soul, heart, and memories. Past has contained all those experiences which scare us, terrifies us, brings a stream of joy in our veins and mesmerizes us with its beautiful experience.
It was 22nd July 2017 and it was raining heavily the raindrops slide the rooftop and touched my hands, reminding me of a precious weird and confused person. He was the light of somebody’s present and darkness of somebody’s past. Fortunately, he was my bright present that glittered all aspects of my life.
There and then pooped up a notification and it was his message starting with a “sorry”. That sorry flooded my head with several thoughts, and then the paragraph read a beautiful message narrating his feelings about our bond. I could hear his voice reading that message aloud.
By a wave of joy and excitement in me I jumped and was jumping in excitement when I saw him standing behind me laughing like idiots. He asked me out and it was our first official date, he did all that I loved, ate only what I liked and danced like idiots on the road. I still remember I asked him to bring me a chocolate ice cream from my favorite parlor and he toured half the city to get it for me.
Without even realizing we were falling for each other’s madness and perfect imperfections. The date was proceeding like a dream until he told me about his admission in his dream college which was 12000 km away from me. My world shattered for a second and the dream castle collapsed but with a smile, I congratulated him with a promise that you were, are and will always be my light!
Time passed it was his departure day, I didn’t go to see him off for last time as I was unable to bid a goodbye to my beautiful present... But maybe that was my last opportunity to feel him, touch him because after that he never contacted me, even after trying for 1000 times I couldn’t reach him. He was 12000 km away yet so close as he was right here in my heart. It’s been 2 years, I haven’t felt the essence of his smile, his touch, and his presence but I will be waiting for my beautiful present keeping his smile, memories, love in my heart. I know he will be alright shining somebody’s life making somebody laugh making memories and living a shimmering present.
I will wait for my light until my last breath with all the love in my heart!
