On The Edges of Normalcy

On The Edges of Normalcy

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Ramblings of a tired mind.

"
What is love without trust,
I wondered throughout the day, as I heard 
the sound of my heart quietening;

the frost which had begun 
to melt, made its way back
through broken heart beats.

What is love without trust, 
I asked you, but silence rushed by, 
amidst heavy breaths, and 


we pretended, yet again, 
on the edges of normalcy.

I believe without trust. They is no love.

The above lines. Just living above water, waiting to drown. Thank you dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Very nicely put! Very lulling voice in this one the feeling of about stop comes across very true! Oh how I grapple with that dilemma so often!

Without trust love is doomed. It will die. This is a lovely write Dr Y, Trust is the foundation stone of a relationship. Once gone it may never recover, or if it does it will take much time to build up again. Your second paragraph beautifully expressed.

its fractured...and you spend a lifetime...deciding if the cut is worth picking up the good solid edges...or just leaving them on the floor to splinter more....mirrors are flawed...much like normalcy....trust is within you...not without you. Happy New Year Yumna!

hm interesting ruminations Doc! i like the edge of this happening ...very thick with emotions ... a whole slurry of guilt, deceit, unfaithfulness and deepening sadness knowing trust is gone ;(( ...... "quietening" is quite the word ..i like how its applied to the heart ... as if some other force is involved in it as well as your speaker ... and it forces me to come to a complete stop and savor each syllable ...qui et en ing :)))))
so sad and me heart goes out to your protagonist ... enjoyed second read through even better

You say these are ramblings of a tired mind, but look how beautifully they came out. I feel that I can relate your words and the feelings you have expressed here to recent situations and relationships of my own.
In the silence, issues floated away, dissolved, but not entirely forgotten. And in that time, normalcy took its place again...

No worries
A perceptive reflection on the uncertainties and confusions of life's encounters... What is love, indeed? More than heavy breaths for sure... but maybe trust is wide and embracing... trust in what? Trust in the moment? Trust that protects? Trust in the promptings of the heart?

You pose the question. I flounder in my answers. Life is so fragile.

Glad it made you think, Jibey. Thank you so much for your thoughts here. :)
This is the ultimate "show instead of tell" way to paint a word portrait of ambivalence. This is the story of my life, being a loner, wavering in my ability to trust people, wavering in my desire to let people in. The word "normalcy" is thought-provoking in this context (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
