It’s all temporary, you know.
Do not indulge.
Don’t care too much.
Every hanging on
must soon let go.

Hold yourself aloof
the entanglements that would bind you,
drag you under,
leave you drowning.


I started whole
but they keep taking pieces:
a pinch of flesh,
(a pound of mind)
What will be left at the end?

Graviora manet.
So in the meantime, let us dance.

This was written for Three Word Wednesday.

Dancing when the world tumbles down around you? I am not so sure. I never was a good dancer!

There are always things too big to think of..which consume us piece by piece..maybe dancing is the best way to keep 'yourself' whole

I'm not too keen on all the pinching, but I don't mind loosing a bit of flesh here and there. It keeps growing back bigger and badder than ever.
