Comfortably Numb

(image source)

This is not a good way to start the year or even start a blog, but I will.

I have been in a state of stupor (much as I can describe it) for about a year now and I can’t seem to shake the feeling. I just want to share the powerful words below (and equally great song from a great band) which pretty much sums all things up, most specially the underlined/blocked stanza. I hope and pray to the gods to pull me out of this mess and let me move on…

Wither

(Music: Dream Theater Lyrics: John Petrucci)

Let it out, let it out

Feel the empty space
So insecure
Find the words
And let it out

Staring down, staring down
Nothing comes to mind
Find the place
Turn the water into wine

But I feel I’m getting nowhere
And I’ll never see the end

So I wither
And render myself helpless
I give in
And everything is clear
I breakdown
And let the story guide me

Turn it on
Turn it on
Let the feelings flow
Close your eyes
See the ones you used to know

Open up open up
Don’t struggle to relate
Lure it out
Help the memory escape
Still this barrenness consumes me
And I feel like giving up

So I wither
And render myself helpless
I give in
And everything is clear
I breakdown
And let the story guide me

I wither
And give myself away

Like reflections on the page
The world’s what you create

I drown in hesitation
My words come crashing down
And all my best creations
Burning to the ground
The thought of starting over
Leaves me paralyzed

Tear it out again
Another one that got away

I wither
And render myself helpless
I give in
And everything is clear

I wither
And render myself helpless
I give in
And everything is clear
I breakdown
And let the story guide me
I wither
And give myself away

Like reflections on the page
The world’s what you create
