As lonely as loneliness feels, it still is a common ache.
A rook on a chessboard, in no control of itself or its fate.
Envying every piece that knows its place.
Longing to be the first one to go.
But something makes it stay, something makes it sway.
"Am I asking too much from life? Is this all there is?"
So the rook left it all behind
The ruthless queen so confined
The time has come for it to move on.
It left its chessboard in exhaustion
longing for connection
Tired of perfection
The sensitivity that drives that feeling of outsider-ness
And becoming part of something bigger
something so much more
so much more
than a rookie mistake
This three piece garment is inspired by Frightened Rabbit's song "The Loneliness And The Scream".
