I’ve been a creative writer for over 20 years. I’m not sure that I’m much good at it, but it provides a cathartic release. For me, it’s a method of soul detoxification, expelling the old waste, making room for new life.
I don’t trust easily. I’ve been fooled before. Deception is scarring to the victim; it writes on the previously-clean slate of who that person is, and that person is never the same again. Innocence is not only lost, but shattered.
I wrote this a number of (seven) years ago. Obviously, I didn’t know that I was on the spectrum then. But my unawareness doesn’t mean that I wasn’t 🙂
Some of you are familiar with my creative writing style, in that I write my own “lyrics” to existing songs.
This piece was written to the song “Into Dust”, a beautiful, simple, elegant, and haunting song by Mazzy Star. The video (studio version, not live) on YouTube can be found here. and the audio-only file can be found here (source: SoundCloud). I highly recommend taking a listen; it will probably bring a fuller meaning to the writing. 🙂
The writing doesn’t match up perfectly with the song; however, the music describes perfectly what I was feeling when I wrote this.
Thank You for reading! 🙂
