Worse

The effect was worse
after the break up
she stole several hearts
now hers was apart

wearing make up
as her happy mask
drinking and smoking
were her only tasks

preparing herself
for early death
she stood by the sea
with a gun and tears of regret

Daily #prompts on Twitter in which one can write a very short story or a poem. Today’s #prompt is “Worse” and I wrote a poem.

  1. Wow! Really an awesome poem, My Dear! So much feeling of pain and regret (maybe a bit of Karma too??). Very powerful and sad too! Especially loved your line – “wearing make up, as her happy mask” – brilliant!!

    1. Thank you so much. Happy that you liked it.
      Yes. Cant deny Karma to not play its role. Everything, as far as I have observed, moves in circle. I would have to research on this if there is some other explanation attached. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‚

      1. Ooo, Liked that moving in a circle! Sometimes the crooked pathway is really better for us than the wide and easy road we thought we should’ve taken?? I am so impressed with your writing and thoughts!!!
