April was too lonely a month to spend alone. In April, everyone around me looked happy. People would throw their coats off and enjoy each other’s company in the sunshine—talking, playing catch, holding hands. But I was always by myself.

you said okay


it all started with closed eyes 
and a feeling in my gut telling me 
i need to keep them shut the whole time 
because if they opened even for a second and i saw your lips 
they’d suck me in like black holes when they bend light 
and it was then i realized you were not my world 
you were my universe

The bonds between ourselves and another person exists only in our minds. Memory as it grows fainter loosens them, and notwithstanding the illusion by which we want to be duped and which, out of love, friendship, politeness, deference, duty, we dupe other people, we exist alone. Man is the creature who cannot escape from himself, who knows other people only in himself, and when he asserts the contrary, he is lying.
