Don’t take what doesn’t belongs to you!

You want something that doesn’t belong to you
Something which is personal to me
As personal as my name or my identity
You can move in my shadows
You can sneak into my periphery
Like an imposter you pretend
To be another version of myself


This falsehood will be exposed
When you will be unable to provide
Any real or authentic thoughts
Anything with substance real
All you have in your hand
Is a ghost of reality

Let go…….

Turn back to your dark world
Where you dream dreams of victory
By robbing others of their reality
Where you will forever remain
Prisoner to your lack of imagination

Written for;


The theme this week is ;A Stolen Identity

Eugi’s weekly prompt; Shadows




Enchanted for a price


Eager to please
Do whatever is asked
A servant for life

If you love me sincerely, unequivocally
I’d be all that to you, forever
Beholden to you, spirit to spirit

But one wrong word
A misstep or miss-deed
Can break the spell that binds me to you

Making me
Disenchanted, disillusioned
Questioning your every move

Please stay true

Your Weekly Prompt – Enchanted – Nov. 11, 2021



Halloween for me

Halloween is celebrated on the last weekend of October. But mostly in western culture. Till a few years back we, living in Pakistan had a very faint idea of what this was all about.

Then the influence of the west, movies, etc prompted our younger generation to start celebrating Halloween. Mostly the affluent class of people try to emulate the west. We can find costumes and special candy packs for Halloween. But only the kids in schools actively participate, while the indulgent parents facilitate them.

I personally have no inclination to frighten myself silly by reading scary stories or watching Halloween-based movies. It’s an alien culture for us and I don’t get the logic behind it at all. But then I guess the other side of the picture is true too. We do a lot of things here in an eastern culture that don’t make sense to others, as well.

No creepy ghosts to spoil my night
No spooky stories to make my hair stand
I spend my Halloween safely tucked in my bed
Dreaming peaceful dreams and ignoring the shrieks outside


Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Halloween – October 28, 2021

Thursday Inspiration by Jim; Anything to do with Halloween




What haunts at night

Stray thoughts like stringless kites

Haunt my dreamless nights like ghosts

I close my eyes, willing my brain to sleep

Instead it chooses to torture me with thoughts

Thoughts that are best left alone for they only bring regrets

Lamentation, for all that I did wrong keeps me awake

Oh! Begone you who torment me endlessly

For it’s too late to fix what has already happened

Let me rest my weary soul and maybe tomorrow will be a better day

Your Weekly Prompt – Haunting – October 21, 2021

“The moon was so beautiful that the ocean held up a mirror.” —Unknown

Your Weekly Prompt – Afterglow – October 14, 2021


Very quietly the sun crept away into the west

Leaving the sky lit in a purple afterglow

It is so hard to decide what is more beautiful

The departure of the fiery sun in a haze of dusk

Or the luminous moon rising in all its majestic grace




Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Autumn

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.” – John Muir

Your Weekly Prompt – Autumn – October 7, 2021


The advent of autumn brings double joy

The heat leaves us for another year

And the color show of nature that beguiles our hearts

Change of season is always welcome

For in change lies life and stagnation is death

I wander in the wilderness to savor

The beautiful colors of fall




Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Peace

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” – Henry David Thoreau

Your Weekly Prompt – Peace – September 30, 2


We pay homage to the dove of peace

We weave accolades of praise and courage

Yet the real peace is as elusive as ever

Only lip service and hollow words are offered

It seems we lack the will to bring about real peace

World is still at loggerheads with itself everywhere

People are against people, even their own kind

When will it get through our thick heads that

There cannot be peace within if there’s no peace around us




Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Connector

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

The world is big and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark” – John Muir

Your Weekly Prompt – Connector – September 23, 2021


We need more people who are amenable to understanding

Willing to open their hearts and minds to new ideas

Letting in the light from the diverse rainbow into their lives

We need more connectors to heal the chasm that divides us




Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Bouquet

Your Weekly Prompt – Bouquet – September 16, 2021


Life is made up of many different colored emotions

A bouquet of funny and sad moments

Smiles and tears both in abundance

Trials and triumphs getting equal share

Don’t expect just a bunch of beautiful roses

Remember that there are thorns hidden there as well




Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Sustain

“There must be a better way to make the things we want, a way that doesn’t spoil the sky, or the rain or the land” By Paul McCartney

Your Weekly Prompt – Sustain – September 9, 2021


What sustains me through my day to day life?

Everyday, there are ups and downs in my life

Like everyone else I have the highs and lows

I have found something solid to hang on to

When I am going through a rough patch or even

When things look bright and maybe too good to be true

My faith is my anchor that stays my ship in storms

And lets me enjoy the calm water without worry

It is my rock and my shelter

It is what makes me………
