Naked Ramblings of a Drunken Sphinx

Naked Ramblings of a Drunken Sphinx

A Story by transentience

It's true, we all assume what's read between the here's and then's, reconfigure our perspective to simulate what must fit in, you know, the fears we feed to justify our paranoia-fueled stereotypes--preconceieved--as we deceive (ourselves?). Surely, somewhere down the line, we humble ourselves in light of discovering the darkness wherein our own ignorance hides (usually snickering from behind and tiptoeing from within our shadows), right? Well if I could tell you what you want to hear--tickle your bubbly belly and make you feel warm and safe instead of spinning this gonzo-crazed idiosyncratic maze of words that force you to say "Who the where and what the hell do you do?", to prompt my response "Why do I feel everything too much all the time?!"--I'd whisper it all into your ear and you'd probably get a little wet. But we haven't even done coffee yet, and no one ever tells me s**t, so feast upon the emotions you abandoned in wha t ever form they manifest in and maybe, one day, you'll change your mind. Until then just try and find yourself through the abandoned tears in your past lifes' eyes. You'll probably find them in worn and weathered mirrors, lost within a turbulent time. Remember that the rivers run through valleys because they traced the arcs of prismatic light to guide, in dark, the ways in which the Earths decompressing veins branched out like lightning through stormy clouds and adrenaline in a heart-sleeved, skyward vessel. And if its elating to know, every time I pray you never cease to cross my mind...But I guess that, at the end of this, what I'm really trying to say is I'm just grateful to be alive. div>

universal until the last line ..on the universal; nothing stays hidden does it?! no matter how hard we try...those black marks and poor grades pop out somehow ;( I suppose other than facing them head on ..we can continue to board up that dangerous, dark care and really get sick eh!? it would be nice to think your speaker prays for all everytime (I will take it) but it reads more personal to lost love ..with your hero healed and moving on .. glad for the breath of the day reading ..start to finish ...inspires me own gratitude this morning

A positive rant leading up to that last line. Now there's a thing! Inscrutable.

the line "so feast upon the emotions you abandoned in whatever form they manifest in" stuck out to me as really powerful and something i relate to personally. I'm not going to pretend to understand everything, but I love the tone of your story. For seem reason the syntax reminds me of Solipsist by Henry Rollins
