It's Back...

Thursday, September 11, 2008

...I think I must have mentioned/wrote about it before. Its back, and dangerous, eating away and carving out hollows somewhere deep in yourself, but you don't exactly know where. What is frustrating is that it doesn't take much to make it reappear, and yet, sometimes, you feel as if you are made of the hardest stone, one that even the most furious of water can't whittle away, when it matters the most that you should feel the way you're feeling now. A book, a related tale, a real life story, happening to the people you didn't think you were that close to even though you know you should be, and it takes that much to realise that they actually are close to you. You were just the one who always pulled away.
Wandering around, hiding, glazing over things that you see, thinking, and yet, not thinking. Absorbing and not processing. Processing and not remembering. Moving on from what was important to something utterly not. 
473, of The Pact. A friend once told me people look for pieces of themselves in songs and books. A line, a paragraph, a verse, that they think can accurately describe what they are feeling, even though it may be the most abstract of phrases. I didn't think it was true until I started doing the same. The melodies and prose articulating what you yourself struggle to put your finger on, or what you yourself search for deep inside your soul, wondering if you'll ever find it, name it,  and if you do, would you have the guts to do anything about it?

That bit you mentioned about how people look for themselves in songs, stories, films or poems which convey their feelings better than they could, that's so true. Sometimes, I'm going through something new and I cant figure out what I'm feeling, and the defining moment came from the most random song or film that I came across. After that I think 'oh, other people have gone through this before', so I dont feel so lost and I feel that it's okay. I can move on. I think a feeling is not fully explored and will not have closure until it is expressed, whether in writing, verbally or in music, or visually. For me at least.

for describing the feelings right out of my mouth (although i might not have as much vocabulary in describing this)

~Meem, its true, sometimes you feel, not so alone in the world, but then again, sometimes those same words make you feel worse, now that you've identified them, its like with a name, they grew stronger.

~Jannah, its nice to know someone (real) feels the same way i do sometimes.

Thanks for dropping by, both of you!
