Free Fall : Short Story


First published in Ginger Chai you ,Me ,We

The gorge looked breathtakingly beautiful from the precarious edge of the rock.

A tingling sensation ran through his spine.

Vodka or Vertigo ?

His brain stopped registering.

Soon he was plummeting earthwards.

A deep vertical fall. Fear gripped him.

Insane rush of blood flooded his body.

An altered state of consciousness.

Slowly his eyes closed. A sharp pain slashed his chest.

Thud.

One long drop and stop.

His friends watched in horror.

He had never watched a 3D movie before.

He loved the rain and the cool breeze. Lying down on his back he watched the drama unfold in the sky.

The silence was uncanny.

Murky mist seeps through the very core of his being.

His thoughts  frozen in time.

Memories closed in like a blizzard of snow.

He shivered.

The trees, their heads bowed, cried ceaselessly.

The railway track was bone chilling.

How long?  He wondered.

Suddenly the tracks hummed.

Flash Fiction : Veiled Heart


You veiled your heart from me.

Yet I managed to enter your heart, silently on cat feet.

I came to steal all the sorrow, pain, hurt and suffering from you.

I even emptied my heart of my own burdens to make space for yours.

However, I realized you had buried them some place else, somewhere beyond my reach.
I felt pained and let down. I had a right to them as much as you had, may be more.

Still despite of all your silence and all your efforts to hide within your so-called shell, my heart found a way to yours.

You even dressed it in rags and made it beg.

It kept beating at the door of your heart, unconditionally without questioning.

Every time you try to kill it, like a phoenix it rises again from its ashes.

The slightest breeze of love that is part of a bigger scheme of things blows sometimes even the heaviest of veils away.

Do not attempt to fight what is part of your destiny, have faith.

Sometimes we lose time and by the time we realize what we have lost it is too late.

As he stood by her grave, her words kept haunting him. A tear slipped through his soft brown eyes.
