“let it go -- the
smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise -- let it go it
was sworn to
go
let them go -- the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers -- you must let them go they

the biggest and all
things -- let all go

so comes love."

In a world obsessed with 'love' (whatever that means), I speak another language - pain.

What appeared like a miracle can some day become a pain, this same Shimla fog that I so loved once,now suffocates.
Like people, places have souls too, when two souls grow apart, it hurts.

When I can't read or write for long spans,when the blog goes barren and creativity kaput,when questions overwhelm and answers scare,it all manifests as a painfully stubborn stiff lower back.
Strange are the workings of my writer soul,nevertheless intelligent because had the wrist gone bad then how would I type a #rant against myself.

A FEW WORDS ON THE SOUL
We have a soul at times.
No one’s got it non-stop,
for keeps.
Day after day,
year after year
may pass without it.
Sometimes
it will settle for awhile
only in childhood’s fears and raptures.
Sometimes only in astonishment
that we are old.
It rarely lends a hand
in uphill tasks,
like moving furniture,
or lifting luggage,
or going miles in shoes that pinch.
It usually steps out
whenever meat needs chopping
or forms have to be filled.
For every thousand conversations
it participates in one,
if even that,
since it prefers silence.
Just when our body goes from ache to pain,
it slips off-duty.
It’s picky:
it doesn’t like seeing us in crowds,
our hustling for a dubious advantage
and creaky machinations make it sick.
Joy and sorrow
aren’t two different feelings for it.
It attends us
only when the two are joined.
We can count on it
when we’re sure of nothing
and curious about everything.
Among the material objects
it favors clocks with pendulums
and mirrors, which keep on working
even when no one is looking.
It won’t say where it comes from
or when it’s taking off again,
though it’s clearly expecting such questions.
We need it
but apparently
it needs us
for some reason too.
- Wislawa Szymborska
