…never again


When they made love for the first time, it felt magical to him.

It was pious.

It was beautiful.

It was everything love could feel of.


…and he knew that no matter how hard he tried – he may never be able to touch the quintessence of this moment…ever.


So he went back to his home.


Whole night, amidst the lingering fragrance of her that was left onto his every breath, he painted.


He painted her. He painted life on that canvas. 


…and in the morning, satiated with his labor of love and madness with all those colours….he drank his wine…….and shot himself.


…he knew – he could have never loved again like that.

…he knew – he could have never painted again like that.

    Ah, Prashant!
    How can you simply train your voice to write those last two lines. It is the intense and intuitive satiation, that led him to take the step. It is an artist’s way, you have provided a beautiful canvas.

      …and only a true artist like you can feel the honesty of such an extreme step.
