Abstract


The Narrower Side

The Narrower Side

1 min 195 1 min 195

I wish all of it was true

I wish we were that good

Keeping everything together

When time seemed like a tether

Chain by chain suffocating us

Together or apart,

It didn't matter at all.


I wished to survive the deep ends

When I dived in you head on

Where I swam for days

And you refused to take notice

I knew years would go by

Reaching the shore...

But you didn't have any,

Couldn't have asked for more...


I wished for a journey

Heavenly as the first frost

Your Damn cold demeanor taught me

Be careful what you wish for...

You gave me what you got

A matchstick and a piece of log

To keep me warm amidst your stone coldness

You still managed to make a home.


With all the sufferings and pain

And post-trauma coming to life

I realized I am my only hero

Stuck in qualms of losing control

To a sidekick.

So Mr. who sucked me up in the depths

Thank you for letting me know

Having a sip of you was a blessing in disguise

And what an underrated bliss is the narrower side.
