Hide n Seek

You realize the pain runs deeper when a day of retail therapy doesn't so much as elicit a smile. Does life exist in a rain forest after an acid rain? Do the trees forget the pinching burn and sprout leaves? Does earth forgive the scathing kisses of the skies? Does hope linger in the tiny blade of grass wanting to break free?

I don't know. I never know. All I have at any given point in time are questions. Questions that should never, ever be answered, much less truthfully. The Truth doesn't really lighten the burden. It adds more muck and fills the whole damn place, till you stifle in the very truth you dared to utter.

That's why I've decided to remain a liar. A victim of desire. The desire to walk through life effortlessly and painlessly. With a smile on my lips. But don't look into my eyes. The Truth that escaped sunlight, could be hiding there.

Under shadows.
