but

what is a life

if there’s no story?

 

and what is a war

without the glory?

 

..what is love

without forever..?

 

what is it all,

if not a waste?

 

a massive waste

of painful measures.

  1. splendidly rendered, leaving yet more questions. love the particular rhythm of this piece with the sentiments (and questions) expressed. Immediately made me think of: “I have measured out my life with coffee spoons”

    1. Thank you, one can only wish to reach that level of eloquence. I’m working on it though! Thank you for sharing your thoughts, they’re always a welcome respite from my own internal criticisms. 🙂
