"A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires."

Paulo Coehlo

"A sad soul can kill you quicker, far quicker, than a germ."

John Steinbeck

Don’t Leave Me Alone by GG

Another story for the Comics Workbook Composition Competition 2014You can read it a bit larger on my website: ohgigue.com

This one was kind of emotionally hard to do and I almost abandoned it but then I thought maybe that’s a good reason to keep going. 

I’ll probably print this at some point when I figure out the best way to do the reds and blues (riso, maybe?) and can afford it. In the meantime, you can still order the print version of my last story, Semi-Vivi from my website. Thanks for reading!

"I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself."

Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

"It is easier to bear the worries of wandering than to find peace in your hometown, where only the sage can live in a happy house surrounded by trite troubles and daily distractions."

Hermann Hesse

Don’t go far off, not even for a day,
because I don’t know how to say it - a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in
an empty station when the trains are
parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don’t leave me, even for an hour, because then
the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve
on the beach, may your eyelids never flutter
into the empty distance. Don’t LEAVE me for
a second, my dearest, because in that moment you’ll
have gone so far I’ll wander mazily
over all the earth, asking, will you
come back? Will you leave me here, dying?

–Pablo Neruda
