Impossible to avoid
deeds brimming with needs. Needs
spilling, staining your days, true
only for dream-chasing demigods
who know what passion means and claim
that it needs to be followed - measured
in ticks on bucket lists picked
Bores like me stick
to a more conventional meaning
of needful - PPTs and Excel sheets;
bear the weight of suspicion
in matters of heart. Routine repeats
itself and we painfully endure.
Didn’t Ghalib say more pain’s pain’s only cure?
