The longer you can take your focus away from it,And onto something else,The more chance you have of forgetting it, BUT,Why is it so hard?Even for me, it's impossible to reconcile having been caught up … Continue reading Why Detaching From Somatic Obsessions Is So Damned Difficult
I'm sad to say it, but…They weren't even missed,So I rented out their rooms,On ol' AirBnB, Their bones were later discovered,Hiding in plain sight,Mixed into the dirt they left,Beneath our feet, Their bones were later discovered,Hiding in plain sight,Ground up into the dust,Where they belonged. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TX7R-2VTBE&ab_channel=M83 🌪

Serious question—I have a housemate who's trying to break into my room,Do I phone the police? He's been knocking on my window and door for the last hour,And he keeps trying the door handle even though it's obviously locked, Usually, he's locked out of the house,So I have no idea why he's knocking on my … Continue reading Police Or Not?
I am pure existence,Merely slogging through an interstitionary phase,Extended and extended, as it's been,Through combinations of circumstances, Antidepressants help to keep me going,Stop me from going crazy,And allow me to do at least some things,Such as this,But it's a surreal time; The dosage will need increasing again,Once this one loses effectiveness,Like a life-jacket with a … Continue reading Existence
