Hard Bound


Have you ever felt like no matter how hard you try,

You cannot understand that person?

Like you are never on the same page?

In fact, you are on the last page

Of a different book altogether,

of a hard bound copy

And you know the cover is going to slam right on you in the end


Because your book was titled “L O V E”

While theirs was titled, “ABC for beginners”

And by the time they learnt to spell emotions

Your book already had new chapters

Or was passed on to someone else

Or torn pages and recycled

Into blank white sheets waiting to be rewritten on





Planes in the air

Boats into the water


Used, reused
