Appearances Are Deceiving - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

take off your jacket and have a seat
you see, we're still standing on the infinite
and I can't bear to watch you there
tasting beauty through the tourniquet
of enlightened souls
pondering it for days and days
feeling like you've just been punk'd.

it's kinda like riding a new bike
gotten with proper marketing technique
and accurate analysis of the target demographic
it is easy to give your life for a little existence
meaning, a title
thinking that what seems like a dream
is in fact, the reality of fantasy.
strands of hair caught on your tongue
each one more developed
than Dostoevsky, with stronger verbs and adjectives.
