Dullness quells life. Awareness lethargy smothered, freedom-yearn tears emotion.
Boredom-relief inspiring-action search reveals apathy.
Interest-sparking idea-moment sabotaged, all activity thought-rendered pointless.
Turn over a rock and see what’s there.
Discovery potential begs worn-minded attention.
Creates transitory hope.
Smithereened upon same rocks.
Revealing expected: mundane reality, pointlessness’ proof.
One spark. One charge upon expectation’s tinder.
Nurtured flame is inferno-promise.
Conflagration built with careful fuel-placement.
Life’s riches abundant in reality’s bonfire.
Yet tinder remains damp.
Ever more ineffective sparks miss target.
Long term pal. Co-adventurer. Makes space by her fire.
I warm cockles and dry tinder.
An ember. Flame-ended promise.
Borrowed. Given. Transferred.
Ignition. Soft-kindled flame nurtured.
My own fire sheds warmth.
Radiates inner light.
Bounty appreciated. Previous life-paucity contract stark.
Reflection brings despair-pit closer.
Ingrained thought paths, etched into mind’s life-fabric, grip-forces you to the brink.
Once seen, the gap is ever-present.
Love’s companionship serves reminder: freefall halted.
Jedi mind trick restores positivity.
I have warmth to dry tinder.
Sparks to ignite.
Come stand by me.
