Going away from you… This Is What It Feels Like
Like riding into the sunset, knowing that there’s nothing but darkness for a long time,
before it it will be light again.
Like being left in the open but not knowing where to go.
Like being trapped in a dark room,
Till you find the light switch.
The feeling that life will never be the same again.
That I again have to deal with the feeling that I still don’t know what I want in life.
Like being rudely awoken from a deep sleep of a year and more. And face life again. A life where I don’t know what I want to do, what I will do, who will be with me, where will I be.
That I may never see your again. How do I deal with that.
How do I get over the thought that I can’t seem to go a day without you.With whom will I go out again for an evening out and fight over where to go. How do I ever listen to Pink Floyd again, without missing you so badly How do I deal with this lump in my throat that rises everytime I think of you going away Even though you are only going a few states away to study, yet I don’t know if I’ll ever see you again. It seems like I’m treating this and myself in this situation as if someone has passed away. Well, it feels like that.
TIPSY ART HISTORY: Absinthe
Pale green liquor made from Artemisia Absinthia, also known as wormwood. In the 1840s it was given to French troops to prevent fever, and when they returned home they requested it at bars. By the early 20th century, absinthe was in such high demand that 5 p.m. was known as “the green hour” at French saloons. The drink was banned in 1915 in many European countries and the U.S. after a vicious propaganda campaign condemning the drink’s “psychoactive” properties.
