you and i

when we sat looking at the fan today and listening to that new song,i quite enjoyed the silence between us.it wasn't like those electronic silences we face over the telephone at the dead of night-in an alien city.this silence was like us-breathing,growing and wrapping us in a spell under which no word survived.
and finally when you said that we need to talk,i wanted to run to you and tell you that there's no need anymore.but then,i didn't run because i was there-right next to you,passing on my stories to you through my fingers.and i watched you turn my prosaic stories into songs with quaint tunes...
i watched,i moved and i saw-but never spoke.because you know what,this silence will keep us alive,and we'll be fine without those words which do very little except creating noise.we'll do fine with your quaint little tunes and my inane stories.
and thank you for days like today...
days which bring sunshine in days of thunder.

yes,you, him and you both needed that silence.. much much much more than words.. i know you've gone through a lot, and there will more of those stormy nights.but there's comfort in the fact that he will be there with you during those days of thunder,spreading the warmth of smile-sunshines.
:) wish you both all the bestest. :D

P.S : i know i sound like a despo.. but i miss noisy,wordy fights and i wish someone would listen to and comprehend my silence.. :)

hugs.

kuch na kaho..kuch bhi na kaho....
samay ka yeh pal thamsa gaya hain....

sounds of silence,or you say it best when you say nothing at all might sound hackneyeed here.
but that's what it is,really.
i loved how you said that whatever we say otherwise reduces to noise.
