Thirty-Seven Percent and Falling

For the first time in days, we sat together in the attic. I wished for a break to the winter gloom. The Muse was thinking her thoughts, and for once, I wasn't sure what they were. She of course knew mine, and said, "Nothing is changed, you know."

"It all changes."

"Not the important things."

"It's all important," I said, "to me."

She leaned against me, and I tensed myself against her. She sighed and said, "It's still me here, you know." After a moment, I relaxed, and she rested her head on my shoulder. After a minute, I put my arm around her shoulder and held her close.

"I do love you, you know," she said finally.

"I know," I said. "Let's watch the snow a while."

Outside the glass, winter continued to reign, while inside, a gap which had opened closed just a small, important bit.

Ah, just remember that no matter how tortured or miserable we might be, nobody's pain is unique. It's all been done before, and the world keeps on moving right along regardless. One can sit immobile and let it drown him, or ride the waves and carry on anyway.

I vote for the carrying on. Life is too short to spend it all being unhappy.

yeah, i know... that's what i keep getting, from all sides.

but that doesn't make this pain in my chest go away. this bruised ache in the gaping hole where my heart should be.

Nah, the truth never helps. You just have to ride it out and wait for the pain to subside. It does. Really. Just takes time.

Nah, you're not bringing anyone down. Friends make you talk. Then you talk. Then you're better. It works that way.
