spar(s)e- alone and lonely. by- adventureclubviral

some people choose to be alone- alone with their thoughts or their books, alone for the quiet, alone from distraction.
when you look around- you see people everywhere that appear to have chosen to be alone. and sometimes you forget that alone is a choice. because when you look around- everyone who is alone- looks so lonely…


feels like it looks. tastes like it feels.

feels like it looks

feels like it looks- by- adventureclubviral.

do steel bars always feel lonely? do cages always have to look like capture? i don’t know.

but not all beings behind bars nor all creatures in cages necessarily feel things the way it looks to us. this photograph looks seems desperate but the rest of our senses are missing if we pass that judgement. we only look at photographs. we cannot truly feel them- (not to mention smell them, taste them or hear them). even the photographer can only relive the moment of capturing this image- a moment that has come and gone. how lonely to think such a moment… is lost.



tastes like it feels- by- theStephALA.

1/2 cup of butter, a bag of mini marshmallows, vanilla, green food coloring and corn flakes.  nauseatingly sweet, sticky and unnaturally green.  an instant stomachache after inevitable over consumption.

it tastes like it feels:  my childhood.

[excerpt of an interview]

i don’t feel so alone when i pretend she’s real.

what is so awful about being alone that you have to pretend?

being alone is lonely.

so you feel less lonely when you carry around a stuffed dog?

she’s good company. and she’s a lamb.

are you aware of everyone staring at you? 

staring at us. yes ma’am, i sure am.

have you ever considered the company of a real woman?

the likes of me in the dating pool? it sounds like a recipe for a drowning.
