Heart Prints

A stack of old books came into her way while dusting their room. It was his. While shuffling through the books, she came across a book wrapped completely, as if he was afraid that the words will fly out if kept unbound. 

Out of curiosity she ripped opened it to reveal a diary, showing snippets of writings in bold messy letters.

Today I saw a woman, 

With a mind that leaves butterflies in your soul. 

                    You just have to feel her presence once to remember her forever.    

She turned to next page

Today I saw her again, and she smiled at me.

The intoxicating, whiskey sipping, skinny dipping smile.

Then next...

I feel as if she had magnets in her bones, for the iron in my blood. 

The strength with which she pulls me towards her,

 Just with her eyes is unbelievable.

Then to another....

Even before she looked at me, 

I had begun our forever, 

Though she didn’t have any idea about that.

And ….

I want to fly

I want to live wild

To explore the unknowns

To walk the strange roads

She said ….

But she didn’t ask me to accompany her.

Is this an abrupt end to my forever?

Were the last lines …

After reading through all his writing she felt a pang of jealousy inside her, but yet she couldn’t restrict herself from smiling, to know that underneath the stranger she married, there is a man who has sailed through love and had strong heart prints in him. And now it’s up to her, to give rebirth to the poet in him.

Today’s Prompt – “Heart prints”

 Adding this to #MondayMusings too


  1. Yup its up to her to keep this poet alive and humming! Good one on the prompt Sheethal

  2. I hope she does keep the poet alive, and bring his heartprints to light! :)

  3. Lovely. Really liked these lines- as if she had the magnets in her bones for the iron in my blood. Made me think of John Donn's imagery.

  4. This is beautiful, Sheetal ! Loved reading all your posts through the challenge. Let's stay connected after the challenge too!

  5. I loved this take on the prompt Sheethal. Despite seeing her husband writing about his love for another women you showed that angle where she felt happy to know a different him altogether! Loved it <3

  6. This is lovely! Hope she gives his poetry the wings to sail!
