The Renovated Me

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “New.”


No more of old me
the cry baby
the sullen woman
of 2014

Not a problem
if those for whom I care
do not care enough
love is free

No more of
living merely for me
new motto:
‘live for you’

Not to worry
if most of my dreams
go unfulfilled
some do come true

Life is a glass half full
not half empty
that will now be
my new way to live

The renovated me

Tug of war

Tug of war

he said this
she said this
then she said this
then he said this

she attacks
he defends
he attacks
she defends

thank you
she said
no more please
and away she walked

after ages
he broke the ice
said it was she
who began the fight

the whole day
she sulked
she denied
she cried

god knows why
she called him
and apologized

in the day
her phone buzzed
she smiled
she knew for sure
it was his call


This kind of tiff can occur between any two people, married or not married couples, same sex best friends or even say parents and their adult children. Often, one party feels pushed to the corner. Giving up ego is the only solution.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Tight Corner.”
