The Adventure Run


I’m not your home and I don’t want you to look up  to me for peace and comfort. I want you to look up to me for adventure and fun. I want us to run on the sands of a beach collecting shells and see who hits a bigger number. I want us to land up in tropical rainforests, build canopies and taste the fruits of wilderness. I want us to run on islands and cook with coconuts under the palms. I want us to hold hands and wander in the narrow streets all day long. I want us to play games like ‘who can gobble most of the marshmallow jelly from the tub’. I want us to get into silly arguments and punch you before we finish, okay I’m a girl but you’re allowed to punch me back. I want you to contribute when I bitch about the people I don’t really like. I want us to meet old people at distant places and love them like our own. I want us to laugh and savor the spices of the world. I want us to have glimpses of the glitter dust and the twinkling stars, not in the sky but in the sea. I want us to run and catch fireflies in a dark & gladsome night. I want us to fly, I want us to flow,  I want us to float. I want us to face the sun and relish the shade. I’m your journey, not your home.

  1. You have made my heart go willy nilly… In a very beautiful way.
    “I am your journey, not your home” . I am going to share this on my Facebook. Seeking permission, Mademoiselle πŸ˜‰ Never has any line touched me so deep.
    This has made my smiles and my tears stand in Juxtaposition πŸ™‚
    Truly, madly, deeply.. in love with those lines. Not to mention the rising action of your thoughts, but the end gave a more vivd perspective to the entire idea.
    Beautiful thought. Let me borrow your mind sometime πŸ™‚

  3. I loved the last line.. “i’m your journey, not your home”

    The best thing about your posts is that you express so much in limited words.. it’s a quality very few possess.. πŸ˜ƒ

    Way to go antra πŸ˜ƒ

  4. a lot of “I wants” but i feel even with all those, one should still look to one another for some peace and comfort. one should be with someone they are comfortable with like a favorite shirt.
