yellow paint
by Ekta Somera

the colour of paint
van gogh ate
to make him happy
such is the irony
we romanticize daily
when we love
all that destroy us

for the day will come
when the oblivion
consumes us
and all that is
will become all that was

so to merely embrace
all that brings us closer
to our inevitable demise
may be an essential
part of life
