(U)ndecided desitiny

That last text message said it all

The fall of their 6yr long relationship it was

He hated her or was she undesired, he never told

There was no purpose of survival, thought she

Just when his brother proposed her for marriage

The just revenge was all she wanted.


(M)urder Most Foul

She looked in horror down at the red liquid spreading across her hands. She had never intended for this to happen. What started as innocent play was now murder most foul.

Rushing to wash her hands, she glanced at the knife that had done the deed. Then, back at the subject, that lay in a pool of its own blood.

She heard footsteps and quickly gathered up all the evidence and disposed of it in a plastic bag outside the door.

Turning, she smiled at her mother, who stood at the door to the refrigerator and asked her, Mala,my dear, what on earth have you done with all the tomatoes?’

The Sun rode away in his chariot for a hike
Leaving Dusk in control
She handled the show for sometime
Before the moon marched on with his starry army
To take the empty throne Sun had left behind
Moon took it in a swift show without any struggle
Only to have forgotten that his evil and powerful big stepbrother Sun could turn the tables around
The time fluttered it’s wing signalling the Moon to hide
Dawn was here announcing of Sun’s arrival and his claim of the throne
Moon decided to sort it out once and for all with the big brother
Deciding who is the rightful claimant of the throne
The vivacious Earth with her drop dead gorgeous looks walked in right then
And settled the ages long battle with her brilliant yet simple solution
That Day would be Sun’s assistant and Night would be Moon’s
Maintaining their calendars of time being divided equally
And implement the solution effectively by Moon and Sun taking turns in being the rightful owners of the throne.

(G)lorious Death

Hundreds lay at his feet
Sweat trickled down his forehead
The one that was approaching seemed like the last
He loosened the reins of his horse
And rode into the approaching one
One swift move and the enemy was slayed
Only then did he notice
The dagger struck in his torso
He had no regrets, for they had won
He held his head high
And with a bow to the battlefield
Said his final goodbye.

(F)inal Kill

***This is final part of the previous post (E)scape the Fate ***

The truth shattered her wits and tore her love apart
The love for him and justice for her father
She was annoyed with the truth being held this far
She knew not what her step should be
To stab him to death or let the law do the justice
She wanted to scream but the choke was too strong
All she could do was excuse herself and try to rush too far
How could he kill her dad?
She just couldn’t have her thoughts aligned
The pain was too throbbing and the tears that fell apart
There seemed no end for this beginning and relief seemed afar
She had no family distant or near
The one she wished to hold onto was a killer
The life was at a standstill in the church in fear
The fear of the hanging decision in her Fiance’s eyes
No point for the wait is all she thought
She was ready to take her vows no matter what
The determination gave her the strength to gather herself and walk back in there
Just a last thought she had
She needed a touchup
The mirror was the only proof
She walked in there with a sense of relief
The ‘I do’ ringed in the sir
And they both lay still
It was the final kill and her revenge
Her chosen path and embracing the fate

(She had killed him and herself with her poisonous kiss)

(E)scape the Fate

He walked down the aisle alongside her

Immersed in the thought with the burden of that big secret in his heart

Holding her hand and a forced smile on his face

Just before he passed her hand to her fiance

He managed to whisper the big secret in her ear

The fiance was her father’s killer.
