Do you smile to tempt a lover, Mona Lisa?
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart?
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, Mona Lisa?
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art?
Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa
(Nat King Cole)
Misery of all explanations before an inexhaustible demand.
(Georges Bataille, Inner Experience)
She was looking at the crowd.
“You see, I’m staring like crazy but, you know, I don’t want to go crazy.”
(Georges Bataille, “L’ABBE C”)
I need you!!!!!
