Only if eyes could talk, his grilling stare would have screamed the loudest.

She moved silently towards the area pointed with so much annoyance.

Her heart skipped a beat remembering last night.

It was just one last time she devoured & ventured out!

Hours & hours of grit looks gloomy now;

Is it all gone for good, by a whiff of ONE night?

She somehow reached the zone, eyes tight shut!

One step at a time.

Looking at him; her insides churn! OH GOD save me this time….

With BATED BREATH & fingers crossed – she climbed the weighing scale,

Trainer’s eyes gawking for the digits to shine.

Digits moved up; but saved her in nick of time…

‘Gulp some water & do 50 sit-ups! No more tarts & sweet pies.’

Next shoot is with ‘healthy living’; you must look bright!

Wow, what a lovely poem. I wasn’t expecting that end. In fact, hundreds of things crossed my mind after reading first 4 lines. Alas, the end was just awesome.

Ah! This is the story of my life. There’s so much of trepidation before standing on the weighing scales. Loved the twist!

For me its the opposite. I look at the weighing scale expecting it to be on a higher side, but alas! Liked the post, Dipika.

    gleefulblogger · October 15, 2017 at 10:11 am

    Hahah.. lucky you I would say then. Me & scale has a love hate relationship. Love for fewer times than could count on fingers;)
