A Pinch of Pine

So December is upon us…

Are you thinking of resolutions already? Or are you rushing to fulfil some forgotten dreams?

I? I am of a queer mood this month. I want to take leave of the routine and wander off to some place unknown. I wish to dig my nose in dried out roses, feel its pricking on my cheeks and know what life feels like.

I want to stare into voids that fill hearts when someone dear has left for another or another world. I want to feel the pangs of first love and the adrenaline rush the first kiss brings. I want a little of this and that, and then nothing at all.

Is it a weird nothingness that envelops me or heightened poignancy that shreds me?

Am I too conscious or too lost?

How am I to know?

  1. I like your mood, it is those little pleasures that really inspire and make life better. We should all get involved in such things, appreciate life and people and be happy. Also bring a book is good advice!


  2. Resolutions are friends who visit to you in their annual breaks when you’re drunk at a party and bid their farewells by the 10th of each January. I’ve realized. What truly struck me about this piece is the want of staring into the void in the wake of a loss. Why do you wish so?


    1. That’s a nice way to look at it. I quite like it. That wish is born from a fraction of curiosity that makes me want to feel what one truly feels as there are many different ways a person/s may feel in a given said situation. Do I make sense, Rohan?
