I have no idea why I'm still here, seemingly as good as ever. Not that that is saying much. May as well say that smotlock is as subtle as ever.
There, I've mentioned smotlock. That should get me some hits.
My friend SassyGirl asked me today how I was doing. She did that head-tilting thing when she asked me which meant that she already knew the answer.
At least she thought that she did.
I dunno if I'm in denial here or what. It doesn't really feel that way. It feels more like I've given up, like this latest obstacle looming before me has finally caused me to accept that which I've been denying for a very long time.
This place where I'm at. That place where I long to be. There's no way to get there from here.
And, oddly enough, I'm okay. Obstacle after pitfall after trap after ambush have been placed before me, and until now I've always found a way to just go around, to just keep moving, to keep hoping.
And now, not so much.
I see before me a barrier that I'm unwilling to cross, and a part of me is relieved that I can finally stop this mindless quest. And, even if this respite turns out to be temporary, it's still a chance to rest, and that's something that I haven't had in a long time.
I told RockGirl today that I was waiting to die. Tonight, at least a part of me is waiting to live.
So, don't throw dirt over me just yet.
I'm still here. For now.
