The Conquistador

Dejected and broken, Gazed at the seducing waves of the sea. With each ebb and flow, Into the waters, she wanted to flee. *** One more rejection, Another failed interview. Getting a job wasn’t easy, But that, she already knew. *** All alone and abandoned, Tired and hopeless. No future in sight, She thought she…

Yin and Yang

Dealing with her unstable attitude was a tough task for him. Tougher it    was for her, handling his unpredictable mood swings. Pulling her hair,       he let out his anger. Bite him, she always did in her furious state.        Always apologize, he did with her favorite chocolate. Cooking his…

Savior

One wall down, another one to go, Every bit carefully, he had to take it slow. The number of walls increased with his age, Behind the last one, he locked himself in a cage. Unable to trust and refusing to do so, Years of betrayal left him with no amigo. Others’ concern for him, out of…

As independent as the sun, she shone, By her radiance, he was smitten.  Not long before he was burnt, repeating The same mistake as Icarus had…

Lone Wolf

Wait patiently, he did; despite Patience not being his strongest suit. Tried his best to untangle the mystery, To find out, if there was any dispute. Confused he was, most of the time, Unable to ascertain whether he was fooled. Trust her, he did with all his life, But now, his doubtful mind overruled. His…

Walking Corpse

Consumed, not completely, by anger and rage, he felt like ditching her with utter disdain. Of all the things, she could do to him, turning him into an empty shell; her best achievement. The more he gave, the more she took; blind, to his painful visage and deaf, to the muffled screams. He waited and…

A Good Night

Is this the time to tease me? Or is it that you really want to please me? It’s so hard to guess what you think, When all my mind is lost when you blink. So come on, stop pulling my hair like this, And just let me sleep with a good night kiss. Ohhh, so…
