DAY 41

violent red door

Random musings from the random mind of Ziazan today: sometimes I feel like the Kathy Bates character in Misery. You know the mad lady who captures the writer man and keeps him because she loves him and (SPOILER ALERT) breaks his legs with a massive hammer? Yeah, not that bit. I mean the bit where she gets really angry (reader, she gets FURIOUS) about people not getting what’s right in front of their faces? Like: HOW CAN YOU NOT SEE THAT SUCH AND SUCH IS DOING SUCH AND SUCH?

I’m having that right now. Right. Now. As I watch the news, or whatever this performance art piece is happening bang on the dot each day. I actually screamed at the telly. My voice sounded so weird coming out of me so loud in such a small space; darkness again everywhere in no time at all.

So tell me, if anyone is reading this, what do you say out loud in the dark? What do you find you’re only able to say into that solid block of night; when there’s no chance you’ll ever hear a reply?
