The Daily Prompt – Forlorn!

That moment when life feels empty

You stare into nothingness 

You feel an indescribable pain

Grief holds tightly to your soul

Almost choking you to death

That moment when life feels desolate

You gaze from emptiness to nothingness

Your body becomes frail and weary

You bathe in pain

In the pool of your own tears

Wishing an end to this forlorn fate

**************

 

Submitted to the Daily Prompt    Forlorn.

 

Peace and Love!

How Did We Get Here?

I am standing by the window with my cup of Earl Grey Tea sitting across the room. It has become a daily ritual, even as I multitask. My mind is meandering, moving from one corner of the world to another.
My whole body cringed as I wandered into the scene of the violent uproar in my motherland. The gory images and the excruciating sobs from wounded souls weakened my nerves. The sight of gruesomely mangled human bodies littered around. Blood splattered everywhere. And a tear trickled down my brow. Innocent souls bathed with agony as they travel the arduous road of death. Ah, Lawd. who did this to my people? Who unleashed these demons that feed on human blood? The scale and magnitude of terror that riddles the world is heart-wrenching. This insidious erosion of humanity tugged at my core.

The Fall Leaves…!

Everywhere I turn to 
I see the trees decorated with yellow and orange leaves 
A rich kaleidoscope of brilliant colours 
Some red, some brown, some mixed 
Elegant in their magnificent grandeur
Hitherto, those were the green leaves
But fading, turning into colourful colours
Creating a glowing contrast
Amazing hue
Radiant leaves yet their life is ebbing away

They were once the lush foliage of the summer
Now in a tidal pool of decline as they bow to death
Yet in dying, they exude glamour
But the rhythm of nature must be obeyed
And the trees must shed their leaves
And the leaves must fall and be trampled upon
For every living thing must bow when the time is ripe
And the ground is the recipient
For nothing last forever

The Daily Prompt – Surreal.

I alighted from the car feeling devastated

It was a gruelling seven hours drive from the city

The whole compound looked doleful

The gloomy atmosphere was palpable  Continue reading

War And Peace….!

I woke up today reading different versions and analysis with regards to the spate of killings in our world and especially this murderous lunacy of yesterday.

It’s quite frightening. Disheartening too, with trails of excruciating pains to the families caught up in these unfortunate incidences. No doubt, we live in uncertain times and the World seems askew. Man’s invention has become a weapon of mass destruction. Nothing is in sync anymore. I’ve read different views, opinions, and possible solutions to abate these ugly incidents happening around the globe. These ungodly acts instill fear into us and most people become too scared, afraid and frustrated… Not knowing who’s to be hit next. Some become too edgy and desperate for solutions. Some further wear a coat of hate towards others different from them. Towards humanity.  Continue reading

The Daily Prompt – Coincidence!

And the lady died.

Could it be a strange coincidence that she died on her birthday? I am yet to understand this phenomenon which happens occasionally in the passage of time.

Not just that she died. She died under very strange circumstances. She was a sister to a friend. A tear dropped from my eyes as I read her obituary on my Facebook Newsfeed three days ago. Continue reading
