NAPOWRIMO-Shelter from the storm


Specks of dust fell

There was no time to yell

Everything was washed away

The storm swarmed mercilessly for its prey

Shelter probably came last on the minds

First efforts were made to take everything and leave nothing behind!!!

Irked

I longed for you,
setting aside my life
dreaming about our future together
your words were my solace
accepting everything under the sun
willing to change and adjust to uncertainties
without any  prejudices or complains
I was ready to walk on unknown path
resting my complete faith in you.
But, what a mockery you made
of our so called relation
the one that boasted to the rooftops
about humility and maturity
about being modern and upright
dropped down the mask off his face
when situations decided to take a test
you suddenly changed to easy favoured side
lamenting old orthodox beliefs
scathing me indirectly
and projecting you a scapegoat of events
I know I am no perfect
life has been both good and bad
But, I never lost hope to break the shields
or walk ahead or be ashamed of any shortcomings
Your wrath made me angry, dejected and hurt
that shook my faith in life and its doings
But, I am bold enough and not foolish like you
to walk away midway or breeze past like an dry storm
I am really thankful for that !!!

DISRUPT LIVES

It was raining heavily that day,
The water whooshed furiously through the trees, the parked vehicles and the crowded homes.
It turned darker quite early than usual,
The winds thundered mounting the fear in the minds of many.
Somewhere in the middle of the street, lived a  couple with 2 kids,
The kids were crying  listening to the loud thump of the glass panes,
Their parents comfort couldn’t mellow them down looking at their rooms almost flooded with water.
The Tv broke down only to inform them, that their neighborhood was struck by something called The Tsunami.
The couple supressing their own dreaded  fears  held their little kids close to them,
And before they could react, the irated waters engulfed them suddenly!!!
Loud wails echoed all through the neighbourhood,
A once busy clean street was doomed by the floods, now seen only distroyed homes and floating bodies…….
