Avoid

I flee my broken soul, in fear
Every moment and with every beat of my heart I’m running, running,running
The scariest monsters and bogeymen lurk in the dark chasms of me
They latch onto me like a second shadow
Like a cape, fluttering in the wind as I run away
My obsessions are my security blanket that I cling onto for safety
Anything that can knock me out cold and sway me away
Like driftwood bobbing in the calm sea, going everywhere yet nowhere
I gaze at the escapist fictions canopying overhead like twinkling, fading stars
Filling my mind,draining my heart.

Can you escape if you can never leave?

What exactly is personality?

Hearken ! You guys, I’ve fallen in love!


 

…with a book that is! Syke 😛

But seriously, I’m enthralled and completely taken with this book that has set my soul on fire; The Mind of the Soul: Responsible Choice by Gary Zukav and Linda Francis. I transcribed some excerpts from another book by the same authors; The Heart of the Soul. I hope I won’t be violating any Fair Usage policies, because I have a feeling I’ll be referencing these books A LOT! I kid not, I’m enamoured – complete with the butterflies and starry eyes. 😀

Without further ado, here’s my soulbook    😉

Anodyne

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”

Edgar Allan Poe
