Amber

*Whoa, amber is the color of your energy
whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally
you ought to know what brings me here
you glide through my head blind to fear
and I know why
whoa, amber is the color of your energy
whoa, shades of gold displayed naturally*

****

Those are just words of a song that someone that I loved, used to like a lot. And every morning, before I go to work, and I'm spending a frantic ten mins, getting dressed up (read: iron clothes, put them on, iron hair, vaseline lips, kajal eyes, perfume self n run), it's the song that runs through my head.

AMBER..................... red, hot, hot, red........................ ready to go, smoultering (not sleepy), (not tired), live wire, energyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Then i get to the waiting cab, soft cushions n gentle Kannada music (a language I can barely understand).. or sometimes, disco Kannada (dhoosh dhoosh nanu sherinjeevi, neenu sheridhevi)... n the mind begins to wander

And then get to work, have a smoke, swipe through all doors, fix up workstation, go get something to drink, sip through it urgently, burning tongue... run in again, do a floor walk, saying hello to all other sleepy dwellers of the office room... get back to station... Nips sets campaign...

"Hello Good Morning.. this is Sabitha from St ______ ____, clln with regds to ur loan........"

9 hrs later... Amber what? *yawn* U knw how fire fizzles n ash settles... ash is the more permanent substance out of the two... but apparently it isn't, cz after lunch.. n some sleep, it's back to the amber song again.... whoah.. amber is the colour of ur energy... whoah............
