closure. It was what i needed so i could move on. It was something that i did not have after a bittersweet breakup. It was very hard to let go when you think that you already have found someone you will be sharing the rest of your life with, without any doubt and fear at all. But before all this, there was this old life of mine that i do miss. I crave having breakfasts, having lunches, having dinners with a good friend. Lots of laughters, less of tears every time. The routines of an old life. Something familiar. Something nostalgic.
do you leave a chapter in your life open-ended in order to move on to the next one? Perhaps life's ebbs and flows are similar to going from one track to the next of a shiny compact disc? Are there any smooth transitions? There are some cd albums that are an exception. Like Madonna's Confessions on a Dance Floor. It is indeed "non-stop." All the tracks are seamlessly interconnected. However, not all people's lives do not flow like Madonna's album after all. Some lives are more broken up than the other's. People even change their names partially or completely to start a new. Like Prince. He changed his names three times. From Prince to the "Artist Formerly Known As..." to some sort of heiroglyphic symbol; only to change back to Prince. I wonder if he even went back to his old life when he changed back to his old name.
how do i even transition? Do i start fading the pigment of my colorful memories and eventually letting them fall off from the branches of my twiggy life? Do i get myself ready for the dark cold days of winter as i leave my bright happy days summer? What's next?
