some seem stuck


After all the pain
we inflicted in ourselves
though some are assumed
we are still both passengers
in the idea of us.

P.S. I had a hard time with the last line of this tanka poem so I wanna share some alternate versions (where I get the title) you might like:

seemingly stuck here on Earth.
who seem stuck with each other.

Read it again and tell me what you like more!

  1. The last line in the tanka right now was actually the last one I thought of and it was like a eureka moment lol. And you’re right, only now did I notice that the title actually gives meaning into the poem without giving away too much, which could be the case had I used one of the alternate versions. Thank you!


Got something in mind?
