Barrier

There's this barrier
I can't explain it...

It makes it hard for me to accept compliments
It deflects love
It blocks my sense of inclusion

My soul feels plastic
My experiences feel second-hand
My life is comprehended, not lived

There's this barrier
Although I'm writing, I fail to grasp its nature...

It's made me into a love junkie
An attention glutton
An envy-driven lust demon

This barrier is loosening its grip
The Sun is finally warming my skin
The Love is connecting and sinking in

One day, I'll fuck life bareback...Once I find trust...


This beautiful photography is from Nectarios Karolos Papazacharias'


I'm still searching for the language
to describe where this art is taking me.
There is an underlying feeling I know all too well.

I'm curious what may have transpired that brought this poignant message. The pix are in perfect resonance to your words. Guess we will have to unwrap you deliciously.

@Reggie: Thank you, I am in love with this spread...

@TheGardenSage: You've unwrapped me rather thoroughly...Thanks to you, this "barrier" is coming down. I'm excited to live life raw...

This is indeed poignant!! I know the feeling all too well, my friend. Though my language might be different, the translation is still the same.

I think those of us who have the destiny to awaken to life must inevitably face this feeling and surmount it...oops forgot the site I was on, so let's say overcome it, lol.

@Thomas: Hahahaha! I know what "surmount" means! Thank you for our exchange last month, you've triggered some soul searching...

@Dayum:I appreciate you, Christo! Thank you for your insight..."Strong & Weak", I've never heard it put in that way...
