“You’re bringing me closer to the edge of letting go.“
the word ‘manipulation’ has a negative connotation, but as with all things, the determining moral factor comes down to intention. as long as there is no ill motivation fueling our actions, there is nothing wrong with pulling the strings so that the puppet dances in alignment with the given choreography. in order to make this our best week, especially if the past few weeks have been less than satisfactory, we need to regain control of our itineraries. many of us have the nagging feeling that our current situations are not quite up to par, but we have the power to manipulate reality. all we have to do is transform our approach to time management.
forgive me if it seems like i’m coming apart at the seams
i’m just dressed in daydreams of a different time and space
where cotton and lace weren’t such oppressive creations
how many threads does it take to keep the fabric from breaking
when the shirt gets way too worn and the fit becomes too tight
because the friction of a growing body is an inevitable part of life
