Unwritten

The saddest story ever told is the one that hasn’t been written yet. A dark tale of a heart that weeps, its blood red nostalgic tears seeping and staining the dirty white snow in which it lays. Sitting atop once fond memories that now lie buried deep below this frozen ground. The cold winter wind moans in grief, sweeping furiously through the landscape before pausing reverently at this mound. This graveyard of memories, I visited it today. Bringing flowers, I placed my hand on my heart that weeps nostalgically, not once daring to uncover the memories from their burial ground, lest they haunt me. Not once daring to tell the saddest story ever told.

Deepu said...

nicely written, I second you on that.
But the one should be living in the present right? Btw the question is to myself. :)

where are you?

I agree. Sometimes its best to let the saddest story die it's death and be buried in the grave forever. But, before that happens it kills you slowly and continuously - bit by bit.

Yes, I am back. And this time with a name and a face and an identity :)

@Inner vision: Thank you. :)

@Shooting star: Thanks :)

@Deepu: Yup. One should live in the present. But every once in a while, the past demands to be reflected upon.

@Alok: Right here. Just haven't had the motivation to write in a really long time.

@Abhishek: What a pleasant surprise! :) I'm glad you've decided to write again. And this time without a pseudonym. You're still very characteristically you. I knew it was you the minute I read the comment.

glad to see you back. You know, even I was away from the blog-world for quite sometime due to countless reasons but then I am back. Hopefully will remain active like earlier.

Hey, please give some splash to your photo-blog, travel-blog and all the blogs :). Please!

Have a good day and a wonderful weekend.

@Alok: Glad to see you back too! :) ...I got carried away by work and all those other inconsequential things that make life appear too busy to do the things that you really want to do...like write. But I am going to try to make more time for blogging again. I do miss it.

@abhishek: I like your new blog...I tried to leave a comment but looks like there're some glitches with the word verification and it wont let me leave a comment.
