just so to remember

i dreamt you could jump so high and far it was equivalent to flying. you stood on the window of yati's room ungrilled, threw your big flat slippers out onto the gravelly carpark below, and jumped. from downstairs, you beckoned for me to join you. it was high and i was afraid, but something nudged at my subconscious, as if we've done this before and you'd reached for me and caught me midway, just in time. at that, i was convinced. from below, you beckoned for me to come, come, there's nothing to fear, i'm here; you had that it's gonna be fun, we're gonna have fun look all over your face. bracing myself, i threw my blue nike slippers out. they landed somewhere near yours. you were still barefooted. looking up. encouraging. so i left the ledge. i think, in midair, i was in somesorta crouching prepare-to-land-on-all-fours position. you know, like hemingway? then you bounced up, the closest i can describe's like tigger, but it was rather different. but all that matter's that you did catch me, and your shoulders were soft (not in a bad way) and warm and comfortable. you know, i like shoulders? come to think of it, the "soft and warm and comfortable" must have been my soft pillow, warm blanket and comfortable bed. haha. and then we were bouncing off headed for parkway, laughing like crazy, and i asked you, why aren't we jumping so high and far in that way that's equivalent to flying? (am i too heavy for you? you see, it was like a very close-proximity ride... i'd always wanted to get my arms around that neck... it just was never proper for me to do so) but you replied in a low whisper, no, we can't let them know that i can jump so high and far it's equivalent to flying, people can't accept that. that was the perfect answer.


when you go, don't look back, or i might mistake that for something i oughtn't. but if you don't, i'd be heartbroken.
