That Moment

It's one of those moments, the guy in you grabs the micro starts talking on and on; mine is often sarcastic, from high school to career, spinning around the questions starting with why, no escape from responding. It's like life itself, which is always to blame; and which you can not do away with. In that moment you go through a mental trance. Next, a piece of music wakes you from your journey. It does not matter who it is, be it Ravel, Brahms or,Rachmaninoff; But, mostly it's Pachelbel knocking at my door. in that moment, lightnings thud in my world, just as my internal lights are dead blind. The dried, barren soil kisses the wild stream through cracked lips, A mom presses her toddler into her chest, that moment, life leaps into joy stripped of mournful sorrow. It feels like seeing the smile on the kid's face who made her first step; it feels like being picked up by the Baroque tune in "Canon In D". To some others, it feels like waking up to Miles Davis. People keep pouring through the streets, no matter what happened last night; it's like life itself,which is always to blame and which you can not do away with. Next, my eyes get blurry they see the loved one behind the foggy hills of my mind. it feels like covering her naked body with blanket, shielding off the morning breeze slipping through our ajar window as bed sheets smells of our sweat of bliss. That moment, it feels like sensing life running through your veins. So, you show interest in these verses partnering with me in that moment don't be intimidated with sharing it It feels like being a single body, united with all of our good deeds and sins. Afar, The Sun sends her last rays down the snow capped mountains of my heart that moment, my ears are cozily stuck with the arias of Andrea Bocelli, warm and gripping it feels like my dad's still alive and smiling
