My Friend asked!

My friend asked me one day, “Hey! I have a question for you. Tell me what is love?”

I was not at all ready for this query, but I tried to answer, “Listen my friend, there is no certain definition of love. It could be a flake or just a brush of air, it could be something in blue, it could be the yellow roses, it could be the first camera from the first salary, it could be breaking that camera from anger, it could be standing under the sun for hours, it could be making excuses why couldn’t be early, it could be the roadside snacks, it could be a dinner at sky restaurant, it could be hanging on the bus because no seats were available, it could be hiring a SUV from the rentals, it could be spending the last hundred on CP chicken, it could be the carelessness of the feelings of buying, it could be buying a Ray-Ban sunglass, it could be giving it away for mere prices, it could be buying a modem for the first time, it could listening to those inequality lecture for hours, it could be buying tickets for the Cineplex in advance to book the finest seats, it could be the complaining that those seats were not good enough, it could be investing time into someone who never realised how things were too smooth, it could be those taunts of having too much free time, it could be working 24 hours straight to make the wedding pretty, it could be getting the cold shoulder for being poorer, it could be having one good picture among thousand of pictures, it could be that smile on that picture, it could be that blank eyes of that picture, it could be saying why couldn’t the saree were held properly, it could be that going away where no one said goodbye, it could be saying goodbye with tears when no one was looking, it could be that empty street after everyone went home, it could be the sound of weeping after.
My friend, it could be a lot more, maybe a little bit extra from the earlier one.”

I am a dreamer. Always dream to have a new and beautiful life. I always try to live happily ever after. There are no bad vibes in me. To me, the world is the most beautiful and honest place to live in. "The bad is not bad until we make it bad" and "Smile is the beauty of life", are two of my most favorite sentences of all time. I live believing in them. I am proud to be me and love being me all the time.
