The Static On The Line

Friday, May 18th, 2012

After finding the website, I Wrote This For You dot me, I immediately bought the book, of course — titled after the website: I Wrote This For You by Pleasefindthis. And in it, I found some of the most beautiful, raw snippets of thought prose. One of the passages that stands out to me right now is titled, “The Static On The Line”. It says,

Don’t talk to me like you know me. Talk to me like you love me.

Incredible, eh? So, why not? Why don’t we talk to people like we love them, like we adore them? Why are we often harshest to those we are closest with? He writes about this on his blog too, in a post titled “The Closeness of Shadows” where he says,

You still believe you’re allowed to hurt the people who love you more than anyone else.

Why is that? =/ That is so sad. Let’s stop, shall we?

And definitely, read the book and the website.

I could have…

I could have written this myself… I did not but, I could have. It tastes like my words but I so rarely share my poetic side…

I found this place and love it. I wrote this for you

Clandestine pockets of people

There are some moments I feel so profoundly alone, even in the midst of many. I know I am not unique in this way, we all feel alone from time to time. It is frightening how isolated a moment can feel. How permanent. Even if we know time never stands still, moments can feel solid in a way words cannot capture. I have been feeling very lonely lately. And afraid of something, though it is not quite ready to be articulated, perhaps even to me, but it lingers right in my core. And knots me up in a disconcerting way.

In these cold moments I try to remember there must be clandestine pockets of people just like me all over the world. And it is my great fortune to have the adventure in life to find them.
