The sound of air,
The sound of water,
The sound of sand,
The sound of particles flowing above me.
The sound of blood running through me.

Little things gradually begin to connect.
Large things, growing ever larger, begin to crumble.
Becomes smaller. Disappears. Appears. Disappears.
No one is present; no one is present inside my heart.
Quiet and vast,
There stands a giant tree.
Quiet and vast, between the sky and grassy plain it stands.

Why is it that we try and show ourselves in a positive light?
Why is it that we try so hard everyday to have others like us?
Why is it that, when people finally like us, we want to be alone?
I want to be spoiled by someone.
I want to be drawn to something soft.
I want to reveal a secret to someone.
I want people to see my true self.
Or do I not want them to see?
I want people to see, but I am afraid of being seen.
Which is why I am sad.
That is what I think.

Close friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.
