A reason to smile

Standard

The playful wind tried
to draw me in,
draw me out
of my sullen whim
I rebeled,
repelled
with all my might,
refused to give in,
give up
without a fight

The sun too gazed,
tried to erase
my darkened mood
with its charming rays
The rays
could not touch me
inject me,
infect me
with life,
the rays
could not affect me

But when
the silver moon beckoned
The temptress,
in her element,
fearless and strong,
giving the blue night
a reason to smile
I knew then,
I too had got mine.
A reason to
live and love and hope,
just be,
and the strength
to cope.
The truth was right there,
underlined
The moon was right..
The choice was mine.

This is my entry for this week’s Trifecta writing challenge. Do check out the other entries too!

How the mighty have fallen

Standard

Look at her, oozing confidence
Oh! Its almost obscene
Such a conceited, cocksure, ding-a-ling
the world has never seen.

She knows it all, or so she thinks
Us lesser mortals aren’t worth her time
She won’t even listen to what you say
Unless you can say it in rhyme

Her feet never touch the ground
Her nose is always in the sky
Where the world totters, she dances through,
proudly prancing by

She’s got the world inside her palm
Like things can never go wrong
They never did either, not until
that fateful day came along

The day nature failed to respond
to the touch of her magic hand
Suffice to say, things did not go
at all as she had planned

Luck finally did a turnaround
while she walked Her hallowed halls
Its sad, but strangely satisfying
when the mighty finally fall

Her crimson cheeks were a sight to behold
Her hands and feet had gone all cold
Humbled, she looked ready to fold
Who could say she’d once been bold??

I may berate but cannot hate
for she is me and i am her
What happened, i shall never tell
I’ve locked it away in a secret cell
The lesson was learnt when things went wrong
Now make what you want to of this song

Pretend games

Standard

I’ve thought of a game,
will you play with me?
Just close your eyes,
come away with me

This is how
all tales are spun
Lets pretend
we’re on the run
Escape into
the wild unknown,
fly where
no birds have flown

Up, up and over
the hills we go,
coming down’s easy,
we just slide through the snow.
There’s no one watching,
lets run real wild
Isn’t this great,
being a child?

There’s a stream up ahead,
lets splash right in,
pretend its summer
and enjoy a cool swim
Time flies so quick,
when you’re having fun
What a marvellous sight,
this setting sun!

And then, suddenly,
in the blink of eye…
I trip,
you fumble,
reach out,
but i tumble,
try to hold on
to my thoughts,
but now they’re
all jumbled…

The moment’s gone
the game is through
I loved our lil adventure
I hope you did too!
