18 May LIfe in Flames
I say to my friend. I will catch you when you are falling. Then you will catch me. Then I will catch you. We will catch each other. We will hold each other. Without you in this world, I don’t really want to stay. I may want to vaporize without that type of love and support. Don’t tell me that I would be ok without it. I still have my attachments. Most of them burned up, but some I still keep. Yes, I (and we) am more resilient than hopefully I (and we) will ever have to know. But for now, I need these nourishing friendships to feed my soul. I need to see my beloved’s soft and fragile underbelly. I need to know you can stand in the fire with me. We will burn up together and we will emerge like the Phoenix and dance in this crazy, wild world.
