We do for others because we don't know how to do for ourselves. We do for others because we feel it is the only way to make up for the damage we feel our craziness is doing to society. We do for others because it makes us feel good when nothing else in the whole world does, not even pills. We stay quiet and sit in the corner because others seem so much more needy. We require so little, you and I. A fact which does not sit well with others who would label us as too much to handle. When in truth, all those such as us really need is a bit of understanding, a bit of reciprocation, maybe a touch on the cheek once in a while and a sly wink. The rest of the world is needy. I'd rather be crazy. ~~Aimee

Shiny Bubbles

Do you ever just wonder what it'd be like to just "be" without having to try? To just float through life on a cloud without having to force yourself into a hole that is too small for you? To close your eyes and let the sand float through your fingers? To feel the wetness of the rain tickle down your face? To just be able to breathe air in and out without having to force it through your body? 

I wonder what it would be like to walk without chains. To float and swirl and twirl until you fall down dizzy. 

Within these days I am free. As free as I ever am. The weight that sits upon my chest becomes lighter. Easier to carry. The darkness of my corner is less black and between the layers I wonder. Wonder and roam invisible to those around me. Running my hands across the tops of the grain stalks as I walk through the fields. A silent observer of life until the time comes for me to return to my dark corner and back to blackness of whence I came.

I had such a yearning feeling reading your first paragraph, It sounds so lovely and free. Just to be in the moment.
