It's nothing personal…(Poem)

It’s nothing personal…

 

Yet my world made me nonplussed

where more was becoming less

constructs over a core emptiness

mirages coating our not being fussed

 

When it became more about being in the know

less about knowing actual beings

actors in this virtual show

creating a mass acceptance of seeming

 

Though maybe we never held a conversation

or lost touches we never care to regain

it all added to the cumulative conformation

confirming cons formed in unrecognisable names

 

It took some time out of line to accept it

facing lines on separation with online

for long times I too lapse into this madness

fascinating(,) the late fashion of times

 

Fixating to strangers, updating a status

or behind screens seething; plagued and vexacious

transformed and amazed us, this fix to clicks world’s so spacious!

but larger circle creations only equated to absences more vacant

 

its nothing personal

 

Complaining about ennui,

or from where the envy came

neither as friend nor enemy,

wanting to remain as just names

 

So lets not cheapen ourselves to stats

to likes, to elephant in the room acquaintance

to the ignominy of an anomaly

to test followings with patience

 

Ah! before you request, I accept

that my feelings are of the biggest hypocrites

sink to lift, in and out of drifts

Nostalgia to detachment at a fingers click

 

It’s nothing personal, we just became irrelevant

so please forgive me if, and for what, I’ve wronged

upon hibernation, native hypes grew evident

we all just seek for places to belong.
