The Highway Man And His Subway Girl.


“Hey! What if I make a pass at you right now?”. She says playfully.

“Well, you don’t have to try to make a pass at me everytime, you see?”


“Tell me, what if I do?”

“What! Like here? But why, Aren’t you a little too young for that?”


“I asked you a question! ”

“Give it a shot, I am game”


“So,do you think I stand a chance?

“Do I?”

“Does it have to be so complicated?”




“No, I think we are way past complicated here.”


“So, Is that why you push me away?

“You think I push you away? How do you explain me turning up here every second day then?”


“Enlighten me”

I want to pull you close and push you away at the same time, if that is even possible“,


” You are quite enjoying the game”

“And you are a tricky woman. Don’t think you can get away with it for long”.


“I don’t want to.”



“But, why me?”

“Because that’s what I want?”


“You do realize that I am nothing but an old bat with an evil past”.

“I like the way it sounds.”


“Maybe you do, but I am certainly not the man that you need”.

“I have seen the way you look at me.”.


“Maya, Don’t be ridiculous now. You were not even born when I first kissed! ”

“Well, I am here now”


“I see that you are! “


“So, does that mean anything at all to you? ”.

“Yes. The world”

A writer is how I would love to have myself defined as. Who makes a lot of typos though. Thank God for all these apps that has come to my rescue. Probably not a very good one or successful one at that yet. But someone who did make an effort. Although I finish most of my articles in a haste every single time. And constantly worries if the piece is worth it or not.. Hasn't grown out of the cocoon yet. Hopes to one day write something for myself and not worry of being judged. Because invariably I write about things that makes it easy for the readers to judge to me. Yes I am hopelessly prejudiced about my writing and choice of topics. Goes low on self esteem more than often although I vaguely know that there is something about my writing that can probably strike a chord someday only if I tried a lot harder. Never works too hard. Never works too less. That Never been part of my system. Which means I always play the safe game.I hope to someday break out to that realm of fictitious world where my imagination will stay raw and free, my flow of words be effortless and there would be nothing around me that can stop me or bind me there. Oh Yes! I want to get there.
