The night that should have been.


A few stars glimmered. Faint traces of thick black clouds covered up the already faded moon light. He stood still. Staring at the different shades of black. As the day calls it, what is left, are shades of black. Below his feet stood the depths of the cliff. Below his heart stood the shadows of the past. Below his eyes stood the images of the new found meaninglessness. Below his mind, lied emptiness, not longing to be filled in. 

His head refused to look up. Somehow, he felt comfortable looking down. The voices of the past did upset him. The voices of the future haunted him. And he was deaf in the present. A thousand whispers asked him to do a thousand things. A thousand hands refused to show up. A thousand eyes shut themselves. A thousand hearts refused to beat.

The cliff of unknown depth showed up, as the clouds below cleared up. All he need to do is to have another step. 

And then, I woke up.

Errmm.... having suicidal dreams, are we?

Weren't you going to go on a long, long road trip?

well, the road trip should be in April. Dont have a month to spare these days.

Anyway, driving down to bangalore today :) 385 kms, forest and the ghat. That will make it a small long drive :)

But then, did you know that the slight change in the way you mix the cocktail can change theme in your dreams?? trust me, it does !!

The above comment got me more intrigued than the post!

Note to self: Must try different cocktails and jot down dreams

Hope the ride is awesome. I love the roads connecting Kerala to Bangalore. Nothing like the western ghats.

If a cocktail gives you such horrible nightmares, you better not have it..and dont dare it call it a dream either..

Dreams are supposed to be good...even if the reality of life is not so.....

isnt the dream part too much of a cliche?

@june & CD

yeah, weird, but cocktails do give me weird dream patterns.

Every drug has a side effect !!

I do dream weird every night. And this one actually happened.
