Lucidly Out Of Touch

“Communication is on of the most important keys to life”. – common statement

– If that’s the case, why is it so easy to lose touch with one another?

In no way am I saying that I’m the perfect candidate to hold a seminar on keeping in touch… But I made a vow to do better. Ironically this subject has been lingering awhile – finally had the fuel to jot it down.

The other day I spoke with an old friend, our conversation made me think about how and why us individuals lose touch so frequently,  almost as cold as ice.

My freshman year in college (Virginia State University) I met a guy who instantly became my good friend. We would literally talk or see one another every day! He was very easy to talk to, non-judgemental, understanding real down to earth type of guy. Many would inquire, but it was just that simple we were friends. I learned from him the Baltimore culture and in return I gave him insight to Virginia living, it was dope! Sorta like that feel of being friends for sometime prior. 

“If the friendship was just that great what happened”?

Unforseen circumstances is probably the best statement to soften the blow, second semester came around, but my friend did not return.

Shoot I figured we could still be friends and keep in touch no matter the distance…

Easier said than done..

I will say though social media makes it super easy for one to think that they are keeping up with a person by providing visual connection and partial written communication (comments, likes, etc.) which negates the interpersonal level of communication (face-to-face). Outside of social media – text messaging, email, or just picking up the phone to call will suffice, even a hang-out session – all exist. Needless to say these examples exemplify all forms of communication: written, nonverbal, interpersonal and oral.

Could it be we all just get caught up within our own lives we neglect, from time to time, our peers? I don’t know about you, but I am guilty of this occurrence..

On another hand some folks are going to fall in and out of contact.. its life.. you just have to learn to separate the temporaries from the permanents. Time is the only true revealer of that.

To those whom I may not have had any communication with for sometime; charge it to the game and not my heart!! 

I am going to do better, how about you?

Simple Daily Prompt

 

Unevenly Bliss

The past few days have been sorta asymmetrical for me.

That is probably the best descriptive word to use.

Although negativity NO longer lingers,

Results from a great sacrifice

Ensures growth.

Taking Stagnate steps towards the next challenge.

Breaking this trance of silenced thinking,

Awaking 

As if I was first Born.

Retaining the Vision

As if I was Dreaming.

Risen

As if I was Sleeping.

For the Outsiders that gaze on

Being presumptuous in what they think they know is factually sound

When in reality It’s just another one-sided ploy.

You never gonna get me down.

This is the warm-up

Far Gone

About a month ago..

I published my very first blog post

Where has time gone?

It’s been about 9 months since My Nephews have been AWOL

Where did time go?

Where could they be?

Uncontrollable occurrences results to consequences

Appear as though they are

Depths of sands

No longer knowing just where to stand.

For if I take a step to my left

I then would be playing hooky

From the path set before me, not quit envisioning the absents of two precious kings.

Forging ahead with this hand dealt.

I will never Astray!

I will never Awry!

Anticipation of your return

Sojourn’s in my conscience sleep

That deep.

I Love you for everyday that your away,

We will  meet again.

Vessel Of Refuge

 

The holiday season can be treated as if you’d be taking a much-needed vacation from present reality

Just to

Provide all excuses to indulge in sinfully sweet treats,

Traveling to see relatives,

Reconnecting ties where they once fell off… And to

Simply relax.

However… Seasons are not identical for each individual

Mixtures of

Cinnamon

Nutmeg &

Brown sugar

Are quickly conformed into

Chaos

Confusion &

Hurt.

Pulling away… No longer wanting an association with Dysfunctional routines

Finally allowing sun rays to dry the trail of tears away..

Paving the way for a fresh start..

 Within..

An abundance of soul-searching has been had for the sake of conscious decisions..

Vowing to spread more peace and love

Fewer distractions

Working on the inside, out.

All

Bitter-sweetness

For I am better once retreated

Unveiling

Undefeated.

Before The Storm

tranquil-005 Subtle winds breeze by the cheek on my left side..

Leaves scattering across the ground

Quickly rolling the car window back up.. the tranquil atmosphere reminding me of a time I use to know.. never dismissing from my mind

Devine Deja vu..

Transitioning into chaotic from calm; never a dull moment with the family

 Je souhaitais juste que la paix durât un peu plus longtemps..
