Boa Constictor Logic

Sometimes my thoughts are dictated by some kind of boa-constrictor logic that coils, tightens and condenses into a rough diamond that needs to be painfully spat out. One of my first thoughts is more a fear – a fear of being born in reverse. Then denials, wishes, mistrust of distrusting people, malcontents and misconstruals.

Living is like pissing in a hurricane really – or having your foot stuck in a trap and enjoying the flavour. I’m stuck in a hole, and I don’t know if it will be deep enough. A chasm – endless, following the eternal bullet that penetrates forever. You can only fall so fast before you reach terminal velocity, then your speed remains constant. The rush disappears and homeostasis sets in like rot. Maybe if I nailed my heart to the wind and left it behind, I wouldn’t yearn for things so much.

    tried that.the wind ripped it from the tree and it’s STILL not fully repaired!There are things I yearn for,some things I will NEVER have,have had, and never will again.That’s painful,but there are many things I DO have, and many things I CAN have if I focus on what can be gained rather than what always seems to be out of reach or lost.
    Don’t you just hate it when you want to wallow and someone comes in with their BLAH BLAH BLAH! :) cheer up things REALLY can be worse.

    I think if you nailed your heart to the wind, it would create a hurricane in and of itself which would absolutely knock you off your feet also. So basically, you’re fucked either way. LOL

    I can’t tell you how much I relate to this right now. Thanks for sharing.
