Cheryl Wan


At one corner, someone is nodding while another lectures on,

Another corner, another whispers,

Right ahead, stifled giggles

To the left, a basketful of tissues

Belonging to someone who has just sneezed

Mouse clickings, tappings of keyboard,

Screens projecting light on every desk,

Empty soda cans,

Crumpled McDonalds' burger wrappers

Admist these daily animations,

A heart lies isolated in the blue room,

Keeps believing

Tries to keep warm,

Tries to stay beating,

Tries to keep something afloat

Craves for meaning among the meaningless
