choices

Friday
Doped
She asked “Don’t you miss talking with me?”
“Yes, I do, but let’s stick to what we decided”
She nodded.
The burning questions are asked again.
In a surgical stupor she repeated herself.
Yet she remembered.
Happy tenth to the both of you.

Saturday
Empty folder.
The choices remain
Oh, is everything okay?
Surgery? What happened?
Thanks! Can’t believe it’s ten already.

Yet,
An empty folder.

Sunday
Empty Old folder.
The choices remain
Oh, is everything okay?
Surgery? What happened?
Thanks! Can’t believe it’s ten already.
Are you alright?
You have got to take care of yourself.
Yeah, we are off on vacation.

Yet
An empty old folder.


Monday

Empty Old and Tired Folder
The choices remain
Oh, is everything okay?
Surgery? What happened?
Thanks! Can’t believe it’s ten already.
Are you alright?
You have got to take care of yourself.
Yeah, we are off on vacation.
Am so sorry you feel this way.
Time wasn’t right you know.
I was scared.
It will happen one day.
I know.

Yet
An empty, old and tired folder.

Tuesday
The choices:
None.
A day focused.

Wednesday
They meet.
A few thousand seconds.
Yet, he remains
Stoic.
Stubborn.
On his Belief.

She tries
A frail mind battles
Yet
Faith trickled out
Trust left behind a drought
One last call
She asked to wait
She had to set the record straight
‘We’?
It was always a ‘you’
You decided.
You left.
Letting you free
Was the hard part.

Do I know you?
Stupor from I awake
Closing the door on you?
Piece of cake.

  1. Baph: Coming from a guy, that’s refreshing :)

    Archana: Am okay. I always am :)

    SK: Yay! So now you can explain it to folks who are standing around scratching their heads? :P

  2. Saagar: New or not, apparently my fables can send even the faithful reader packing :

    deitaDi: ROFL. :)

    Adithya: Not good enough, you should sound confident like SK :P

  3. Hey..I myself don't remember how I got onto your blog, but I'm so glad I did ! I've been just sitting all day n reading previous entires one after the other. I love your style of writing and can't say which one partiular piece would be the best. Your fables are beautiful. Do consider publishing a book please :)
    And I do wish a we could have complete endings for some of them…thoughts keep lurking at the back of the curious reader's mind as to what could it have been…or can we actually know the ending may be later :)
    Keep up the awesome work!

    • Nikki, Thank you for your lovely and generous comment. The feedback is absolutely appreciated and I will bear that in mind. Some fables, I prefer leaving them un-finished as they are open for interpretation by the reader. Some of them don't have a perfect ending in my head, so why force one on? But yes, I know the nagging feeling :-)Thanks once again, made my day! :-)

  4. hey…Glad you liked the feedback…just read your fable-'a gift'…and thats like really one of the best ! :-)
    I still insist that you should feed us with the endings for a few totally thought provoking fables. I guess I'll make a list and send them to you ..hehe… :-)
    Reading your blog makes my day! :-)

    • At the risk of going all emo' on you, let me just say that your comment on 'a gift' brings a sense of poignant gratification that brings a smile on my face. Thank you dear girl. :-) lol@list. Sure, send it over! :)

I'd love to hear what you have to say, do write back!
