Down




Down
 
Press your lips to the veins in my wrist—let the stones beneath arch
against your tongue.  Highways of granite, limestone, shale
Barricade together where iron and salt once lifted me
Press your ear to my hollow back, the conglomerate
valley where air is fragmented obsidian.
Hold your arms against my cold, try to bear the weight.
Stones split my skin, and I walk a circle of falling years.
Inside this circle of stone and sand
 I will teach you the inverse of blood.

Thanks. I need to stop watching triggery shows really, but we both know I won't.

Went home at lunch with another migraine this week, yay. They played my favourite movement of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies and Musorksky's Pictures at an Exhibition on CBC radio before I left, that was lovely.

I just wish there was a way for all of it to stop, but I realise that is futile. I shall stop whining now;)

You're not whining, you're venting. Venting is necessary, please don't stop. :-)

I'm really curious what you were watching, but it's okay not to tell me if it's going to be bad for you.

Bones last night, which is usually fine, but alas Booth's absentee father died. There was a box of photos and things deteriorated from there. Wonderful acting of course, but yes. The other thing today I cannot tell you yet. I am just overly emotional right now anyway.

Thanks for the offer, my body is falling apart. Of course they didn't know what caused my father's migraines anymore than they do mine, but it makes IBS and everything worse. Bah, stopping now. Will get tea.

Ah, yeah, that'd do it. I don't watch the show, but I can definitely understand.

Again and again and again, I really wish it was feasible to just drive down on a moments notice and hang out or dispense backrubs, because I would.

*so many hugs*

Watching The Terror with Boris Karloff now, that will help a bit.

I know, I appreciate the thought, regardless:)
