10 to 2

10 PM whisper fights
turned into 2 AM howling sessions,
2 AM howling nights;
2 AM turbulence.

It's like they weren't meant to be;
tied together to part ways, eventually.

10 PM whisper fights
turned into 2 AM howling sessions,
2 AM howling nights;
2 AM turbulence.

Led up to a divorce.
*One found another, 
the other grabbed a drink.

It's just 7 PM, but one's already tucked in the kids,
and the other, already slurring their words.

*"One found another" indicates that one person found another person, whereas the other went to alcohol.

Me.

I have fat arms and fatter thighs,
but that doesn't stop me from being slightly wise. 
"They're a part of me, a part of who I am",
oh! can someone, anyone hear my cries?
I think I'll wear a dress tonight.
//
A chipped tooth plus a crooked smile,
shouln't stop me from shining bright.
*If the fat one is going to wear it,
I'll too wear a dress too tight.
//
Tangled, frizzy, untamed hair,
don't stop me from dancing wild.
Some day this too will be a fad,
I say, to my child.
//
Just some crazy people famous for illicit things,
"Notorious", says the world.
One good thing they choose to do,
"fake", says the world.

*Not trying to hurt anyone here. I'm showing you how the girl from the first few lines, is confident and wears dresses, against the strong stereotype of fat girls not wearing dresses. So the girl with the chipped tooth is thinking that if the fat girl can where a dress, then why should she shy away?

Mysterious #8 Another

Long eyelashes,
soft and shiny mane;
a muscled body,
the colour of grain.

Loud grunt,
a stronger step,
*heard a whistle*
The Horse took another then.

TTIH #3 falling through the floor

Another "gushy" post (it's just that a few of you have been asking me to write stuff like this, this is hopefully the last of it). If you don't like this, please do go through this or this or my entire blog :)

"So you fell for him?" He said out loud,
"Instead of me", He thought.

- "I needed a distraction" she said;
"From other distractions", she thought, looking at him.


- in reference to falling for you so hard, 
I couldn't even feel the floor.
