Makes sense no?

Now what about Beside? I think you missed Beside

Oh no, don’t remind about it, Beside is big trouble. Coming from the Old English be sidan t always meant: Being at the side of. But Beside let me ask you something, if you are always at the side of things: Which side are you on?

The moment you look at one side of things, Beside is at the other side. Elusive, deceiving and not very clear this Beside s

Beside is by the side of another side, who is at the same time the side of this first side that stays by it’s side

Beside is never visible because there is only one visible side of things. One shows itself while the other don’t

Don’t even try to look for clarity in Beside because it might already by your side

Juan Pablo Plazas, 2018
