Free....



As i sit in the rain with the water falling over me...i finally attain the feeling i strive for...the feeling of being free...


as the water flows off me it takes away all that is unwanted...


the tensions...the pain...the sorrows...the suffering


regrets of the past... fears for the future... they are all washed away...


all that is left behind is that one moment... the moment that is me ...yes...FREE...free of all the ties that bind me and pull me down...free to fly, to soar high into the skies of my thoughts and dreams...to dive and get lost in the depths of the deepest ocean that is me...


....and yet free even of those very dreams and thoughts...


as the drops skim my skin it feels like the touch of a lover... gentle yet powerful... soft but intimate... liberating yet all possessing...

that drives all else but itself from the mind...

transforming me and transporting me onto a different level...

to a place where i am finally at peace with myself and this world... a place where i find acceptance from myself and find in myself to accept this world...


in that moment as the cool water forms rivulets down by back and soaks me...
as it wraps me in its blanket and isolates me...

i feel protected and yet liberated...

get the feeling of being held and yet of being set free...



i am free of memory and hurt...of instinct and intuition...of friends and foes...yes...free of life itself...



the winds and the water swoosh through me and empty me of all emotions..

of joy and sorrow.. jealousy and care.. truth and duplicity.. love and hatred..

they empty me of myself...


in those briefs moments of losing myself, i find the real me...
i find my NIRVANA...

PS: this is one of my earliest posts, but since i love it so much and i so wanted to bring it on the front page..i just changed the date :D
for those who haven't read...hope u enjoy it..this is one of the most honest things i have ever written..
