The Whispering At The Back









You say the things you don't need to say.

Because it hurts when you don't say them.

It does, so much.

But I'm scared I'll make a fool of myself if I do. Sigh.

If only things were simpler.

Well, the only choices are words or silence (and the mildly Wittgensteinian part of me is usually okay with the words, even though sometimes they are wildly inadequate).

Perhaps we don't speak because there is more said inside of a whimsical kiss or fingertips across the lines of a neck than in saying something.

Perhaps we don't speak because there is no sound but God.

Perhaps we don't speak because we are learning how to fall back into our primal states of feeling through touching and experiencing and trusting and diving head first into the tiger's mouth.

Perhaps we don't speak because there is more conversation that exists between the stars that connect two people together and making noises with our mouths never seems like the adequate approach when in love.

Perhaps we don't speak because when we have people like you in this world, there's nothing left to do but cover our mouths in awe, and just breathe you in like starlight.

love,
k.

I say them, because someone needs to say them. I say them, because they have been unsaid for so long, I fear that they will fade away into eternity unsaid. I say them, because I love you.

you're so right, these things need to be said.
if you don't, you'll be forced to carry them around with you wherever you go.
you need to let the words go, before you can let it all go; everything else.

(this seems so similar to a conversation i was having with a close friend today. crazy.)

i guess we're all a masochist even when we won't admit it.

YThanks, you're absolutely right.

Sometimes I say the things I shouldn't or don't need to say because it hurts not to be true to myself and not to express my interest or honest opinion about the status quo.

Please tell me, why doesn't this get any easier?

I feel like this relates to most of the things I say to certain people.

And even though it may make me seem like a bad person because I DO say these things, I don't care. Because they need to be said.

But sometimes I say these things in other ways...ways that you don't seem to understand or realize. Or maybe it's just because you don't care anymore. Either way, I'm still saying them...whether you're ready for it, whether you accept it, or whether you feel the same way.

I have been commenting your blog many times as "anonymous" because I was too afraid to say that I fell in love, made mistakes, got hurt, and can't seem to move on.

But I'm going to be who I am and say what I want because it definitely hurts a lot less.

So true. So true.

This is how I feel every single day. You always seem to figure out how to (beautifully) say the things I can't quite put into words.

I kind of wish he'd never said it though.

I think it will always hurt for me.I will never say the words.

My boyfriend (who is now my ex) and I broke up last night due to the fact that he's leaving in 3 months.

I didn't really understand this entry until now.
