Just a thought


Do you exist, or do you live?

She asks him, lazily

All these million people

those look so happy, so satisfied…

Are they happy? Are they satisfied?

And what about you?

She asks him, watching him carefully,

Do you exist, or do you live?

He likes the way she makes him feel

Out of his comfort zone, he is silly & crass

But then so is she.

He exists, he told her.

She knew what he meant.

Materialistic conquests, futile conversations

The art of getting to know someone

All of it, so mundane, so ordinary

Nothing excites them anymore

Everything, at best, has the positive quality

Of time being spent.

Maybe they should respect time & life more

But then, maybe time & life should respect ‘them’ more.

What about you, he asked her

Do you exist, or do you live?

I try, she replied.
