Not again..!



I sit here completely dumb,
Numbed by the loss of words.
That smile has now left my face,
Emotions are gone for a vacation..

Anticipation of what’s going to hit-
Is making my heart pound harder!
I feel scared thinking of the adversities..
Really, is there any more left to touch Me..?

The articles on my desktop-
Are as lifeless as my own self.
Watching the blank walls-
While the walls stare back at them blankly!

I don’t wish to start yet another voyage..
On storming sea; against a rough weather:
How many more feathers to lose-
In order to balance my survival through?

    whenever someone pitches in a suggestion “to start over”, rejection is the first thought that comes to my mind. I don’t want to lose what I have achieved till date (even if it’s nothing), I only remember my hard work in the journey and when you remember that, it’s hard to let go, a very generalized feeling in life “Not Again!”.
    Great write Olivia!

      May I say- you read the essence just exactly how it was meant to be?
      Indeed when you walk a mile you don’t wish to lose all that you may have collected even though when you may end up realizing that it was nothing but dirt.. then again, you would have to walk another couple of miles before you know that! Wait, do we want to.. sure?

      Thank you for this kind comment. Exactly this was what had germed my mind when I had written this one! Thank you yet again!!!

    The cycle of life tests can tear us to nothing. I like to think of it as the Universal way of erasing our canvas to start a new picture. Like a giant etch a sketch as it were. You captured the grief, anxiety and frustration well here, emotive piece ~ Rose

      Thank you Rose!
      Indeed I was much crushed under those feelings – you have named here. It was just so scary to try out a new thing. Today when the things have changed a bit; it still makes me anxious when I look back upon what a dead phase that it was.. Things are beginning to look up. Will soon write about those here!

    Lovely yet foreboding…

    The ubiquitous “they” say the Gods try the ones they love most. Still, when going through yet another of life’s trial one can’t help but wish for a little more of the tribulations. May whatever this to shall pass as quickly as possible.

      Thank you Pax!!
      It’s almost over now.. the 1st phase of transition. Now I see the 2nd phase switching on.. I am liking the developments. This is what had made me go uncomfortable. Quite miraculously, things are falling at their places on their own!
      God…. well, I guess he is that biased manager who just prefers me to do the fire-fighting.. hahaha

    All life’s journeys are as unique as we are individual. I hope this journey proves successful even though you may not want to take it.
    Great read which I thoroughly enjoyed.

      Thank you Trevor!

      Yes, I was skeptical. It’s beginning to un-haze now.. perhaps, it would be my last of the transitions.. AMEN to that!!
      I am already on that “journey” and I am loving it!!

    And, of course, the astrologer may well be wrong! Any big change is scary but it is all a part of our lifes unfolding. Don’t fight it, just try and relax and go with the flow, its always easier. Big changes are sometimes monumental to us but, they do tend to shape our lives, mostly for the better. Think positive thought and bring positive energy to you. Hoping things won’t be anywhere near as bad as you think they may be.

      Thank you for your wishes DayDreamer!
      The phase is towards its end now. Let’s just say I brought this whole thing down on me. I wanted a change and yet was (am) scared of losing what I have right now cause that would affect my state of survival. It’s all turning out slowly towards yet another big change. Hopefully I will succeed and not just survive.
      I am on a roller coaster ride.. πŸ˜€

      Indeed, it is turning out in a very vivid manner! Of course there are massive changes but am getting used to the new life now. Thankfully, the basics haven’t gotten affected… πŸ™‚

    This one rings of despair. I see you battling the serpents and winning. Can you see it too?

      A few of those serpents have been sent back for their lives.. a few more left.. I will definitely win over since I have your wishes now… Thank you again!! πŸ™‚

    Ooooh. First of all, dump the astrologer. In the American Indian tradition, the snake totem is an totem of transformation and positive growth. It is a good totem, although I prefer not to run into one outside. :0). Second, you have the courage to face whatever lies ahead, and the positive attitude. Remember, childbirth is painful but when new life emerges, wonderful things are waiting for you. And some things we just don’t understand.
    Love to you.

      Thanks Victoria.. Your words fill me up with courage! Perhaps I keep undermining myself.. I promise would not let go of what I have ventured out to earn. Not anymore! A couple of snakes did hiss at me in my dream and my transition had started…

      Thank you so much for telling me how I am — am I really the way you have described? Thank you once again for making me see it that way! Definitely, there are things we don’t understand.

    What an eye catching picture….

    Loved this line best – Really, is there any more left to touch Me..?

    We survive because we are strong. Hope everything works out well for you~

    Emotive lines made sharp through questioning.
    “I don’t wish to start yet another voyage..
    On storming sea; against a rough weather:”
    Can relate… still one must voyage onward. And that takes great courage and resolve. Moving poem.

      Yes…………….. that’s precisely why I have taken the sails high in a direction!

    Although I am reading this one for the second time, it still holds the same gripping nature as the first time…
    I even felt a tug.. of reality… it gave me a good shake really!

    And yet, this time, I sense a change… for the better… and the same for you too, sweetiez!!
    You very know what I mean… πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Kavs…
      You being with me all this while helped me a great deal! No matter what; you made me smile each time I went sad.. πŸ™‚
      Indeed, I was expecting a change and was hoping that to be as tender as it could be.. Change is big but breaking on me softly!

      Thank you one more time girl.. Big Bear Hugs to you too xoxoxoxo

      Kavz Dear,
      I am trying to distract myself in some or the other constructive manner. It seems I am banging myself up on the invisible walls of hopelessness! There’s this bit of restlessness that has crept in- exactly how it does before any major change in my Life n Lifestyle..

      Fingers Crossed..
      Thank you for your wishes xx

      I am hoping the same- I am not as superstitious however somewhat intuitive.. So far I’m just feeling good, a change is definitely about to hit me- it’s the repercussions that worries me often. As of now my mind is blank- can’t see much beyond a certain point..

      Thanks for your wishes..! πŸ™‚

      Thanks for understanding..
      I dreamt of snakes chasing me the other day.. Talked to one of the astrologers on phone today.. He says it’s my 6th sense warning me against something terrible that is to hit me soon!!
