Sometimes I reek of stale dreams
and shards of splintered vows pierce my hopes
The horizon is tinged with hues of regret
As reminiscences of a promised happiness take me to places I don't want to go
That's when I shrug off my cape of despair
As I inhale lungfuls of faith
And hem my blessings with gratitude
And begin to rewrite my fate

Word Prompt : On The Beach: Written for the #15to50 Challenge

On The Beach

An indignant blush crept up her neck and bloomed on her face. 
How dare he use such language, she fumed inwardly!
Twisting the ends of her napkin in her hands, she was contemplating a quick exit when the waiter
repeated, “For a tangy drink, shall I suggest a, Virgin Sex On the Beach, ma’am?”

Linking this to the Fiction Challenge ‘From 15 to 50′

The Husband Chronicles - Part 21

The Husband has developed amnesia. 

The convenient kinds.

He 'forgets' what all I cook/have cooked, despite eating it all. 
Every bit of it. AND enjoying every morsel.

Now you know why I Facebook all my food pictures?

Three in a row #15to50

It was time to be ruthless. Being merciful hadn’t paid.
It was her peace of mind that was paramount now. They didn’t matter anymore.
She spotted her targets. It was now or never.
Taking a deep breath, she aimed.
Whack! Whack! Whack!
How harmless they looked in death. 
Three dead mosquitoes.

#30DayLetterChallenge - #Day1 - Write a letter to your best friend

Hello there, Best Friend!

We've been inseparable ever since we first met, haven't we? Through so many adventures, crazy times, good times, bad times, really bad times and hey, before this gets way too serious, some really  fun times too! We've grown up and grown wise together.
I've enjoyed everything more because you were there with me, egging me on, chiding me and yes even holding me back when needed. Though there were, and  still are, times I just wish you would shut up and disappear. 
However, you've become such a habit now that it is impossible for me to imagine being without you.
Thank you for being there always, and for pointing me to the right path, my BFF, My Conscience.
May we be together always.

Reunion : #15to50

They started planning their school reunion with great gusto. All united with the thought of meeting after ages. As the euphoria wore off, differences of ideas crept in. Bickering was next. Pettiness followed soon after, with shades of meanness coloring an ugly picture. They met alright, never to meet again.
