It’s funny how the world goes
People who used to be so close
Turn into such perfect strangers.

It’s funny how the world goes
Emotions that used to be so familiar
Turn into ideas so alien.

It’s funny how the world goes
A heart that used to be so whole
Turns into such unfathomable pieces.

It’s funny how the world goes
Words that used to hold meanings so sweet
Turn into such bitter reminders.

It’s funny how the world goes
That which used to make perfect sense
Turns into such absurd apprehension.

It really is funny how the world goes
Things that used to be funny
Turn into tear-inducing stimuli.

Funny how the world can be this funny while not being funny at all. I suppose that’s why insane people laugh so much. They’ve experienced how funny the funny world really can be.

  1. Your poem is true. We forget old friends with new life and problems. The good days were when we held friendship strong and family close. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

  2. This is a nice way to look at stuff. Really like your poem.

    Thanks for checking out my blog and following me πŸ™‚

  3. Beautiful poem…

    on your end note i think insane people are the most satisfied persons on this planet, and i refer to those special people who are admitted in mental institutions, they live in there own world completely devoid from jealousy, greed, betrayal, lust, hatred, ego, revenge in their own world they remain and are happy in that limited understanding they have so in a way they are somewhat more blessed than the sane people, but that’s just my theory πŸ™‚

    1. I’m not particularly proud of this one.
      But thankyou.
      Hmm perhaps so. I am of almost the same opinion. But I think it’s ungrateful of us to say so.

  4. I read this a few weeks back and I just read this again. πŸ˜›
    I loved every bit of this!
    Those last lines and that short note in the end. wow!
