something different

something different

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

inspired by the song

"
pastimes

banging heads
against walls
isn't my favourite
pastime.

the more you
tell me
the more
I try

the more
something
inside me
dies.

================================================================================

mind tricks

you have tricked yourself
into believing I won't go
because I care.
but that is
precisely
why
I wonder
if I should
stay


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
in that moment you let your guard down I forget every doubt.
when you put it back up again, I double down.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
demons don't like to die

beating back her demons
with a rubbery stick
equilibrium is on the edge
of an unestablished continuum
of what might be.

This is one of those situations that can become to enticing yet also have disastrous consequences. There is nothing like the feeling of attraction towards something that you know it is "good" for you or "healthy" or ultimately productive. But will we stop, no way because it so much fun that we will gladly continue. Warnings or recommendations will mean nothing if the experience is not lived and metabolised. Staring at the demons face to face then and embrace them.

Thankyou

I think in this case you know exactly what you need to do.
Knowing and following through though, are not one and the same.
Most people back down when push comes to shove, but the courage builds over time, or until something snaps and we just go nuts. :) You and Rene should get together and head bang. Throw Rob in there too.
:D

Interesting how folk interpret stuff, don't you think? A great write broken into four parts that whilst intrinsically linked may also be considered individually...Goode on yer.......

One might also be encouraged to consider less emotive stuff, don't you think N

Interesting collection of pieces that portrays anger and hurt and fear and determination to fight back!

Spending entirely too much time making futile phone calls and following up on useless advice.
