Interest

05 Jun

It always seemed a cruel experiment.

The candle in the bell jar.

A boy amongst boys I watched the flame burning bright and brave and unsuspecting.  I suffered for it as it weakened and suffocated in the deprived air.  Mourned for it as it guttered and died, darkening the glass with funereal smoke.

A lack of oxygen has a similar effect on me..

I lose interest.
