Paper Hearts
timer Published Date:29th Sep, 2020

Every inch of us is composed of paper heart, from being scared of shrinking to subtly disappearing, and nevertheless the depth of viciousness, you didn’t wanted yourself to be forgotten like the faces of young soldiers lost in the horrors of the war like the overcast clouds covering the bright blue sky, that’s why you started to acknowledge why people took pictures, wrote their names in the backseat, in graffiti, in tattoos and you stuck it all inside your head like a post-it-stamps and gradually you hated when people mispronounced your name or when they didn’t recognized you in the streets who you’d grown up with, you wanted to be so vibrant, shades of rainbows gliding across the sky in colours that spoke to your soul, yet the fear of being the unknown corroded you when other people much prettier than you flocked in your propinquity, you felt each portion of your skin engulfing in between the corridor walls and it tampered your self esteem. The same year in the college, when your grand mother died, you felt more unseen, the air was suddenly cold and the time stood utterly stagnant, there was sadness glistening in your father’s eyes when he spoke about her. The more and more you grieved her, the more invisible you started to feel about your being and you kept mourning and mourning the loss of yourself with each loss of her you felt in your atoms, you wanted to have a piece of her inside your home so you searched for the same rentless apricity your grand mother embodied in her veins and you found it inside the people who comprehended authenticity, that’s when you knew the magic lies in being understanding and being understood than in the mere visibility.
