Devious Angel

I can’t tell if the tree hit me, ir the road just became too bumpy. Life had been a smooth landing part, for a short time. I had experienced the most desirous feeling of every man. The fact that I was seeing this charming angel, I knew that my life was a complete cycle.

In every situation, no man or woman hates to be loved, appreciated and respected. No one loves to be hated, even at the slightest moment.

My past love life has been characterised  with betrayals, heartbreaks and treachery. I thought I had reached the optimal point, where I would look back and say:

I finally did it

Little did I know that it was one of those moments in life, when the vicious cycle continues to laugh at you hysterically and sarcastically.

I had met the devious angel, disguised as an angel, ready to make my life a little, if not much better than how it has been.

Dressed to kill, a charming beauty and the never ending smile.

Those where her characters…at least on face.

But deep down, she was full of anger, hatred, treachery and all sorts of vices you could think of.

She has a good voice; the one that could make blowing wind stop, thunderstorms cool down, and make the world stop rotating.

This is a disguise…

I’m trying to recover from her bites, betrayal and fake love, but I must confess, it’s going to take the longest period ever. She refuses to let me go. Therefore, I’m uable to move on or move back!!!!
Once I’m done with this heartache, I’ll close the chapter of smiling with the devils disguised as angels.

Death amidst Wedding

The day would have been when she was to walk down the aisle to her new home. Regina had planned, how her life would be – two kids and a living in the suburban. She wanted to retire peaceful, after life on the fast lane, years later.

Everything was planned well until this morning.

Jack’s call wasn’t going through from 2 a.m. She thought that since it was a smartphone, it had run out of power and he was charging it, while it was off. He does that many times and this was no exception.

Regina and Jack had been dating for over three years. They first met in college where he was studying Economics while she was doing Sociology. As freshers, they had most of their time free. Not much to study, except, “trying to know each other”. There were many Friday evening parties to attend to, and a few class work to do. It was more of an idler’s place.

Three days before the intended wedding day, Regina was upbeat. Her wedding would be the best thing ever. Five of her cousins were unmarried yet each had at least three children – from different fathers, as the it was said. No one bothered to ascertain the truth behind that. After all, poking into people’s affairs, was mannerless!!!

The two had a great time that evening, anticipating the big day, which was to give them a green light on everything a man and a woman does; behind closed doors.

On Friday morning, she left his place for her mother’s so as to prepare for the wedding the following day.
She did not see the need to call Jack as she was sure good things were coming.

Early Saturday morning, at 2, she called Jack on his number. It was redirected to voice mail. She redialled, it went through then voice mail. She sent him a text message, and went back to sleep.

When Regina woke up at daybreak, it was one hour to the wedding ceremony. Jack hadn’t called nor had he texted back., She became agitated, but played it cool. Jack wasn’t the kind of person to go silent for long. She reminisced the moments they shared together and how selfish she was all along. When Jack made a mistake, no matter how minute it was, Regina would not talk to him for days. He never gave up on her.

But today, on their much anticipated D-day, Jack was nowhere to be seen. His phone was now off. She called his parents.
“Is Jack there?”

The person on the receiving end, started to sob. Regina could not understand why the sobbing.

“Jack is no more…”, said a depressedd voice. “He was found murdered in his aprtment last night.”

Then she broke into a wail….

Regina was so shocked that she dropped the phone and gave out an errie cry.

From There to Here

I have traversed a whole journey,

Back and force,

In quest to seek, get and own.

 

The journey has been without hitch,

At times it was a smooth trip,

But most of it, bumpy, rough and tough.

The journey must be travelled and completed.

 

After all, the past has been buried,

And present born with the future,

Then all pain shall be all gone.

 

With you by my side,

There is no turning back,

Nor crying or wallowing.

 

For your love is ever young,

Your passion is always hot.

Hotter than the tropical sun.

 

How we met,

How we be,

Only God knows.

You’ve wiped my despair,

And gave me a lease of life,

When everything was a gloom.

 

Today I stand here,

Tall as a soldier,

Ready to face ‘morrow.

 

I will always love you,

Always hold you,

Always be always with you.

If tomorrow never comes…..

No one knows the future…. what it holds or what it will give,

There is optimism, amidst the dry well.

I pray that tomorrow starts today

And gives me life that I so desire,

For if it doesn’t come, then I shall never be.

 

We are travellers, albeit vagabonds,

In the catastrophic confusion and chaotic world,

Which has lost hope.

 

You have made my life turn around,

Become the best,

And I reciprocated.

Hold me tight,

Let our tomorrow be live, shiny and full of life,

I have no other besides you,

That can complement you

Or be more equal than you.

Make me happy once again…

Love me endlessly, for you are the faith od my heart,

Joy of my life

And beam of my future.

 

Sad that you are leaving

I feel lonely, empty and in the dark,

The world has become, gruesome once again,

I never, in my little estimation, expected this.

The world is grimaced in gloom, pretending to give light.

 

I’m wounded…a wounded soldier,

Who despite the assurance of facing tomorrow,

Is now crawling, as I wait for darkness to overcome.

 

I pray that this is just a mirage,

Which, as it came, will fade into the oblivion,

So as to give me a new dawn,

For if the darkness comes, I shall bury myself to death.

 

Love is the true recourse, for a wounded heart

A dejected soul, which languishes in pain.

I’m going down on my knees to beseech the Almighty,

For HIS unparallel intervention, in this life that I’m living.

From There to Here

I have traversed a whole journey,

Always hold you,

Always be always with you.

A New Way Out

Sometimes I meander through the natural beauty,

Of this endless world, the home of angels,

And with the eyes stretched like muscles of a parrot,

I envy those who survive at the expense of arrogance.

 

This morning, I met yet another charm,

Whose innocence eyes of gods,

Let my heart burn with warm rage.

I pretended not to notice her,

But this was a lie!!!

Then out of the unknown courage,

With sweaty palms and pits,

I faced her…..waiting for the f’dback.

 

Then in trying to delve my innocence,

And the better me, she held my arms,

Placed on her already exploding Everest-kind.

That I had no option, save to act and react.

 

As my mind raced up and down,

I found myself where I was least expecting,

Eating from the Forbidden Fruit!!!

With little concern about the watchful angles.

 

I no longer feel the urge of stopping,

Nor do I entertain the thought of ever leaving,

For it enslaves my recluse,

And steals my innocence.

 

The natural heat is forever bursting,

But a choice, into the unknown…

…a new way out.
