Life spent in recklessly chasing the unachievable.

Moments wasted in creating memories that are now waiting to be erased.

Simplicities overlooked in the name of delving deep into knowledge.

Effulgence overtook the shimmer of far away stars.

A tryst with pain, a promise with melancholy.

A bond with upheaval and goodness left behind for the sake of serendipity.

A tumultus journey, this life, a sad little infinity.

But we all survive every single day, despite our fears of death and decay.
