The Day of A Voracious Reader

She slumped

On an interesting word of thoughts

On which she stumbled upon

In an amusing paragraph

Since then,

She had been with this chapter,

Skipped her coffee

And the practice for the zumba dance


It took her about 12 minutes and 5 repetitions

To deeply understand those seven lines

Meanwhile, her cat

Who was in Shayasan yoga pose,

Moved her tow for exactly two times


Clearly, this mindful distraction technique didn’t work

The time went past her lunch hour.

She was busy sobbing with Tina

When she was left alone by her cold-hearted brother


The money plant at the window

Happily felt the rainy hour.

But she, however, wasn’t thirsty enough to have water.

The day went by and bid goodbye to the sun,

While she was gradually

Becoming into a page-turner.


Exactly 11:50 in the night,

Tina, scarily, crawled over the body of her lover.

But someone grabbed her neck into his fist.

The girl somehow escaped to the door

Where she saw her brother.

Pointing a gun at her

As soon as the bullet left that gun slinger

Tina knew that her living days are over.

She pushed herself back,

The bullet swiftly pierced through

The chest of the murderer.

Tina immediately hugged her brother

And also apologizing for her mistake.

She took a moment to say ‘Thanks’ to her reader.

The undeniably fulfilled Tina,

Now, looked up at room and her cat

Like a child waiting for someone

To pat her back

For finishing another Novel!

This is the eighth poem in the series of NaPoWriMo 2018 challenge. Another fizzy and experimental one but not with the vocabulary.

The song of the day is a song, Evensong from The Innocence Mission. Enjoy it.

Please read this poem without a blink and a thought. If you are one among the avid readers and furious about the wrong representation please drop your thoughts in the comment section.
