It feels like one of those nights
“22 is basically the only age you can use as leverage.
Meaning that because it’s the exact age between life-as-you-know-it and what will later be known as ‘real life’ (that’s scientifically proven, of course),
people expect you to make some mistakes.
Mistakes like overcooking a pot-roast or dating someone who may not be right for you. And that’s okay, because heck, you’re just 22.”
– Shanelle Kaul
We’re happy free confused and lonely at the same time
It’s miserable and magical
Memories aren’t created to be tossed aside or fed to the wind.
Most unfortunately whoever created Man didn’t engineer our brains to work as per a shredder does –
feed it in, tear it apart,
then proceed to expel the remnants.
Letting go takes tremendous practice –
a dab of ignorance, a handful of shrugs,
closed eyes, uncountable sighs
and a whole lot of pretense.
Until it doesn’t hurt to think of it anymore.
Till then, perhaps I’ll simply look away.
HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR, lovelies.
