Still a koala??

I have always related to that picture where a koala is wrapped around a tree embedding itself into the bark.

Imagine that tree is my friends or people close to me.

That’s how i have always been.

Parting always felt like my skin and flesh had become part of that tree and everytime I moved on I felt I lost some layers of me.

Life is harder for clingy people like me.

I wrote a post long ago about this koala situation.

But things have changed now I guess.

I have lost too many layers.

There are no more skin or flesh to lose.

Just bones tangles between a mess of veins caging the organs.

Just a no-frills engine.

Do I feel pain? Yes.

Does it hurt when I lose someone? Yes.

Do I feel I won’t be able to live? A big NO!

I don’t feel like that koala anymore.

With all my tenacity stripped I don’t even have arms to wrap around a tree.

Am I turning into a selfish person? I don’t know.

The fear of losing a tree, a person, a possession, skin and flesh or heart and mind..everything has dissolved into the core of oblivion.

Like life being engulfed by the black hole gradually when you were busy mourning your loses.

  1. I have thought of myself as a koala. Kind cute, seemingly harmless but if threatened, I will cut you like I am shredding a bamboo tree and leaves for my supper. 😉

    I am still looking for my tree to hug and anchor me but with all my allergies, I’d likely just get tree hives…J/k.
