Strangers At First Sight - Poem by nick joaquin

How could you possibly start from nothing?
And then end up as everything?

I never thought I’d feel this way again…
More like I pushed myself to never fall victim again
To this arresting feeling

How ironic is it,
That what I wanted to lose the most,
Is what most people long for their whole life

I don’t know what to do,
Guess I’ll just ignore everything again,
Time to shut my senses to all the assaults that the world has to offer…
After all, I’ve suppressed everything so far
What’s one more to add?
