outside my window

hkpretty
The prettiest sights are almost invariably tainted
howbeit calculated efforts to keep our perspectives crystal clear.
A willfully affirmed fogged vision.

We like what we see,
forfeit what we don’t.
That’s human beings for you.

Yes, the world’s less glorious with your eyes wide open.
What’s that stuck on your window panes?
Maybe you should get it removed.

"Do you see the story? Do you see anything?... It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream - making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation... No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence - that which makes its truth, its meaning - its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream - alone." Marlow in Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad.
