{343} – Exhibition in Vanity – Rahul Gaur (Smoke Words Every Day)

I am in the making
of my own digital cage
I confess all the numbness
that comes with not
listening to yourself
Just to seek validation from you
that in itself comes from
a similar point of view
Creating a distorted
made up world full of
unicorns of positivity hiding
demons of loneliness

Chasing quiet but I am chased
in the economy of distraction
An anonymous entity wanting attention
when we’re just a code in the age of information
We’re fools blaming technology for our sins
when we are unable to find a meaning
in all that we do
I’m a fool trying to articulate
that gnawing feeling of dread
that I will simply forget
with a notification or two

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
