Cap! Bewildered, I looked for you everywhere, all along thinking that you were here a while ago; Disappointed eventually, I placed myself in a pen holder, hoping that perhaps someday you might return; I waited; still you never came, Time passed and I cried my ink out, yet you never came! Meanwhile God sent another cap; One of those tight promising ones that are there to stay. But I always somehow managed to push him away and make him fall, still unlike you he always returned! But obviously eventually my persistence and unacceptable behavior won me my space and he found a new pen holder. We still say hi, if our paths cross and I don’t know why, but he is still always nice to me.
Anyway, one fine afternoon, the window was open and I was sunbathing. It must have been the heat, that made me faint. Alongside, I am guessing due to my weight, the pen holder too fell! I have no recollection of the chaos that must have persisted. Anyhow when I came back to my senses, I felt something funny and when I turned to look, I was surprised to see that you were stuck to my back. We started talking and gradually you made your way towards my nib and then you said, ‘I was here all along.’ I didn’t understand the logic behind that Precious, but I understood when you said ‘Together, we look pretty’. Nonetheless now the unfortunate truth is that besides looking pretty there is nothing much left to what we had, because my ink has dried and that makes you useless; Moreover I like my air now!
