LOL! This rocks. Those were pretty much the last words I said to the custmoer before Kohl’s fired me!
Even through the music and the headphones I can hear them.
Happy voices, happy laughter. Inside the rot and despair grows silently, stealthfully, like mold. Soon you cannot even make out what the object was before the mold took over. I used to cry and it used to help. But, twenty eight years of crying have left me empty. Depression is a deadly and insidious disease. It kills unseen, misunderstood and scorned by those around you. The one that I really believed loved me no longer does. I hate myself for missing my one and only golden chance. I am bereft and not even allowed to grieve when those close to me simply say; “Perhaps you are better off anyway…” They can give me all the drugs in the world and they will never cure this slow, slow death. How can I make people understand when living holds no joy and all I do is wonder how to make it through another day? Was I born thirty years too early or thirty years too late? Am I a poet or a pretender? Am I smart or just suffering from a delusion of intelligence? What essential part of me did those men steal? The emotional scars never heal. After years the body shows no evidence of the terror, the raping, the torture, the agony. Its’ endless gift has been a lifetime of self hatred and fear. <Thursday February 23 2012 11.00 a.m.>
Along with Katherine Hepburn, two women who shaped the world with their own distinctive tastes, the true meaning of the word sophistication and forwarding the equal role of women in our society.
I really love things that challenge people to look outside the “frames” of their own perceptions. In this case; what it feels like to get asked these invasive questions and hear these kind of thoughtless responses when you share something very personal about yourself. As if dealing with being LGBTQ isn’t challenging enough. I would love to see these posters go up in every Middle School, High School and College campus in the U.S.A.
