Item Description

IconCaretDown

I have watched the past two hundred and thirty nine sunsets alone. There is something haunting about a sunset, the finality of everything you can and will achieve encapsulated into one sweeping moment- blink and you’ll miss it. But really it's what follows after that concerns you. The way you watch, powerless, as everything you know morphs into a sinister version of itself. Yes, there is real cruelty in darkness. You try to relive the feeling of warmth over and over again, embellishing its loving embrace; remembering how everything was OK when sunlight bathed your naked flesh. Then the stark reality hits you; no one is there to coo you to sleep anymore. Over and over again you search the bleak expanse of nothing, trying to take refuge in the life you had before you were unwillingly plunged into the abyss. But for now you take a breath and try to enjoy this moment, alone.
