Historical past

As he allowed himself to be wrapped by his personal doings and un-doings, he got here head to head with historical past. A roughly faceless face consisting of total entireties that encompass not solely ashes of previous demons but additionally of previous lovers.

The edited scene

There was as soon as a half full bottle of whiskey, mendacity beside it was a pen.

Subsequent to them was an empty pocket book. The window allowed the daylight of that busy night outdoors to enter the room.

No sound was there, that’s if you weren’t to rigorously pay attention.

There was a buzzing sound, delicate in its presence, imminent in its potential to arouse.

On a nook was a shadow simmering in mild in an ideal coexistence.

On the wall, a mirror, round, all permitting, strictly encompassing.

It does not create the unknown nor does it power it to indicate up, it does nonetheless carry mild to it, and light-weight illuminates.

The query mark is an motion turned to ink, a critical chance in impossibility, the final of breath in an in-breath, a dying of noise and amok amid the top of sentence.

Generally, I hearken to folks’s voices, making an attempt to decipher the punctuation mark that finest explains them. That is the dialog that happens -cortically- or perhaps heartedly:
