secrets @ 01:17 am


I don't like secrets
and I don't like lies

they wear me out

I feel they are both necessary in this world
it perpetuates it
but that's part of what we're doing here: keeping the wheel spinning
and we're all expected to play along

I once prided myself in keeping no secrets
now I feel it increasingly necessary to have them
and am often pressured and frustrated by the need
but because of that I have been writing every day on here this year as "private"
so only I can write it
so I don't have to write around any topics
and I don't have to change or avoid any names
and I don't need to be polite or nice

the writing has always been more important to do than to have it read
as far as I know

but I miss singing into the wind

I'm trying to figure out how to make more interesting creations to share

maybe I will someday


love ya
I'm going to sleep now

I totally believe in the transformative power of the written word. And although the act of writing can be a spiritual experience for the author . . .there's this even deeper feeling of connection when the work is published - however privately. Sending a piece out into the universe means there's a chance that another soul will read it and understand it . . .and then maybe we aren't alone. Most of the time I know what I write won't be found, but I send it out and hope that it is. And when someone does reach through time and space to say - I got that, or I've experienced that - I feel a profound connection to humanity that I tried to make myself believe I didn't want, because I didn't believe I could have it. I need to write to live. Why do you?
