What is it that you have been writing. Can I have a look.
No you needn’t.
Okay but why?
I dont want you to.
But I have always did.
Well, then not from this moment.
Okay shall we sit down to talk.
No not now.
Its okay, its just me.
Yes can I just come closer. Closer to you.
Okay may I touch your finger tip.
You think this is funny. Don’t you?
No, I am just trying to help.
The best thing would be to just leave.
Yes, just go . Go away. Go far away.
I can’t bear you around.
Why are you still standing. Go away.
(Foot steps, door opens. Foot steps fading)
Wait ( with disgust)
Remember I dont want to see you anytime soon. Dont return.
Wait. Do you have a place to go? You are such a dependent creature, do you know that? Okay listen, don’t go too far, just stay away.
I told you to stay away. Why are you here?
Listen, I have a suggestion.
Oh not anymore.
Just once. Please.
No. ( shaky)
Listen, can I just switch off the lights so that you needn’t see me and you can be sure I am not watching you. (Speaking swiftly)
Okay. All the better.
(Silence but presence felt)
(moments passing in silence but presence felt)
Where ? Where are you?
Can you touch my fingers, here.
(Finger tips touch)
Can You come closer
Here I am.
(Thick silence, where breathings and hearts could be heard)
(Moments passing by..)
Can I speak.
Would you like to lie-down.
(Sound of furniture)
You are weak I see. Would you sleep?
Yes but will you sleep too.
No I won’t.
Then what will you do?
I will watch you and caress you while you sleep.
Let your eyelids fall, let all those thoughts out of your brain. Calm..
Can I touch your skin.
(Whispers.. soft smiles)
Will I see a dream?
And I know you know the reason why?
Yea, because tonight we are together already.
(Humming a broken tune.. whispers.. Smiles in between.. silence)
Seven stars visible through the window. The darkness of the sky is one with the darkness in the room. A cloud covering them from the light of moon. As if the universe is made of cold darkness, seven dim stars, two humans and one divided soul. Sound of silence carrying waves of minds, one conscious and the other, mid way..
