A Bad Day

Image Source: Google

Today was a day of that kind
A day where nothing goes right
With every step it begins to rain
Away from me the sun shined bright

With the first step, tragedy struck
I dropped my phone breaking its screen
With shaky hands I slowly picked it up
I could feel my insides scream

Nothing improved since this start
Waiting for an auto was a nightmare
I fought and haggled with the rogues
They demanded extra above the fare

After quite a wait, I had to give in
I had to pay a fare of almost double
The auto moved with a speed of minus one
I knew this day could only mean trouble

When I got to work, my mood was foul
The events after that only added to it
Everything came crumbling down soon
Eating up my patience bit by bit

A week of work had to be redone
This had never happened to me before
My head started throbbing like crazy
The pain soon spread to my core

After three cups of green tea
I managed to hold myself up
The day was coming to an end soon
I was craving for a hot water tub

Broken phone in hand, I left work
I just prayed nothing else would go wrong
Then I saw my husband waiting for me
One look at him and I suddenly felt strong

He took me out and cheered me up
Listened to all the crap that I had to say
He smiled and listened to every word
Then onwards it was no longer a bad day

P.S: The above poem is a true story that happened to me on Thursday, 28th August. I wrote this that day, but stayed away from the laptop over the long weekend. Hence, publishing it now.

P.S2: Love can make anything better.

  16. Sometimes when we really feel low, it is the loved one, who uplifts our mood . very beautifully written.

  17. I had a sense it was based on real life incidents Soumya. However, I am glad you had the love of your love listened to you that made you feel better about yourself and/or your day! :) Kudos to love! ;) <3
