This piece had been stewing in my drafts for ages... finally decided to put it up...
_________________________________________
Hope...
_________________________________________
Hope, my love, is a fickle friend. It wallops you out of thin air, sprouts where droughts reign and kills where life thrived just moments ago.

Hope, just when you thought you were above the mundane vulnerabilities of mere mortals, ignites a spark near some napalm and an all consuming wanting erupts for that pretty girl to just turn around and reciprocate that silly smile you smile just for her, jolting you to the mortal human arena again!

Hope, when everything is going hunky dory, and you're holding her hand, the gentle fragrance of her breath caressing your soul, tells you that at that moment you're invincible, nothing can go wrong, and your slice of paradise is right here, in her arms, in her smile, in her heart!

Hope, just when the titanic was declared unsinkable, chucks an iceberg your way, and turns to embers and ashes your paradise, turns to the seventh circle of hell, the heart where a garden once bloomed.

Hope, you fickle friend, hope, you fatal diseaseā€¦

Of bubbles, backspaces, and a fucked up playlist... ___________________________________________
Bubbles are pretty in a cruel kinda way. They show you colours you never imagined existed, seduce you in the most unassuming manner, and just when everything starts looking better, they burst, leaving a mere void behind.

Backspaces mean a lot, words unsaid, or rather unsentā€¦ feelings, emotions woven into words, slipping on a cloak of tangibleness, and then being erasedā€¦ POOF! with just one key, into nothingness!

Backspaces mean nothing, a void, null entities, the emptiness a reminder that probably 60ml golden liquid courage (preferably on the rocks) was needed to hit the send button rather than the backspace button! Backspaces, like bubbles, are beautiful, seductive, in a cruel kinda way. It allows one to live a lie, albeit for a while, if only as novocaine to dull the throbbing angst.

Bubbles and backspaces play their role, deliver what they were created for, and leave nothing behind, if a void could be considered a nonentity. But the trouble begins when some whisky is no longer necessary for Kodaline, Sam Smith or John Mayer to start making sense.

The shattering of a heart is still survivable, but how to survive a fucked up playlist, when every word still reminds me of you?
