Chaotic Fulfillment

Her palace of illusions had been witnessing bouts of reality. She washed her head of all the mess and set off towards her chaotic fulfilment. All the others had come away unbidden, but Shoe had found a way in. A “sue” in the beginning and a “shoe” in the end. Oh and a “darn” in the middle. The messy long name, which sounded perfect. Perfectly stupid, perfectly sweet, perfectly perfect and perfectly adorable man... She had been talking about an ambulance a while ago and it seemed to have arrived, at least the time stood still and the wounds were being sealed, whether they would heal forever or not. Help came from the most unexpected quarter and it lingers in the air above. The heart actually jumped with joy than nag with worry and confusion. She felt like she was falling and this time the feeling of falling was eerily more assuring than scary.

'sealed wounds' work for me... highly escapist i agree but very effective; but only if you commit to go back and unwrap those wounds, examine them, feel some of that pain and try decipher life lessons afresh. the wounds may be getting sealed but you need to know if and when you want the healing to start.

Also,sometimes we never know but we fall/arent scared to fall coz someone will be there to catch us. toh kya aapki fielding set hai?

Vib, I really like what you have written, wonder why you ever stopped. One has to learn the lessons before one moves on. I think I have examined, and I am ready to seal them. I guess we are always ready for healing. The fielding, not so sure, but I am hoping to be caught :)

Now u're talkin.. Ambulance does come. And it does when u call for it. Knock the door, and the door will open. Be grateful that u were welcomed even before you knocked. Congrats, that the door is opened, and that u chose to step in. Atleast u're adventurous enough to know whats inside, rather bein scared. Keep writin stuff like this. U know me.. These things make more sense to me than your usuals.
And the point to be told, i'm happy that i've started to know and understand u more, atleast with what the third person is sayin. I got each and every word u wrote there bean bag..

i love obscure writing. it leaves a lot for the reader to guess and at the same time connect with the writer :-)!

A very interesting blog and you have a way with words.

This post reminds me of a person who has regained enough strength to take the plunge into the valley of love one more time.
