I've read the latest books, seen the newest films. I've sat by campfires sharing urban legends with the most naive of people, and I have rowed out into the middle of lakes, gazing up into the night sky, feeling every star.
I've learned new languages, and I've taught myself obscure card games that no one really cares about. I've lived in the desert amongst nomadic tribes on the other side of the planet, and I've explored coastal ghost towns illuminated by fireworks in the night.
I've gone to Mass, I've attended synagogue, and I have prayed in Buddhist temples. I've rediscovered carnal energy, searching for Adam through every boy I touch, reclaiming all that I had repressed.
Nothing has worked. The black clouds of grief still hang suspended on invisible wires no one else can see over our home.
