pulling and proding emotion senses
breaking and rebuilding untamed messes
gluing back together the pieces
and untamed wishes
clogging light from within the shadows
origami fantasy garden in all creases
Being a human is pretty difficult. And yet, as time goes on, the oddities of what it means to be human are getting more perplex.
I read in the news today 「人を殺してみたかった」 A young woman was quoted saying she "wanted to try killing people"... (in which she indeed succeed in this) in Japan this happened.
My initial reaction was simple, 「怖い」って言った。I said "scary". That's it. Nothing more. Frankly, it reminded me of a new アニメ (anime) I'm watching called Tokyo Ghoul. I've had more explosive reactions to things occurring in anime than I had to a real story.
The intensity, that is, that one sentence can harbor. The intensity, that is, that one life can harbor.
I think somewhere down the line, humans have been tainted. I can only wonder when that turning point was.
We are curious creatures. It's only fitting to want to try things that outreach our edges. Regardless of the consequences. Those lines don't exist sometimes --rather-- they are ignored.
They tell us to push ourselves to the limits, but then retract such words if those limits pushed are not in the vague understanding of "what is right".
Telling children to let it go and be yourself, but are shunned for such acts of bravery. Or punished if it's outside the lines of normalcy.
How terrible. This world is killing us. Not all of us, but us. The darkened us. The shadowed us. The rejected us.
I find it rather hard to believe that (our) society is like this. When will the breaking point be? Will the anonymous reveal themselves, or are we just meant to hide in the shadows forever.
Blink and you'll miss it...
I haven't missed it this whole time. Now all the images are printed in my mind. Can't go back. You failed. Can't go back.
The answers are quite simple, yet even with such knowledge it won't change.
What won't change?
Tripping into Wonderland.
What a sight to see.
Is this what you asked for?
Are these the words satisfying to you? Or are you looking for something different? Something more... heartfelt?
Darling, it isn't easy being free...
