Life is passing me by...

Life is passing me by. I feel it. I want to fix it but all I can do is acknowledge it, be aware it's there but not know what the hell to do with it. It demands to be felt, this feeling of emptiness, this thought that I'm waiting, just waiting. I don't know what I'm waiting for but, I wait nonetheless.


 Life is passing me by. I feel it. I am merely existing. I'm not living. I wake up, I take a piss and I feel the same familiar sense of dread drown my lungs. I wake, only because the sun streaks through the window and demand I rise. I work, only because we are in this prison, this programme, this unacknowledged knowledge we squeeze to the back of our minds, this slave trade of work till we die, struggle, find it hard to make ends meet. Wish the days away to go home to empty walls, houses that aren't homes and feel comforted only by the very same emptiness we long to escape from.

I eat because my body demands it, because of the hunger pains my stomach. I do not feel my mouth water at the thought of it, I don't salivate at the thought of it brushing my lips.  I chew and I chew and I chew and every bite becomes more and more impossible, more difficult. The burden of it all makes me feel sick. I taste nothing but feel the difficulty in forcing it down. 

I feel exhausted with the day to day charade. I feel dead before I've even lived. I question the point, why we eat just to shit it right back out, why we indulge in pleasure only to feel the greed of craving more when it doesn't satisfy, why we are possessed by the notion that only things can make us feel happy.

Life is passing me by. I feel it. I'm surrounded by people, this swarm of noise and sweat and being but I feel alone, blocked off by an invisible barricade. A framed glass. I'm here but I'm not. I speak but I'm unheard. I'm wishing the days away and dreading the coming mornings. I've fallen into this mundane routine of nothingness and I'm tired of it.

Life is passing me by. I feel it. I've been feeling it a lot. This weight. This pang of jealousy.

This longing. I feel like I'm someone's character in a video game but they can't reach past Level 1, the game keeps crashing. I'm stuck in this cycle, this loop of eat, sleep, feel shit, repeat.

That feeling, that irritating niggle won't abandon. It refuses to dissipate because I can't keep it satisfied. It crouches in the corner of my mind, a dull humdrum that I can't block out, a ringing in my ears that makes my face screw up, a heaviness in my heart that makes me feel so empty.
The hunger needs to be fed, the thirst, quenched. This big black fog is choking me.  

Life is passing me by, I feel it.

  1. It is with great gratitude that I write this to you today. I thank God I found you. You are an amazingly gifted person. Never before have I met or heard of anyone with such an uncanny ability to help others. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help. I will be forever grateful to you. I came to you at a time when I was having severe financial problems of losing my house,car,and not having any furniture. I lost everything and my family was suffering living in squalor and in extreme poverty. I had a Nursing license but I was injured on the job and had Head Trauma and could not work anymore. My husband's work hours were cut and we have two children and we sometimes had no food as we were living pay check to pay check. I called upon Mama Hope for her help and she came through for us . Thank you Mama ,we will be forever grateful to you for all your help. Many Blessings are wished to you for helping me,when I was down and out and destitute. I send you my Love. Don't struggle silently call/whatsapp Mama +27635876438 . If you are going through any struggles , I recommend that you visit this spell caster Mama Hope +27635876438 . We are a very happy family today. I wish you all the best of luck and hope you will make the same testimony one day.

  2. I came a cross some testimonials on a website about a very sound love spiritual healer and she was talked by most people on her loving, good work and on how she has helped lots of people in bringing back their ex lovers within a few days, Sincerely I was just thinking if that was real and if this woman could really help bring back my lover whom I love so much. I decided to contact her because I love my Husband very much and we have been apart for a couple of months, I tried so much to move on but it was hard I love my husband sometimes I could see him in my dreams and l wake up thinking he would come but nothing, I used to sms him but no response calling him he never picked my calls and finally blocked all my numbers not even to support the kids. I really missed him so much, I tried all other means to get him back but couldn't. I contacted Dr Mama Tina and she told me that my ex will come back to me in the next few days and that he will never break my heart. Dr Mama Tina released him and opened up his mind to know how much l loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have shared together and only after a few days l got a call from him asking for my forgiveness upon him with a tender voice, at that moment l felt so touched and emotional of him and my love for him, so we all started crying together and l forgave him, my Husband is now back to me again. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest woman on earth and me and my Husband we are living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it was even before our break up. All thanks goes to Dr Mama Tina for the excessive work that she has done for me by helping me to get back with my ex Husband. I would like to drop Mama Tina's contact and hope you see this testimony and contact her if you have a lover that you really want back so badly or any problem you are experiencing now because she is the only one that can help you Tell:+27673788758.(call her or whatssapp)
