"An asylum, Ms ……"

Filed under: Sojourn — Tags: — Raja @ 9:43 PM


A south-facing window. An intimate afternoon lying on the idle field outside.
Every sudden breeze blows the fragments away. I collect them again and put back in my mind. From morning to dusk. They close the window at sundown. I don’t see the moon, but I can see
her
in my mind.
I’ve told them. It’s my world. The entire field – the afternoon sits on it outside the window. The trees don’t talk to me. I don’t like them. They are not in my world. I’ve told them.
The afternoon and I like acting. Yesterday I was acting myself and the afternoon was acting afternoon. It was fun! The day before, I was acting myself again. The afternoon acted as
her
. It said, I’m supposed to act like a villain. I wonder! Would a villain end up here? Is a villain supposed to cry, ever?!
The afternoon says I become pensive when I listen to songs. I cry when I read that book. I writhe in pain when I see those sketches and letters and photos. I laugh at the afternoon. Wonder what’d evening say ’bout my pain if it could see me; once they forget to close the window some day!
The person in the adjacent cell is singing ‘(hindi) woh aake pahlu mein aise baithe …’
