I don't think this

when in every breath drawn
life escapes us to still memories
in a box in the closet
until light has been quietly dried and shriveled
and disappeared

if nothing you say scares me
if nothing I say scares me

Such odds always exist.
beautifully narrated :)


Small is many a time beautiful. Nice posting.

I've experienced so much in this life that so few things shock or scare me anymore. But some things do piss me off and some things make me laugh really hard. Sometimes these get all mixed up and I don't know which is which..but I do know that it's a very rare thing to upset me. How about you?

thanks all forthe comments :)
yes, i get annoyed sometimes but being really mad and acting out is not my thing. i feel like a member of the mild tribe that once in a while loses it but not violently.
I wonder how the leaders in the past who had conspiracy theory issues dealt differently with leaders who just understood there really were people plotting and trying to kill them. So many things we just cant know so we can try to not assume anything but that isnt how the mind works.
people arent always acting in polar opposite ways all the time so the mind tries to figure things out

This post made me do a double-take.
Nicely articulated River. However, I always expected that.

If only nothing could scare us.
