Daily Prompt – Torn


The sails where torn apart

by the same wind which sailed the boat

creating a wreckage beyond repair

and pushing it off to a no mans land.

Yet the sail was hopeful that the same wind

would one day take the boat ashore to

the promised land.

Ships cross the barren land seeing the wreckage

and tells the passengers story of how the wind

wrecked the sail boat,

as a story of once a sailor who trusted the wind

and set sail to conquer the sea

but just got tangled in the wind

which was to show him the sea.

Like the torn sail, so was the sailor

torn yet the wind, the wind never escapes his

mind for he still hopes for it to take him to that promised land

which the wind promised.

And without the one who promised the sailor

to be all along the journey…….






Expectation for no expectation


What to expect when you have let go of expectations

but subtly deep down have an hope that the

unexpected to happen.

After all it were the expectations which broke

making these words ,these rantings,these abrupt

out pour of grief, anger pain.

Cause we all have an expectation to not have an expectation

but the heart, the courteous heart,

it just cant keep up.

After all not having an expectation itself is an expectation !!

Somewhere we all want to be

that lonely fearless warrior with nothing

to lose…..

We all have it , few have it loads few have it in

the tinest level…..

The Tantrum

Ignorance is a bliss for those;

who do not have to deal with the consequence .

For what can be the consequence for the ignorance ?

Is it downfall, is it a heartache or is it a forever etched in

the dusty chambers of the soul.

Or is it just a blissful state of mind where

the present is unaffected by the past.

Is it the confusion that circles around like

soul vultures in the darkness of the night.

can it be the conscience trying to show

a pit which is smaller yet showcasing it

as a deep hell hole.

It is different things to different people.

For some life is a camera so they keep smiling forever,

for few it is a battle field they fight with aggression.

It is all but a beautiful melodrama

consistent and evident wrapped gracefully

with one thing “perception”.









Dancing with darkness

As the stage was set with

a million light and one spot light

the heart started its walk towards

the locked doors of the past and knocks;

the mind begs for mercy not to

open the door, the soul laughs at both.

In the end the heart won and the door opens

the walk turns into a ballad between

reality and dreams.

The eyes sprinkles water on the occasion,

the souls gives a shout out so

loud that all go deaf expect oneself..

Darkness looks so pretty amidst all this


There is just rage warming the cold heart.

There is guilt, there is pain

there is countless prayers to the unseen.

And then comes out the devil

calling out for a dance.

As the soul lends out the hand,

both dance in the darkness

shouldering one and another.

There was no harm from darkness

as society warned, the perception

towards darkness changed the day

light gave up on him

and darkness was the only ally who stood by.

alcohol is the drink which can

partly drench his thirst and sooth .

Her smile though was more intoxicating than alcohol itself,

so strong that even years after she left

it was still etched in his heart and soul till date.

Every tear that is shed out

is in remembrance of the time spent together

it is the only thing left in life for she was no longer there.

trying to find her amidst every crowd,

created anxiety and thus he secluded himself

from society.

Trying to find her knowing it will

hurt him, all he wanted was to just see her

from distance at least, cause all he wanted

was to know if she is doing well

cause she was the princess he once fought battles along side with.

She was a majestic being

she was humble at one point in life

and all that was etched onto his soul

that what ever was the betrayal he encountered

from her was perceived as  an act of necessity.

There he stood dancing with the darkness

as all these thoughts haunting inside and outside

was that smile and careless outlook

as if nothing really happened to the bruised soul

In response to the daily post – daily prompt challenge .



The pretentious , the con man

the best scam ever made

was white washed

just by the smile of honesty.

The anger dissolved into

tears of joy.

The urge to win became

an race to attain peace.

All it took was to pretend

that he did not care.

that is all it took for him

to realize that

there still exists true love;

in the form of a smile

A transformation


She transformed herself

into a mighty warrior

for she had seen battles

and she had seen the blood shed,

she could not take it no longer

she did not wait for

the knight in shiny armour

She became the knight in


She took the oath of honour with pride

for she transformed herself from a

victim to a warrior.

Purpose –

The search began for the purpose of life,

the journey was started under the dark moonless night

the stars served as dots,

and the mind started connecting the dots.

Suddenly the aimless life seemed to be filled

with curiosity and appreciation for oneself.

The urge to prove to oneself was more important

than proving to others.

The mind saw the things which the eyes

could not see ..

may be that was the purpose of life to find oneself

while being lost in the darkness

and realize that we are the light that we are in search of.

The stupidity of others did not bother

cause the mind understood that they are

lost and yet they do not realize it.

Judgmental person turned into a silent observer.

For he had found the purpose of his life

which was to find himself through

himself for that was the purpose of life

to be found by oneself in a jungle of many.
