a cry towards the absurd

The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.Camus

: Into the dawn a walking corpse
: unhung-ed by a hang-man,
: opened a door to a metal horse
: to ride by projects sanguine;

: with the blood of crying eyes
: who wept till tears ran sand;
: giving her life his living wife
: wept with him hand in hand.

I love it.
On second thought... existentialism is the only way to go [I really shouldn't be taken that seriously, I'm a terribly confused child! Whatever I say, it has a degree of tongue-in-cheek humor dontyakno? Of course I would take notice to alarm when I'm deadly serious... oh what an ego I have! Then again, don't we all and :sigh: I'm just I think so much more honest and upfront about it... okay no more entertainment from me]

But I thought it was lovely:

with the blood of crying eyes
who wept till tears ran sand;
giving her life his living wife
wept with him hand in hand.

tears, saltwater, salt, water evaporated by the burn of the sun of pain, salt, mineral, sand, glass

with him hand in hand

with him [her]reflection, glass

wept

tears for love
