Humans, how do you cope with the loneliness
How do you deal with it when you realize that no one hears you? You can't even find their ears. You shout and shout, and they finally glance up and you try to sign and mouth words, but their gaze doesn't pause; they didn't see you; they were looking past you at something in the distance. What do you tell yourself to explain the darkness, the trampling feet that never slow, never veer from their path over your body, no matter how much you cry out for help, for mercy. Why do you allow your heart to keep beating? Why do you bother to take that next breath?
