Time To Change

A colleague of mine told me today that she noticed perceptible changes in me since Feb'2010, and that the same  opinion is shared by a few others too. The most noticeable changes being:
  • I am not as frequently loud as I was before.
  • A semblance of an emotional being is now visible
  • I seem now to feel need for people to be around me (sociability)
    I said yes to all the three and thanked her. If these are the first few steps, there are miles to go until I am perceived like any other normal human being. I am on the way. 

    When asked on the reason for change, I shared something very simple. I told her that I somehow started believing that its ok to share what I feel and let some of the normal emotions become visible to others. I have always been interested in people around me, especially colleagues who work with me, its just that I did not want them to know. Now I feel it is ok to let them know.

    I am not very sure whether this is going to be easy. There is less to lose and much to gain. Happy change days ahead.

    Long Winter Chill

    If I could do a Neruda,
    You would have smelt of summer roses
    And Autumn pine.
    There would have been sheer love
    Of the kind that causes our hearts to ache
    And loneliness bordering the divine.
    You would have had so many secrets
    Welling up as in a girly giggle
    And so few friends who would hear them all.I am no Neruda
    I can't paint you a Summer breeze
    Amidst this long winter chill.

    The Color That Blinds

    Every time I close my eyes
    I see the green of Kerala countryside
    The dark greens of lumbering rubber trees
    The even tranquil green of silent paddy fields
    The light lemon yellow green from tender clover leaves 

    And then I remember your dupatta
    Deep red or possibly maroon
    Standing out among the Kerala countrysides.

    Hush

    You don't have to tell me.
    I just know.
    Its that little sniffle that comes through
    The unexplained pauses
    The slow responsesI know when you call
    Just because you needed to cry.
