What Have You Done

by wethedreamers

What have you done, my wayward love?

The weight of the cross you bear..

Is heavier; steadier, please be careful, for your burdens say "Handle with care."

What have you done? What did you do?

You know that I know that you knew.

To think love was easier for those with chances...

Imagine the love when it's doomed.

What have you done, what have you done?

The carelessness is working.

The crack in my voice when I repeated myself.

The break of courage, the fractured bravery, the hurting.

And what do we do now, my dear?

How do we cut through the dread?

Still head over heels for your sapphire eyes

But you would look to the skies instead.

To that of which will never be

Because, because, because...

The effort put in to pull asunder all our wonder..

Well, I wish you had spent that on us.

@wethedreamers I think your reply is worthy of publication.

@bernardtwindwil I always thought in the end, there's always two sides to everything and because of that, one cannot exist without the other. Yin and yang, yes and no, fire and water. The balance of the universe. So I've firmly believed that anything bad or terrible that happens to happen is to get us to embrace the good and wonderful. I don't think I'd treasure my happier moments if I never experienced depression. It completes things. There's this song called "Uneven Odds" by an artist named Sleeping At Last, and the last lyrics say, "Darkness exists to make light truly count."

@wethedreamers If we had no depression, we would have no measure for elation. Elation all the time becomes mundane.

@bernardtwindwil Oh, please do! I don't think you understand how comforting you are and how a complete post of things like this composed of your thoughts and advice would be beyond appreciated. I try to be humble. I try to ooze humility from my bones, but I guess in the process of making myself being aware of myself in such light, I become too self involved and it defeats my purpose? I don't know. It also could be the penchant I've always had for depression and how any type of mental illness is so relentlessly a selfish way of life that isn't really controllable, and when you're down on yourself anyway, it's hard not to take yourself with a grain of salt. It all seems like a hopeless cycle of trial and error.

@wethedreamers I don't know how to teach this. I know same of the steps along the way to an ability to detach. !. Humility, I do not mean being obsequious,. It is just the realization that you are not the center of the universe. Part of humility is being able to laugh at yourself when you do stupid things. Whenever I tell a joke, I always make myself the butt of the joke. Be willing to talk about your mistakes. Live your life in such a way that you have nothing to hide, This does not mean being a goody two shoes. It does mean that before you take any action, ask yourself what are the consequences to me and others? You eventually develop the ability to see yourself as a mind and a body. There is a great deal written on this in Hindi texts, Buddhist's texts, and Gnostic texts. Those are, thankfully, all on the internet now. It will help your creativity. Sit in a quiet place and imagine looking down on yourself. Perhaps I should write a post on this subject.

@bernardtwindwil How do you do that? It's always been nearly impossible for me to step outside of myself, especially in my writings. Any help or advice, particularly from you, would be wholeheartedly embraced.

@wethedreamers Fantastic. I want to nudge you into thinking outside your skull, into walking outside your shoes, and into feeling outside your heart. It is the only path to freedom I have found in my long life.

@bernardtwindwil "is" is and always has been and will be what isn't. If that makes any sense. It's hard to explain succinctly. But your interpretations mean the world to me. Thank you!

Agreed, but what is is? This was a nicely written refrain. You brought behavior into focus. "Saphire eyes" could be taken in many ways. That was a great turn of phrase. You write so frightfully of reltionships that I see more in failed relationships than I ever have. Great work.
