#AtoZChallenge- Bondage

My first glimpse of you was more than a decade ago.

The moment I saw you, I was amazed at your intriguing personality. Instantly found you fascinating and my admiration for you kept intensifying.

 I considered myself lucky that I got an opportunity to know you. I was elated! You were my new found love.

As years passed, I watched you evolve, take different forms. Your growth had no limits. You were mesmerizing!

You were my window to the world. You made me forget about boredom. I was never this entertained! I loved you!

Your capabilities never ceased to amuse me. You were the answer to all my questions. My world revolved around you. You made my life easy!

My intimacy with you knew no bounds. I sacrificed my cardinal relationships for spending time with you. I was addicted!

I grew so fond, I could not stay away from you! Your presence made me feel alive. You made me feel connected.

Years flew by with your company by my side. My love for you could not diminish. The more I was with you, the more I yearned for you. You were my weakness!

My day started and ended with you. Everyday I was engrossed in you. I was afraid if I could accomplish anything apart from you.

Thus I reached a dangerous phase, a version of myself I never wished to see. My addiction to you grew beyond limits. I was handicapped without you!

I became ignorant of myself. I suddenly recalled my goals. I felt like a failure chasing unwanted dreams.

My craving for you weakened my focus. I couldn’t work. I couldn’t achieve. I was unhappy.

You were painfully disturbing. My productivity was degrading. Your distraction led to destruction. You owned me. You paved way for slavery!

I realized you changed me. You drugged me, you enslaved me. You ruined my way of life. I felt powerless. I was helpless.

I wanted my life back, I wanted to let go. I craved my lost self. I wanted a break. I wanted to be free.

Then did I decide to end this bondage once for all. An end to this life of slavery. An end to  my misery.

I tried hard to overcome my addiction. Made an effort to change myself. Formulated plans to escape from this bondage. But all in vain.

Years of damage was hard to fix. I still am addicted to your fatal piece of garbage, trapped in bondage forever. Let me go, let me free!

I hate you- You hazardous Smartphone!!!

  1. Too good!! In the beginning i felt like you were talking about a person… first it felt like a long lost love. Then over the course of the write-up it felt like you were referring to a child. Then again it felt like a lost love. And the last line… Killer!! Loved your post!!

  2. I see you have engaged the challenge and are once again providing engaging posts. This is no exception and, while not quite 50 Shades, does indeed capture the essence of tech that demands attention, gripping minds in chains that tug the mind into some prison that steeps in anxiety if a log on is missed. Very good indeed my friend and, my apologies for other matters that have left my year starting too slow to be able to join you…I have no excuses apart from poor time management!

    1. Gary! So good to see you here! So very true about the chaos in the mind, we are all chained to technology. Though I started giving this challenge another shot, I’m not sure if I’ll last. I made up mind that it’s okay if I can’t lol. I actually stopped by your blog if you were participating. I totally understand for you not taking part this year my friend. Give priority to the needed ones. Thank you so much for your thoughts. Hope all is well at your end 😊😊

      1. I had a notification you were participating so had to pop by. Really frustrated at my end though. I wanted to do this, but I’ve a pile of things related to my own blog and writing that is simply miles behind. Bit demoralising really, so I had to step back and start from the beginning of the list and work through. As you say priorities. Hopefully I’ll be back up and running again soon. But good luck with this one and, it’s not failure if you find you don’t make the end. Taking part is the achievement…. I’ll be back every so often to comment too 😊

      2. Thank you so much Gary!! Yes, I completely understand and it gets really frustrating when things don’t go as planned. But it’s okay. I just wish all this doesn’t demoralize you and I’m pretty sure you’ll get back on track soon!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. I read the title and I reread the title. Then I said, okay, let’s see.
    Wonderful presentation and the suspense thing was managed well, although I did decipher after 5-6 lines that you were talking about smartphones.
    Topical post this. All of us have become quite addicted to our phones. Time for a rehab? πŸ˜€
    Keep writing!

    1. Thank you!! Why’d you have to re read the title? Did it give away something else? This was kind of an experiment for me, I actually wanted to give off clues of it, without actually revealing it. You are sure smart enough to make out soon πŸ˜ƒ And definitely we all need to get to rehab. I’m afraid that will become the way of the world soon.

      1. I thought Aura writing on Bondage??? I reread to confirm. I thought, well, let’s see where she is leading us.
        Experimenting is good, you know that, don’t you? Like holding back enough clues to make people’s minds run away in all directions. Me smart? 😝😝

        Maybe you could do your ‘R’ post with a story about a rehab centre in 2025. What say?

      2. Hehe thank you! Yes, earlier I used to skeptical in trying new ways here, but I realized it’s okay to. Well, Rehab 2025 sounds very interesting, I’ll definitely have this in mind for ‘R’. Will follow up with you if I need more ideas. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
