“When love beckons to you follow him, 

Though his ways are hard and steep. 

And when his wings enfold you yield to him, 

Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. 

And when he speaks to you believe in him, 

Though his voice may shatter your dreams... 

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. 

Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your 

tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, 

So shall he descend to your roots and shake them 

in their clinging to the earth......

But if in your fear you would seek 

only love's peace and love's pleasure, 

Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness 

and pass out of love's threshing-floor, 

Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, 

but not all of your laughter, and weep, 

but not all of your tears. 

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: 

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. 

To know the pain of too much tenderness. 

To be wounded by your own understanding of love; 

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.” 

                                                                        ― Kahlil GibranLe Prophète




It is that with a full heart and an easy mind,

I set sight upon the eve of dawn.

Fading nets of light, cast out upon the seas of heaven,

tangle the last of my uncertainty;

drowned with the dying star.

Fate, no longer my master,

Fear, no longer my captor,

Death, no longer my enslaver;

I am a free man.

Lady liberty my shadow; watches over me now.

Her hand entwined with mine; she walks beside me now.

My heart, love's chalice; she fills me now.

Happiness; my saviour now.

With abandon we dance through the inferno;

and through the ashes we emerge virgin.

Flames surrender; pain, the final renegade.

The devil; he must dance for us now.

No night now shall I know without her;

each dawn witness to devotion.

Life has just begun; my birth her deliverance.

Upon bended knee I bow before her, a single promise.

A journey together; the question I lay.



So I'm really nervous about this because I tried a different format. I had a scene planned with conversation as well but then I thought it was good as is. I know its short but that's the point. 

Thank you for the AMAZING response to the last chapter. I love you all truly. 

Please drop a line and let me know what you thought. I need to know if you understood it or not otherwise I will supplement it with a note that explains what I was trying to say.

Love Sasak.


  1. it was beautiful...i also praise khalil gibran...beautiful

  2. That was beautiful.....! It captures both Khushi and Arnav's emotions perfectly....
    I am guessing there is going to be a proposal soon... But all this happiness will soon be followed by sadness and lots of tears....
    This was perfect...!

  3. This is good as is.. Captures both of Khushi and Arnav's emotions very well.
    Words/conversation might not have done justice enough...

    “You talk when you cease to be at peace with your thoughts.”
    ― Kahlil Gibran

  4. Oh its beautiful....these words are more than enough to convey what Arnav n khushi are going through and also sheds light on the future plot.....awesome that u came up with this unique style to move further in the story
