strangers once again



we met as two strangers..
and then as if destiny had it planned,
we became friends.......
the 'inseperable' types,
or so we thought....

we were both running......
you were chasing your dreams...
me?? i was following you,
just so that i never lost track.....

and then, one day you stopped....
you asked me what i was doing...
hurt, i told you i was running too...
relieved, you thought mine was a parallel road...
the two of us being fellow travellers,
in this journey which would end someday...
embarassed, i slowed down a bit,
hoping you would slow down too,
just to keep pace...
but you kept running...

i questioned my existence,
depending on you for all the answers...
but you gave me none...
so i rendered the questions wrong,
and kept running along,
just so that i never lost track...


we met as two strangers....
rested a while....
shared some friendly banter...
gradually becoming routine in each others life...
and then i saw you running towards that glow,
that monster called practicality,
which had always seemed to haunt me,
until you had come along....

and the more you ran,
the more i found myself losing pace...
you knew exactly where you were heading,
i had always been the directionless fool...
and then i saw practicality winning,
there was no place for me anymore...
hoping against hope, i asked you to slow down...
only to hear that i expected too much...
that day, i died a little more!

today, you are still running...
complaining its a busy life....
nothing has changed for you, you say...
im still waiting,
for what, i do not know...
perhaps for you to stop a while and take notice,
that i am way behind you now...
and you are still running!!

we met as two strangers....
and now we are strangers once again...
we, who cared more than strangers should...
we, who once shared everything...
we, who are now reduced to "nothing"....
rules and norms come into focus,
for strangers should not care....

and yet once in a while,
i know you will think of me,
as a stranger who kept running,
unaware of where she was heading,
just so that she could be with you!!

Hey, I liked it, almost balladic, but don't ask me why, it is maybe the words you used for the journey.
