The gentle creeping warmth, hairs on their end, the distant hum.. where are we? The growing hum turns to deafening catastrophe, the kind that can only occur when the greatest of storms is upon you, or perhaps just the sound one would imagine that comes from the blood that is viciously forced through the body as calamity descends upon it, as a fearful heart prepares for the worst. Wiser men write of the pain which inevitably encompasses life, and the passing of time which allows us the strength, or maybe the experience to weather these storms. I imagine the oldest of souls don’t fear this progression, as they know the truth of it... all pain ends. It’s a strange thing, to condemn one’s self in the name of love. Furious, belligerent flailing of arms, writ with madness, solemn to be constrained in the name of love and healing. Wounds are wounds, sealed or open, forever to be remembered and revered for their sake. My dear madness, to be held so dear, as the forlorn child you are. I will watch you grow into something beautiful. The selfish child will take anything for the sake of self, even to forsake others. But, to be willing to give it all, for something beyond that. What would that say about him? Then would he be granted a place among them? To believe in something more beautiful, to not lose or be lost, to walk together again. The deafening hum falls to a quiet whisper, again the falling rain fades back into being as he returns from this place of could have been and never was. He does not lose hope. Maybe tomorrow, he thinks to himself...
