too little or too much

“tadaaa!!!”

Nobody saw it. Not even heard! That evening it sneaked out.While the others were occupied in one another, this ‘too’ happened.Second line close to the inner fold of the bind, it had been there for so many years now.

People came, saw, read, flipped, and then most questioned its presence.

While it always thought escape would come easy, the more it was seen & speculated,the happening seemed impossible. It was on a bookmarked page after all, it could’ve have easily slipped out.But it didn’t happen too soon.

Years passed by and things grew faint. Finally, it did escape.

Onto the saucer and balancing itself on the rim of the cup, a little forward, a little to the back,

plop and slurp! She just had a chilled cup of coffee, and that ‘too’ with a runaway!
‘ooops! slip of the tongue’ she uttered. It happened ‘too’ often now.

it happened in the board room, with friends and lovers ‘too’. at home when quite, it was easy but when she spoke it was ‘too’ few. This ‘too’ was a case that was once on a torn page, she thought.

She went back to the book, and spotted the missing word. The torn page stuck.

the line today read, ‘ …he is victorious who saves his wit till the end, than spends it too

little from beginning till end…’

P.S: Words come to us and then cling on. They are used and abused far too often, and then when a new one replaces it, it only works out its way through an escape. :)
