Back to Back


Holding contents of opposite trends.

Supposed to be a matching pair.

They face opposing, outwards and witheringly stare.

Opposite directions. 

One looks to the East, 

The other to the West.

How do they find balance?

when the content they protect is not heightened to its proportional best?

Like lovers involved in a dual 

Too stubborn to look at each other. 

Only adds to the fuel.

How to get the two to work to keep a soul mates love knowledge intact?

Keep revisiting different contents with proven facts.

Facing opposite directions doesn’t have to mean white and black.

If we delve into our grey matter- know the most important thing about being a  perfect pair of bookends:

is to have each other back. 

(feeling lost, low and not myself)

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “book.” Use any meaning of the word as your theme, or simply mention the word “book” in your post. Enjoy!

    Daisy, I haven’t seen you this way in quite a while. Can you say exhausted? I cannot imagine what you are going through with so much going on in your life right now. I’m giving you permission to back off, even permission to let us know that you are gonna be a slacker for a time. There are too many triggers happening and pressure won’t help. Just let it all go for a bit with a little grace. Your good buddies will all be here when you return. 😉 We love you and just want to see you feeling good. We do give you permission to be just busy enough to stay in your zone though.
    Hope you enjoy a great week ahead. 🙂

    Beautiful words, Daisy. I get a sense of hope, despair, confusion, and longing from this post that I can identify with greatly. It is very poignant and I enjoyed reading it, as it was interpreted by me as sorrowful/frustrating yet filled with an underlying faith in love. Thank you for sharing!

  7. I totally enjoyed this perspective of book ends and having each others back. SOC’s is wonderful right? You never know what thoughts would stream through.

  14. Love stream of consciousness work, Ms. Irrepressible Woman (love that too, btw). Stream of consciousness is so important. I think that’s why journaling can be a great technique. Bookend metaphor is great…having each others’ back…very clever.
