Went out last night

There was a strong sense of….distance.

No, more than that.

Alienation.

From everyone.

Everyone of the human species.

It was a profound feeling.

Seconds after chatting with someone,

Moments after cracking a joke,

It was as if it had happened decades ago

And I was half-remembering it.

Or as if it was just a scene from a TV movie

Half-watched before falling asleep on the sofa.

Their body movements

Their facial expressions,

The sounds carried by their voices

They meant nothing to me

Their figures bringing visions

Of wind-up dolls

Clicking and whirring

Through their paces.

When the present has no refuge

I turn to the past.

And whenever I listen to music like this

I feel like coming back home

From a very long journey.
