In the past weeks I have tried to write honestly I have. Unfortunately everything seems to be coming out just wrong. It is like I can no longer use writing to articulate what is in my head and even the world inside me seems bleaker than normal. I can still see it, it is still there but I no longer live there. I am no longer a part of my own world. It is like looking through glass frosted over by wicked cold letting me see but not feel anything but a cold that not even my world contained. Anyone who is wondering about that world is welcome to read, more than a few posts contain glimpses of that world.
It’s like having a limb severed, being able to see it, but not feel it, not touch it. Not be a part of it. One wouldn’t expect it but it is quite painful actually. To not be in touch with something that has tortured me so beautifully, leaving me twisted and broken. It is much like not being able to touch the one that can twist you into a wonderfully broken thing and make your mind fly apart with the sheer ecstasy of it. Yeah you know who I mean. Only this is worse. That person is just a person, outside and at times replaceable. This is a part of me.
“Will it let me back in,” is the only question that I can ask because it is no longer my choice. They think that banishing the darkness with pharmaceuticals is the only way I will be free. What I don’t tell them is I like the darkness, enjoy it, it makes me whole, without it I am a ghost locked inside myself. I can’t feel, I can’t write, I can’t laugh, love, or breath. Stealing a part of me is something only a lover should do.
One thought on “There is Nothing Again”
Not sure what to say… maybe a big vertical hug across the ether and to confirm than sometimes there is nothing to write, but just feel… feel the nothingness, the darkness…. Breathing into ourself, being the silent observer to what is happening deep within… After a while we can recognise the consciousness that is observing and allow this consciousness to expand… expanding the loving life force that we breathe in each breath and little by little the darkness, the nothingness becomes a little lighter and a little more bare able…
I also wonder if there is anything creative that you can do to try and go beyond your mind maybe painting? Would be nice to hear from you. take care, Barbara
