Man and Woman

Man and Woman: the cacophony

There she was sitting by the lake,
Alone but not so lonely.
For, the fleeting thoughts
Poured in and out unendingly.
The world was quiet and still for a moment,
Or an hour, who knows?
Time stood still
The rustle, the ripple, the slow dance of the leaves
Perturbed by the aimless breeze
All music accompanying her
In her journey within.

And there he was,
Standing by the arch-window,
Taking a break between two important meetings.
He ... was a leader of sorts.
A self made made man, of principles,
And values he could not trade,
With anything else in this world.
This place...his world was quite a hustle!
And often, the tune broke into an inexplicable noise
Time was running by,
He had to move along with the tide,
And a strange unknown force
Directed him to move ahead of it too!
For a quest...in search of something.

And it appeared to the world as if:
She had found it...
That which he was looking for!

Man and Woman: the harmony

There I was sitting by the lake
Alone but not so lonely
For there you were
Standing by the arch-window,
Taking a break between two important meetings.
When time stood still
For a moment,
Or an hour - who knows?
You looked this way and looked away
Indifferent yet not unconcerned.
The rustle, the ripple, that followed
Like the slow dance of the leaves
Perturbed by the aimless breeze.
You were a leader of sorts
I followed...
You were a man of principles, of values
A man I could trade for no one else in this world.
My world was quiet and still,
But thoughts inside were so much of a hustle.
Your world was quite a hustle
And as calm as your serene smile!
A strange force directed us towards each other...
And as our two separate worlds met
We set for the search...together.
In perfect harmony..
All music accompanying us, you and me
In our journey within...forever.

It seems very incomplete as if deliberately brought to an abrupt end!
