The Constant Mourner

You will yet find out what alone is! Now you are stunned, something inside you still protests: ‘How can this be?! How can it?’ But the surprise shall pass, and it’s strange how quickly facts are established. The bitter news of yesterday becomes a part of your life, and you will live with it — you and it, a man and his hump. The pain will grow dull, the sharp point will grow blunt, your life will become a cold ember, and only from time to time, in the soul’s wicked game, shall the certainty unravel, and you will once again be scorched by the pain of initial surprise, a pain whose force knows no boundaries, and

you will scream: ‘He is dead! He is dead! He…’
