Made one of my own volition, with the systematic shunning of societal norms for egotistical and altogether self destructive reasons. Self-indulgent? Yes, that was the point. An absolute necessity? Undoubtedly. Headway had been made in grappling my way out of this chasm I have created for myself.
But a relapse into formerly forgotten ways is upon me. I'm plunging head first into the icy waters of the crushing discontent which inudates this Potemkin Village of a life. The facade is crumbling and the vacuous nature of a disingenuous existence is being exposed.
Home sweet Hermitage.
