Contrast

Entered the arena, eagerly waiting to get his sight. He enters, a standing ovation! His gait brought a smile, his sense of humour brought laughs. His statements funny, playfully jocular. He made facetious remarks be it with regards to current affairs, the past, facts, the show or any answers to the questions. His sermons were unpredictably witty and satirical as well as eloquent. He was rhetoric! He joked, performed various other comic, humorous acts. I laughed out loud, rolled on the floor laughing. The laughter still echoes...

She walked in, spoke loud... her lid blown off. Her words weird, incomprehendible, critisizing. Her remarks hurt, made me quiver. Was around several, still felt the void. She says, expects I would do harm, she brought a frown. The displeasure still resides in some corner of the heart. Dont wanna look back at the sad. The tears still flow...

A striking contrast of the facets of life, it seems the rose and the thorn, and sorrow and gladness are linked together. Wish the former incident always occurs and the latter never shows its face!

“There are dark shadows on the earth, but its lights are stronger in the contrast.” ~ Charles Dickens once said.

Without the latter u wont appreciate the former .. In my opinion both should be given equal importance in life

@sumedh: wat makes u think both the characters r real. Even if they r, its for me to know & u to guess ;)

@praveer: ack rec :-)

@vivek: Agreed completely! These r the 2 flip sides of the same coin, each equally important & essential to remind us of the other. Afterall every cloud has a silver lining ... & every good has a bad.

This one reminds of Eminem's song... Lose yourself..

Look, if you had, one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it, or just let it slip?...
.
.
.
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo..

Yes always strive to make the best of every chance you get!

Very well written. Well!!! One can't have a perfect picture with proper proportion of brightness and contrast. Same is with life you need contrast and brightness both(in appropriate proportion always) to make it perfect :)
