Jett Superior laid this on you on || February 24, 2011 || 10:27 am

My insides are really still right now, not expectant, not coiled and ready to spring nor steeled for a blow.

Since you are human, you must know what a treasure this is.

I’m just sitting in the middle of it, enjoying the simplicity of unfuckedupness. Rest here with me for a minute, here in the place where we don’t have to talk and we can just be. Eye contact isn’t necessary. Smiling is optional, but encouraged.

    I am listening as I type. Typing because it is your title which plucked the string: “i love you but it is complicated”. This is how I feel today, have been feeling for days on days, about online-ness.
    And now, now he sings “into the great unknown”, and another string thrums. you see, i am wondering if it is better to dwell there for now. pack up my words and get them off public spaces so I can better face the daily great unknowns. so in the end I can offer better words, collected and honed, and set them down carefully. so i can turn my face to the winds and feel less frazzled by their force. also in the hope of moments like yours, more smiling, more still-sitting.
    thank you for this little window of song & thought. you see? that’s the i love you part. but it is complicated.

    Drifting in the space between the trapeze bars and wishing the knots would uncoil.

    Thanks for the breath of fresh air.

    I love the Dawmwells. If the unfuckedupness ever returns (which I hope it doesn’t), I highly recommend their song “Graceless” for such an occasion. (You know. A sitting in the bathtub for a second, with or without water occasion.)

    @themrs Unfuckedupness needs to stay…it’s the fuckedupness that we hope to keep at bay.

    The Superior household claims, to a man, fame as being Damnwells fans from the first listen of their first single, ‘Sleepsinging’.

    Of all the perfect phrases you’ve chosen, above, “not steeled for a blow,” is the most precious gift in my life.

    It took me, sadly, years, to uncoil and be in that state.
    Long story: but just let me say, I love the phrase, “not steeled for a blow.”

    Thank you.

    Sorry, I can’t seem to stop now. The plunge has a momentum of its own, but I glimpse you on the way down and offer a quick wave.

    i LOVE the simplicity of not being fucked up.

    ’tis a rarity.

    i try to hold onto it like a pimp holds onto his prize winning whore when i am blessed to experience it.

    Thanks for the intro to this band… love it. Love it. Love it.

    And, I suspect for more physical reasons, I could write exactly what you did above and have every word be true. Sigh. Stupid guts and stupid health…

    Just being is so much better than awkward silences.
