Questions

Reactions: 
What's the best time to turn to alcohol? What's the best time get addicted? Does returning from the edge of temptation guarantee salvation? Does giving in to tempation numb you from the spears that stand as flags at the summit of your pain? Do dead ends give you license to thump your chest, pull your hair out and run out naked in the streets under the protection of insane laughter?

How come at every new bottom you see a new one lurking far below you? How come one always chants one's curses but never counts one's blessings? Why are plans and obstacles conjoined twins? Why do our muscles and joints have to be the voice of our stress?

How does a rebel start conforming? How does nothing become worth living for except life? How does nothing stay worth dying for? How does routine safeguard the shell that it hollows? When does a heart substitute passion with blood? Why does the mirror stare at empty eyes filled with empty tears?

How does one stop laughing? How does one lose hope?

  3. You are possibly feeling emotions we cannot understand, the post is sublime, and I wish I could talk to you.

    How does one stop laughing indeed.

  5. After every new lowest bottom lies another climb which takes you to a new high slightly above the last. Every set of questions for which we cant find answers have answers but they come with time often when you are not actively thinking about them. The screwed up thing is that there are always questions when what you need most are answers. Life!
