Deceptively Beautiful!

"Arushi Ahuja"
My small coin collection!!

Dismissed in Love and Hatred too,
She lay in disregard of her heavy heart,
Thinking maybe she could con him too,
And have a opulent but fresh start!

She knew not sorrow bounds itself,
To swindle, larceny, lust and theft!

  1. sorrow can def lead us down a path...
    and especially when wronged, our need for justice
    can bring us to places just as bad
    as how we were hurt....emotions
    cloud our judgement.

  4. This sounds like a relationship one would not desire to have with the conning and larceny and theft.

  5. You have portrayed a very plotting mind quite effectively! It seems it is better not to be around once she puts her plan into action.

  7. Revenge is a dish best served cold; one must let the emotions ebb before the stratagem can be properly planned. Very nice take on the prompt; got my juices flowing.

  8. Unique! What sharp humour catching some of the foibles of those wronged! Some really delicious lines there ..actually all, 'An opulent fresh start was delightful' - and set the tone!

  12. I am sorry, Arushi Ahuja, but i don't get it. I see a heart broken woman wanting revenge, but your message is impossible to grasp. The two last lines of your poem says nothing.
