Food for the Soul

cooltext1108140704My whole world had fallen apart. And here I was standing all alone and staring at it blankly… totally incapacitated by the feeling of rejection and loneliness.

Was there anything that could lift the weight of this grief which was weighing so heavily on my soul… something that could lessen the pain?

And then something happened. The cloud of loneliness suddenly lifted.

My sick and weary heart found some solace.

I don’t know whether it was the verse or the melody or was it both?

My soul basked in the warmth again.

It was when I heard that song again.


I am taking part in The Write Tribe Festival of Words 8th ā€“ 14th December 2013. The Theme for today is Music.

  1. Music definitely heals and the type of music that we hear also depends largely on our mood. For me, music is like a balm and there were times when I have cried listening to the lyrics(and I did not mean it in a bad way)

    • I know what you mean, Prasanna. Have experienced this, there are times when you get this feeling that a song was written specially for you and it resonates so well with your state of mind!

  2. When I read the first two lines, I thought it would be a sad and a morose drabble but music uplifted the mood. The title of ‘Drabble Queen’is rightly yours , dear Shilpa. keep it up.

    • Thanks Kalpana… glad you enjoyed reading this Drabble. šŸ™‚
      You are kind… I guess, there are miles to go, these are very juvenile attempts! šŸ™‚
