Drifting Thoughts

(Original post date: Saturday, August 9th, 2008)

I am filled with an emptiness that’s larger than an ocean blue across a vast horizon. Talking does not make me feel better. It only hurts more when the words don't come as easily as one may think. Talk, but nothing is coming out, only emptiness is left.

I can't express myself, can't find myself in this skin suit I'm wearing. I am only a shell of who I used to be. Where have I gone? Where do I begin to look for me?

Shall I light a fire so that I can find my way home? Shall I send out a message in a bottle? It's hard to describe to someone how you feel when you can't feel it yourself and the words have disappeared into the darkness of your mind.

Darkness is falling over my soul... the soul of a lost child, trapped in a grown woman’s body and who has never experienced childhood. I have absorbed the sins of my father and mother, and have been lost in their hell.

I want to escape this world, leave it for a beautiful paradise... fly up to the sky, release my chains into the wind, and be free... escape to that quiet place I so desire to find, where I can smell the scents of the earth all over my body and let it blanket me.

I would love to sleep and not wake... slumber deep into the night... drift into a place of limitless air, breathe warm breaths of heaven, and lie down in a pillow of fresh dew.

I have nothing left in me. I am being drained slowly day in and day out. Soon, I will be a shell of who I was, unrecognizable to me or you... nothing left but my hollow corpse of dried blood, cracked flesh, and broken bones.

What used to be has to end. Nothing is as it was. Let go and go forth without hesitation... love and be loved... stay strong and never look back.

I, you, we are only one, and one we will always be.

JB

  2. Gorgeous posting. I relate to so much of what is written here. I will try to locate Drifting Thoughts after writing this. Many of us who live in darkness take heart that we can communicate about it. I think it is more encouraging to know there are others out there who are listening. And RELATING. Keep up the wonderful, and healing, work!

  3. This is what I love about you, JB - how you're laugh-out-loud funny, yet with a melancholy streak. Both traits that you express with razor sharp precision. ....and if anything's troubling you, I'm here for you.

  11. @EFH.....thanks for the kind words. I can dig deep and when I do this is what appears. I'm not afraid to feel sad. If you don't feel it your never going to heal it....so keep feeling it's the only way. I feel sorry for all those people who bury they're true feelings inside themselves so deep that they start to decay from the inside out.

    Much Love

    Thanks Anna for your kind words you made my day.

    Love You

  14. @Cinner...to be honest the cakes are making me so bored out of my tree. I actually hate it. It takes alot for me to hate something but this cake business is giving me nightmares. As for this post like I said to EFH and Anna,

    If you don't feel it your never going to heal it....so keep feeling it's the only way.

    Thank-you for the words it makes it easier to have all you guys for a support system and this blog is my saving grace.

    Love

  16. @Shadow...your very welcome. I love your writing and you inspire me to better myself and to heal from all the wounds that have been caused by the ones I loved and trusted.

    Healing takes time but forgetting will be impossible. These memories of the hurt will always be there . I'm just learning how to put then aside so that I can move on and forgive myself. It's me now that I focus on and not them.

    Love so short forgetting so long....Paulo Neruda


    Love You Lots
