Peculiar 

peculiar thing I found this morning. After emptying the contents of Son’s laundry bag into the washer, I went to his bedroom to hang it back inside his closet. I looked at his bed, it wasn’t made. He never makes his bed, guessing his mother will see to it–unable to let her hands rest a bit. I’m irked that he has left all the good habits I instilled in him as a teenager.

Much to my horror I could see a wee lizard sharing his bed. My heart started thumping loudly in my ears. Son must have kept it warm throughout the night with his body heat, keeping it nice and cozy.

Now what to do?

I certainly didn’t want to pick it, but the thing was Son wasn’t at home, and for the next three to four hours I didn’t expect him to be back home. I couldn’t stay by the side of bed, keeping a watch on it till Son’s return. I couldn’t soil the sheet by thumping it with a slipper. There was nothing left but to be brave, and remove it by myself.

I ran to my bathroom to get a glove on my hand, praying all the while it won’t do the disappearing act on me. I grabbed a paper towel, and in one go swooped on the icky thingy, and after dropping him in the bowl, I flushed him away. 

Finally my heartbeat turned normal.

Hesitate 

I hesitate 

To soar to fly

In the vast expanse of the sky

Old fears of falling

Getting hurt

Gnaw at my heart

Pull me back

If only

I could get past them

Flung them far away

I hesitate

Promises

Promise you will love me always

I hope a promise  you won’t break

Promise you will come back to me

Promise that you won’t make me wait

If the promises you make are not true

Into a thousand pieces my heart will break

(Sheen-October 2016)

Disappointment

Disappointment mars my face

I will it to free my aching heart

Lift the inky dark clouds away

I should have kept my expectations at bay

Icy claws of regret squeeze my heart to this day

Conceal

Conceal when you betray someone’s trust

For the burden is yours, let it stab your own heart

Cause you can never put together again

The jagged broken pieces of the other person’s heart

For peace of mind is forever lost

(Sheen-March2016)

Shelf

  

My shelves are bare and empty

Cause my things are lying back home

I aim to bring them over

Whenever I can go back home

Till then I will be unbearably waiting for them

Shutting the drawstrings on my purse

Lest my erstwhile heart makes me shop

For things I have back home

(Sheen-March2016)
