I murdered the poet in me last night and buried it under all the poems I wrote for every soul I once loved . I no longer beseech happiness , or look for beauty in obvious flaws , instead , I let the harsh reality seep in my bones and fill my holes which I used to describe as artistic cracks .
All the paragraphs about red wine and coffee shops , warm kisses and freezing rains , Tibetan teacups and wind chimes , lilies and sunflowers , Polaroids and cigarettes , all of them , were supposed to make me feel beautifully sad . Instead , they kept reminding me that poems about muses are just a way of escaping the obvious and undeniable reality . Because evil is inevitable , and the artist under the skin just keeps trying to paint the world with imagination , as wild as it can .
Poets , these damned poets , us , we try to make blood and smoke look beautiful , and we try to picture the most absurd scenarios in our backyards , kitchen counters , balconies or bathroom tiles , and we somehow even succed , but just after the whiff of endorphin settles and the wave of thoughts and metaphors wash over , reality comes crashing back , just as we open the blinds and traffic noises come rushing , kids start screeching ,time just refuses to slow down and the days wreck havoc .
Painting the walls of our being with beautiful lies never help , but then , reality doesn't either . Maybe it's just better to let Mr Darcy and Heathcliff seep in our veins , and to cry with Elizabeth and Catherine as all the world dissolves around .
I regret murdering the poet in me , just the way I regret existing .
- Ruhii .
I like to contradict myself . Happy Everything to Everyone !

For this post imagine even the most ferocious animals to be friendly to you.
