Anticipation

I am looking for an inspiration
And I think I found it in your heart
It’s the kind of thing you get when you’re not looking
It’s the kind of thing you had from the start

Put me on a ship that is sinking
On a voyage to an untamed land
Take away the freedoms I wanted
I understand

Please, don’t take your love away from me
Don’t take your love away from me
Please don’t take your love away from me

Please don’t take your love from me
Please don’t take your love from me

Put me inside flesh that is dying
A ghost that wanders without rest
Buried by desires and weakness
I understand

Please, don’t take your love away from me
Don’t take your love away from me
Please don’t take your love from me
Please don’t take your love from me
Hmmmmmm
Hmmmmmm

Withdrawal

You ever just had one of those days where you just feel the need to withdraw, into yourself, into a part of you that you seldom occupy? Maybe it’s a dark side, a place that is usually hidden, until all of a sudden you find yourself in this unfamiliar territory. How do you embrace it?

For me, it’s stripping off all the dressings that polish my avatar: makeup, jewelry, tattoo layers, eye liner, nice dresses, even responsibilities to a degree, all in an effort to get back to basics, back to the heart of myself. I find a place where I can retreat from everyone else and just “be” until the day when the sun, whether tomorrow or a week from now, returns to warm my heart and my spirit again, basking me in its beauty, warmth and perfection.

Here’s to dark nights followed by sunny days. May we all bask in the radiance sooner rather than later.
