Reflections of a Skyline

And I wanna play hide and seek, give you my clothes, tell you I love your shoes, sit on the steps when you take a bath, and massage your neck, and kiss your face, and hold your hand and go for a walk. Not mind when you eat my food, and meet you at Rudy’s and talk about the day. Talk about your day and laugh at your paranoia. Give you tapes you don’t listen to, watch great films… watch terrible films. And tell you about the TV program I saw the night before, and not laugh at your jokes. Want you in the morning, but let you sleep for awhile. Tell you how much I love your eyes, your lips, your neck. Sit on the steps smoking ‘til your neighbors come home. Sit on the steps smoking ‘til you come home. And worry when you’re late, and be amazed when you’re early. I’d give you sunflowers and go to your party and dance. Be sorry when I’m wrong and happy when you forgive me. Look at your photo’s and wish I’d known you forever. Hear your voice in my ear, feel your skin on my skin. And get scared when you’re angry. I tell you you’re gorgeous. And hug you when you’re anxious and hold you when you’re hurt and want you when I smell you and offend you when I touch you and whimper when I’m next to you, and whimper when I’m not. Smother you in the night and get cold when you take the blanket and hot when you don’t. Melt when you smile, dissolve when you laugh. But not understand how you think I’m rejecting you when I’m not rejecting you and wonder how you could think I’d ever reject you. And wonder who you are. But I accept you anyway. And tell you about the tree angel and enchanted forest boy who flew across the ocean because he loved you. I’d buy you presents you don’t want and take them away again and ask you to marry me and you say no again but keep on asking because though you think I don’t mean it but I always have from the first time I asked you. I wander the city thinking, but I’m empty without you, but I want what you want and think I’m losing myself. But I’ll tell you the worst me and try and give you the best of me, because you don’t deserve any less. Answer your questions when I’d rather not. And tell you the truth when I really don’t want to. And try to be honest because I knew you prefer it. And think it’s all over but hang on for just ten more minutes before you throw me out of your life, forget who I am. And let me try and get closer you.

…And somehow communicate some of the over-whelming, undying, overpowering, unconditional, all-encompassing, heart-enriching, mind-expanding, ongoing, never-ending love I have for you.

Tranquility

sawyerjamaal:

In monochrome moments

And fire lit freeze-frames

Is where I find myself the most.

The rain on the window keeps soft rhythm

While the fire crackles in response.

A cloudless sky hides behind those eyes.

So serene, this scene unfolds:

A roaring fire, harmonious rain, and a metronome heartbeat.

Happiness and Sorrow

Our days on this earth are numbered. These days have a beginning and an end. A birth, then a death. Some believe in a life after death, some do not. Some believe that in this life we are born with a purpose, some do not. Whatever you believe, the reality is this; After birth, the moment you breathe that first breath, you are introduced with life. When you die, you take your last breathe and that signals the end of life on Earth. 

Between birth and death, we have what is called a life. Life is defined as the animate existence or period of animate existence of an individual. Some define life as the events, some the memories. But what makes up those events in our existence are those we all wish only the best of. Humanity as a whole defines the moments that we find the pinnacle of our lives as a product of happiness.

Happiness is crucial to our overall sense of being. Without happiness, we are nothing. We are not the friendly neighbor, the kind citizen, or the small ray of light that keeps others in tune with their own felling of joy and happiness that we bring upon them through our own.

Although happiness is crucial to the lives of people around us and our own, we are not entitled to happiness, but the pursuit of happiness will be the life long endeavor that we will always find so prodigious as we go through droughts and famines of joy. In spite of this simple fact that melancholy will be a part of this endeavor we cannot let it bring us down further. These times of suffering and grief are the same events that we base the simple factor of happiness and joy on. 

So do not let these times of melancholy and grief bring you down. Instead, them play their part in your life as the catalyst that just enhances the good in your life. Moreover do not let your times of sorrow turn you into a person that you are not. Sorrow is so powerful that it can become contiguous to people around you. 

Find a solid balance between happiness and sorrow to affect you and people around you in a positive way. This is because you are the light that shines through this Earth and there will be a day that you will burn out.

Thank You

Bumped Your Arm? Here’s a Band-Aid.

We have all had a kid come up to you, or watch one go to their mother or father after falling down on the ground and ask for a Band-Aid. There isn’t any blood, or even a scratch, they just got bumped. But the kid gets the Band-Aid and they suddenly stop crying, go back outside, and run around like kids do.

Kids find comfort in having a Band-Aid after they are hurt. So do we.

Well, maybe not after getting bumped or bruised; but for our emotions. When friends or family moves away, get let go from a job, get a bad grade on a test, or whatever your case may be; we from time to time get emotionally bumped or bruised. Then we, like kids, search for a source of comfort.

You may find comfort from many things; friends, family, religion, chocolate, food, candy, social attention, music, or in the most unfortunate circumstance; addiction. But whatever you find comfort in during times of emotional discomfort, your are patching up one thing, with another. This can be very good, and this can be very bad.

If you have experienced some emotional discomfort, you might as well patch that situation with something that could be beneficial to you. Besides, why make a bad situation, worse by letting it lead to something that could be destructive to your future. If you are running to addictions to comfort you during times of trial, you are damaging your future and your family. But if you are emotionally damaged and respond in such a manner of which is productive, keep doing so. Make it a habit.

Whether is productive, or damaging, there is many ways to receive comfort for your emotional distress. Like a Band-Aid, there are many different colors, characters, or patterns for the kid to choose from. You just have to choose the one that looks the best for you.

So, would you like a Elmo or Dorah Band-Aid?

Question Of The Day #7

What inspired you today?

As I was driving to a local coffee shop this morning, I saw a MicroBus. (Aka, hippie van) and when I was driving next to it, I looked to see who was driving it. He looked like he was in his mid 20’s and I gave the guy a thumbs up, he looked over and smiled and put up the peace sign. He looked so happy, like he didn’t have any worry in his life. This man and his van inspired me to live today stress free as well. It’s worked so far, and it’s wonderful. I want to see how long this can last for me.
