No One Ventures

Post by capt_buzzard »

No rooms could have looked cheerful on a day

like this. The weather is as gloomy as

my soul, gloomy enough that I wonder why I came into this world and why I

have taken such much trouble to stay in it.

I am alone, of course...human beingss

are always alone whatever they choose

to think or do. Born alone...die alone.

The mind is always singular,never plural,

no matter how we may mislead

ourselves with talk of social animals.

But this dreary room pleases me the same

way the weather does. No one ventures to

bother me on dreary days in dreary rooms.
