Sunkissed! When golden rays of the morning sun strike your face; the yellow-orange aura almost blinds you but at the very moment the happiness that fills your heart ignites a lifelong spark. The warmth, the subtle singe of the sun rays lift the floating emotions of the night to a new high. Sunshine! That’s what he used to call her. Her smile had the same effect on him. The wide curve of her face used to irradiate the darkest corners of his persona. There was an unusually positive vibe about her. Some called it her frisky nature but there was more to it that he
could feel.

Years ago they crashed into each other at a design class; it wasn’t by accident. He was unusually odd & she was liveliest in the studio. Both exactly the opposites. Somewhere in the span; stretched over a few years & thousands of heartbeats; they both knew that they share a beautiful yet unexplainable bond. Cloaked in friendship, painted in excuses; they both knew how valuable possession they share. An unnamed connection, an entity build over perplexed emotions & concealed thoughts. Their untitled bond never fails; instead with time it has matured into something unexplainably beautiful.

He was a masterful illusionist of thoughts; she was a phoenix in disguise. Both failed & tormented in previous lives; yet both survived; away from one another, only to reunite. She admired his lexical tricks; he loved her vibrant persona. Every time they meet, their conversations went deeper than spoken words. Their dialogues constructed a lyrical narrative. A narrative that stretches over lengths that no script could hold or no ink could construe.
