I have seen people perish because of someone else’s presence and also those who have perished because of someone’s absence. This man on the video is the second type of person who is hell-bent on drinking himself to death after his wife’s death. He has sons. But he doesn’t care a jot. He has property. But he doesn’t care a jot. Having to live is a pain to him.
I am also familiar with this sense of loneliness and so I might have written;
There is nothing like death
There is nothing like parting
You are floating in the air
And I am breathing you in.
