Day 336: Shattered

The flawlessness of the crystalline glass, makes it the most fragile creation, delicate and smooth, Unforgiving when broken. I wonder how Cinderella floated above the expectations or did she just walk on shattered pieces, Quietly bleeding until the shards were embedded and she no longer knew love without the pain of perfection. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy

Day 333: This Isn’t Bollywood

Time to dismantle all my expectations, of all the religiously acceptable quotients, set up to determine the marriable connections, sheilding all the wanton deceptions of culturally knighted princes' delusions. Telling princess to keep making exceptions, for the hero's many miscalculations, so that life is only filled with her frustrations. © Manivillie Kanagasabapathy
