Lost



We've been having serious autumn storms the last few days.
Flower post have been crashing to the ground,
my Halloween display strewn across the patio.

Inside I have been feeling the same; raw and unstable.
The stress of the last month(s) is taking its toll.
I can't concentrate on things, my skin is breaking out.

Yesterday I couldn't get myself out of bed all day.
I hid under the covers with the curtains drawn,
even the laptop fan was too much noise for me to handle.

In desperation I reached for the nearest book
and spent the next couple of hours letting myself
get lost among crumbling stone walls covered in lichen
and hideous sights no man should ever gaze upon.

The gothics got it right. Maybe they had BD too?

  1. It's too bad you and I are separated by an ocean. I could see us chilling, doing crafts or baking when we get like this. Since your comment on my blog I've felt a little more stable, I remember things that matter and I try to look at the positive. I've been reading too, it helps a lot. I'm glad you can take some comfort in Gothic lit. :) Just remember that Halloween is not too far away! Plenty of good times await you.
    *hugs*

    1. I could totally see us doing all of this, while drinking sweet vodka drinks :)
      I'm glad you are feeling a bit more stable. I was sorry to hear you in such a bad way.

      I am not a big reader, when compared to you and other blog friends. I get disappointed constantly, and have to force myself to not give up and rediscover reading.

      Happy Halloween!

  2. Aw, sounds like you really needed a day to hide and read. I completely sympathize with that! Your body, mind and soul know what they need and want ... let 'em have it! :) Take care of yourself, dear friend. Sending you love and lots of hugs!

  5. :( I hope you're feeling a little better now!
    Sometimes you just need a day to curl up and hide with a good book!

    1. Thank you!
      I have rarely heard of any books my blog friends talk about. One book at a time...

  6. Autumn is a time for introversion, I also like to settle down with hot chocolate and a good book. Just take the time you will need, the world will still be there when you return...

    1. Thank you! But October is no time for winding down for me, it's crazy - no rest for the wicked :)

  7. Poe definitely had it bad, and Shelley, definitely Shelley...

    I'm glad you were able to come out today, and play a bit. As long as you can defeat the blanket cocoon every now and then, all will be well... eventually. ♥

    1. And Hemingway I think. Too bad, he sounds like a real sexist ass-hole.

  9. Sometimes it's good to just go with it, hide away, do the things that make you happy, and forget the world outside for a time. ♥

  10. The Oxford Book I have is The Oxford Book of English Ghost Stories: http://vraiefiction.blogspot.co.uk/2008/09/oxford-book-of-english-ghost-stories.html

    It made me discover so many authors.

    1. The Gothic one is making me feel like many of them are the same though. I think I felt the same about the Ghost Stories one.
