Hideaway

Hideaway | Short Prose Random Specific Thoughts

Living in the moment is an adventure in itself!

Sometimes when it’s too sunny that the rays penetrate my skin and the heat burns my soul, when it’s too cold that the world outside is hauntingly heartless, I run away. The day is gentle and the rising noise of life heralds the start of a new memory.

To a world of my making where there are plenty of hardcovers, wooden floors that click with every step, a sun that never stops shining and a home that never stops welcoming.

There is life in the air and a sort of damp atmosphere soaked with smiles and dripping down on all outside, the moisture warm against their skin.

Every point is the centre of a circle, a corner of a square, the beginning of infinity and we are here and there, everywhere and nowhere. A mathematical impossibility but a reality we live everyday.

A world that shelters so many runaways, a safe haven that houses plenty of lost wanderers. I can see so many paths leading to hideaways as unique as the explorers. There’s a street lamp that’s barely glowing, a faint wisp of light battling to be seen through the fog that clouds my vision and envelopes me in its cold grasp.

It’s immaculate a moment to realise how the race never ceases. Each second is a trip down memory lane as your hideaway shows you objects that induces memories you never knew you had – a binocular, a lone shoe and a pencil too short to use.

Fireworks light up the sky as I head back home and I’m reminded of how we can literally create light no matter how short-lived it is, how hope is an entity that never dies and just how much of a wonderful, marvelous beautiful idea it is to live and soak in the moment.

The present is my hideaway with all the glories of uncertainty.

Thoughtfully yours,
D

  2. This piece is simultaneously one of the rawest things I’ve ever read, while also being incredibly polished and just PERFECT.
    “Every point is the centre of a circle, a corner of a square, the beginning of infinity and we are here and there, everywhere and nowhere. A mathematical impossibility but a reality we live everyday.” These lines are beautiful, D… all the sentences you write are so powerful. <3333333

  5. In the present
    are we
    among other
    in a drama
    entangled

    remembering
    belongs to the time
    the deserted day

    the light as bright as day
    can be tedious
    burn from its heat

    that the world
    us without
    getting confused at reality itself

    we the center
    in the microcosm
    of the universe should be

    to the
    real life
    we are essential
    a line in the book of life

    every subjective moment
    holds the inner world
    in the mirror of the outside world

    we don’t turn on the light
    the electric ones
    Nerve tracts
    supply the brain

    to live the unity
    is the child’s wish
    back to paradise
    without the judgment
    to venture between bad and good

    who wants the fame for himself
    can’t hide
    he wants to the public light of day
    to be seen

  7. This is so beautifully written. I never thought of the present as being a place to hide and to find comfort. But now that I have some health issues, each day is a blessed hideaway where I can pause, regroup, and carry on. This spoke directly to me, dear.
