Lost In A Basement

Basement

Staircases. Which? Being stuck by thorns is another thing; Does the goal exist? Averted gaze, silence, and concrete walls; Is it delusion, or are there padlocks on each thin room?

Reassurance

Wandering inward. When the pain subsides, outward. Fiddling with these numbers; They'll add up eventually. Like a child, every tinkerer needs reassurance.

Some sets unlock. Of them, many are not right. Clear directions hinder. Like a tinkerer, every child needs reassurance.
