Intro
We are each born with a knowing pain in our soul, and this innate understanding is loneliness – a lifetime is spent waiting, with a desperate deep ache for someone to fill the cavity we cannot otherwise fill. 

Artist list

Erinn M. Cox

When the other, it seems, is and has always been absent, the suffocation of loneliness becomes far more than a feeling, it swells into an insanity of our own making.  We are driven mad by a relentless pursuit for a chosen other with a bittersweet and intoxicating need that is exciting and devastating, loving and heartbreaking. 
 
It is an agonizing cycle: painful in the utter dissection of the self with each invitation and rejection; each a beautiful and grounded humiliation where we no longer even recognize ourselves as we wholly long for someone, anyone, to alleviate the paralyzing fear of dying alone.  And it is this unconditional emotion of longing, the magnification of intense and unforgiving loneliness, that we mourn as it slowly and decidedly kills us.
