In the name of vanity, you throw all caution to the wind and happily feast on poisoned apples even if you know there's no such thing as free lunch.
The mirror is a liar with a poker face. You don't see what's coming your way because your bangs is in the line of your sight. But it doesn't bother you at all because you think you look and feel great with it. You've been told more than a dozen times that there's a danger in trusting somebody a little bit too much, but on the night it rained flattery, you were wide awake holding a pail and a bucket. Flattery is your Achilles heel. When it falls on your lap, every ounce of common sense left in your pockets flies out of the window faster than a scared Sparrow.
You say you'll just cross the bridge when you get there. But what if it's a hanging bridge and you have an awful fear of heights? What if there's no bridge? What if it's not a bridge but a zip line? What if it's a dead-end? What if it's a trap? What if it's a scam?
Too much appetite slash hunger for validation may not kill you yet it doesn't mean that you can ignore warning bells the way you ignore traffic lights. It's human nature, you say. Your life, your rules? To each his own? Well, maybe but here's the bad news. Regret is a traitor that will kiss you in the end. Enjoy the flattery but never get carried away.
amsterdam@laus_deo thank you for being my lighthouse in mirakee, Aditi. India is all over the news. How's your family?
laus_deo@amsterdam Well, my family is absolutely healthy and fine and I think the reason being my house which is situated in a lonesome place away from crowds amidst a lot of tress and natural beauty for which I am extremely grateful. And you know though other people also live here but the neighboring houses always maintain social distancing :D
How are you? I hope you are good and safe.
amsterdam@laus_deo I'm constantly thinking about you and those I've made friends with here. When I watch the news and see how it's like there, it worries me a lot.
