 77 total views

The poem suggests the author’s despairedness and lethargic feeling towards life. His suicidal thoughts and melancholy.
The writer is depressed and weary, with nothing fruitful emerging. He’s doomed to think acrimonously.

It’s not about the ripped jean,
Nor the red tie and the blue blazers.
Rather, the need to put people in boxes,
Like we are.

Like windows of opportunities behind a closed door,
In this story building, lingering hope is the first flaw,
And eversince blueticks started leaving blueprints,
Emotion has been throwing tantrums like slings.
