Tormented eternity

Prompt  ….

Many seasons passed. New generations ruled. Vaguely he remembered the present generation when they were still being nursed by their mothers. During that time, he had possessed many from the living  – without thought and without mercy. It had been an eternity he thought.

No! Another voice with in him objected.  Eternity is something very different – it is not a vast stretch of time and space. It is a confined space, dark and gloomy – like an attic and often full of giant roaches.

A frail voice urged him to walk out of the attic.

Trifecta: Week Ninety Four ~ Mask !

Prompt ~ Mask

Once long time ago at a costume party, I told Dom that I did not believe in future as described in the concept of eternity.

He smiled and retorted, “what if eternity is something very different from how we view it – what if it is not the vast stretches of time and space; what if it is a confined space like a garret – dark gloomy and full of roaches in all corners”.

If my wife had not divorced me a few months earlier I would have shouted – Honey, Dom has just shrunk the eternity.

The lady on the next table glared at us, took off her nose mask and said “if I knew you two drunks have also been invited I would have brought along my mask of denial”.

Trifextra: Week Sixty Nine ~ Confession

Dom had a near-death experience.

Thundering boom ordered..    CONFESS!

I have been skeptical and suspected the eternity to be a small dark room full of awful creatures, sir.

Amazing, how did you know?

We all imagine the eternity to be a limitless expanse of time and space. Why? 


 

Just a perspective !

I was browsing through my old posts at Froppers and came across this one. Normally I avoid posting texts here …….. just a reluctance because  most people post very impressive and targeted matter here and not just free flowing yarns that leave much to your imagination. However I could not restrict my urge to share this one here.

……………..

We all are story tellers and we all know how to  “spin”  facts relating to our daily lives – that suit us best. If it were not so we all would be a dejected and depressed lot for if we  examine those facts in neutral bright white light – the shadows are often too long and tend to present us in a way that is often not very complimentary.

Stories that have a strong theme, a fascinating plot, a fitting structure, unforgettable characters, a well-chosen setting, and an appealing style are most liked but I believe the ones that show us a different perspective (one that goes unappreciated) are often those that leave a lasting impression.

Once long time ago I told Dua, a childhood friend, that I did not believe in future ….. as depicted in the concept of eternity.

He smiled and retorted – what if eternity is something very different from how we view it – what if it is not the vast stretches of time and space; what if it is a confined space like the attic – dark gloomy and full of roaches in all corners.

If my wife had not divorced me a few months earlier I would have shouted – Honey, Dua has just shrunk the eternity.

Ideally that should be the end but I feel compelled to tell u all that shortly after this Dua suffered from a mental break down and was confined to a padded cell. Don’t know if it was dark, gloomy and full of roaches.

Since then I assiduously avoid tempting fate and never reach out to tweak her nose.
