Sometimes when you enter a place, your heart skips a beat. You get a sense of familiarity – déjà vu. A sudden pang but you cannot put your fingers on exactly. Your emotions run wild and you struggle to get hold of the reign. Not only with places even certain things, people, words, colours, scents etc. It happens when a memory in the unconscious mind is triggered. It can be either blissful or painful memories.
As humans, we experience enumerable things with every breath we take. And there are these breath taking moments that remind us to breathe, making our life worthwhile. At the same time, there are moments which are traumatic and can be life threatening too. It’s a fair deal, good and bad go hand in hand.
We rarely appreciate things that we are blessed with naturally. But anything acquired through nights of yearning and days of hard work or vice versa. We don’t ignore, we cherish them, respect them and hold them in our eyes. Why? Because we earned it through struggle that took us to the very end. So does it mean, we only appreciate hard earned things?
We never get what we want,
We never want what we get,
We never have what we like,
We never like what we have.
And still we live & love.

When the person is right next to you, you take them for granted. And in their absence, you understand. Don’t you agree with me?
Their absence can inflict such madness upon you that you just can’t move on. You are desperately in need to feel their presence. Your mind keeps reminiscing the moments together. Your days and nights revolve around their thought, the possible reunion. And you are also ready to go any length to make it happen.
Isn’t it ironic?
Why ignore their presence and later only to acknowledge them in their absence?
