Satanic!

Naive tender minds

noxious intentions molest

caustic scar mars life

The Past, Present & Future!

Recently I was watching a rerun of the Bollywood film “Dear Zindagi” on television. A beautiful movie where the protagonist is overwhelmed by an incident of her childhood, which reflects on her present life relationships.  Her personal life seems to be in doldrums. A chance meeting with a Psychologist, helps her resolve her problems giving her the confidence to view life with a beautiful perspective. Definitely, a movie many can relate to, worth a watch!

There is one line in the movie which the therapist uses during one of the sessions. “Don’t let the past blackmail your present to ruin a beautiful future”.  Such a profound statement, isn’t it?

Life can throw quite a few unpleasant challenges at us. Many, we shrug off, some teach us a lesson, while a few hurt us, blemishing our personality to a great extent. At times, we reel under its burden, unable to shrug it off. This manifestation definitely needs to be addressed and set right, else, it could eclipse our future too!

 

The indelible scar of the past

meanders in the mind’s crevices

whispers secret messages

forays uninvited into dreams

entraps the present

sings haunting lines in hushed tones,

emerges from obscurity

to cast a gloomy shadow

on the future.

Untangle the web of antiquity

steer life on course

before,

the hollow memories of yore

pushes the soul into

an abyss of no return!

 

 

 

Heart Broken!

In response to secretkeeper’s weekly writing prompt #139, to use the following five words or their synonyms in a poem/fiction.

Write|Never|Place|Mark|Place

She writes her memoirs

with the ink of her tears

that pour out odious feelings

on an emotionally tainted paper.

 

The dark side of his personality

adorns a nefarious cloak

his wounds  scar her soul

leaving her heart broken.

 

Reeling under the shock of his callous behavior

the place holds painful memories

she makes a promise to her resilient spirit

to walk out, never to return.
