Beep!

Beep!

He heard a short beep coming from his mobile phone. He took it and read the text message, “Where are you?”

 

“Coming.” He replied and put the mobile phone on his lap.

 

Beep!

Another short beep got his attention. He took the mobile again and read the message, “You’re late!” with three angry-face emoji.

 

He smiled and replied, “Sorry, had work.” He kept the mobile in his hand, as he knew there soon would be another SMS.

 

Beep!

The phone singled him of another text message. He read it, “Come quickly. Got a surprise for you,” with a winking-face emoji.

 

His lips parted. He double-tapped on the upward arrow button of the mobile keyboard to reply in all caps. But before he could type the first letter, he heard,

 

BEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!

It wasn’t a short beep but a long one, and it was getting louder.

 

He never reached home.

Money:        You’re my slave. Get on your knees now!

Random Feeling

How hard it is

When the heart wrenches

For the step, you didn’t take

The decision you couldn’t make

For the one, you loved the most

“Time heals everything”

Is nothing but a delusional sin

It descends you into grieve-full hell

Things we did... And the rest, we didn’t

Life is complex. And we cannot fully comprehend its complexities.

Take time, one of the complexities of life, for example. It continuously moves forward, doesn’t take a break and never goes back. We can’t mould it according to our desires; in fact, we have to adjust our lives according to its ticking hand.

So, we can’t change what happened – or didn’t happen – in the past. We don’t know what the future holds. And the present is always slipping off from our hands.

We’ve limited time, which is continuously ending. We don’t get a full grasp of this simple fact until a long time passes. Then we are left with remorse, regret, guilt and “I wish…”

While solving a Rubik’s cube, I’ve realised that to solve more pieces, one has to go back and move the already solved pieces. In other words, to move forward, one has to go back and take a different path. Alas! This isn’t possible in real life. When we make a mistake, we have limited time to rectify it. Once that time window closes, there is nothing we can do. And we are left with lifelong remorse.

One says, “Everything happens for a reason.” But, what about things that didn’t happen? Not because those were impossible, but because we didn’t take a step. Would it be sensible to say that we didn’t act because it was meant to be?
