Where have you been?

Diane, I need you. Oh, God, I need you, too! Then why were you away so long? I keep getting pulled deeper into this human world again and again.  Why is that? You know why. .........yes, I do. And I find it so sad sometimes. It makes me sad to find myself, once again, caught …
