Do you have a glow in the dark watch ?

The week was spent trying to rationalize matters of the heart. Matters where Logic needn't apply. There are only so many wounds that can remain open, at any given time. I may be an expert at ripping out new ones, but even I know when to quit prying them open. The trick though, is figuring out how to quit, ensuring you don't rip out everything that is important to you. As I said, Logic needn't apply.

In other news, for those who keep count of such matters, what needed amputation, has been amputated. Intangibles have been converted, into what I hope, are tangibles. Many things have been discussed, from the nature of need in a relationship, to the facilities offered by a glow-in-the-dark watch.

It ends the same way the other begins. Always. With my foibles, stumbling around in the dark, feeling, poking, prodding. It's like making a joke out of life every time. My life. My excesses. My lack of knowing when and where to stop. My desperation.

Moderation, young grasshopper, is zen, said the young one, as she walked away, merrily chasing a butterfly.

Deep down, I've made myself believe there is no such thing as a matter where logic doesn't apply. It's just, we're too dumb to recognize it, at the moment.

Anyway, with that current state of affairs, I've also come to the conclusion, even if someone writes me an elaborate manual about such matters, there is a good chance I'm not going to read it (which self respecting person reads an instruction book anyway?) and go about scrounging around in the dark.

As far as I can see, randomly hurting one's self is about par for the course.

As much as one would like it to be, desperation is not spelt desparation.

Matters of the heart are tricky.The rules change, the ones who've been down that same road may be few,and there will never really be a formula.
But give it time
and remember that no-one makes it alone.

now, has anyone seen a polka-dotted butterfly around here??ANYONE??

Desperation is so important...it tell the other person that they are needed...and ifthey are desperate enough for you...make you feel needed in turn...
dont ever stop...dont stop being who you are...somewhere, in a little split second of light.. you will get what you want.

Vig, we ALL wish we were as wise as we think we should have been, when we dissect something in hindsight.

We NEVER are.

And that's what wisdom is all about :). My little bit of Zen for you there.

And if you're a hugs person, here's a virtual hug for ((you)).

I don't think I meant this post to sound as depressed as it came out. It was just very introspective. But thanks all for the hugs anyways ;)

W: Yeah, about par is just right.

W (again) : Heheh...

A: And I made time to read that, I really did ;)

Caffine: I don't know about that one, I have had a ton of people who would disagree... making you feel needed is one thing, desperation is quite another !!

Divya: Never, I shay !

eM: You know me, you really know me ! You know what brought on the introspection, now dont you ;)

Swathi: Lure me with a drink and I shall !! :))

Suma: Hrrmpff... IF I'm a hugs person it seems... as if you don't know !! ;)

The post only reflects your state of mind. You may try and hide it. You may try to blame it on artistic liscence. But the truth will remain - You don't have the glow in your dark watch.
