Somehow, I like this place - a small rectangular area with plenty of tall trees. It’s actually rare in this crowded, suffocating and compact city full of fabricated mortals. The idea of slow breeze, pure air and having small random conversation with you, makes me happy.
Know what? Wait! Let me tell you a secret – It was this exact place where I actually fell for you!
Now, for sure, upon reading this your reaction will be – “Dude! WTF? You have technically lost it!” But believe me; I am being totally honest with that statement. And yes, I have a small request. Can you please stop addressing me as ‘dude’? This word lags both the affection and friendliness. Also, in my native small town, it is generally used by the ones who proclaim being avant-garde but are nothing more than shit. To be true, ‘bro’ is another word which qualifies in the same ‘fad’ category. Thankfully, you don’t address me using that.
Anyways, I should come back to the point. As I said, that park means a lot to me. Primarily, because that is the place where I was stumped by your simplicity, your innocence and by an innate kid which is right there residing within you. That was the place where I have had few long conversations, which unanimously qualify as the best which I ever had post shifting to this city. In fact, if you would recall, I even asked you out one night when I came back from the park – such is the kind of effect which that place has on me. For the records though, I was rebuffed and it is not at all a good memory but since it was going well with the context, I am deliberately quoting it.
Today, I went back again to the same park while sipping a fruit juice and enjoying the high bass of the decent music (Hindi, of course) through my sexy in-ear headphones. I also noticed that due to the rains, trees have grown in size and greenery has multiplied. However, regardless of the music, greenery and the slow breeze, I felt suffocated and crowded by the fabricated mortals. And you know what, that was the moment when I felt that I fell for you again. Damn! You would curse me more now. But trust me, that moment I re-realized that it is actually you who is the real difference. It is you who is the real differentiator.
Now, if you are still confused, let me put it bluntly.
The idea behind such a long haphazard passage was just to let you know that:
Dear friend, howsoever weird I had been lately, howsoever long texts I had been sending obnoxiously, please ignore them and get back soon.
P.S: I miss you.
