The Shatter

The Shatter reverberated around the entire hall.

My safety compromised i looked at her, eyes moist.

“What happened to you? , You have changed” she shouted.

If only she knew how much she had hurt me.

I looked down , at the thousand pieces of broken emotions.

    • Wow! that was awesome too!! and the line – My heart shattered into a thousand pieces as I stood unmoving, letting the words pierce my soul. LOved this! Would have been better if it was the first line πŸ˜› just saying πŸ˜€

      • Nadig—What a powerful first line….it evokes a sensory experience. Thanks. And, J.M., I agree with Nadiq…I read yours and also loved the line, “letting the words pierce my soul.”

      • We’re going to create this Mutual admiration company.. πŸ™‚ I like how you craft a scene ! πŸ™‚ Wonderful! πŸ™‚ Someone told me the other day :Ha! Science lovers love words too?!!! πŸ˜€

      • Hahaa Yes! MUtual admiration Company it is then πŸ˜› i like the way you use words to make others feel what you have felt πŸ™‚ Very few ppl have got that πŸ™‚ Lets play πŸ˜› Someone told me the other day πŸ˜€ , Ha! Writers love science too? πŸ˜€

      • Isn’t science some logic that couple of observers prove and express in good words ? , πŸ˜€ I said.. Then , of corse I sighed and said , Science is my first love and words are my way to combine it with something unseen and unsaid! :D:D

      • Isn’t words some magic that couple of people express and express again in a different way to prove their love for words? πŸ˜€ i said..then, i wanted to sign and say , Words are my first love and science is my way of combining it with the unknown and unspoken!! πŸ˜€

      • Good , then. πŸ™‚ Words win even when science fades ; maybe that’s why on every old cave-wall , stone , cavemen marked their feelings! But , I say, again, science exists inside everything , even in void , in muted hearts that function till the end . Science is alive beneath many unspoken things that words avoid ; in every formula , every sign , every calculation of emotions , change and exchange , there lies science! πŸ˜€

      • Good, then πŸ˜€ Science win even when words fades; maybe that’s why the cavemen knew they had to rub stone against stone to produce a kind of marking! But, i say, again, words exist in everything , even in the word “everything” and in muted brains that can’t function till the end. Words are alive beneath every spoken things science avoid; in every feeling, every gesture, every emotion that can’t be calculated, in change and stillness, there lies words! πŸ˜€
