An effortless Artistry

She dreamt of
That fairy-tale, again
And thought,
When she will fall in love,
Thousand of trumpets will blow,
And she will-
Let the entire world know,
About her love…
That she gifted her heart-
To the prince-
Who was, once, a frog!
To the prince-
Who was an ugly-beast!
To the prince-
Who was trapped-in-a mug!
That her tears-
Fell on him
That her touch-
Healed him…
And he turn-out to be
A handsome-prince!

She wished, again-
If she was a princess,
Trammeled in Witchcraft!
 And her hero-
Rustled on the sky
Like a thunder-bolt
And broke the mirror-
Witch, hence, dead!
Sets her free-
Lived happily ever after!
A happy-ending
Protagonist’s triumph over villains!
She knew-
It was just a thought-
An effortless artistry!
She got up
And went for stroll…
She saw a frog-
Leaping and croaking in
A puddle…
Smiled, she
And moved further…

I ate-
‘Cause I expect
It-to kill my hunger
And now, you say
“Buddy, Don’t expect!”

I express-
This amusement, if you say-
You don’t expect,
A night after this day?

I expect-
And I know,
Expectation hurts 
To them who expect, though
Still I expect-
the sprinkles from this wet bough,

If my expectations-
encircles me, 
Oh my folk…
I am the happiest one-
To expect- 
Nothing from your world

Even you expected
That your expectation-
Will hurt you!
And it did,
Should I shout at you, now
And say-
“You-extremely expected this, right?”
