Sometimes I feel farther away than I've ever been, and then I think to myself, self, you've never felt close to where you've been. If your own brain can make you feel like you're sailing the ocean on a brittle piece of ice, then what hope do you have for ever feeling sound with another person?

The highs and lows. The highs and lows.

In my world the most peaceful thing out there is water. It will cure what ails you. Period. I often think of myself, on the verge of scream crying, shaking to the core, unable to support my own body weight, and all it takes is falling into the ocean to feel at peace with the world again.

A world that goes momentarily silent.

Momentary silence.

My brother is 34. He may not make it to 35. He may not make it to 36. He may not make it so on and so on. I wish I could walk into the ocean with him. We'd close our eyes, we'd fall backwards, and all our problems would float away. The ocean would cleanse him. The ocean would cleanse us.

My stomach is full and my head is hitting the ground. I want to empty it out. All of it. I want to puke up his cancer. I want to puke up my frustration. I want to puke up the stress my family packs with them everyday.

7:00 am

William Shatner singing a newly conceived rendition of "Take My Breath Away."

I wake up, snuggle Doc, talk to Brad, scratch the cat, stretch, then hear Take My Breath Away breeze through my head and smile. Cheapest entertainment there is.

Some people say your front teeth are 9% of the outfit.

Wait for the routine

I live in an english speaking city with millions of people and yet at this moment, I feel depressingly alienated.

Going home and coming home is hard to do.

Dream it up Chris, I'm about to.

You - What is that?

Me - A description.

Y - Of what?

M - Someone I tried to love for a very long time.

Oh you.

Sometimes days are rough and even though you know you have a charmed life, you want to complain about the inconveniences. Then you're in the kitchen washing dishes and your boyfriend is drying and your dog is lying at your feet and your cat is sitting as close to the dog as she's ever dared and you realize you have a nice little family and everything feels alright again.
