Flotsam

Some days, after a few drinks at an empty pub, playing music that you did not come looking for, talking to a friend, old ghosts seep into your mind.
As the beer seeps in effortlessly into the vacuum, you ponder on questions you thought you had left behind.
Questions that challenge your choices, your convictions, your status quo with life. A single moment that lasts an eternity strips you of all the congeniality you had nurtured for years.

What do you do?
Order another beer, light another cigarette, try to groove to alien songs, stifle the ghosts out of your system. But you know, they'll return..another evening...

  1. It is a challenge, but it is the best way out. Accept things as they are... convince yourself that whatever happened was the best thing that could have happened. Whatever decisions you were compelled to take were also pivotal. Sounds ridiculous?.

  2. What you are saying is absolutely correct.
    This is just about those moments..when suddenly all the rationalisations slip away temporarily.

  6. this is not about fooling someone, including oneself, it is more about choices we make...and sometimes how they return to haunt us..
