LAUGHTER, ABSURDITY, YOUR ABSENCE In my despair I asked the clairvoyant old woman will you bring the sky to cheer me up? She answered, “I can’t, the sky is already around you.” I never knew the sky was around me. Swans flying in pairs don’t feel lonely Doves mating for life aren’t lonely either Ducks warm their young ducklings with heat their breasts give a cozy warmth, they feel affection “But I can bring the sun to warm you,” she said. "but I do not want that kind of warmth, I miss my love's fervor not the sun's heat." Sometimes my misery turns to laughter with the absurdity I’m not famous or rich but I'm not living a deprived life either so why do I feel this depression that drowns me? Could it be your absence drives me to the madness of loneliness?
