Lines of yellow. Dashes of white. All on a canvas of black.......asphalt. Whose fault? Not mine, I know! My mind spins and spins in effort to title these million thoughts that have all shown up in the same window of only 60 seconds. "Black & Blue" my cheeks from turning them, over and over. I clinch my fist of words so tight, that now my tongue has been spat out onto the ground. But "Black & Blue" a part of the healing process, being once again made new. "Emotionally Unavailable" the way I must approach life sometimes, laughing as often as I can to maintain some form of sanity. No, not mean, not evil, but sparing all the beast found wrapped within. "REALLY??" That's the story you choose to stick with, even when "lie" is written in sharpie across your top lip? It's like saying you love me while your hand is still on the knife that's plunged into my gut., telling me you hope that I pull through yet allowing the blood to flow. No 911 either! GEEZ!
As my mind is engulfed in the darkness of the highway, my eyes look up.......And the moon said, "Hello. Remember me? I am your light in the darkness." I smiled, as the moon continued its "state of the Bryan" address. "Darkness is only darkness when there is no light. I've been here the whole time. Keep your head up, so you never lose sight of me. It's only a little while before my brother Sun is back for you to see." The moon was right. I'm never without light in my life.
The more I think about it, the more I realize that I've never lived in total darkness. Dimness, maybe, but never total darkness. There is always light.
