“Some things aren’t a coincidence, some aren’t meant to be. (But) when pieced like a puzzle, somehow they are interconnected, strong like a rusty chain, complicated like yarn. Curiosity kills the cat, (yet I dig) digging deeper for more answers. Struggle came unconsciously, as you/I fight to untangle, jumping into fantasy in vain. Escape through solving – the only way out.”
