“Eventually something you love is going to be taken away. And then you will fall to the floor crying. And then, however much later, it is finally happening to you: you’re falling to the floor crying thinking, “I am falling to the floor crying,” but there’s an element of the ridiculous to it — you knew it would happen and, even worse, while you’re on the floor crying you look at the place where the wall meets the floor and you realize you didn’t paint it very well.” ― Richard Siken
Read this quote a long time ago, it’s one of those things that you stumble upon and you will always remember it. Not the exact lines in it, but the very real description of the moment we would have once went through. Or is it just me?
“I woke up in the morning and I didn’t want anything, didn’t do anything, couldn’t do it anyway, just lay there listening to the blood rush through me and it never made any sense, anything.” ― Richard Siken
Tell me, have you woken up one day, as you lay quietly in bed listening to life around you, and realize that life didn’t make any sense? Nothing, like it never did.
