Writing to stay alive …

I write on things I do not know about
or know but can’t get to them
or can get there but with lesser perfection
or it may be perfect
but I can’t live with such perfection
so I make them
all over again
to know more about them
to get to their core
to make their beauty bearable
so that I can live there
or keep them forever as raw materials
to build my no-so-perfect but beautiful world
whenever this one ejects me out
