I stare at the ceiling wondering at the pathetic turn of events ,everything was normal until that fatal day I strolled into the crime site.My head moaned in pain,inflicted by continuous fatal intriguing thoughts that kept resonating.My heart indignantly yelled with slithering pain.I am a perfect dunce who fell in love with Mr prince charming,who never bothered to bestow me the merest satisfaction of an acknowledgement ,when he left,or perhaps ignored to gratify my ego by a mere wave of hand called good bye.
a girls heart
she craved an intense desire if,
beneath his stony resolve,
and the cold fortress he erected
around his heart,only if he
ever nurtured a feeling called love.
what happens in her heart
coz like a leaf fluttering down
in breeze ,his dashing looks quavered ,
her heart to persuade his path,
which she relentlessly followed quaffed in love.
but beneath his seducing eyes,
wasnt nay love nor lust,
lingered an unquenchable thirst to
witness her life abandon her
her love was her death in disguise.
THE DARKEST SERIES(blood and love….)
I am just like every other writer,my eyes always set out on a stringent hunt for stories and end up penning tales of my friends without their prior acknowledgment .And at last when they come to know about my stealthy attitude,they normally sport me an exasperated look remarking you never change. (more…)
It is nearly dawn, but no one in my house is awake, my bad leg woke me up. I straighten my spine on the chair as my eyes tread through the orchard in front of my lawn. I extend myself on my chair which has adhered to my daily routine. I sit here every morning since the day my father closed his eyes.
The monsoon strikes really hard, the cold wind gushes through my clothes, gauding an austere sense of pain in my midribs, making me slouch a little. It is rather obsolete to commemorate the last time I ever felt warmth, woolen blankets which I draped around me no way seems to reduce the fidgeting of my veins.
The rain has stopped but still droplets linger on the leaves fretting down as breeze rattle it. The humidity in air triggers the atrocious cough which mercilessly withers my bronchus. This was the weather once I adored, which never failed to induce a zest in my heart but now a strange fear entraps my heart.
The old age has withered me completely leaving me trembling like a leaf, infused with strange dislike for wet weather. The soil is wet, drenched suitable for hard toil, something a farmer like me would have rejoiced at, the out pour from heaven has always been a friend of mine.
The inhabitants of my house are awake I assume, I can hear rattling noises from the kitchen, my daughter in law must be awake. I have always considered her as an amenable daughter, but for her I remained a wretched creature, whom she detested wholeheartedly. Maybe my dwindling cough and austere sickness made her detest me.
I close my feeble eyes, wrapping my hands around myself to feel warm, though I knew it was just a futile attempt. My skin callous, my reflexes are fragile.
Few guests arrived as it is the eighteenth day of my life since my wife left me alone, in this world. I have always been absurd in front of her, her death has etched a scar on my heart ,which seems to augment every passing second. My heart throbs in pain, when my fragile memory spells her name. I loved her more than any compatriot. I can’t deny the fact that I plunged her into misfortunes. I have deprived her a lot of pleasures, but her devotion never wavered, she was all bearing ,encouraging and urbane, but I have been apathetic, howbeit I haven’t loved anyone half the way as I loved her not even myself.
She accepted my flaws and believed in my strength transforming me into a better father and grandfather. She made me a real man. We were really young when we embarked on our life together. I was an unruly young man; my wife was much younger with large almond eyes which sparkled in her flawless skin.
Her caricature was etched in my heart the very second our eyes met, She was gorgeous even after fifty years of marriage. Though her skin wrinkled, her hair turned grey, she was still beautiful. I can recollect once my granddaughter was lamenting that she wasn’t half the way good looking as her granny.
she was fragile like a lifeless flower in death, abandoning me for worse, thrusting a pain so intense in the fathoms of my heart, where I lay scrambled in her exodus memories.
My son walked out of the house stiffly, never bothering to provide me the frivolous pleasure of a sideways glance. I am not sure what was the grievous mistake I have committed to induce him to loathe me substantially. He traipsed down the porch ranting”Hey old man, don’t sit here, my friends will be here and I don’t want a feeble old man spitting and coughing in front of my house, do you get it?”He muttered without bothering to turn his credulous head towards me.
Tears jerk down my bony cheeks, I am an affluent person, I have showered him the opulence of my hard toil, what was the reason of this abhorrence my son directs towards me? I wish my soul parts my body, than lead such a pathetic life, turning a burden to my son.
The piercing pain in my heart aggravated every second, the words that eluded from my sons mouth pierced my heart than the sharpest dagger. The desolation perturbs my heart, the grievous pain when you are out of alternatives, the pain of betrayal. I tried to stand but my legs failed. I scrambled on my feet slowly mounted on my chair. The multitudinous fit of cough attacked me again. I witnessed my blood in my sputum. I knew I am dying, I desperately desired if death embraced me at least a minute early.
The trauma lingered for a brief second, slowly harrowed into a painful slumber unknowingly. I was half awake when few people entered my house. I lay withered and my weak eyelids dropping as I skipped my food and nobody bothered. My hunger was quenched by the merciless words uttered by my son.
I jerked suddenly as I recognized from my diminishing sight that it was my son’s friends from government sector, as my son and his wife are gusseted officers there. I wished to vanish , to move away, but the pain in my spine did hold me back.
I can witness a scorn on my son’s face.”What is that horrendous crime I ever did to him to detest my presence?”I again drifted into a slumber.
I was perplexed as I was awakened by the reverberating voice of my son and daughter in law. They were yelling at the top of their voice. My son walked up to me, infuriated with rage filled eyes “Haven’t I asked you old man? to crouch somewhere inside the house. What a useless scum you are? Do you know how much you cost me? And now you sit in front of the house just in order to instill a bad opinion about me to my friends, they might have assumed that I neglect you. Coughing and spitting you destroy the beauty of my furnished porch, everyone scorns to walk where you sit”
“But I “I said my voice crumbled by misery, unable to realize what was the mistake I did. I never spit outside the box which I usually spat, and I clean it every day. Even a speck of my spat hasn’t been splattered out. But my son treats me like an uncivilized person. His words tormented my heart like thousand sharp knives pulled into it.
My sons temper was allured by my daughter in laws brutal words which nearly broke my heart.
I slowly limped into my house I can hear my daughter in laws voice stating “why didn’t that old man die with his wife, he is living just to perish our life?”
I lay awake on my bed staring at the ceiling, even pain was unable to efface the imprints of this troubling incident. The pain was getting worse, but throbbing of my heart was a several million times greater than that of my body.
My heart screeched, weeping bitterly, soaked in anguish. I close my eyes stating “I will never be a burden again”.
The chair in the porch remained empty forever.
PS: This is based on a true story. Well not just based ,this story is true. Well this is a tribute to an old man who died due to cruel words of his beloved son. Let’s wish happy father’s day to this old man in heaven. For, he has been a wonderful father to his cruel son.

Darkness envelop the blue yonder,
Howbeit ,scarcely few hours
passed since daybreak,
dark clouds inundate the sky,
replacing blue by shades of grey,
laden with rain clouds smile
at me resembling my dearest ones,
when they hold pleasant surprises,
The lightening glistens its party lights,
turning me frivolous in delights,
Its splendor never cease to invite,
Music is on the roll,
the Dj thunder’s drums beat,
thawing my heart …
the breeze do never waits ,
it sways in this feeling of ecstasy ,
the leaves do flutter,
as droplets flicker ,
the heavenly steps it takes,
dancing in its magnificence ,
taunting me further.
How can I learn in
such a climate?
Doomed is my Vlsi exam.
thanking Mahesh for nominating me here is my last quote.I kind of liked this quote..
“Everyday we have lived wondering what the world will think about us,what my neighbor would think,will my mom be pleased,would my dad agree to it?what would boy or girl next door think about me?will my peers find it cool?
Have you ever asked your heart what it thinks about you?I think it is time to stop asking this what will others think,and start asking what do I feel
life starts when we stop living to please others and when you follow your heart’s will. “
I nominate three lovely bloggers.
thank you dears…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was nominated by Mahesh to write these quotes. I am sorry,I was a bit trampled and wasnt obviously in a good form yesterday,though the climate transformed into what I love (rainy),still everything has its forlorn side effects and it takes its toll on me confining me to my cot ,pathetically coughing …simply I hate it.
here are three more people I nominate
here goes my quote or still not sure whether this can be called a quote.
Inquisitiveness?should I call it,Or daydreaming .I have always aspired to come across a superman ,spider man or iron man in my life.Arent they cool,supercool?but have always turned a blind eye towards the real superhero of my life who is with me all along, mitigating my sorrows, who panics when my face lose its cheer, embodiment of love”MY DAD”.Why search for fictional superheros when we have our own real superheros?
I am grateful to Mahesh Mali(awesomenger) for nominating me,I must really tell he has a wonderful blog,an exceptionally good one,such a motivating blog can capture your attention so fast that you will end up lost in his posts one after other even before you recognize it.

I am basically a lethargic and I have no idea what I penned down here.If it is an acceptable range of what you call a quote or not,but still I have tried spurt out something it turned out like this.
“Future edged in a golden sword?uncertain,and intoxicating I know ,but still my future is the aftermath of my notions and action.So am I not the king of my destiny?“
