Have you ever felt nothing? I mean nothing at all?
Complete nothing. Not a thought, not an emotion.
A nothing so complete, so empty, that it seems devoid even of nothingness itself. Not cold, not dark, not numb just…nothing?
I can’t tell you what it’s like to feel nothing just as I can’t describe to you the taste of coffee. You have to experience it yourself.
When someone laughs, or makes a joke, you feel nothing.
When someone smiles at you, you feel nothing.
When a scared and frustrated spouse screams at you, you feel nothing.
When an audience applauds, or shouts you off the stage, you feel nothing.
When you hear a child cry, you feel nothing.
A nothing so devastatingly complete that you have no option but to yield to it.
