I feel good when they echo back to me...

Love is, really nothing,

The words had been said, but did not feel beautiful until they came back, and corrected me, of what should have been said before.
So you’re taking guitar lessons?” (Pause, silence). “Because she plays a guitar?” I interjected the purposeful pause. “That’s good, really good.” (Long pause)

But a dream that keeps waking me,

The best thing about very good friends is that they mind what you say, and say it on your face. So you don’t have to mind your words, you are free with them. Very few reach that pinnacle.

Suddenly I blurted out, “Why? What purpose does that solve? Just to make an impression?”. Chances are that if you two know the same instrument, you might want to settle scores, and an initial act of love may soon find itself in wrong grounds of dominance and competition. We all have our moments; the possibility of this situation cannot be denied.

For all of my trying, we still end up dying,

Why compete with her, rather, learn something else, a keyboard, or drums, or violin. Complement her instead, so you two could jam together someday.” 
Love is the creation of music, by strumming otherwise incoherent, noise-like vibrations into a single peaceful coherent symphony. Each part, has its part to play, love.

How can it be?

That night, the words came back to me with a minor correction, and have been with me since then. 

“Don’t compete her, complete her”

Confused Soul said...

“Don’t compete her,complete her”

Wings of Harmony said...

Brilliant! Music and Love - two things merged in harmony, your piece covers them beautifully. :) :D

Thank You Gargi!

Well, here I am, again :P

Thank you!

@Confused Soul
Glad that you find sense in incoherence :)


sharmila said... equal music! Me viewed from a different angle is 'We'and 'you' complete the picture.

Suvi said...

.. knock knock.. awesome post.. but i think it may be not to "compete" with her but to do something she likes and wants you to do with her too; maybe in a cemetery, under millions of stars, all alone- just him nd her!

Rohini said...

enchanting!! as always.. :)

Carnett Rose said...

Isn't that what we all are looking for? Someone who complements us, fulfills us and enriches our otherwise mundane existences?

You have a remarkable way with words. :)

Fatima said...

Your incompleteness and mine, completes you and I...just like the day and night!

Simple yet a lovely post Anshul :)

Take Care

yasha said...

Hi Anshul, your post deserves a thumbs up! Simple words beautifully put together.

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

Yes, the picture, hence, is justified.

Perhaps ;)

Thank You :)

Yes, we are, but we're also too impatient to be lured into traps.

Thank You :)

Heyy, look who's back, How are you doing Yasha? :D

Purba said... never disappoint.

Kunal said...

That truthfulness and bluntness..
said so softly that you can't help but admire at the words.
Not just admire, but take them to heart.
Anshul..another great post.

Sadiya Merchant said...

uhh but y make an assumption she is incomplete!

Wings of Harmony said...

Take your award and put it on the shelf! :D :D :D Congrats!! Here's the link

Suruchi said...

Wow, it's almost like one of those stories oft repeated, that have a moral...

The closing lines are awesome-
"Love is the creation of music, by strumming otherwise incoherent, noise-like vibrations into a single peaceful coherent symphony. Each part, has its part to play, love."
I take this-Perfect!:-)

Needless to say, I loved the post...

Saumya said...

I too feel good when when I'm corrected...not out of some mar feeling but when the other person actually cares...and no makes me feel special......

Very aptly said-don't compete....rather complete...but here I think its not competition... when you love start liking every small thing about him/her...and end up trying it yourselves :P

Phoenixritu said...

I must say I like your style

Blasphemous Aesthete said...

Thank you! :)

thank you :)

To feel good considering that you are important? :D

Thank You :)

:) You made my day !

Is that so? Very well :D

Thank You!

SEPO said...

Beautiful lines :)

So subtle and so romantic :)

That incoherent thing that makes everything else wallop in coherence that only a pair of hearts can decipher.

Being completed by somebody, or being that somebody who completes someone...inst it such a divine privilege a very blessed few have?

Loved the post Anshul.

Srinidhi said...

Call me cynical but I am not sure of this complete business.

I would have preferred the complement lines you had chosen earlier itself.

I love the phrase you use here:
Love is the creation of music, by strumming otherwise incoherent, noise-like vibrations into a single peaceful coherent symphony. Each part, has its part to play, love

Well said. :)

Saru Singhal said...

I loved the way you brought the whole idea. Beautiful thought and written in such a language that it touches heart.

Thank you for this one.:)

Hiba said...

Haddock said...

Unknown said...

A short post but really heart touching. Its true that sometimes some simple incidents of our lives teach us some very important lessons.
