“Why are you so beautiful, do you think? So hungry? So able to bend the wills of those around you? You are like the death flowers that grow rampant in your wake: lovely to look at, intoxicating even, but get too close and you will soon learn that there is something rank beneath. That's what beauty often is, in nature. A warning. A disguise.”

John smokes grass, partakes in a little hash, but the LSD trips scare him. "You lose control," he tells Doc. "You lose it to find it," Doc says cryptically.

It isn't long before the other Association boys follow Doc's footsteps to Afghanistan and load cars, trucks, and vans up with hash. The most ingenious smuggling vessel, though, is the surfboard. One genius ships a board to Kandahar, hollows it out, and stuffs it with hash, because nobody at the airport knows what a surfboard is or, critically, how much it should weigh. And no one even asks what a guy is doing with surfboards in a place where there's no ocean.

Maybe goodbye is more than the epitome of the hurtful separation of two souls. More than the battle of wills that is letting go and the painstaking process of moving on. Maybe the word "good" in goodbye is there for a reason. Some endings carry something beautiful, don't you think? Something final. They're clean slates, a blank space, a new door opening after another one slammed shut. New beginnings. Sometimes they give you a chance to do better. To try again. And sometimes they're needed so so badly, even if we failed to see it before. There are some people who are no good for us and yet we can't imagine living without them. But once they're gone, it's alright. You'll realise they've been draining you, stealing your energy, and that you're better off without them. It hurts, of course it does, but all of a sudden you can breathe again. Maybe a week later, you'll be feeling as though a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. Maybe you won't feel it for a month or six or a year, but the relief is there. You'll walk taller, with your head held high, and just like that, the burden is gone. Sometimes an ending is the only thing that will give you peace. Perhaps right now you need the kind of distance only a goodbye can give you.
the good in goodbye / n.j.

Happy 4/20, folks! Today is the day!
My first poetry book, Twenty: A Line a Day, is now available on Amazon Kindle or Paperback!!
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B092P6ZM8F
Experience the ridiculous antics of my 20-year-old self through one line of poetry written every day for an entire year!
Each line peaks into the ups and downs, excitements and heartbreaks, trials, and tribulations that come with barging headfirst into your 20s.
Any reviews (especially on Amazon!) or points of constructive criticism are greatly appreciated and more than welcome!
This is just the beginning, folks! It can only get better from here!

20. Incredulous
They tell me not to read mythology and
believe aimlessly what is forever told.
Of the formation of this universe, the
chaos that metamorphed into the sun,
the stars, the planets, you and me. The
violent rage and act of defiance by
Amnon and his death acting as a deterra
-nce, probably the first where the crime
did someone free. Did you know of all the
Greek tragedy, my favorite is the one told
by Sophocles? It talks of love, honor, the
duty, oppression and tyranny as it unfolds.
They tell me not to read mythology and
believe aimlessly what is forever told.
I recall now that I once read, of woman so
strong, warriors she fed. Madhavi was her
name and she bore it with pride, she was
used as a fortune by them. Alas, it was
written by men. Forever, I did try to find the
genesis of his highness Macbeth or of
Sisyphus, who twice cheated death. If you
close your eyes, you can hear poor Orpheus'
lore.
They tell me not to read mythology and
believe aimlessly what is forever told.
When they ask me to believe, I do often
gather, the four horsemen making their way
to end the world, but I'd take hurricanes and
tsunamis rather. Fearless as they are, it's the
women who call me from the narrative they
are written in, always longing to be at par.
The mightiness of the men, their heroism is
at what the story is often sold.
They tell me not to read mythology and
believe aimlessly what is forever told.

When The Stars Go Dark by Paula McLain
When The Stars Go Dark by Paula McLain
“It’s never as black and white as you think in these case. Sometimes victims seek out their abusers just as intensely as they’re pursued.” e-book Synopsis Anna Hart is a seasoned missing persons detective in San Francisco with far too much knowledge of the darkest side of human nature. When overwhelming tragedy strikes her personal life, Anna, desperate and numb, flees to the Northern…
