::imaginative introspection::

Imagine that all life is an illusion. All that exists is this moment. No past, no future, each memory, every plan, a part of the illusion. Life, in a photograph.

Do you like the image of yourself?

Torn asunder

We talk until I drift to sleep
Smiling at your
Always creeping into my
Romantic ideology.

Science rings true in this
Mutual philosophy:
Why defy simple biology?

The heart wants what the heart wants

Music is the ultimate language,
And even whales sing
Now, though I wonder if perhaps they dream.

Surely you'd cite the late night cries
Of some beloved canine,
Chasing rabbits in an imaginary land.

Somehow you are home and I am all but lost without you.

Still aching from that loss, I cling to the reality if you. Stay alive, I can't handle any more.

You were family when mine was all too distant, if only in their minds.

Oh, love.

The light creeps in and here I am, wishing for the impossible, and wondering if you see me.

Love only hurts if you let it, yet here I am breaking my own heart again, worth it for a glimpse into your mind, and your thoughts on this world we share.

For this, the loud, dangerous, beautiful world that is -- a world torn asunder.

For now I'll sleep until the sun shines in my face. Here, in the only place I really feel safe.

Where you could reach me.


  1. This was amazing. I enjoyed the depth of your description.

  2. Your words...your words...are my thoughts...
    I lost the love of my life in 2008. I too, talk to him until I drift to sleep. I ache and long for him,and I cling to his memory..our memories. I am so lost without him. The light creeps in, and I continue to wish for the impossible, the desire of my heart...him...the heart wants what the heart wants...him, here with me. I do wonder if he sees me...hears me....feels me, as I do him. My world was and is torn usunder, and I know it will be until I take my last breath and we can be together again...
    Thank you for your beautiful words. You have a gift. God Bless...
