    Awry is a word (not used so much anymore) meaning to go wrong, to go astray--If you let your 6-y.o. son run the candy store, things will surely go awry in your absence.

    (He'll invite all his friends over for taste testing from 2 to 4 while you're away; he'll eat his way through the bin of his favorite licorice,....Any manner and number of things could go wrong.)

    I think the word you are trying to find here is "awry" which means to have something go wrong or not work out as planned.

    Are you playing SCRABBLE? And the word awry means that things have gone wrong. As in, 'My plans for the evening have gone awry.' Too bad for me ay?

    The nearest word to that, is "awry" . It means being "askew" or "lopsided". In common lingo, it means something went wrong.
