Yes, She'll be loved.

DISCLAIMER: This piece, is a work of fiction, albeit, not entirely. All characters and their names (if any), are more or less fictitious and any resemblance to person(s) living (I don't write about the dead), is pretty much, intentional. And yes, I indeed mean, almost, every word that I write...

The more I see you... the more I know you.
The more I know you... the more I like you.
The more I like you... the more I love you.

The more I love...
...the less, I want you.

- read it somewhere once, and it has been adoring my cellphone notes, ever since. For now, attributed to - Anonymous.
When you've grown up on mushy love stories and novels that make you believe just about every word they have in them (No, it isn't Mills and Boons that I'm referring to), you tend to begin thinking, nay dreaming. And resist as hard as you may, you do end up believing in phenomenon like beginner's luck (The Alchemist), life coming a full circle (The Glass Palace), sins and penance (Crime and Punishment), happy endings (old school Bollywood and most of Hollywood as well), love at first sight (where did that come from?)...

Oh Sorry. I'm so very sorry. This was supposed to be a valentine's day special. I have 364 other days to tell you the story of MY life.

SO, on to it...

She walked in at some weird moment of my life. All good moments seem weird in hindsight, you see.

And, I won't beat about the bush, yeah she was pretty. The prettiest I had seen in a long, long time. And cute, smart, intelligent, passionate, compassionate... all qualities that I would fill up to describe 'The Perfect Match' field in a social networking form. And I wished I could know her more. So, I did. Just a bit more. I did. And more. More and more. The more I came to know her, the more I wanted to know her. Hell! Before I knew it, I was in love. The love song at first sight had moved on, to a serenade...

But they say, you can never know them enough - girls I mean. And so hadn't I. So just like the whiff of moist monsoon breeze that she had made her way in to my life... she blew away, like an alien westerly.

Or so I thought, then. Because when I reflect back now, I realise she had never walked into my life.
It was a tale of two parallel galaxies, that had come close, by serendipity, never to cross paths. Life moved on. It has, because it had to.

And I lived on, knowing and somehow, believing, that I couldn't love again, having given away all that I had.

That was yesterday. One of the numerous days gone by...

Sifting through the memories of the days gone by, I came across this treasure chest. And it had all my feelings, emotions, inspirations and the real me, stacked just the way I would have ever wanted - all messed up, and ready to be... let loose! I am yet to figure out who all to thank for the safe keeping job. But yes... I'm waiting again, for, the one.

And I trust me, when I say that - "She'll be loved."

P.S. : A Happy Valentine's day to all the readers of THE iNFINITY :)
Dedicated to: The human spirit that is so inherent in me. Just refuses to, die!

Hey.... I wont feel sorry for you and nor you are feeling sorry for yourself. We have loved. We have learned. .. Learnt probably the hard way but so what. Lessons nonetheless. This valentine's day lets raise a toast "to new beginnings" .... and ya.. A very happy valentine's day to you when your heart is at peace, mind calm and soul blessed. see you around

" beginner's luck (The Alchemist), life coming a full circle (The Glass Palace), sins and penance (Crime and Punishment), happy endings (old school Bollywood and most of Hollywood as well), love at first sight (where did that come from?)... " and add "love at last sight(my blog" :P

I also hope that you get your dream-girl soon :)

Am sure many more will walk into your life buddy.. but the best of all will stay forever :) .. until then enjoy life :)...
Happy valentines day :) ....

@ Buddy:
I had a gut feeling you'd be the first one here... n as I told you - "The One", is still some years away... you'll be back by then! lolz

@ Isha:
hmmm... can't say who'd be happier of the two though.. ;) and yes, you really can predict Dhoni's next move sometimes... but girls... nah! noways.

@ the pink orchid:
lessons... are big things for me! Can't exactly say what I learnt out of it, but yes i did leaarn, and enjoyed every moment of it...
and yes... a toast to new beginnings...
happy valentine's day to you too.... :)

@ Ashish: Haven't yet experienced love at 'last sight'... but must say, seems to be a groundbreaking and more heartbreaking concept ;)
wish you a very happy valentine's day ...

@ Charmed One!:
thank you so much for such a thoughtful valentine's day wish... and a very happy valentine's day to you too ;)

Your disclaimer was what struck me the first, next was of course the post, not entirely the work of fiction... well even though I am not exactly someone to be talking about love, yet I'll say someone somewhere is definitely for you... but don't wait please, it could be too late! ;)

On a serious note, be the first to say what you feel...

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

@ Akansha: That's why I typed it in a real fine font, the disclaimer, but some people I guess are just too good at reading between the lines. ;) ... hmm.. someone somewhere... that's bollywood again DTPH was it? lol..

sometimes you just have to.. wait. No, actually I'm short of words right now... so, on a closing note... Happy Valentine's Day :)

I could fill a thousand pages telling you how I felt and still you would not understand.
So now I leave you without a sound except my heart shattering as it hits the ground....

It is impossible to fall out of love, love is such a powerful emotion,
That once it envelops you, it does not depart.

hmmmmm.....dude..i may be late in posting a comment to ur blog...but i guess m not too late....still have 1hr 43mins in hand...its great that u have moved on..(which i still doubt...seriously)..and wen u have try to come out of ur closet in which u have closed urself for the last few months...dude that place has started to move out and start looking for a new life..."the one" won't walk into ur move ur ass out of ur room...i know it hurt rt now...but its temprary...n hey if i get a swing of mind...i will make ur ass more painfull...hehheheh
