Image prompt @ The Mag

Elegant attire
Ethnic jewelries
Golden footwear
Gorgeous accessories
Vibrant cosmetics

Palace like home
Lustrous life
Comfortable amenities

All these glamour
Appeals her strongly
But alas! She is just a housekeeper

 Her craving heart
Wants to have these for once
Just once
Her dreamy eyes
Want to decorate her withered life once
Just once
Her fluttering desire
Wants to fall in love with life for once
Just once

Her desires echo
Her dreams reflects
In the grand yet lonely house

Hope emerges
Maybe some day
A prince charming
Will hold her hands
And her life
May glitter
Just like Cinderella

The longing comes across loud and clear in this one!

Rahul said...

You could have falsely thanked me as well.I wouldn't mind.;-) Btw,this poem reminds me too much of the KJo K3G types movies.Sprawling bungalows,spacious areas for fantasizing,daydreaming and what not..riches to drape oneself in,cash to burn,cinderella slippers to slip one's dainty feet into..and all that blah!!:-) What?You looking for a SRK kinda chappie to sweep you off your Cinderella slippers-clad feet???:-P

@ Cathy: Thanks!:)

@ Rahul: :) K3G (Or SRK) was nowhere in my mind while writing this. It came just as a response to some prompts (Images). Thanks:)

@ Enigmatic Soul: Thank you!:)

Fairy tales can come true...

Nicely done. So sad when we crave those things we think will make us happy and don't realize that true happiness comes from within.

Tarang Sinha said...

@ Tess Kincaid: They can...maybe sometimes. Thanks!:)

@ anitamombanita: Yes, you're right. Glad you liked it. Thank you!:)
