Taking a break

I have some "house cleaning" to do.

I will *attempt* to avoid posting for a little while ... but will respond if I get a comment. - which isn't likely since I only have one LJ friend ... :) LOVE YOU Biscuit!

Upon my return ... operation LET IT ALL OUT will commence.

Random Exercise from jesus_h_biscuit

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the next seven sentences in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"Unlike swans,
Having no reflection;

Unlike you,
With no strings attached.
All cool, all blue. Unlike you -

You, there on your back,
Eyes to the sky..."

Look Away

Look Away

Constantly betrayed by the portal before me
Abhorrent images that refuse to loosen their grip on my preoccupation
Rotting from the inside and eating its way to the steel exterior
Looking for the acid rain to free it from the hidden places
So numb that it hardly arouses its own existence 

Trapped in the hidden places with only vague notions of sentiment
Intolerant of luminosity and lacking the vigor for passion
The fury of sound in raucous quiet
Disorderly and far too piercing for human ingestion
Look away, sweet apprentice, soothe your befuddled spirit

Lying in bed... my heart stops every time I hear the sirens.

Wondering... everytime the phone rings is it the WORST news?

Wondering how long it will take...

Wondering how many bridges we've burned...

Wondering if he'll ever love me the same...

Wondering if he'll love me better...

Wondering... if I'll ever fall asleep....

Knowing he is hurting...

Knowing I can't reach him...

Knowing no matter how far he runs... he'll take part of me with him.

Knowing I'll love him with all that I am, for as long as I am... no matter what.

I miss you, my precious son!
