actions as a defeatist

oft unproved

makes one more curious

with each passing day

is the worry worth it?

once faithful and true

only to be suddenly


a pathetic drama with

only one performer.

yet, never being a


indeed, taxing one’s


yes, regrets enter the

picture but again,

is the worry worth it?

no, and nor is the need

to keep this whole thing

under wraps as our

goodbyes need no encore

but a little applause will do



Reena’s Exploration Challenge – week 58

Pick minimum two keywords – preferably which is not from your post, and weave a story/poem around it. The onus of identifying your keyword is also on you :). It is not necessary that the keywords appear in your post. It is only a theme, a personality, a mind-set that one works with. It will be interesting to see how these interact with each other.

Hats off to those who can take seven keywords, and create something!


  1. Whiner
  2. Patience personified
  3. Pessimist
  4. Testing Times
  5. Doer
  6. Jilted Lover
  7. Circumstantial
  8. Devoted

My Words

whiner – complainer

pessimist – defeatist

testing times – taxing

doer – performer

jilted lover – abandoned

circumstantial – unproven

devoted – faithful and true

    I like the layers in it. You mention a solo performer, but a close reading reveals more characters in the picture. What the solo performer actually does is respond to the drama around.
