Emotions

Emotions are like a roller coaster. Every day it is the same. Like playing the "he loves, he loves me not" daisy game and getting different results each time. Maybe one of these days I'll have the courage to crush the daisy, step on it, and never pick one up again.

The Chains of Bondage

I am unable to sleep. I welcome sleep, I invite it in, I almost beg for it but it does not come. Why does it elude me? It is only when I sleep that I find rest for my soul. My soul is thirsting for something, it tortures me day and night. I try to calm it. I give it offerings but it does not take them. I try to console it but it is not consolation that it asks for. It is restless, always seeking. It keeps asking me for what it wants and it does not budge, it struts in defiance whenever I try to appease it. I have become afraid of it, I cower in its presence. It works with my heart against me. They both keep me in bondage. I want to break free or do I? I look at my chains in contemplation, with a feeling of resignation within me. I am not fighting anymore. I am tired. I am quiet. I am still.

Losing

I lost at my own game. I broke my own rules. I wasn't supposed to fall in love with you. You were there for when I needed you, the way I am here now only for when you need me.

A Short Goodbye to Lust

Taking the leap of faith again into a new beginning. One where you don't exist. You had taken it once and failed. You tried to move on but couldn't. I have not tried and therefore I cannot say I have failed. I'm one to hold on for way too long but once I let go, I let go. I am indecisive but when I do make a decision its definitive, therefore; everyone is fucked, you, me, us. Goodbye my dear friend, my passionate lover,  my lustful adventurer. It was hot, sexy, fun, and at the end hurtful and true. This is for the truth we lived, the truth we shared, and the truth I now leave behind. I will miss our zealous and fervent nights together. The ones were caution was thrown out the window and we were ruled by lust, by wanting and receiving but never having enough. We are now sated, we have reached our limit, and even if our lecherousness for each other rises again our regrets, anger, and resentment will overpower it. Good bye my dear lover, goodbye.

A fun read. I was able to identify with some of the six-word memoirs, some made me raise my eyebrows, a few made me laugh, while others made me nod my head in agreement. I found it a very interesting concept, summarizing your love life and heartbreaks into six words. Made me wonder what choice of words I would use if I was to write a six-word memoir.

I have heard very good reviews about this book from a special person who recommended this book to me and although I have had it in my personal book collection for a good while and even began reading it once, I never put much attention to it. I finally dusted it off and will begin reading it today. I admit I got interested in this book again after seeing Rick Warren give a TEDtalk. I was intrigued by his way of interpreting certain passages of the Bible and his ability to apply those passages to our everyday life. I have high expectations for this book and I hope I will not be disappointed. 
I picked this up at the library a few days ago and decided to read a few paragraphs to see if it caught my attention. A few pages in and I realized I could not put it down, very good introduction to the characters and storyline. I have a feeling this one will become a favorite...
