Guest Post: Shaily Agrawal

I am delighted to have received a guest post from Shaily, in the form of a poem.
Shaily is a committed and engaged blogger, and was recently featured as a character in my last fiction serial.

Here is her own short bio.

Author Intro:
Shaily Agrawal is an Instructional Designer, working mother and small-town woman with a skewed perspective.

This is her unedited guest post.

Poetry: The Ripple Effect

I am numb—

Serene sea.

One walks in and

Offers condolence—

A drop that sends ripples

Across me.

Then come the tidal waves

Of reality

Crashing against my being.

I try to reply

But tears rise and choke me.

I inhale to calm down.

But the stormy sea knows no bounds.

I go under—

Drowning the illusion of restraint,

Once again.

I turn to hide

Lest the world may see

What a wreck

You have made of me.

Wait until the numbness returns.

And I’ll, again, be the serene sea.

Guest Post: Shaily Agrawal

I am very pleased to introduce you to an Indian blogger, Shaily Agrawal. Here is a link to her site.
Shaily is very engaged on my blog, and I am happy to host her guest post here.

Here is what she has to tell you about herself.

‘Shaily Agrawal: I am an Instructional Designer (Content Developer in Adult Learning). I am a ‘Social Introvert’ with countless ‘friends’ but still lonely. I am an inefficient mother of a two-year old and a working house-wife. Yup! Irony!’

And here is her very short post.


He looked at the tears flowing down her blackened eyes.
He pulled her in his arms and, once again, said, “Sorry, Love! Just don’t make me angry again.”
