This is such a raw experience of what it is to be bulimic. I commend you for using this outlet. It is not always easy to express.

I wish I were a plant

Brian here ~ Good Evening AJ I agree with your first Premise - about the MOUTH & STOMACH being the rooth cause of a lot of our daily niggling ailments & discomfort because of what WE acctually eat & drink during a 24 hour day! Keep a diary for a week and you will suprise yourself! However if this is not a death wish - if you stay HUMAN you will have to be fed INTRAVENIOUSLY with predigested food which is not very pleasent ! There are People (with Bowel Cancer etc) who are forced to do just that !
Your alternative however - of being a *Flowering Plant* is not as easy & stress free as it looks ! During each period of Sunlight you MUST PHOTOSYNTHESISE to survive ! So three things are necessary. SUNLIGHT (not a problem) CO2 (not a problem too much @ the moment) H2O (this can be a problem in arid regions) also the water must contain N P K and other minerals for growth. So in a sense a Plant does have internal Digestive & Synthetic Systems to function ! CO2 & H2O combine in the leaves (using Chlorophyll C55H72MgN4O5) to form GLUCOSE (C6H12O6) which polymerises to form STARCH & CELLULOSE and it can make other Molecules by Plant Bosynthesis to form the Colours & Scents in your Flowers. So there is just as much going on in a Plants Digestive System as in the Human one. I teach Applied Scince in a Adult College (17+) and i am responsible - - with Tecnicians - for an Allotment & Greenhouses and believe you ME ~ Plants can get Pretty Sick despite apparently not having a MOUTH or a STOMACH so you might like to think again. If we get thirsty or hungry we can move to a water or food source ! A PLANT has to LIVE or DIE where its planted !

Love Peace & Joy to You & Yours
Yours ANGELA & BRIAN 💛💛💛

Have you actually tried laying down on your own at night in a graveyard. It starts off very peaceful.....

I don’t want to read between lines anymore
dusk arising said:

This is so similar to my thoughts of the afterlife. A place of unconditional love.

Don\'t misunderstand me though, I have no death wish nor do i see one in your writing.

A desire to be accepted for what you are, unconditionally. Hard to find outside of a mother\'s love.

I don’t want to read between lines anymore
Clara said:

This makes me think of a mirror image almost, an alternative universe, where what you wish for, to belong and accepted, is happening. But maybe it isn\'t where you are now.

Distressing. Is this to self or to another, or yet still oncoming schizophrenia?

dusk arising said:

You told it like it ever was. Desire is so dangerous in the hands of the young. Most of us survive it.
Excellent style you have commanded here. Very readable and great allowance for your readers picture making.

I want this in my favourites and i want to read much more in this style.

Lest We Forget

Lest We Forget
dusk arising said:

A famous poem by Dylan Thomas comes to mind, it begins:- \'Do not go gentle into that dark night, rage, RAGE against the dieing of the light\'. It was written about his father on his deathbed.
You are the sum of both that which makes you different from everyone else and that which makes you the same - humanity. Rage on with measured indifference and stand your ground when your footing is firm.
An excellent, intriguing piece of writing.

States of Ignored
Fay Slimm. said:

An amazing use of word here to underline the abuse life dishes out to some who cringe in facades until they resist those \"states of ignored\" - a compelling read AJ.

States of Ignored
sylviasearcher said:

I was unable to ignore this poem.

I loved it.

So many states of ignored...
It really gets my mind thinking how much I focus too long on my own invisibility

Some adverts are just silly: \'Must give 110%\' - which is impossible! lol.
