Sadness
2/9/2007 10:22:25 AM
Are some just destined to be sad? I know I can relate to much of what Laurie writes here. How about you?
Soliloquy on Sadness     
  
 
Warm candleglow through the cold windowpane.  I imagine gentle happy family life within.  Out here, in the dark and vision blurring mist, I feel the sadness, in my throat, welling up in my eyes, softening my heartbeat into tiny bleats of pathos.  I am walking without purpose, or with the purpose of walking, movement, letting the evening take me where it will.  It is our sadness, more than anger, more than fear, more than love, that bonds us in that chain of humanity.  Swimming through our tears, feeling the dense saltiness upon our skin, upon our differentiating shields, we are creatures more profound, more sensitively layered, than in other guises.
Sad songs surprising us on the radio, or played incessantly on the jukebox or cd or other technology, the strains grab us by our groins and vital organs.  Sad movies make me tear up and want to hide, or hug someone very dearly, very closely, denying any space between.  There is bravery in sadness truly engaged.  Essential lessons unwind into wisdom through the loving eyes of sadness.  Crying out the pain can reveal beneath a wild wind tunnel of new energy generation.  I will sing my sadness to the wind and rain and mist; I will cry it onto dusty deserts and rocky plains.  I will wash in mighty oceans of all the sadness of the world. 
 
Tonight I will slowly walk the dark and misty streets, peering into warmly glowing households, dreaming so clearly all the faces of sadness I have ever seen or imagined.  I will imagine the beauty of gentle happy people, unaware of my presence outside their sphere.  I will take a moment to taste the salt of my tears, which barely increase the misty moisture upon my face.  I will laugh, silently, with true mirth, at my sobriety, and continue walking, wherever this evening leads.
