untitled:

doctored thoughts tend my stricken soul
bloodstained art is what I like the best
broken lives nurturing welcome guests
a marble mansion not noticed except by you
I tell you one smile is worth a kiss in the rain
aboard a rudderless ship
manned by skeleton crew
who to the light
we wish a pleasant adieu.

@ReptileInYourHead

Hey, thanks for your comment friend.

Yeah, I get a little burst of inspiration to write a poem sometimes. It's kind of a challenge to myself to share from a deeper realm.

I'm going okay, thanks. Taking it a day at a time and just trying to stay positive. I'm through the darkest phase of my journey I believe, but the path is basically still a bumpy one. 😅

How have you been, Reptile?

Iím also hoping the worst part is over
Tumultuous times.
Iím glad youíre progressing
What was the hardest part of your journey mote?

I havnt written any poetry since the last one I posted here..there seems to be a real avoidance around it, but I feel it will pass soon.
Maybe itís why I came back, to share some things with folks I trust with my feelings

@ReptileInYourHead 👋👋

Yeah, I can definitely relate to the trust aspect of it. This site is pretty good like that I think, where people are a bit more sensitive towards others feelings generally. Not like some sites where every second comment is from a troll! 😂

I'm glad you might be through the worst part. It's certainly a hard journey respectively at times. Gosh, the worst part for me with my specific struggle was the mental anguish and torment, the hell, the depression, the hopelessness, day after day after day into years. And completely isolated and alienated within myself. I had to drink for relief (then I had to go to AA to stop drinking!) There wasn't a soul I believed I could trust: I nearly didn't make it, my friend.😔 But I clawed my way out over time. Doing better now. 👍 So that was the hardest part Reptile.

How are you coping in these covid times?

mote🙏

That sounds like a rough go!
I also used alcohol to round off the edges, for decades. It became not about the booze so much but about the feeling of not having any control over it, that I didnít have the power to refrain.
Covid didnít help with that either.
I just recently gave it up, along with some other things.
How was AA? Is it like in the movies?
Congratulations by the way, itís no easy feat.
Have you found new things that bring you pleasure?

@ReptileInYourHead

Hey thank you and congratulations as well Reptile.👍 Yeah, the bottle, for me, is like a mean spirited lover really, and will only ever take me so far. Best to ditch her in the end. 👍

Well I've utilised AA off and on since the late 90s and there's actually a lot more to it than you might see in the movies, heh. I found it extremely difficult to be there this time around though, because you have to put your trust in people which I'm almost bereft of now. But it did serve a purpose. That's all I can say about that.

As for pleasures? Brother, I think a person just has to find those things in life that bring them joy or purpose or a sense of growth within themselves. And obviously it's up to the individual to discover those things. I don't have a conventional view about this life but I tend toward a spiritual outlook for anything to make sense - to me. So that's it.

Anyway Reptile, it's been a real pleasure chatting with you but I'm going to leave it there now. Maybe we will see a poem emerge from you soon? That'd be cool.🙂

All the best brother, and fight on. Our spirits shall prevail in the end. 🙏🙏🙏
