Fragile Lives

Image Source

Blood relatives
Comparison high
Emotions buried
Ruled by a lie

Envy survives
Love remains lost
Blood turns thin
At every cost

Walls built
Relationships die
No share in joy
No shoulder to cry

One life
Each wants best
Nothing is left
For the rest

The delicate thread
Breaks apart
Intricate links
No longer in the heart

Contempt triumphs
Soul doesn't know
Fragile lives
More fragile ego

This post is written for the #BarAThon Day 3. Prompt: Fragile Lives.


  1. beautiful poem and also poignant look at our fragile lives :)

  2. That's the sad reality of our life. I dont know why most of us share such sad and empty relationships with our relatives!

  3. Minimum words, maximum depth. Wonderfully done!

  4. It is so easy to drift apart in life. So easy to not think about others. People forget breaking is much more easier than fixing. I love the last two lines, such a perfect summation of everything.

  5. Well said. Fragile egos and ruined lives.

  6. Egos and fragile lives - go hand in hand :(
