Hope ... still remains!

A brisk walk so long
Cool breeze combing through my hair,
The pestilence-wilted leaves
Turned inside out,
So that green leaves manage
To slither out
Hope remained,
It’s not the end of the world just yet.

Rise on!

Talk about you, or Retell a story.  You will find a chord Strikes closely. A story of the phoenix Which rises from ashes.  The hullabaloo of drama That it encases. So it does after  It decomposes, A natural cycle  It endorses.  The tale of yours So it does differ, Don't let nature alone Slide like a winner.  To be quelled Or crushed  Or grounded Or scrunched. Yet scrappy enough To come up from flames Burn you all up, Yet you are game. You recover from  The torment the tease An indomitable  Soul with such vim. To Win or not, it Extinguishes. A clobbered loon Yet it pushes.  Rise on you mate  Not Phoenix so reverent, Because when you do You need no precedent. ___________________________________

It separates with the flail arms. A bad moonwalk figures in, Headbangs loosen up the tense nerves. The sweats finally drip down the icy bode. The deads don’t sweat so she’s alive.     The heat fuses the thinking neurons. She wants to live and splash water around. The pirouette shuns her mind, Because it shouldn’t walk around Unsupervised. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------                                               Pic Courtesy: shutterstock.com

She sat down at the door with a thump. Completely unconscious of where she was. If answered honestly, she would not recognise where she was, how she ended up there. I guess God is yet not the cruellest. Or may be her subconscious led her to his door. How much can a person really speculate about another person’s behaviour? Everyday drama must have pushed her to relinquish the control. The control was not helping in any way. She had been learning so much in so little time. Coping mostly. Loss of her mother, father shagging her childhood nanny and eventually forgetting to call his only daughter. They may have happened when she was a child, but the memories seemed imprinted on her mind even that day. Clear as sunshine. She had never been able to process them. Learnings which came at the time when there was nothing that tickled her nerves, excited her breaths. Even today she would smile all the time, laugh at the easiest jokes. She would accept the tedium of those jokes and yell,”They are
