The Waiting Chair

If it hurts you, if not being who you want to be kills you inside, just close your eyes and remember

"Somewhere else, I'm something else.

Somewhere else, I'm something else."

And soon you will be here.

Soon, you will be you.

Close your eyes and imagine what you could do to become who you want to be.

Open them, take a deep breath and try.

The only way to overcome your fear is to go trough it.

You are afraid of your own greatness.

"Special has been a disconcerting experience lately. I am no more a fan or I could be lying to myself.

But really, I don’t anymore yearn to be the love of your life or your love, anyway. I could do away without killing myself over it and killing you…for it? I want to be me, someone you’d rather not kiss on the lips, but strip naked with your eyes and take to bed. Just for the heck of it. Just for the touch, and the fire, and the orgasms that follow.

Nothing less, nothing more; and I would still say I love you." -riddleinninesyables

it's taken me a long time to get to where i am; to molt and transform. i thought it may never happen so i'm impressed, comforted in fact. it's the miracle i've been praying for all along.

Following this advice seems like an awesome recipe for perpetual masturbation/mediocrity.

Your thoughts are incidental. You break free from the chains by taking action, not by fantasizing.

Your words are so beautiful. Thank you (:

Perfect.

I live in a foreign land and can't speak the language well enough... yet. People make fun of my accent and don't take me seriously... yet.

The waiting chair reminds me there once was a place where I could speak with alacrity and was understood.

And some day it will be the same here.

Its been said before and it will be said again.
The way you make letters form words that turn into sentences, that resonates through every being that reads them, it is beyond beautiful. You make it easier and harder to breathe, reminding us we are alive.
Please do not ever be silenced.
This, these words were meant to be spoken.

It hurts me, but somewhere else I'm not me and somewhere else you're not you. Somewhere else you wouldn't write comforting words. I'd rather hurt than nothing at all.
