.silence is nostalgic.

i'm listening to Bubbly by Colbie Calliat as I try to close my eyes and drift away. I've been sleeping alone for far too long. Before I went over to university, I had my brother who'd share a room with me. It was awful, we'd quarrel. I'd pee on his blanket as revenge. I can't switch on the lights to read. It was all awfully inconvenient.

Then when I went into uni, I had my girl. Before that, a room mate in the form of a human nerd. He was socially impaired but we made a good laugh or a good talk once in a while. I miss having someone to turn to in the middle of the night and just talk.

Suddenly, with everything in my room and the music. It never seemed bigger. It never seemed more silent.

the music changes track and churns out Mungkin Nanti by PeterPan.
I sing along with my crow like voice and again, my imaginary friend sings along while we laugh our arse off.
