No Way

No WayThere’s just no stopping a speeding bullet

straight to the heart

With no clanking armour or a bullet-proof vest

so it rips you apart

There’s just no way to make it unscathed

through the day

with no love and no hope, no string to cling to,

No reason to stay

  1. I had a hole through me that I could have flown the Space Shuttle through,
    I didn’t date for 7 years.
    I was trapped in a whirlwind for about 24 years.
    But those days are gone, and I thought forgotten….

    • we never forget – we flow around things like a river, sometimes the water covers those rocks and smooths some of the edges off, other times the rock stays exposed and we just learn to flow around it hopefully…but it’s always there

      • Kait, as I think on this now, an odd thought occurred to me:
        At some point in time, I learned to flow uphill.
        I’m not saying this is any kind of answer, it simply describes how I beat the odds and am still on this earth today.
        When a person stops moving forward, they start dying. I stopped moving forward for at least 7 years; then, at best, I moved forward 2 steps and back 1 for a very long time.
        There are, possibly, people that regenerate, like the mythical hydra, and totally heal.
        I have been happy for many years, although I live on a roller-coaster, with extreme highs and severe lows, but that is just life.

      • That is profoundly true,Robert – I too spent time in a timeless place! A friend who lost her husband of 26 yrs said to me it was like she had been sleeping. It took her over ten years to be a part of the world again (only recently) but she is unfamiliar and timid of what is out there, in fact often doesn’t want to know….so I figure she’s in the two forward and one back stage! She is better than she was but like she says, she will never be who she was again. But you’re right – we cling on to the roller-coaster ride going up and down and around and around….and that is life…Blessings to you Robert – so glad you are teaching all who will listen to be better in spite of what has happened to them 🙂

      • Kait, I look back here now, over a year later, due to a like.
        I have one thing you really need to know: You are one heck of an empath, and I owe you more than you will ever know.
        Thank You Kait, for always being there,
        Robert

        PS- I am just on a slight downhill right now….
