Don’t let me lose my faith.

"Someone once asked, “If you could take it all back, would you?”
At the time I didn’t know. Now I do. I wouldn’t take that terrible experience back for anything in the world. Too much light has come out of my darkness."

     “I used to manage Ravi Shankar, and his daughter Norah Jones is playing here tonight. They told me that the show is sold out, so I thought, If I just hang around, somebody’s going to show up with an extra ticket.     So I was just thinking about my life philosophy: I never really take ‘no’ for an answer, and I trust my luck. I’ve travelled all over the world this way. I have no doubt that I’m going to find a ticket somehow, even though I don’t know how.”

"Right after I lost vision in my eye, I was so bad at walking that I ran into a girl eating ice cream, and knocked her cone out of her hand. She screamed: ‘Are you blind!?!?’ I turned to her and said: ‘I am blind actually, I’m so sorry, I’ll buy you a new cone.’ And she said: ‘Oh my God! I’m so sorry! Don’t worry! It’s no problem at all! I’ll buy another one.’ So we walked into the ice cream store together, and the clerk said: ‘I heard the whole thing. Ice cream is free.’"

with shaking hands

I.

I don’t know what it is about 

warm beads rolling down my cheek

that automatically

pulls down the corners of my mouth.

How hot skin can feel just like

the buzz 

from a few sip’s worth

of wine. 

Only this buzz, my head is heavy, 

my body weak, and ready to collapse

and any word fighting to make it’s way

into the light

is stuffed back down to

the darkness it came from.

So I sob quietly, trying to stop,

but tears keep slipping.

II. 

It’s not what you said,

it’s how the words were sloppily 

thrown at me

that hit me hardest.

III.

Smoke,

and tears,

mistake after mistake,

and people;

people

yelling at you,

warning you,

from the shoulder

as you speed by,

blind to the end of the road ahead.

So we stand quietly, 

and pretend not to see

the scars that you gave us.

IV.

Then there’s the truth.

and it strikes with sharpness.

Those tiny little shards of glass

cut, ever so subtly, 

but nonetheless,

pain trickles out.

The verdict:

Illness.

*I wrote this in about 8 minutes and couldn’t see half of it because tears make things really cloudy, so here it is.*

Things about my life lately
  • My extended family is really loud, and I’m not. oddball 
  • Family drama and unresolved things suck.
  • I’ve had really vivid, detailed strings of dreams with a common theme. I don’t usually remember very many dreams, but when I do they seem to be important.
  • I learned to drive a stick shift, but as usual, I lack confidence in my abilities. So, terrified and stressed and frustrated driver.
  • My vision is getting fuzzy and I need to see an eye doctor. 
  • When I get frustrated, I cry.
  • I have cried a lot over the past week.
  • I think I’m mad at God
  • My future is stressing me out.
  • Maybe I should start by turning in all the homework I had due a month ago. (which also happens to be stressing me out)
  • boys.
