I am not going anywhere to continue. An incomprehensibly quiet place in between. It is good as it is. Without falling into place. Without being okay. I don't know what I want, what benefits me. Yes, I know it well. That which exists for the sake of clarity. Which is never easy to keep track of, because the obscurity creeps into everything.

The call signals, the send signals that are waiting for while more are coming. I turn in a direction where I think things exist. A hand on a dark background makes a sign.

Can't see the difference between hell and paradise, one is the other's leprosy, a spasm, a dark path, a dark path makes it easier to see what I've already seen, behind me it's already in front of me, as if I were only a few seconds, one or two just, on an empty platform, at a major station, think that's where it started.
