Blissful Oblivion…

΅〜 ೋღ  ♥  ღೋ      〜΅

Love me no more…
Love me no less…
I cannot compete with the illusion I’ve created… projected…
I am not all you see…
My true self lies hidden in oblivion…
Buried inside…safe…protected…
I’ve worn this mask long enough to almost fool myself…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Don’t you see me?
Can you see beyond my charade?
Do you even want to…
I suppose that is the driving question…

΅〜 〜΅ 

I am a jaded dreamer…
Hopeless romantic…
Vulnerable…
Hesitant…
Cautious…
Shattered…
Reconstructing…
A plethora of words…none will do…

΅∼ ೋ ೋ ∼΅

Blissful oblivion…is where I remain….

  1. Wow. Another masterful poem. So deep … literally. Deep into oblivion. I love the way you put your whole self, your feelings, your mind, behind the “charade”.

    An excellent poem my friend

  2. How can one be oblivious to your oblivion my friend. It’s obvious from this poem that you are not a dizzy blonde Christina. A big hug to awaken you from your blissful oblivion. Ralph xox 😀

  9. You are so unbelievably talented, so multi-layered, your words so stirring. I truly believe, although many of us (me included) cannot begin to write so eloquently, you have the unique ability to draw such deep emotions from us. I can so relate to the line “I’ve worn this mask long enough to almost fool myself”. Keep them coming Christina and please, please, pretty please, write that book. 😀

      • I have a friend who I have been encouraging to start a blog, even if he keeps it private for a time, a journal of sorts. I have told him so often how this blogging community feeds one’s soul, how, during trying times, they know just what to say, just when to say it. I feel I have the bestest of friends around the globe, beginning right where you and your mother reside.

        I pray that these past few days have not been difficult ones for you, but it they have, know you have someone in Ohio who believes in you, knows what an amazingly strong young woman you are, and loves you bunches. 🙂

        • Thank you so much LuAnn…for remembering this time of year can be difficult indeed. Though each year does get better as I can recall the good and less and less of the bad. As you say though…it is such an amazingly awesome feeling to have such amazing friends/family around the world (like you!)!

          You are truly such an incredibly source of encouragement! I don’t feel strong most days haha. But I like to think it is as you said…together we have so many who care…and knowing that can make all the difference in the world! I do hope your friend does start to blog…I can’t imagine my life without you and others in it….as you are so specially and so very very loved!! I’m sending my immense gratitude for you and all my love…and hugs of course…to you all ways♥♥♥!!!

          • I am certain, beyond a doubt, that you are indeed very strong. I know that I am as well but I certainly had many moments this past summer where I began to wonder where that strong woman had disappeared, feeling lost and unsure of who I was. We all have these periods of questioning, of loss, but deep down, where the true essence of us resides, there is a strength just waiting to pour forth. Your outlet for finding your strength, your center, appears to be your writing, a talent that surpasses so many. I cannot believe how fortunate I am to have found you and your mother and have been allowed to experience your talents. I hope you and your family had a peaceful weekend. Much love 🙂

            • I think there is a whole book that could (should) be written on that very subject! It is amazing to me how that strength appears exactly when it is needed. If only it could be tapped into during the periods of feeling its disappearance as you so very wisely said! Thank you so much for being such a integral part of this healing journey…for your continued belief in me, praise and encouragement…for both of us! And for having us on your journey! I know I can speak for both of us because we love you that very much and then some more!!! I am hopeful this week is the very best is can be for you!! ❤Hugs&So so much Love❤!! 😀

I feel blessed that our virtual paths have crossed and know some day we will hug face-to-face but until then, I am sending the biggest, bestest hug I can muster. Have a blessed week Christina. 🙂
