Christmas pudding

Honey, what’s for dessert?

Season’s favourite-Christmas pudding! Taste some?

Umm …yummy but has a funny flavour.

That must be Silvadene.

What!!

Darling, it got burnt a bit. So I applied the ointment…

Ack!

(Author’s note- “Silver sulfadiazine (INN, or silvadene) is a topical sulfonamide/silver[1] antibacterial used as a topical cream on burns.)

Forever…always

 

Your honeyed lies dazzle me. Am too myopic to see the veil of deception. The sword of reality cuts deep. I bleed tears. You leave. The acid of betrayal spills, turning the basin red.

The verbal beast

Trifextra: Week Ninety-One

This weekend Trifecta has the following on the menu for Trifextra challenge-

It’s now time for some Trifextra fun. Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone. http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.eAWaxdhd.dpuf

This was indeed very tough and I almost gave up before deciding to just go with the flow.Hope it is not too bad 😛

The Verbal beast

 

Hiding between the vocal chords

it creeps up on the tongue

caustic words of derision

cutting down everyone

cares not for enemies made

nor the friends lost-

Sarcasm, the beast

spares no one!

Am I losing it?

Trifextra: Week Ninety

 

It is time for Trifextra. For this weekend’s prompt,this is what Trifecta has to say-”  Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia, wrote, “It’s like the smarter you are, the more things can scare you.”  We are looking for a 33-word explanation of what scares you (or your character). “

Here are my 33 words:-)

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Am I losing it?

 

It does not stalk me

but lurks in

unexpected corners

peeking from

the mirror of

forgetfulness,

leering at my

growing inability

to remember-

hauntingly  real

yet distant

this

 fear of

losing my mind!
