Easing Out


Tickety-tock, clickety-clock

Clichés count the ways

To ease into familiarity.

Content, into comfort.

Except, one forgets, how

Familiarity leads to

The gentle ground

Of an easy contempt.

It’s perhaps the most oft narrated story.

The one of swampy marshlands

Sinking simple joys

Bleakness of dim lights of indifference

That no amount of pretence can relieve.

Are you stuck in one?

Tell me, do you want out?

Or has the darkness of that comfort

Become habit, and easing out

Is no longer worthy of your effort?

  1. ‘Familiarity breeds contempt; is over-rated
    Cozy companionship is under-stated
    The dark
    Needn’t be stark
    In soft light, harshness is dissipated!

  2. When you say comfort i think of my old slippers
    If i had to ease out i would have dumped them by the hundreds
    Now i throw them only when they become rough like the lobster’s nippers
    But if you really have a plan to ease out be kind to tip us.
