An obsession with cryptic crosswords. Everything else falls in place.

What people want

Folks, this is post 50.

I started this blog to talk about crosswords and things that matter to me, but crosswords mostly. I seem to spend a lot of the time talking about other things though. And I haven't heard much complaint from most of you either.

This time, I won't talk at all. Read on:


And so
We went on
Being, believing
Parallel lines never meet.
The dawn became day
A poor lily folded its petals
And passed away
Its ghost haunting the pond.
We went on travelling
Towards a horizon
And reaching out.

And so
We went on dreaming,
When truth stood stark before our eyes
We said this is not the truth we seek,
This is not the light we want.

And so
We never spoke
Letting things lie
Each of us commanding
Willing things to die.

And so
We go on pretending
Making believe all the time
To everybody.

When gloaming
Deepens into dark night
We go on dreaming,
wishing upon each first star
We watch for.

Thanks, anon. But how about a lil bit more? That was cryptic, to say the least.
