Sharp words reeking of

Hate punctuate my heart:

Tears flow down my face.

How To Deal With Disappointment

  1. Shrug your shoulders.
  2. Smile.
  3. Say that you were wrong for expecting too much, and that you realize it.
  4. Say that it is not such a big deal.
  5. Go to the bathroom/bedroom, whichever is nearest.
  6. Cry your heart out. SILENTLY.
  7. Wash your face, and think of something really funny that is bound to make you smile.

8. Come outside, and smile again as if nothing happened. If unconscious tears seep out, you are having dust/pollen allergy.

9. Drink a hot beverage to calm your nerves. I’d recommend tea.

10. Never expect anything again. Atleast try not to.

Deadline

Scattered sheets of paper,

Piled up on the desk in a mess,

Speeding hands working,

Agitated and restless.

The clock is ticking,

Submission is nearing.

Work is increasing,

Time is decreasing.

Quick, fast and rushed,

Thoughts click together,

But alas! It is too late,

Because the deadline is over!

Dedicated to the memory of all the poor souls who are working hard to reach their deadline. Wait, did I just say “memory”???
