Unable to Hide

The shades she wore often hid her pensive outlook, which though jutted, took shelter beneath the pretentious cover. And though the thin line of uncalled smile wrapped many untold tales of betrayals, but the shroud today had dissolved, and the drape had vanished into oblivion, for the stark truth stared through her soul lurking from the mirror of her own eyes

Slinky Unrest

In the shadows of the promenade light she walked with leaden steps, and her eyes left behind a putrid reek. And at yonder the fetid ether wrapped the world around her in slinky unrest but she wasn’t aware

Bizarre Aura

The quietude crawled with faint steps disturbing the night’s serenity, for the silence in blue moonlit skies often possesses a sense of eerie.

Your White Lies

The semblance you display may succeed to disguise the world but will never blind my defiant heart, for my view don’t get smeared by the deception you shroud with your sweet talk anymore. Nor do I get sway by your phony pixie smiles like how I used to get smitten before. For my heart has become rugged, and the only color that stays on it is black, spotting promptly your white lies.

Passing Thoughts

The sky had a different shade of blue, It was the turquoise one that dazzled in the bright afternoon sun blinding my eyes. The feathery thin white cloud scattered sparsely over the horizon, and when I watched the white patches for long, I saw patterns of faces and shapes. Like the Pinnochio’s nose protruding into oblivion. And then between the various morphed images, I saw a blurry face of a long lost friend, beaming with the same curious enigmatic eyes, that used to put me into a spin.  And all of a sudden, the days from yore stood next to me teasing me from yonder.

When it Rains….

The torrent rushed down with a devilish grin as if the grays were ripped from the skies and the downpour came crashing, falling hastily on the rugged terrain.

Longings

The rutted rocky path had marks of many wander Lustig souls and the faded impressions on the time forgotten berm screamed in silence the longings of some unheard yore

And She found hope…

The wind was blowing a tad stronger tonight. The tall shadows of trees visible a while before were now consumed by the darkness of the ghoulish night. Amanda increased her pace as she moved hastily to reach home. The intensity of the eerie was increasing by the minute and the whooshing sound rattled whatever sanity she had conjured thus far.

Form grayness it became pitch dark in a trice. Nothing was visible. She rubbed her eyes to get a view but all it did was increased the obscurity of the blur. Her phone was almost about to die and she dreaded to use it to illuminate the way, but she had no choice left. With reluctance, she put the phone light on. The narrow beam penetrated the darkness with a ray of hope.

Her steps were cautious but it also exhibited haste. And trapped in her convoluted bearings she missed seeing the ditch and fell with a hard thump. While her phone was a few feet away, her spirits were tossed many miles apart. She was broken and lost all hope of survival. The howling of wind had intensified so were some monstrous souls of the ghastly night.

Though fear loomed her existence the urgency was lost. She picked her wretched soul and stretched to reach her phone. The screen came to life and she saw the smiling face her mom hugging her tight. The round doe shaped eyes of her mom appeared intriguing in that lonely surround.  A surge of hope embraced her soul, for she was not lonely anymore

Mockery

An echo vibrating though the walls staring into nothingness through the hollow eyes of mind, now wears an obnoxious smile, teasing the very thing we called it ostensible life
