We don’t make eye contact anymore.
I ask; you’re FINE!
And all your venom is reserved for me,
it’s mine. Something I said?
If your demeanor was any meaner
I’d be pushing up daisies instead.
Call me crazy, but you never
baulk at talking until you I enter.
A text on my phone emotes more
than you stealing moments of silence
from my vacant stare. Are you still there?
What we have here…is a failure…

Patience can lead to salvation or it can lead to disaster. Every inaction or every action is open to all the possibilities!

You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation…and that is called loving.
Well then, love your suffering.
Do not resist it, do not flee from it.
It is only your aversion to it that hurts, nothing else.
“Balance. It was all about balance. That had been one of the first things that she had learned: the centre of the seesaw has neither up nor down, but upness and downness flow through it while it remains unmoved. You had to be the centre of the seesaw so the pain flowed through you, not into you. It was very hard. But she could do it!”
― Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight
In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
