Heat of the moment

Heat of the moment

quote from Aleph

You won a debate, you won an argument,
but lost… a friend in the heat of a moment;

You got the ice-cream, you got the chocolate cake,
but lost a sibling in the heat of a moment;

You got the promotion, you got the contract,
but lost your partner in the heat of a moment;

You got to travel the world, you got to live the dream,
but lost your love in the heat of a moment;

There are many things in life we loose or gain in a moment. Sometimes we are proud of it till eternity and sometimes we regret it every single day but one day you would be sitting on a beach wondering what if those moments could have been a bit different.

This reminds me of a famous dialogue of Dumbledore from the movie potter in which he says, words are the most ┬áinexhaustible source of magic capable of both inflicting injury and remedy. So no matter how tense the situation is, no matter how worse the argument goes, no matter how heated the conversation becomes… there is always a probability of finding a mango especially during the hot Indian summer. Forget everything and start savouring the mango we’ll get to the discussion later on.

Personally speaking…. things have gone out of hands, words have been said out of bounds, situations went out of control but what hurts the most are the pity things which started it.
