A disconnect from your loved ones
I wish it were sudden and abrupt
A power outage in the midst of an electric atmosphere.
Ateast then there would be a reason...a determination to repair the fault as swiftly as the disconnect itself.
Instead, it moved stealthily...
A faulty globe
A loose cable
A problematic side-plug
But nothing screaming loud enough for my attention to hear.
They say the best way to boil a frog
Is not to throw it into the fiery bath
Because it will take flight immediately upon landing.
Instead, leave it in comfortable waters and gradually increase the temperature. By the time it realizes, it will have been par boiled.
I am a passive amphibian boiled to perfection.
