Dead eyes and narrow smiles, I pictured myself as I was.
Days I spent, carrying a luggage of emotions and memories and walking as much as I could. Then I sat on a bench and looked at the people around me and stared at the trees for a long time and saw the falling leaves turning yellow and all what happened flashbacked in my mind and I tried to find a reason to blame you and then myself but I ended up blaming no one but the unfortunate times.
Nights I spent thinking about the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle that rendered it incomplete and how my trying so hard to make it right went in vain and it went all wrong.
In the nook and recess of my heart, longing for the past kept growing stronger and all the words we shared and all the moments we spent reverberated in my mind and I couldn't, just couldn't let that all go.
You were the piece missing from jigsaw puzzle and your leaving broke it and I still remember gathering the pieces from the floor and putting them together and realizing right away that it won't be the same as before, ever again. .

With a shaking hand and a more confused mind I type his number for exactly the 11th time.
And this time I dial it. The phone is ringing and I am thinking about how I could not dial his number for 10 times because I didn't know if he will answer it and if he does I didn't know what I will talk about.
Phone is still ringing and I wonder why is he taking so long, is he ignoring it?
Just as I am about to disconnect the call, he picks it up.

He: hello

Me: *hey where are you why you took so long to respond* hello

He: say?

Me: *it's been 4 days now and I don't know what's it, I don't know what's bothering me but there is something and I'm getting weaker and weaker.* how are you?

He: I'm good.

Me:*thinking what to say next*

He: I'll call you later

Me:*no don't do that .. at least not now please.. I need you* you're busy?

He: yes, I am outdoors.

Me: *I need you here , and what you are doing is really that important* what are you doing?

He : I'm with my friends, playing.

Me:*that's the important work!* Oh

He: disconnects the call

Me: okay

Confused about what just happened, I stare at my phone and wonder nothing.

I open my call list and think why did I even call him after not dialing his number for 10 times.

I know what I want. I know I am sad, empty and out of control. I know I need to talk but I have nothing to talk about. I know I need someone to listen to my nothing.

And more than that, I know I need to cry. I need to cry as long as I want to, as long as I can, as long as I run out of tears.
That's it. That's all I need. I just need to cry and this emptiness of last few days will be over.

But. I can't. I can not cry. Even if I try to, I can not do it. I don't know what has made it so difficult.
But I know it is making everything else difficult too.

On the 5th day streak of feeling nothing, losing control, and increased emptiness, I laugh at my failed attempt of crying and delete his call from my call list
and I wonder,

Why is it that having a shoulder to cry on makes crying easier? ~ Komal Pungalia

[MY LATEST BLOG]

While we bask in the glory of Veterans Day, under the impression that all who fought in the armed forces, did so for the same reasons, let us not forget that there has always been a segment of the population that has never been viewed as equal, abroad or when returning home from war. Mudbound was more than a movie. It was the reality of so many blacks drafted into America’s armed forces.

Let us also not forget that upon returning from war, blacks had an awakened consciousness. During World War II, Black men who were drafted into the war and deployed to Italy, France, and Germany immediately recognized the similarities between American racism and that experienced by Jews under Nazi oppression.

It is to this time in history that we trace the birth of the popular usage of the term “ghetto” to refer to the living conditions of blacks in America. In his Ghetto: The Invention of a Place, the History of an Idea, Mitchell Duneier points out that black scholars in the 1940’s used the term Ghetto in direct response to “the rise in attention to the Nazi treatment of Jews in Europe.” In other words, black scholars used this term as a political statement highlighting the reality of the black experience.

Blacks weren’t blind to the reality of their own oppression, nor to their responsibility. Those in the Black press proclaimed, “Our war is not against Hitler in Europe but against the Hitlers in America.” So as we remember those who fought to liberate others, let us not forget those who fought (and continue to fight) to liberate themselves.

A little reminder to help ease me through those perennial questions I alluded to yesterday. Am I in the position I'm in because I'm really that good? Or am I the token female? It's not lost on me that my ascent is tied to emotional labour or that I bring a certain feminine balance to the table. I'm bucking a significant male-dominated trend and I'm not entirely sure why.
.
Don't get me wrong, I know what I've achieved; I know how I'm seen. I just don't want any of it to be about which boxes I tick; I have no desire to climb on top of everyone else. I'm just me: girl who grew up on a London council estate who everyone *thinks* is the embodiment of middle-class refinement. The same girl who's either about to make the best or the worst professional decision of her life. Right now I can't quite decide. Whether I'm doing the right thing, whether they really know me, whether I've made myself too dependable for my own good.
.
Alternatively, I might just be sad that my black cat's having surgery tomorrow. And I can't help thinking that either way, it's because I love too much.
