Pencil Sketch – An Incomplete Story

Every morning, every night, everyday, he tries something to doodle. He craves to transform his sketch into life. He tries to speak through his black and white colors. The blank paper loves to flaunt his art. He holds the pencil with sheer passion and looks at the blue moon with utter delight. He imagines life beyond life; he tries to draw shades of pain and laughter. He rubs his creation to give a unique feel. He creates images of lust and desire. Raindrops and lightning inspires him to fill the blank paper with some life. He crafts characters and emotions with panache.

Every morning, every night, everyday second, his thoughts reverberates around the pencil and paper of art. He plays with various hues; he touches every aspect of his art softly. He travels through the landscapes; he makes love with his characters in harmony. His world is colourful as he knows the art of transforming dullness into vivid imageries. His avid taste for beauty maketh his existence.

Suddenly everything changes in his horizon, he finds continues unevenness in his kingdom. He struggles to make a living, he stays in a dilapidated apartment and unexpectedly he loses all the powers to doodle and express. His HB pencil no more moves flawlessly, his art paper no more craves to flaunt his creativity. The end is near, the fall is certain. His yearnings for creating a masterpiece still linger like a broken dream …

After 10 years….


He is a successful man now who lives in a posh apartment and drives swanky cars. He no more sketches laughter and pain but he makes skyscrapers and flyovers. Sometimes in his silent moments, he tries to feel the beauty of his erstwhile sketches, which he no more sees in his geometrical lines…

  8. That's how the reality bites! It's not possible for everyone to live their dreams and realize them to find that ultimate happiness of life! I love photography and am very passionate about it but the necessities of life have ensured that I stick to my second best skill which is designing! But thank god, circumstances and my near and dear ones never forced me to do something which I didn't want to!!

    Extremely well written! Following you now on Twitter as pixelliciousd
