Follow me To All Depths, my journey to accept each emotion that makes me a full being. Look out for bi-weekly developments, each grazing a depth of the human experience.
What makes some emotions acceptable–allowed to drift with us through the day, analogous or parallel (hence unthreatening) to our identity, while others are rejected with an assured, knee-jerk intensity?
A Collection on Insecurity.
A Bowl for My Tears—a poem by moi
I need a bowl for my tears
Fill it up for you
Drink. Consecrate my importance
Then your mouth will be full rich salty dense as mine is.
Your eyes should offer me something now.
Fill a bowl with your tears
Let them mingle gently as they drop, casting ripples out across mine
Understand me. (Show me you can breathe water)
Breathe Me–Excerpt from “Breathe Me” by Sia
Be my friend
Wrap me up
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me
Weightless—Excerpt from “Weightless” by City and Colour
Lay next to me
I need to tell you something important
So stay close,
Remain next to me
I need to feel important
Holding all the weight in my life
Then you turn and you walk away from me
Many moments are tinged by insecurity. We can’t always feel safe.
Pretend you are a chair.
Suddenly, one of your legs is kicked out from under so abruptly you don’t even notice; you only notice that everything is terribly, terribly slanted.
