A Problem to Every Solution

‘Solution’ when it means; to solveNeeds to go obsolete.Wasn’t language meant to beA means to communicate,To explain and articulate,Whatever it is that we feel? We kept on inventingWords over wordsIn the pursuit of sayingWhat this aching heart feltAnd what the senses sensed,Or the thoughts so clear,You could see right through themOr the hazy dream now…

Betrayal of the Betrayed

Some days, the life stands at a still. The sun slowly melts into the coldness of night. One scene shifts into another and nothing happens. You were melancholic at point A and you stay that at point B. You just keep looking at the time changing --- indifferent to its passage. It can start moving…

A Price to Pay

Note: SPOILER ALERT for The Stranger, Slaughterhouse-Five, Rumplestiltskin and The Bell Jar You see a flawed system for so long you become comfortable with it. You accept the life you are given.
