The Horror Of Existence
Sunny


there are moments in time, when one's dissatisfaction with one's existence in

this cruel world is so acute that one wishes that the self would simply not

exist. one wishes to end the constant barrage of thoughts which float out of

our brain, seemingly out of nowhere, constructs of our interration with reality.

its one of those moments when i can see why a junky would want to be a junky.

there are no thoughts when one is lying passed out in one's pad. no worries

about thoughts and other petty trivialities of life when all one needs to plan

for is ones addiction. ofcourse, even a junky thinks, they do not live in a

vaccum of thought. i saw a video of a crack junky once, where he did all these

depraved acts, yet behind all that you could still see his brain working. his

lust for destruction and his addict fix still had not totally clouded his

thought factory. moments like this, one hates oneself, this world we live in

and by default all that defines existence. i used to wish i was a sparrow or an

ant in my next reincarnation but now i think i would like to be a virus. i

would like my existence boiled down to the narrowest of definitons or actions

possible. live, replicate, die.

im bummed out because my one and only friend is slipping away from me. he's

playing mind games with me because i guess he thinks he's superior. i told him

some vulnebalities which perhaps i should not have. he senses my desparation to

hold on to him my only friend. the silence of being alone is terrifying. i

know of no surer method of going mad then being lonely. papillon in his self

titled book spent three years in solitary without speaking to anyone. three

years in a cell walking back and forth. the will power of such an action is

beyond comprehension. i know or used to know, he's disappeared these days, this

guy on who you could see the ravages of loneliness. he was desperate to be my

friend and i was desperate to drink to fuel my own destructive urges. after an

experience in a bar, where he nearly got beat up he blamed me. he did not want

to be friends anymore. but, in terms of loneliness he was even more distorted

than me in his perceptions. he used to call people who he felt were not in tune

with him dilentte. i was one of the good guys until i became dilentte. i saw

him recently from a distance. it was bothering him that people were walking

behind him. he had a fear of physical proximity of other bodies. he stepped

aside and pretended to be looking at something to let them by and then resumed

walking. i've done that sometimes too, but not so consciously.

this is not a story. i had no ending in mind when i started to write it. it is

simply an exploration of the distance that is between all human beings. we

build rules and constructs to bridge that gap. some would say we never succeed.

some would offer love as the ultimate bridge. i don't know. some moments are

unreal and one can only experience them and hope that we survive, to live on in

this reality, our thoughts forever spouting out of the cosmic soup of our

consciousness.
