write what hurtsi'm here to tell youabout fire and living& how both burn even if you ignore themit's not about what feels goodit's about what doesn'tcornering what hurtsand exposing itreally displaying itpedestal on highfor what it isand not what it pretends to beyou are not livinguntil you hurtyou can't be aliveif all you know is comfortcomfort is only a signthat you are doing what you knowit is admittance of limitationbecause you are humanand only know so muchand it's agonising to thinkthat you can be comfortable with thatand not want to reach outand touch every thing you findand read every book you seeand hear every sound you canbecause enough is never enoughis never enough is alwaystoo much.
Believe MeI knowYou keep six billion secretsbehind the bends of your knees.But if you let me uncurl your legsI could let every guilt ridden pound of shamefloat away on summer breezes.And if you realized how light your limbs really are,would you finally dance with me?And I knowYou trap all of your feelingsin the dips of your collarbone.Chained down in folds of skin,If you let me pick this lockI can release all those emotions you're so afraid of havingAnd if you see your own feet unbound,would you finally run free with me?And I knowYou cradle doubts and insecuritiesin the palms of your hands.They leak into your blood stream,weighted down fears and uncertaintysinking like rocks to the bottom of your heart.But if you let me kiss down every vein in your wrist,would you finally believe you're beautiful?
on casting hope asidethe very ground we stand on is unseen. i know very little, but i know that your eyes are green, and that it never fails to strike me like a blow of lightning each time i find them so close to mine.your father is a carpenter and your mother cuts hair. you are on your way to becoming a neuroscientist and have a fascination with shoulder musculature. you live further away from me than i deem comfortable, and you have two brothers, one of whom is an exact replica of you, five years in the past. i find this endearing but because you knew i would, i refuse to tell you. i also will not tell you how hard it is for me to fall for someone as easy to fall for as you. i resist with every inch of tension in my skin to feel the fire that alights in my belly when you remove the space we both painfully know is present between us. i snap myself like an elastic band to a colder, lonelier place to keep hope offshore, drifting
we don't sound like a whisper.The sun never sets over the water, but you still take me there whenever dusk comes to meet the horizon. We sit out on the rocks with me tucked tight against your chest, while you count stars like other people count blessings, but we're only half lucky with all these city lights ruining your chances. I know you're tired, love, but I'm terrified. I'm running out of ways to stop myself from telling you I miss you because twenty four hours isn't a long time to be separated and I'm really just more afraid of what you're doing when I'm not there -- and of what you're thinking when I am. I've been burnt enough times before to learn that loving with only half your heart will save you from the fire, but I know that's not what I'm doing here. I don't want you to be a mistake worth making. I want this to be real this time.I keep playing out all the ways you could hurt me in my head, not because I think you will, but because it'll sting less if it actually happens. I've learned to prepare myself
Tip of the Day: Dealing with StressStress is the root for many health problems. It's not necessary. Just do what you need to do. Stop stressing.In high pressure situations if I start stressing I will think what is the worst that could happen and how could I bounce back from that. Once I see that I would still be ok and be able to come back from that difficulty... then the stress disappears. Then I start imagining what would it feel like to be successful and that gets me excited to continue towards my goals.Stress is something that everyone deals with in their own ways but if you don't have an effective way to deal with it, feel free to try my method.Bobby
