who needs words

i remember her smile.

we were walking to the d.u. metro station. me & nidhi, her little sister who had her last exam yesterday, and i had gone to the khalsa college to meet her.
and her.

that smile. i wonder why nobody else sees what i see. i wonder if people around even notice what's going on. and they continue on with their drab existence. i wonder if even nidhi who was walking beside, saw what i saw. the way she smiled.

she was walking slightly ahead of us. this petite girl-woman in a white suit with silvered earings and white dupatta and a silvery kada. both of us, me n nidhi had met for the first time and in a genial relationship taking birth, were teasing her a lot.

that is when she turned and laughed and everything around her laughed at her words, 'itna marungi na' (i'll kill you both). and by everything i mean not the zombies shuffling around, but the sun, the sky, the trees, the pavement, the ground beneath her feet, and the heart in my heart which skipped a beat and smiled in return and the smile, the joy that must have flowered in my eyes.

she turned and smiled and i opened my arms to embrace this joy i've known so late in my life.

joy, joyer, joyest.

who needs words when he's in love.
