Ashes



As I danced around the fire, a flying cinder burned my toe; I bent down to tend to it.
I looked up, gasped, shocked by the throng of figures, around the fire. Evil faces, full of hate. Squinting at the burning mass, I thought I saw my face on the effigy’s.

having tough time interpreting them, and getting curious.
What inspired those words? Or were they just spontaneous,

Hey why don't you write more of it?? Would love to read more..

Such misanthropy? ;)

Never mind, happened with me, too. Two years back. Just had to blur the distinction between friendship and acquaintance, that's all! Simple! :)
