a contradiction

i want to be alone


not be lonely

i want to open my heart


not open the door

i want to be loved


not be vulnerable

i want to love another


not be destroyed

i want to not think


cannot stop thinking

i want to feel nothing


all i do is feel

i want to feel better inside


cannot stop feeling bad

i want to disappear


go nowhere

    I feel like this a lot

      It is a pain in the butt. I have been reading your book – the poetry is so beautiful and romantic. It makes me think that it would be nice to find a special someone. A part of me wants to and another is so damned scared to try.

        You will know when you are ready. I believe you are far too young to be alone the rest of your life. I’m a romantic at heart and wish you all the love you deserve.

    Paradox Maybe you are far more in touch with this, yet many of us feel the same!!!! Today someone told me that by accepting, then things begin to change! 🙂 XXX Love

      Aha – the acceptance concept. Argh. I have heard of this :). I realize acceptance and letting go go hand in hand. I am better at acceptance then letting go. Until I can do both – equally – I am afraid I am living a paradox. 😉

        That is very interesting… most is life is a paradox. XX

    Powerful words. Incredibly so! Wouldn’t mind writing a post around your theme in those words over at my place – perhaps under the heading of ‘the more I know, the less I know!’

    This is a truly beautiful poem though filled with so much sadness.

      Thank you. Most of what I have been writing has been morose with the exception of Pee and the boys. They are my sunshine. xxx

    This post is beautifully poignant. You picked the perfect picture too. There have been times that I have felt each of these at one time or other in my five decades of living.
