Bottled up inside
were the words
she never said
no longer wanted
that always gnawed
no one ever read
that forever haunted
All of it, bottled inside,
inside, she let them hide
bubbling and simmering
a hot molten lava
waiting to erupt……
How does my mind does do it, I often wonder
Create an ocean from a ripple as I ponder ….
One thought leads to another n then another
Till there’s an avalanche jostling each other…..
My mind spins on and my pulse races
My life story goes through its paces..
The good the bad and the ugly as the cliche goes
Flits across the mind’s eye – the highs and the lows
The promises and the lies, the smiles and the tears
The minutes run into hours, days, months and years!
Stop creating your ripples and reflections, oh my mind
Let me rest a while, let me go and leave you behind!
Bitter is dark and lonely place,
A place I’ve seen face to face,
Not proud of it, just being honest
Triggered by events not the best..
One has to fight tooth and nail
With your mind and never fail!
Daunting task, but needs to be done
Scars may show, but battle is won…
Mind at peace, sleep is a friend again
No demons to slay, no thoughts to pain..
Bitter is a place not to go ever again
Life is life, some to lose, some to gain!

Yippee, she was on her way home,
It made her feel happy n then some!
Hark!! Was that the entire story?
C’mon, girl, out with real history!!
Oh, Yes! she would see him tonight
They would talk, debate, laugh n fight!
And before the train journey was over and done,
Of many ideas exchanged, some would come undone!
Her quickened heartbeat of anticipation,
Told her this was a friend for every season!
In her dreamy smile, her nervous actions,
Lay exposed her own heart’s desire n reasons!

In response to Daily One word Prompt :
The eternal bane of my life
My ‘lifestyle’ styles my life!
It’s been a long journey
To ‘well-fed’ from ‘Scrawny’!
Life’s style to be blamed
No points ever claimed!!
I love to eat and sometimes, guess I live to eat!
Sweets a must, icecreams a way to beat the heat!
Exercise regimen here today, gone tomorrow,
Fill me and my burdened heart with equal sorrow!
Tomorrow’s another day, a new way to change my style
Today, let sinful munchies n guilty sweets be my lifestyle!
