to whomever it may concern

What song do you sing for the pain that refuses to go even after the song itself becomes a loop from which there is no escaping? And then there is a piece of chocolate with an almond inside it that sticks in that particular corner of your throat? Then nothing can resolve that lump, for nobody knows whether the lump is piece of chogletty nut (like yourself) or genuine unshed tears. Then it doesn't matter for the hurt is where the heart is and the wreath is where the breath is, and the breath was where the death is.


I am helpless for I am 21 and I do not know. Nobody who is 21 knows. Even if they manage to look 16 and feel 36 by peculiar tricks of light. Is your life, like mine, an optical illusion? I want to be a bit of a kaleidoscope, and bits and pieces of colour. So exciting, but I may also be like you...colourblind...in a way. You know what I mean. But thank you.


Your beautiful heart is a delicious sundae.

PS- It's not about what you think it is, I think.

"the wreath is where the breath is" -- cigarette khachhish naki? asthma niyeo?

-- do you accept virtual hugs from strangers?

You have this way with words.

21 are you?

I'm dropping a line because i'm feeling a little unpredictable and i've been a long-time reader of yours, but mainly because, like saha, i liked the postscript.

So yes, hello.
