A few short poems toying with the idea of uncomfortable solitude:


If being like you

Wasn’t a norm,

I, too, would

Get quiet

After raising

A storm.


They laugh at us,

And we laugh

It off,

And there is

Nothing less funnier

Than this.


She needs applause

To live,

And it does not matter

If she

Is the only one clapping.


He collects another smile;

The photographer in him

Has an eye for such things,

But the person in him knows

That he has not captured

Any real ones in a while.
