iF... So...

Hers is a tough act to follow.  But I follow anyway.  Because I don't know any better.  Or perhaps, because I know better.  Than to sit down, curl up, give in.  "If she can do it, so can I", I tell myself.  And I often wonder, what drives me, what drives the people around me?  And the necessary corollary, what stops them?  What stops me?

If I can do it, so must I.

Meltdowns happen to remind us that we are fragile. That our soul needs a moment to heave and sigh and gather herself again. That life and love and laughter are not enough to carry us through. That there are many straws that break the camel's back.

Meltdowns happen to remind us of our humanity.

Sometimes the best thing we can do, is to not do anything.

And I slowly discover, grief is like snowflakes, no two are alike.

sO dEliRiuM

So dEliRiuM mourns
for the passing of friends known and unknown
So dEliRiuM weeps
for the night time terrors that haunt the sleep
So dEliRiuM sighs
for the mask and constant white lies

So dEliRiuM forgets
that she never forgets

For some inexplicable reason, the death of Amy Winehouse has unleashed a torrent of emotions in me. Now, I don't know Amy Winehouse personally, don't own any of her music, probably won't even recognise her songs if you played them to me. But to know of yet another young life vanquished by a tormented mind hurts me. It reminds me. It reminds me of people and places and emotions so raw they have no name.

It has been too long. Their stories need to be told too.

Sometimes I think acceptance is just another form of forgetting.
