Blogophilia 52.6 Follow Your Bliss

"Bliss" by Tori Amos

Father, I killed my monkey
I let it out to
Taste the sweet of spring
Wonder if I will wander out
Test my tether to
See if I'm still free
From you

Steady as it comes
Right down
To you
I've said it all
So maybe we're a Bliss
Of another kind

Lately, I’m in to circuitry
What it means to be
Made of you but not enough for you
And I wonder if
You can bilocate is that
What I taste
Your supernova juice
You know it's true I’m part of you

Steady as it comes
Right down
To you
I've said it all
So maybe we're a Bliss
Of another kind

Steady as it comes
Right down to you
I've said it all
So maybe you've a four horse engine
With a power drive
A hot kachina who wants into mine
Take it with your terracide

Steady as it comes
Right down
To you
I've said it all
I said a Bliss

Of another kind

Most of you know what is going on in my life at the moment so I'll spare you the details, suffice it to say that it's only by the support of awesome people that I'm hanging on.  I had to get out now from a lifestyle that was killing me......and now I'm learning how to follow a bliss of another kind.

  3. I love that you're sharing your actual self inside and now outside with us. ❤️
    Your words are both soothing and painful for me to read. I know your pain and I feel it, but I also hear your guarded hope. I believe, Steven, I can't explain why, but I believe in you and this is your time. We've got this. All of us, all of your friends and you with all of your desire to be more. Yep, we've got this. (((Steve))))

  7. There came a day when I had to follow a different bliss too. Turns out it was an awesome choice to do so...hard ..but everyday was a journey toward the unknown. Much better because we know the other bliss wasnt leading any where good. Next time how bout a 2014 one? Do I need to plan a trip for a photo session :)

  9. Killing the monkey is a time consuming process. Each word squeezes the garrot tighter. Keep going.
