Love

written by: Paula Puolakka

 

Love: I do not comprehend.
People are walking into the rooms
without any intention of
making the meetings amicable.

Love: I do not want to pretend.
I’m sick and tired of the charades
since our souls are already hidden inside
the costumes made out of skin, flesh, and bone.

Love: I do not give a damn
if you’re 48, 59, 67, 78, or 85
as long as you are here for me,
and with me, all you feel is tranquility.

Paula Puolakka

Paula Puolakka (1982) is a Beat poet, writer, and MA (History of Science and Ideas) who has won writing contests and challenges held, for example, in the USA, Israel, and Finland. The Finnish Reserve Officers' Federation gave her an honorable mention in 2019 for her essay concerning invisible warfare, honoring the academic legacy of Mr. Theodore John Kaczynski and Mr. Ludwig Wittgenstein. Puolakka's interview concerning some of the same topics can be found through Re:fiction. The Burgundy Zine (USA) celebrated her articles concerning science, pseudoscience, Mr. Kaczynski, Mr. Wittgenstein, and education in Sept 2020 and March 2020. Puolakka has been the winner of the poetry challenge held by Poetry Potion over 30 times. Recently, the newspapers Kirkkonummen Sanomat and Kaleva have supported Puolakka’s opinions concerning the way how many journalists are using their status to soil the minds of their readers with biased ideological propaganda and how people have abandoned true knowledge and wisdom. Puolakka has also been guiding youngsters (lost in the material world.)
