I am aware of science and facts. I know clouds are just cluster of condensed water droplets and it’s blue because light scatters, and stars are just a conglomeration of different gases, burning inside, shining outside.
I have grown up enough to understand expressions, feign laughs, fake smiles and bother people less.
Over time, we have strengthened old bonds, met new people and forgotten some. We have gotten close, and we have drifted apart.
We know this world.
Luxury. Chill. Beauty. Desire. Gold. Silver. Science. Facts.
We know it all, but,
And despite of all this,
It is the simple things in life, we yearn for.
A quiet rooftop in a buzzing city. Watching all the life below. Lights, all red, yellow, white and bright.
Oh, the speed, and the calm in the rush.
Under a tree, your corner of shade on a summer afternoon. Silent.
A gush of cool wind. Hearing the soft rustle of leaves, eyes a bit heavy.
Sharing earphones. A shoulder to lay your head on.
Rains, clouds, dark.
Bright, beautiful, best friend.
Colours of the dawn.
Mountains. A green patch of land. Arms resting beneath your head. Laying side to side by the love of your life.
Night. Calm. Stars.
Staring into all the meanings.
It’s all the simple things.
We no more wish on shooting stars, just wish for one. Wish for peace enough to notice a streak of light, arising from darkness and vanishing in the same, and feel, if there is any, the magic in it.
Make a wish! 💫
