Pretense


The mask of pretense stings so much once your eyes are opened to actuality..


The realization is too agonizing…even though you’ve anticipated this all along…


It’s one of those times, when saying “I told you so” to yourself doesn’t give you that smugness and sense of triumph..
I’ve known this all along…..I’ve felt this all along… and that hurts even more when its proven to be true…



It’s like walking up a flight of steps in the dark, and misjudging the number of stairs…thinking that there is one more stair than there actually is…and your foot falls through air and hits the ground…It’s like a sickly moment…a dark surprise……That very moment…you readjust the way you thought of things….

Hey Pavitra...
I loooooooooooUve the new blog look!
I think it is super chic!
Soooooooo like u!

“I told you so” is so much terrible to hear from others...
And such a feeling when told to others...
Today I realized it could be equally painful when being mouthed to oneself...

So bloody true!
However pretence is something we can never be wary enough of!
It comes most viciously hidden behind the most trusted of faces!

P.S. I also admire how you create a sense of flow...like moving over a meandering river...into your thoughts to reach where you want our mind to g!
Great job done!
