I think I’ve finally done it; I’ve accomplished what I had set out to do. I’ve thrown away everything, I’ve thrown away my life; nobody wants me now. And I’m done, I’m done with the world; I’ll recede far into a shell where no one can reach – not that anyone would want to reach out to me. And even when I hear the fireworks going off outside, and perhaps far in the distance, and maybe I will even catch a portion of the sky lighting up – I will continue to stay in my shell; I will not leave. I will keep faithful to my solitude, because my solitude is the only thing that would not betray me. And what is more, there is no one more willing to listen to me than my solitude.
