Undone drafts, again

Me sitting down in this room trying to write this piece is Dunkirk on wheels. The ticks and tocks of life going slow-motion and clockwise rotating beyond the control of mere clockhands, slowly spinning, spiralling, perhaps, out of grasp. I will never find solace for tonight's manic episodes, and I fear for the days beyond tomorrow; where I will end up, in what state would I be in, or how the game plays out, etc. The game with which plays over and over in my head. The game with which there is no winning nor losing. I will never know the truth, and probably it is best for me to keep these thoughts to myself. I have been in the past guilty of so many mistaken intuitions.

The sky is darkening. No stars in the sky could mean rain, and that thought scares me so. The same rain that drenched my flesh from within the hedge I had taken for myself not too long ago. The same hedge from where I waited, and waited, and waited, and waited some more, for a miracle to happen. What if the miracle had already reached its verdict, free from the prejudice of the self, and its end, measured strictly by the constraint of our emotions, but a moment away from now? My fingers stir, my nerves burn, my heart sinks, my eyes blur. Every moment feels as heavy a destructive force with each step. Beyond the sanctity of my space, from the door to the outside, are frightful complications of things or matters that I would rather not associate myself with. The difficulty now rests with the challenges that stand across me, those that trouble my thoughts, boxing with my sanity, thinking of how to approach such anomaly if minute by minute my innards are stretched apart by the anxiety of the possibility that this truly is the end of the road and the miracle that I had waited for for so long is dying or already dead. As if I still could stand up for myself. Standing up for myself was what got me into this mischief at the first place. That stubborn, retarded side of me that never fails to impress my more rational and softer side, the part of me which is overpowered by what I truly feel like wanting, knowing that it [the overpowering side] has already failed me not just once, but of countless times since the beginning of the trials.

For so long I had been disturbed by a single scenario in my life that I could not redo even if I tried. Something that has moulded this version of me now that is consumed by the idea of a love so strong that that should be the only highlight of one's existence if it ever grazes us in our lives. Or so I thought. Until that scenario in my life with which I spoke about. Love, in all its glory, is such an overbearingly overrated piece of bullshit pie. A concept similar to sex that one cannot live without, but only in short bursts. Once you have ejaculated the jizz out, the craving turns to indifference, and from indifference to disgust, and would rather wash yourself of it once the deed is done. But that is not all that comes out of the desire or longing for love or sex. There can be something else more magical. The ability to life. The ability from where all men come from.

And then...

Four hours and ticking and I cannot seem to be copacetic to the privacy of her suspicious absence. How could I be when frightening tremors had shook their country just earlier today? It has been quite common to read about earthquakes rocking Italy recently, and the more these events take place, the more people feel less surprised about the fatalities. At the moment, I can sit on this chair being bothered by Starbucks personnel every half an hour or so, waiting for updates of Miriam's whereabouts. Surely she would be safe. I suppose my fears always come back to bite me in my arse. This is a farcry from mine fears. Far be it from the truth, I will not let it tear me asunder. She will be back to me soon enough, and then it would not take long before she will be in my arms, singing praises of our love, beneath the starry sky and our duvet. There is this unusual feeling of dread knowing that tomorrow I will be once again immersed into a job that I do not love; a return to form; of bei…

Strange Fruit

I had recently adorned a vow of silence for myself with Miriam for no apparent reason whatsoever other than to suit my whim, and, regardless of the pettiness associated with this misdemeanour, I pray this will only strengthen us both in spirit for the coming days. The coming days are definitely not meant for one such as me.
In the next few hours, not shortly before I am done with this piece, this vow will be disavowed. Miriam is sleeping soundly in my right, broken by the exhaustion that seemed to catch her unaware. This was not what she had prepared for when coming to London. This was not what I meant for her when I asked her to come. In order to alleviate the guilt of me making it more difficult for us both, I do what it is that I do best, and that is to love her hungrily and wildly. And some little bit of swag on the side to cure her state of frustration albeit temporarily.
My days are long and yet wields very little. For now I do and take whatever I can, whenever I can. A grand f…

Decide my fate for me

As though the wind may pass with golden steps from shallow graves, the warmth of her hands could not defeat January weather in England, proving that tests of fate weigh heavier than the insidious intentions of a warring tribe. Perhaps it is high time I engage in other methods more worthy of personal consideration. She left me in the cold when my reality cloaked in malady was in full motion, sweating icicles in the interior, punching my guts in gutsy ups and gutsy downs. She was my meaning. She is my void.
