    We are most alive when emotions are on edge,
    like when the heart is breaking on the losing end.
    Seething emotional turmoil brings senses to a boil.
    Wrapped in this deep sensibility that keeps the mind a jumble
    Our hearts are clear the looking glass reflecting the water of clarity.
    Picture an emotional wrench that twists the best part of you
    into something that is at once unique and highly efficacious.
    To feel things in a substantially smaller manner is belittling.
    Without the pure emotive force during these tempests
    it is difficult to know the naturalness of living and loving
    the epicurean rapture that moves us past the prosaic
    pensiveness of peacefulness and into the absoluteness of emotion.
    Without it, love is a wasted accessory to petty libidinous longing.

    When do we live most?

    This is the only time I can think that we are fully functioning--Ra

    This is a serious thinking piece, and I agree with the tempest in a teapot theory on a day to day basis. But also feel in the very stillness of quiet is where life really exists. But most of us are not too comfortable there so we go stirring things up. I did enjoy this.

    U R So right--there is life in tranqility--unfortunately few find it--u bring a keen observation I wish I would have been able to reach without going to the school of hard knocks--even though I have the diploma--I'd rather have taken tranquility--Amun-Ra

    Amun-Ra, I did not get to skip ahead in school either, I also took the pre-requisite hard knocks in life. I think they are what led me to my moments of tranquility, and I know, they are what allow me now to comfortably sit and savoir them. I would not have sat still long enough to experience them at all if the thrill ride of life was all joyous. It is never too late to enroll in a new class and experience something new, especially about oneself. Well class is out for today.:)

    you know

    I read this piece a couple of days ago, but my brain wasn't firing properly, and I knew I'd need to go lie down, rest a while, come back so I can digest this potent piece of poetic/prose. Look here...

    "Without the pure emotive force during these tempests
    it is difficult to know the naturalness of living and loving
    the epicurean rapture that moves us past the prosaic
    pensiveness of peacefulness and into the absoluteness of emotion.
    Without it, love is a wasted accessory to petty libidinous longing. "


    Just go head and teach witcha bad sef! And I have to admit that I for one need much from love than "petty libidinous longing"!
    (HEY NOW!)

    Libidinous longing

    I have been caught here many times and the funny thing, it has been the most difficult to get past--this is when we really get to know others and ourselves--it is so easy to give in--I have--but to hold out for the better offer takes will power and an idea that something better is at the end of the line--I try to stay away from it all together, but I am only human--still, I really try to get past the veneer and seek the solid wood beneath--Ra
