Beauty Is…..

Beauty is frolicking in a daisy patch of love and acceptance. Feeling the warmth of the sun on your cheeks as you look skyward watching the fluffy white clouds drift by. Feeling free of all the day to day constraints that hold you down and make you feel as though you can’t breathe another breath. Its the laughter that flows so innocently from your children. When everything seems right with the world and nothing can touch you or pull you down into the abyss. In fact there is no abyss, just beautiful, awe inspiring, love induced, laughter filled life. Where you are understood and there is no room for self-doubt or negative feelings. Just unadulterated happiness.

Why the hell do I feel like I’m constantly trying to claw my way out of the abyss? Why do I feel like I’m stuck down here waiting. Waiting for that next natural high. The high that will skyrocket me into that daisy patch of love and acceptance and the unadulterated happiness that is at my fingertips and yet feels so very far away. Why can’t I be stuck on high, why is low even an option? Avoidance is such a hard habit to break. I should be thankful that I haven’t sunk to the point of no return.

Amazing how something that is supposed to be about beauty can be turned into something so black and ugly……

And my soundtrack for the evening:

One lifetime is long enough
Is long enough to wait
The rain like silver in my ears
Fat nothing on my plate
A bucketful of Babylon
A belly full of hate
Go to sleep my one true love
And may your dreams be sweet

Then we’ll be running

See its face beneath the glass
It murmurs on the breeze
Like a long black Cadillac
It passes ‘neath the trees
What is it you’re waiting for?
Sweet love is on its knees
Go to sleep my one true love
And find your heart’s release

Then we’ll be running
Afraid of nothing
Yeah we’ll be running

Silence is golden
Here I am
I ain’t afraid of nothing
Silence is golden
Here I am

The sun above the cotton grass
Is sinking down like lead
The seagulls know the truth of it
And scream it overhead
Hold on to St. Christopher
The sky is murderous red
Go to sleep my one true love
Our glory lies ahead

Then we’ll be running
Afraid of nothing
Then we’ll be running

All wired up in a dawning ray
All wired up in a dawning ray
All wired up in a dawning ray
All wired up in a dawning ray
