Hard to comes to terms with the fact that someone you're very inclined to trust is a big fucking liar. Well, that's imprecise, I already knew she was a big fucking liar, can be a total wreck & someone from work appears, all smiles & interest- just thought she'd have the sense not to lie to me.

Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.

For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore &c., &c.
