    At first I thought the title was long for the poem, but then I get it. It completes the poem!! The poem is so sad, and it leaves a lingering feeling, I think it’s because of the repetition at the end.
    Love this, well done Shruti :)

      Tbh at first I too thought the title was long, but it felt just right for the poem. You're right, it completes the poem. Thank you for reading!

    ‘I hear city ghosts crying their lungs out
    while clawing at their chests for something other than air.’
    My favorite line. I find myself grasping for something anything real anything I can hold. Thanks for sharing.
