"a reaction remarkably close to mountain sickness resulting from the sudden
terror brought on by the threat of happiness" -- On Love, Alain de Botton
Listening to you
Rationalise your thoughts away
While we play our intellectual blackjack
Our emotional russian roulette;
Each of us afraid to be hit,
Afraid to pull the trigger
As if we both have nineteen
And the bullet is in the chamber.
