little things...

you are completely hard-pressed for time,
but still manage to succumb to your urge to write,

wanting to drink an amazing cuppa
even if the burns are still hurting your tongue
well past two days since your last sip,

wary of the staircase that tumbled you,
but still enthusiastically perform acrobatics
on the same fleet of stairs the next day,

knowing that you are gonna be badly hurt
because of another helping of a cup of custard,
but still venturing for another one,

rubbing your tongue against the upper jaw
acknowledging the numbness created
by the betel leaf that you munched in a wedding,

you know you are too tired
and it is almost brunch time,
but you still over-workout yourself
for that extra serving of custard you had last night,

you are traveling a long distance bus journey.
and you are irritated by the discomfort it may cause
due to loss of sleep.
and all of a sudden you wake up and feel happy
to realise that you have been sleeping all along,

...and so runs the list in the recharge package.
