Be my kindred soul

Am I impossible?

Nobody can have the best of both worlds.

Except those who play hard and dirty.

But they continue to deliberate whether they have it all or not.

Don’t be stupid.

Listen carefully.

And you’ll hear the unsteady breath of the person next to you

in the burning room.


He takes me in with his broken sweet smile.

And he stays for a medium while.

Longer, I wished.

Love me, LOVE ME. At least, like me! Said the starfish.

And he leaves.

That’s when a broken clock would come in handy, I grumbled.
