Note to self



Raise the roof. Let in no more light. 

Make it idiot proof so that no one gets in and none can escape.
Their own stupid games.
All the love never made, affections never shared, unkissed forgotten moments and depths left unexplored.
Darkest are those without intimacy, far from sympathy and compassion.
Destructive patterns forged when we were young.
Just becoming an older version
Subtler and more resistant to change.
A unique strain, Majestic in it's own flawed way.

    That last line says it all. Life is Majestic in it's own flawed way.

    A fine write RDS.

  • L. B. Mek

    what a comprehensive and well considered summation of life as we perceive it, liked the introspective commentary elements especially, a great write full of poignantly crisp phrasing

  • Suresh

    Change is recognition, yet we are so resistant.
    A poetic introspection for me.
