fuck I wrote “her laugh forever more silent” and then imagined if I had to write that for my wife and made myself sad

feeling extremely powerful empathy for an anonymous imaginary 17th century widower I just now created

@laser when Lemuel Wenterworth Brown (1652-1719) wrote “her laugh forever more silent,” I felt that...

@Aleums thank you. every now and then the muses pick you for a classic Good One and you’ve just gotta listen and press that Post button

@LuigiEsq Adding a clause to my will demanding a 17th century style tombstone

@LuigiEsq Alternately, a statue of me on a horse with the epitaph "He saved us all" so that future generations will wonder what the fuck I did

@LuigiEsq Prepare for death and follow me is a fucking amazing thing to put on a tombstone

@Thomas I know right? I want it on mine. 17th century people had such a sardonically fatalistic relationship with death

@LuigiEsq I mean, dude kicked the bucket at 26 and that probably wasn't uncommon, so you're gonna have a pretty fatalistic view I reckon, lol

@Thomas yeah, death was a lot more of a familiar figure back then.

@LuigiEsq @Thomas I've often thought it was healthier relationship with death in a lot of ways. I mean, a crappy world to live in with so *much* death, but it was a fact of life that people were more comfortable with
