I found you dusty and unkempt, under a carpet of ordinary lives.
What should I do with you, I thought.
You, a reluctant gem, you sleeping genie.

Should I dust you off and set you in my ring?
Or should I let you be to sleep peacefully,
Happy, content, unawakened?

Could I give you hand-mirror, I thought,
Just so you saw your fire, your deep red rareness?
And then kiss that flame to life only to burn in it?

    Pratik: Following me is not a favour but thank you for following me. I follow blogs I like. I checked out yours, give me a while longer, maybe I'll follow.

    Abhipraya: I am glad you do 🙂

    Tamanna: Huge strong case of writer's block, my girl. This came after much effort. And it shows. Glad you liked it.
