Locked together with the things and memories we've collected. There are no more spectators around. And​ do we need this stuff now, being​ alone with it? Or was it just a cover​ to​ the public? No, this​ is not a censure —​ just a suggestion to think about.

I'm happy to say, I like​ this shine of gems and gold​ even if I'm the only one who sees it. So I prefer​ to hold jewels​ in my hands and look at them, rather than put them on.

Perhaps this is the only action that makes sense now. Endless contemplation of a world shrunk to the size of a single room. Vanity due to​ the sole possession of beauty, which doesn't​ need to be protected from anyone...​ However, you can't show it to anyone either.
