A Poem About Relationships
Too numb to attach
Too lost to feel
The way is hidden
Truth never revealed
Inside of my bubble
Not safe, alone
No bridge to my island
No voice on the phone
I feel in 2D
The flatline, divine
It rips beyond the realms seen
This popped into my head yesterday, so I thought I’d put it out there . 🙂 I hope everyone had a great weekend and is doing okay. I’m fine, in spite of the downer tone of the poem; it’s merely a reflection of times passed.
You know, it’s odd. I love Jay SO very much. But some little part of me knows that if he died or we split up, I’d get over it and move on with my life because that’s just what you have to do. Every time something major has come crashing down around me, I’ve gotten past it. And I kind of hate that pragmatism in me, because sometimes you want to just throw yourself on the ground and have a shitfit like a 2 year old child. But I never do. I don’t know if I like this or hate this about me, but it just is. No one who has ever known me would describe me as closed off or introverted, but no matter how much something matters to me, I know I could live without it.
Also, I miss you with a sharp poignancy I can’t really explain. But instead of stalking you and chatting on gtalk, I’ll probably just go back to playing pokemon.
I can certainly appreciate the lure of Pokémons. 😀
It’s more, to me, about trying to maintain relationships. I’ve got a weird super-peace with death, compliments of my (step)dad being terminally ill since the 80s. Though having said that, now that I’m in a healthier place, I think there’s probably more of a chance that folks dying might actually get to me.
Love your poem. Some days it makes sense to just go to sleep. Happiness can be elusive. Most days my husband helps and I feel fine
I’d definitely not be getting by so well if not for my husband. It’s wonderful when one finds the right partner. 🙂
Unconditional love is what I get from my husband also. I truly doubt I’d be alive today had I not had him when I needed him most. Great poem.
Thanks! And yes, hooray for partners. When the right one came around, I snatched him up good. 😀
I love the poem.
