So that hug today was our first in a long time, and you commented on it. I wonder why. I’m lying in bed right now and you’re playing computer games completely oblivious to the fact that I am lying in bed right now.

You wonder why you haven’t got anywhere in life, and yet you sit playing computer games for hours at a time. You wonder why the sex has died and yet you sit playing computer games for hours at a time.

And you wonder why sometimes I am so distant, and yet you sit, playing computer games, for hours at a time.

Where can this go?
