Oh my God…

What an achievement I done today!
I am very proud of myself here!

Only the thing, fear, rising in the mind
Again overtaking everything.
All the alternate thoughts fading out,
On the days filled the fortnight.

I would like to meet him,
I want to tell what is in the mind.
But didn’t able to tell,
And didn’t know how to tell.

He is staying just upstairs;
He will be in front of the door
Of my house by ten steps
Down through the staircase.
There is fear in the mind
Every day that he may come.
Even he came to check
The water level in the well
In the backyard,
The mind is trembling here,
As he came to look at and talk to me.

This is not started today,
Or yesterday.
Still it looks alike new.

Once he asked “why you didn’t came upstairs”,
I am confused and couldn’t answer.
“Okay, when will you come?” he asked again.
There is no answer to tell.
Still had a courage in mind,
Because of the fear that
He might ask something,
If I keep silent.

“I will give next week”
I told.
“Always your are like this”
“I can’t bare it anymore”
He told and gone away
With a gesture of hate.

Days were gone.
Next week and
The next to that next week also came.
The fear ant tension spread
Inside like the fire.

The mind trembled
As he may come again.
The stress, inability and
The tiredness because of it
Along with that.

Today, reach a decision
And take deep breathe,
Climb the staircase.
Go and stand in front of the door.
Rethink for a moment.
Is it right what I am doing?
There is no other way

It is better I am going
Inside his house
Than he is coming
In front of my house.

Pressed the calling bell.
He came and opened the door.
Because of the tension,
My tongue shivered rapidly,
Before he ask something,
And the words had fallen out.

I couldn’t remember how much I talked
But, the content I told is clear.
“I couldn’t..
please wait for one more week..”
Having a very good character,
He understand and smiled.

“What the next week means?”
He look at my face.
“The next Saturday”
I told avoid looking his eyes.
“Will you give surely?”
“Surely I will give”
He agreed as usual!

What else he can do looking my poor eyes!
He told
“I will wait”
I turned telling “Okay.”
When stepping down
Through the staircase,
Felt that the weight in the mind
Also coming down.

Oh.. what a satisfaction!
What an achievement!
Felt happy as I won the whole world.

I am continuing this for the tenth time,
Because there is no other way in front of me.
I don’t know when a solution will get for this.
“Shit.. what a life is this”
The mind scolded to the maximum.

“Oh my God…”
“Why you didn’t care about this?”
“Don’t you hate to see it again and again?”
“Don’t you get bored,
To hear the same dialogue repeatedly?”

The same tension sustaining
From the first day to
Tenth of every month.
Because of it,
Doing many works,
To earn from the tenth
To twentieth day,
Even the mind didn’t like.
On the twenty fifth day,
When giving the money to ‘him’,
Who came to collect the rent for
The house he gave to me
And when I take deep breathe..

The first day of the next month,
Will come down to tear my face,
As to take revenge on me
For tearing it daily.

Because I came to the city
As a poor, I couldn’t reject it.
Because living just above
The poverty level, I couldn’t avoid it.
There is no way to change the way of life!
There is now way to earn as required!

As I am travelling with
An aim of achieving success
In the film industry,
I forget
The self-respect, 
The decency,
The dignity etc.,
Most of the time.

I reserved all these
For the hero of the screenplays
I wrote!

When ti is happened to me..
“Oh my God”
“Don’t you ashamed or felt…”

“Either leave me to live as I like”
“Or to make half this torture

Fix the months in a year as six.”

என்னவொரு சாதனை நான் புரிந்துவிட்டேன் இன்று..
என்னைப்பார்த்து நானே பெருமைப்படுகிறேன் இங்கு.

பயம் என்ற ஒன்று மட்டுமே மனதில் எழுகிறது,
மீண்டும் அனைத்தையும் ஓரம் கட்டி
மாற்று எண்ணங்கள் எல்லாம் மறைகிறது,
பாதிமாதத்தை நிறைத்த நாட்களிலே.

அவரை பாக்கத்தான் விரும்புகிறேன்..
என் உள்ளத்தில் உள்ளதை சொல்லத்தான் விரும்புகிறேன்..
ஆனால் சொல்லத்தான் முடியவில்லை..
எப்படி சொல்வதென்றுதான் புரியவில்லை.

அவர் இருப்பது என்னமோ மேல்மாடியில்தான்..
பத்தடி இறங்கிவந்தால் அவர்
என் வீட்டு கதவுமுன்னால் நிற்பார்.
அவர் வந்துவிடுவாரோ என்று
தினம் தினம் மனதிற்குள் ஒரு பயம்,
பின்முற்றத்தில் இருக்கும் கிணற்றில்
நீர் இருக்கிறதா என்று பார்க்க வந்தாலும்
அவர் என்னைப்பார்த்து பேசத்தான் வருகிறாரோ
என்று இங்கே படபடக்குது நெஞ்சம்.

இது இன்றோ நேற்றோ ஆரம்பித்தது இல்லைதான்..
இருப்பினும் என்றும் புதியாதாகவே தோன்றுகிறது.

ஒரு முறை கேட்டார் ஏன் மாடிக்கு நீ வரவில்லை என்று,
பதில் சொல்ல முடியாமல் தடுமாறினேன்.
சரி எப்பத்தான் தருவாய் என மீண்டும் கேட்டார்,
சொல்வதற்கு பதில் இல்லை.
இருப்பினும் ஒரு தைரியம்..
மௌனமாக நின்றால் அவர் வேறு
ஏதாவது கேட்டுவிடுவாரோ என்பதால்
அடுத்தவாரம் தருகிறேன் என்றேன்.
எப்பொழுதும் இப்படித்தான்
இனி என்னால் பொறுக்க முடியாது
என்று சலித்துக்கொண்டே சென்று விட்டார்.

நாட்கள் சென்றது..
அடுத்த வாரமும் அதற்கு அடுத்த வாரமும் வந்தது..
உள்ளுக்குள் பயமும் பதட்டமும் தீயாய் பரவியது..
மீண்டும் வருவாரோ
என மனம் படபடத்தது..
அத்தோடு தவிப்பு> இயலாமை>
அதனால் வந்த தொய்வும் வந்த்து.

இன்று ஒரு முடிவுடன்
பெருமூச்சை இழுத்து விட்டு
மாடிப்படிகளில் ஏறினேன்,
கதவு முன் சென்று நின்றேன்.
ஒரு நிமிடம் மறுயோசனை..
நான் செய்வது சரிதானா என்று,
அவர் மீண்டும் என் வீட்டுக்கு
முன் வருதை விட
நான் அவர் வீட்டுக்கு
உள்ளே செல்வதே மேல்.

அழைப்பு மணியை அழுத்தினேன்..
அவர் வந்து கதவை திறந்தார்,
அவர் எதையோ கேட்க ஆரம்பிக்கும் முன்னே
பதட்டத்தால் என் நாக்கு அதிவேகமாக துடிக்க
வார்த்தைகள் கொட்டியது.
போசியது எவ்வளவு என்று ஞாபகம் இல்லை,
ஆனால் சொன்ன கருத்து இதுதான்!
என்னால் முடியவில்லை
இன்னும் ஒருவாரம் காத்திருங்கள்

என்னுடைய நிலமையை புரிந்தகொண்ட
நல்ல குணம் படைத்த அவர் புன்னகைத்தார்.
அடுத்தவாரம் என்றால்
என்று என் முகத்தை பார்த்தார்..
அடுத்த சனிக்கிழமை
என்று பார்வையை பார்க்காமல் தவிர்த்தேன்.
கண்டிப்பாக சனிக்கிழமை தருவாயா..
நிச்சயமாக தருகிறேன்..
வழக்கம்போல அவர் சம்மதித்தார்.
என் முகத்தை பார்த்து பாவம்
அவரும் வேறு என்னதான் செய்வார்!
காத்திருப்பேன் என்றார்..
சரி என மெல்ல திரும்பினேன்.

மாடிப்படிகள் இறங்குபோது
என் மனதில் இருந்த பாரமும்
இறங்க ஆரம்பித்ததை உணர்ந்தேன்.
ஓ.. என்ன ஒரு திருப்தி!
என்ன ஒரு சாதனை!
உலகையோ வெற்றிகொண்டதுபோல்
ஒரு சந்தோஷம்!

பலமுறையாக இதை தொடருகிறேன்..
காரணம் எனக்கு வேறு வழியில்லை.
எப்பதான் இதற்கு ஒரு தீர்வு கிடைக்கும்
என்று தெரியவில்லை.

சே.. இது என்ன ஒரு வாழ்க்கை..
மனம் என்னை திட்டிதீர்த்தது.

நீ ஏன் இதை கண்டுகொள்ளாமல் இருக்கிறாய்?
இதை பார்க்க பார்க்க உனக்கு வெறுப்பு வரலியா
திரும்ப திரும்ப ஒரே டயலாக்
பேசுவதை கேட்டு போரடிக்கலையா..

ஒவ்வொரு மாதமும்
முதல் தேதியிலிருந்து பத்தாம் தேதிவரை 
இதே படபடப்பு
பத்தாம்தேதி முதல் இருபதாம் தேதிவரை
இதற்காக மனதிற்கு பிடிக்காத வேலைகளையும்
இருபத்தைந்தாம் தேதி
என்னிடம் வீட்டை வாடகைக்கு விட்டு
அதை வசூலிக்க வரும் அவரிடம்
கொடுத்துவிட்டு பெருமூச்சு விட..

அடுத்தமாதம் முதல் தேதி
காலண்டரில் இருந்து இறங்கி வந்து
என் முகத்தை கிழிக்கிறது
தினமும் நான் கிழிப்பதை சுட்டிக்காட்டி
என்னை பழிவாங்கியபடி..

ஏழையாய் நகருக்கு வந்ததால்
இதை மறுக்கவும் முடியவில்லை
நடுத்தரமாய் வாழ்ந்ததால்
இதை தவிர்க்கவும் முடியவில்லை
வாழும் பாதையை மாற்றவும் வக்கில்லை
வேண்டியபடி ஈட்ட வழியும் இல்லை

திரைத்துறையில் வெற்றிபெறவேண்டும்
என்ற ஒரே லட்சியத்துடன் பயணிப்பதால்
போன்றவை மறந்தே போய்விட்டது
இவை எல்லாம் நான் எழுதும்
திரைக்கதைகளில் வரும்
நாயகர்களுக்கு மட்டுமாய்
விட்டுக்கொடுத்து விட்டேன்

எனக்குதான் இப்படி என்றால்
உனக்கும் சூடு சொரணை கிடையாதா

ஒன்று என்னை
நான் விரும்பியபடி வாழவிடு
இந்த பாதகத்தை பாதியாக்கிட>
மாதங்கள் ஆறு

என மாற்றிவிடு.
