And today I bury my heart deep in its grave, so that I don’t feel nauseous when I remember the repetitive silence that has always followed my tentative step.
Can’t remember when I started to hear these voices
two naturally opposed entities on each side of my lobe
enemies out of routine
one a self-chosen victim
one a sour bum
then came that evening,
some cake and, of course, a no
then came a week day
a wonderfully creamy yes
in a rather public shop
I could still hear them fighting
one hesitant, insecure,
one very caustic, and very… very sure
You became the topic
and the argument was extremely hot
Next up I’m flying
away and for long
months kiss each other goodbye
and I’m playing fool
cause if not, i break down
And here comes the funny thing
you would think these two would keep spitting and biting each other
you would definitely expect some violence, at least a scene
one crying, incurably wounded
one scornfully spouting its “I told you so”
But you know what I’m hearing?
You know what these two are telling me know?
for once they agree
for once they both want the exact same thing
for once they ask, one pleadingly and one imperatively,
on top of their voices
for one thing only
they ask for you
So you wouldn’t believe what I have to put up with every day
Come to think about it, I guess I miss when they fought each other
and let me alone
cause now all eyes are on me
or should I say ears? I don’t know…
But the clock is ticking
And they’ve been very clear
they even gave me an ultimatum
and you know what? I don’t think I have a choice

See, I told you I was going to keep talking about Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series! Today I’m going to discuss three ways in which the series subverts the expectations of readers familiar with Christian lore. These tropes are the Mystical Pregnancy, the Death of the Son of God, and God Dying for Our Sins. I think these departures from Christian canon are ultimately more “human”—more relatable and thus, perhaps, more believable.

I’m not religious or anything, but now when I’m sad, I do a lot of kneeling on the ground and thanking whatever. Just for me, to acknowledge something and and make it physical so that it sets in. The thing I will say always is, “Thank you for my problems and I send my love everywhere.” I am generalizing— there are problems that just fuckin’ suck and are terrible— but problems like being sad or having your heart broken aren’t any less valuable than happiness is. So when things are really bad, nowadays I recognize the value in it because I know it is going to make me appreciate happiness in the future way more.
