‘NAIVE NIRVANA’

SERIES PART 2

 

When I was a child, I yearned to be an adult and now that I’ve had the deadly nectar of all that is adulthood; I now yearn my impossible return to those days of unlimited innocence and wonder. How then can this sick game be fair? When youth’s beauty is only apparent after the lingering sense of time travel is no longer there. Something deep inside me has been shattered and I can no longer see the world the same way. Some call it puberty, I call it the very first of our many existential crisis.

It’s that time, you know it very well, that unexpected time coming at a faster speed than our mind can comprehend. Just like that I am thrown to the abyss, free falling and my world along with me… Our world, shattered into a million pieces much like a mirror that has been struck at a greater force than it was made to endure. Now think back boy, at which point between childhood and adulthood was your world shattered?

This was our first glimpse to the ying and yang we called a ‘relationship’. It’s dangerous beauty and wonder pulls me in whilst the nasty truth leaves me somber still craving for more. Awareness has now occurred, and it lays dormant to your path leading back to safety. This is the beginning of what you’ve chiseled me out to be and for you the freedom to be who you are meant to be.

I envy the ability I once had, to be a dreamer with endless combinations to this world. If I choose to remain the same it shall be construed as ‘living in the clouds’ or better yet a ‘naive dreamer’. Just the thought of it all seems so sweet and pure that I’d much rather reside in naive nirvana in believing my world could one day be at peace with yours, as one.
