  1. I usually dislike modern approaches to poetry, but this is nicely done.

    Also, is life all about pain, or is the latter rather a means of reminding us that we are still alive?

  2. Life is certainly influenced by pain; at times and depending upon who you are, it may simply be a burden. But the question remains whether life is all about pain. If you mean by that that life is about trying to avoid and deal with pain, then you are most certainly right. Then again, life does not exclusively consist of pain; otherwise we should not even be able to discern pain from not-pain.
    Besides, I think only the lives of those select few who are free of illnesses of all kinds and are financially settled are easy. Everyone else – and that means more or less everyone – has to struggle one way or another.

  3. Are you trying to say that your life is mostly defined by pain? Perhaps I am just reading this into your words, but it seems to me you are trying to make me take a hint. 🙂
    As concerns my life, it again depends upon what, exactly, you understand by ‘good’. The answer would most probably be both ‘yes’ and ‘no’ in any case, though. On the one hand, I have been suffering from recurrent depression for more than twelve years now and most aspects of my life have fallen into turmoil because of it; on the other hand, there are certainly many people out there who suffer worse and have known little more than misery throughout their entire life. Make of it what you want, I do not know what to make of it myself.
    I feel I should refrain from claiming my life to be defined by pain only, at any rate.

  4. Relationships today are dull and dead. People only date because they’re physically attractive. Looks matter. But you need a mental attraction to get even further with someone.

  5. Perhaps they just wish to avoid the pain that ensues such a felt connection if it is not felt mutually, that is to say, if, which is always a possibility, the other person rejects you as a partner.
    In fact, I feel such a connection to someone right now, but I have no idea where we stand, and that throws me off trail quite a bit. The interesting point is that the more I feel connected to that person, the less I care about what they look like, while conversely, the less I care about what they look like, the more beautiful they are to me. Does this make any sense? I do not know.

  7. Well, in the long run, looks tend to play a lesser role because eventually, beauty on the outside will vanish. Also, books and films, as well as television series, misportray love, anyway, just as much as pornography misportrays sex. You are right, of course, inasmuch as there is always a physical basis for love, namely, within our brains. That is where it ultimately takes place, but there is still a difference between a connection based upon looks and a connection based upon personality. Both can, needless to say, go hand in hand – and I do apologize for the use of this metaphor, but it is all that I can think about right now (which is, to a degree, a metaphor in itself, by the way).

  8. People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. 

    A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave. 

    A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master….

  9. Hm… Yeah. Outer beauty fades one day! All remains is inner beauty n personality. Peoples’ behaviour tell lot of things….

    May b yes! But love looks more real n magical in series than in real life.

    I doubt about such existence of love

  10. You doubt it for good reason, but not correctly: It does exist, not magically, of course, that would always be the wrong term, and not objectively, of course, but subjectively and, if you are lucky, also intersubjectively. I, for one, feel this kind of love for the aforementioned person. I do not wish to go into more detail here for fear of delivering indentifying information. 🙂

  11. I have to disagree here. All you did was first, redefine the term ‘soulmate’, and second, redefine the ultimate goal of love or a partnership.
    I have no quarrel with redefining words for technical or other use, in fact, I have done so myself several times. Yet I fail to see any good reason to assume your axioms and thus your conclusion. If I am not mistaken – and I am asking you to correct me by all means if I am wrong –, you are saying that the ultimate goal of love is some kind of domination, a disproportionate relation rather than an equilibrium. But then again, there would be no need for such a thing considering your redefinition of ‘soulmate’.
    May I kindly ask you to elaborate upon your views?

  12. What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game. Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.

  13. Yes, this is an old pet peeve of both psychology and neurology. We are always on a mission of adapting to that which we believe to experience, while at the same time we keep trying to adapt that which we believe to experience to us. The question remains, then, whether we really have a choice regarding this – can we change the manner in which we perceive, can we conduct any influence, or are we slaves to our perception and the ensuing, if not entailed, interpretation?

  14. This, I must admit, is a bit too much of relativism for my taste, then. I should not claim, let me hasten to add, any authority over your thoughts, though. I am, after all, just a poet and a philosopher – nothing that anyone would or should take seriously.

  15. Haha

    Its really complicated 😦

  16. Besides, it is not complicated. We just make it so. I am not allowed to share my love, and so the hungry flames consume me whole, time and again, most probably till the end of my life. This time around it is far worse than it ever has been, yet I shall survive again – for better or worse, I cannot tell. I am inclined to assume the latter, but then again, that is just a symptom of depression.

  17. I am not loved; sometimes I doubt that I am even liked. Perhaps I deserve this; I do not know how or why, but perhaps I do. All is lost, anyway. What does it matter, then? It simply does not – not at all.

  18. The way I am reading it, there is the wonderful statement of my heart is a house, your heart is an inn….which sums up a lot of my relationships… I read “inn” as a temporary comfort while “house” is more permanent…

  19. I think he means that the verse ‘Your heart is inn’ could be changed to ‘Your heart is an inn’, yet I would disagree, not in terms of grammar, but in in terms of art and emotion.
    Perhaps he can elaborate his point a bit.

  20. How I actually am will be partially – and by that, I mean to a vast extend – determined either tonight or tomorrow. I shall keep you posted, though. 🙂

We think the title is not right, not inviting, not clear. Since people like lists so very much, we should have given them a title of lists. if you are not too busy here is the link again bphope.com/blog/bipolar-strong-list-o-mania-shocker
