A life cycle…



She hears the sound of the thunder when it hurts the sky, sound of animosity when a relationship cracks, sound of helplessness when a glass falls on the hard floor before breaking into pieces.

But everything seems incoherent when she hears the persistent silence of a dream that is broken into a million of razor-edged, depressing realities. In silence,her reality becomes a dark companion of a bleeding anticipation ; life blooms again ,with a nomad heart .

She knows that a broken dream is an absconding truth, like a lullaby that sleepless nights tries to locate in darkness, to make peace with restless days. Yet she keeps wandering, searching for a magic glue to fix her melting hopes on the sharp edges of  those preserved pieces : only hope can produce refurbished dreams.


130 words for Trifecta: Week 104 .I used the weekly prompt :COMPANION [a :  one that is closely connected with something similar ,b :  one employed to live with and serve another ] .


I am linking this post with  “Five Sentence Fiction – Pieces” , I used the concept of “Pieces”  in this fiction here.


Today , we are celebrating International Label Day at Rara’s place . She invented this holiday for us, the word lovers.I am participating there with my favorite bloggers. I also got my picture clicked ( It’s really easy to stay behind the camera!) to wear a label that defines me . Visit Rara and  don’t miss the rawr!

  4. I could not link up on trifecta . 😦 The link was closed by the time I published and hopped on to their page to link. sad story of a multi-tasker! 😦
