  1. Wow, what a haunting piece. Ignorance can be bliss, but at the same time, it’s rather surreal to substitute a reality for what you want it to be just to see a semblance of change. This one hit a little close to home for me. As usual, nicely done!

    • Ahh I know what you mean – ignorance can be bliss when you just feel like you’re fated for … It’s when you feel like you can’t take the reality anymore and just need to “escape”. Thank you, Viet! I hope you don’t feel that way too often though, albeit it being very tempting at times.

      • Thank you. It’s not a bad thing to dream, but to make it a facade is much like drowning, wanting to gasp for air in the end. I could go on about reaching out for that languor, but you’ve inspired an idea I’d like to explore, hahah. Likewise, I hope you don’t let that need to escape overwhelm you. 🙂

      • Haha nice that you’ve been inspired to explore the idea – can’t wait to see it! I wonder what gasping for air in the end would be – the awakening to a reality you’re unprepared for? Thank you all the same 🙂

    • You’re much too kind! And that’s really a nice way of embracing the real. Crying for somethings real and being able to wipe them away is something that can’t be taken away from us individually. Great!
