You won’t stay all night?
The muted, inarticulate despair these few words contained.
The unheard, unnoticed, unregistered cry of loneliness which arises from human beings.
And not a loneliness which could be appeased with one night,
or with a thousand nights, or with a lifetime, or with a marriage.
A loneliness that human beings could not fill. For it came from her separation from human beings. She felt her separation from human beings and believed the lover alone could destroy it.
When all is right between us, I can bear my life.
