Day 3 – Fragile Lives

What fragile lives they were born with, they bemoaned their fate yet again.
People looked through them, and didn’t even realise how much that hurt. 
Their souls scratched by every assault, and no one cared. 
Cringing even if they heard a slightly raised sound, and sometimes shattering at it too. 
They were rubbed up the wrong way more than once and couldn’t do a thing about it, except bear it with stoic silence. 
They were used according to convenience and shut out when they were not required. Didn’t anyone realise how unfair it was. 
What fragile lives they led, bemoaned the window panes of the house, yet again.

Writing as part of Team Purple Rain for the prompt, ‘Fragile Lives’

  1. Ah this was a cute one and yes I can well imagine the poor plight of the window panes 🙂

  2. I honestly cannot remember anyone using the window panes in the first person ever before 🙂
    Well done.

  3. Hahaha! Nice twist, Mayuri!

  4. I was wondering who 'they' were! Window panes! Ah, poor things. Really, how we neglect them!

  5. Brilliant piece of creative writing! Loved it.

  6. Wow! Loved the twist at the end. I was cringing with pain as I read each line and I was happy once it ended. But you are so right. Oh! The poor window panes. 🙂

  7. Loved your take, Mayuri.

    I would not have thought about it 🙂

  8. Ha ha.. wonderful twist and good use of prompt Mayuri. Loved it ☺

  9. Very wonderfully written. You captured the pain of the panes beautifully 🙂

  10. This was highly creative connecting fragile lives with window panes. I read it twice to realise what I was reading and if I was making correct sense of it. Brilliant is the word.

  11. haha That was very cute and thankfully so!

  12. Beautiful piece of creative writing! Liked your narration on a very unusual thing "Window panes". 🙂

  13. Aw.. I feel bad for my window panes now. Such a creative take Mayuri.

  14. Ah…now that's a creative take on the prompt! Awesome.

  15. Oh the window panes… that's an interesting perspective to write… I am sure the window panes must have enough intriguing stories to tell about the things they see inside 😉

  16. Thank god, it was the window pane..you had my heart racing! beautifully written!! In our house it would have to be the car door that bemoanes thus!

  17. Ahha….that's unique……:)

  18. That was indeed creative Mayuri! Didn't see window pane coming in the end 😛


  19. You are so very good at this. I was not able to guess at all. 😀

  20. I like that line – people looked through them, and didn't even realise how much that hurt.
