Ever feel like a survivor was trying to keep to himself? I tried to keep a lot of myself to myself. Not good.

I found this in one of my journals from last night. It's an attempt to express the self perpetuating cycle of isolation that I rode. Maybe I still ride it.

Loneliness is a cloak. I hide behind it as a proficient misfit, dependent on interpersonal clumsiness to keep this garment in good repair. Naked without my solitude I fight back with outbursts of irrationality. Now something other than human, I will not rejoin the race that spawned me, the people who betrayed me. Truly, there is no place like home.

Sorry,

Joe

Home is where the heart is Joe.

Midnight,
It's in the same place it always was - it's just buried a bit deeper now.
