“Passing Amusement” – Nayana Nair

I told myself
I just needed some answers
to solve this life.
So that I can untangle my feelings from this world,
from the shadows of people
I am maintaining by my wavering light.
But when nothing got solved
and the problems became too familiar
to be thrown away from my life.
I told myself I was searching
for an explanation.
Just a statement
that helped me make peace with what I got in life.
That if I could have those reasons,
then I believed my pain would dull.
But it didn’t and it won’t.
Now when I look at the world
with a passing amusement at my sadness,
I know my searching is the only thing
keeping me from severing my ties
from this world I so badly want to leave.

  1. I told myself I was searching
    for an explanation.
    Just a statement
    that helped me make peace with what I got in life. – I don’t doubt everyone can relate to that

    And great writing again, sad ending ๐Ÿ˜ข

  2. Life is the biggest and the most complex puzzles of all. You wouldn’t find many answers even when you lay lifeless on the pyre.

    1. True, it is difficult to find all answers not only because of the magnitude of the task that it is considering only complexity of life. But also because I believe there is no absolute answers.
