Catch-22

He had just started enjoying the party.
A casual glance across the table and a shiver ran down his spine.
A bead of sweat rolled down his brow.
He looked away, as the muscles in his throat worked constrictively.
And looked again, hungrily now.
He almost snatched the ‘Lady’.
Taming internal demons is surely arduous.
PS: One of the street names/slang for Cocaine is Lady!

  1. Its very difficult to fight against our addictions, isn’t it? Drug addiction must be the most difficult among them.
    Good one!
    All the best for the contest! 🙂

  2. A demonic pleasure it must be..And like Nethra said..if its difficult to get over harmless addictions like chocolate how difficult it should be to fight an intoxicating adiction like the “LADY’.
    Sad, hard-hitting & true..
    Good job Shilpa..ATB for BPL

    @ BK Chowla : 🙂

    @ Nethra : Right Nethra. A part of you wants to stop completely or never touch drugs again, while, another part is desperate to just forget about all that and get stoned.

    Thanks 🙂

    @ Vibhuti B : Yeah and may be the addicts have strong thoughts like, “I can’t stand this craving any more, I’ll go crazy if I don’t have some soon”. And with this all the rehabilitation efforts/plans goes down the drain!

    Thank you Vibhuti!
