“Despite the bright daylight, the city feels dark.
It's cold, and imposing, and unnatural, and it doesn't want me here. They don't want me here. Talking, talking, talking, and I'm walking, and they're talking, and they don't want me here. I'm an outlier, and they know it. It knows. We all know.
I try to make contact, still it's not enough... I can't help but laugh. I laugh, I laugh so hard I choke. They know. Trying to be someone, anyone, that's worth some love, or ... or admiration ... or... is it ... is it pity?
Pity, pity, what a pity. They know. It KNOWS. (i know). Needy for some love, still it's NOT ENOUGH!!!
So I decide, I'll try to be someone — no, DARE to be someone. Someone, someone they'll remember.
Oh they'll remember.”

About the curator - Matt Jenko
Hi my name is Matt, but my friends call me Matt. I’m on the wrong side of 29 (damn I hate it every time I have to update that number), definitely feeling my age, but never felt happier and more content than I do at this point in my life. I’ve been through some rocky patches (who hasn’t) and lived to tell the tale, and boy do I gots some stories.
When I’m not giving opinions absolutely nobody asked for, I’m doing a worldbuilding with my passion project, vivaellipsis. If you like offbeat nonsense delivered through immersive escapism, then go and get involved. Or don’t, I’m not telling you what to do. I’m not yer boss.
I’m a simple man with simple interests. I like Yorkshire tea, the sound of rain on the window, and a bloody good story.
