Drabble Prompt - Sound

Nobody looks happy on a Monday morning, unless they have good reason to. This occurring in one's youth, is next to impossible.

So 'his' radiant smile contrasting the miserable faces of my classmates, was almost disturbing at 8 A.M on a Monday morning.

Almost.

Because my curiosity that piqued at every mundane detail about him was giddy with excitement, as he spoke to his friends.

Funny how I have absolutely no problem in ignoring every sound in the universe, clinging to the happy words that spilled from his lips.

'I got her number!'

All I heard after that was void.

WISH UPON A DANDELION

Please take me...

To a place,
Where the world is magical,
And not superficial.

To a place,
Where the flowers are in full bloom,
Swaying to the wind's tune.

To a place,
Where the kookoo's sweet song,
Echo all day long.

To a place,
Where sun rays glisten through,
Trees that canopy brooks.

To a place,
Where lakes are clear blue,
Reflecting the sky's hue.

To a place,
Where peacocks dance gracefully,
To the sound of rain with glee.

To a place,
Where new sprouts peek through,
Fresh earth covered in dew.

To a place,
Where we can be carefree and young,
Running like gazelles under the sun.

Malady

Have you ever laid in your bed,
Starring up at the ceiling overhead,
Feeling pain with every breathe,
Unable to move or call for help,
With tears blurring your vision,
Sleep deprived and desperately wishing,
To slip past all the suffering,
And drift into oblivion...

DON'T SPARE THE ROD

One of the worst things to learn as a parent,

Is to hear that your child is being bullied.

But,

There's one thing worse than that.

To learn that your child, is a bully.

UNIQUE

They say we are unusual, 
Call us unconventional, 
Beause we don't fit the bill, 
Of what they think is usual. 

Stop being judgemental, 
We aren't Run-of-the-mill,
And hold your horses still, 
Our singularity is incredible.

#Skylark Challenge 200 - #1
-------------------------------------
SWIMMING AGAINST THE TIDE

The night was cold. Freezing cold. 

Rain pelted hard against his jacket as he swerved through the crooked lanes of the residential area. 

-Riiiing-

-Click-

'Hello ma'am, I'll reach you in ten minutes... Sorry, the rain... Yes... Ma'am... I apologize... Sorry Ma'am...'

He felt frustration build into a massive headache as he sped up. 

Wind lashed against his face, making it numb; cold seeped into his bones. 

Then it happened.

The REFLECTION of a CAR appeared in his side-view mirror as his bike skid on the slippery road and slid right into the path of an oncoming car. 

There was a loud screech, ...

WHITE LIE

He: Hey, it's been a while. How are you?

She: I'm okay. How are you?

He: Okay? Just okay? You always say that. Why can't you say you are fine for once?

She: Because I don't feel fine. Should I lie?

He: Ya dude, it's just a white lie. You always sound so depressing.

She: (Stumped) Okay...

It was not the first time she heard it said. And she was familiar with the tone he used.

It's been used by other friends and family members before.

'You're annoying'. It said.

But what struck a deep cord, were his next words.

He: Ya don't be an attention seeker. We wish you would stop that.

She was outspoken about her depression and spoke her mind because, she believed it is bett...

WOLF MOON

On the full moon night,
When the MOONLIGHT shone bright,
The young wolves-- the chosen eight,
Prepared to enagage in blood fight,
To receive the true alpha right.

The fire bowl was set to ignite,
And the shaman started the rite,
As the tribe elder clad in white,
Made his SPEECH full of skite,
Before the ceremonial site.

Once the ritual was over, the fight
Among the chosen-- the eight,
Began without any doubt or fright,
Where they showed their might,
In the battlefield for a fortnight.

A winner emerged though not quite,
Who the shaman predicted, so in spite
Of the obvious victor, he tried to incite,
The elder to denounce Lucrus and rewrite,
The victor as Miagos the...

KALEIDOSCOPE OF MEMORIES

Chasing butterflies under the warm sun;
Feeling the cool breeze rush over as I run;
Those innocent days filled with joy and fun;
Will they ever come back again?

Brownie the brown dog was my best friend;
We went on adventures that remain unsung;
Far into the heart of the woods were no one,
Would ask us to hush and quiet down.

Whether it was sunny, rainy, windy or gloomy,
The climate couldn't possibly control me;
I thrived everyday under the wide skies,
Dreaming a billion dreams with gleaming eyes.

Too many hands sailed into my lunch box;
Tales spun so crazy they could reach Mars;
Creative games consuming every break;
This was how school life was give or take.

Curio

Lia was packing the last of her things as she prepared to move to the city. The small town she grew up in was filled with memories up to the brim. It felt suffocating.

As she emptied out the last drawer, she found a curious box with a tag that said 'To Lia'. A bit puzzled she opened the box to find a quilt, an ink bottle and scraps of parchment, along with a note.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Here lies the Magic Quilt, one of Grenada - The Great Witch's invention.

To awaken him,
* Feed him ink with 3 drops of blood.
* Write your wish on a piece of parchment
* And chant the spell - 'Contingat' 3 times.

He can grant you but one wish. Choose wisely."

MID-NIGHT  NOTE

On the pages of a note,
I lost in the pile,
Is a suicide note,
I wrote while,
No one bothered to note,
I wore a happy veil.

ROUTINE

Long after the sun sets,
While everyone else rests,
I arrive at home in distress,
Drained from everyday stress.

My hair is a mess,
My eyes look lifeless,
My bones cry as I undress,
Worsening my weariness.

I eat my food in loneliness,
Take my meds feeling hopeless,
Get into bed staying sleepless,
Perhaps cause I fear the nightmares.

I spend hours feeling restless,
Battling depression, being anxious;
Waiting for dawn's luminous,
To let me rest by killing the darkness.

More valuable than rubies is forgiveness.
