General observations

Day Off

eee

I’m tired of fighting and rationalizing
Of thinking things through, modesty, restraint
Doing the right things to do
Bring forth the screaming laughter and wild abandon
The living for love and every distraction
Running barefoot and fucking all day
The pulling, pushing, biting, play fighting
Drinking, singing and running away
I need a day off
And today is the day

Reminder

When it comes, it comes suddenly and violently. Its not uncommon or rare and people all over the world suffer it but its unlike any other pain I’ve felt. After 6 hours of struggling through an attack I’m exhausted and wake up the next morning feeling as though a truck has hit me. Every bit of me aching, physically depleted.

My brain a morphine fogged mush.

This kind of pain and fear reminds you that life is short, that at 40+ half of your life is already behind you. That the only real losses are the loss of the people you love, of health, of peace. Of feelings never felt, goals never attempted and love never expressed or experienced.

It reminds you to run towards the light, to live joy and reach up. To share love, be tactile. And to have a plan, make things happen.

Before its too late

It is what it is

If you invest time and emotional energy into resentment you colour yourself an ugly shade of bitter.

That is not to say that one has to forget the wrongs done to us or how we felt about them, just that to dwell on them is unhealthy. To make them the focus of our thoughts and actions only damages us further.

Soon it becomes that we can’t differentiate the small slights from the outright blatant offences or the facts from the wishes.

Somethings we don’t have the power to change. We have to accept that, no matter how hard or how much it may hurt.

The Death Of Love; Part 1

last_kiss_by_deignis-d49vp5a

The kisses are the first to go
No more at the goodbyes or hellos
Or deep and urgent
Hungriness
Just perfunctory quick brushes
In attempts to convince others
Of an affection long since waned

Loss

smoke

When hope dies
A light in the soul flickers out
Ne’er to ignite again
With it wishes wisp
Like smoke out into the unknown
The silent scream of a dreams death
Is never heard
But felt behind the breastbone
As tear blurred eyes lead one home
