Yumm!

Iridescent

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
You build up hope, but failures all you've known.
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go.
Let it go.

Natural history of boredom.

Don't want to be in a relationship.

I'm crazy about you.

In a complicated relationship.

I love you.

It's not enough.

Don't want to be in this relationship.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which an unskilled person makes poor decisions and reaches erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to realize their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence: because competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. "Thus, the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others."

Crawling

"It's easy to fall into that thing — 'poor, poor me', that's where songs like 'Crawling' come from: I can't take myself. But that song is about taking responsibility for your actions. I don't say 'you' at any point. It's about how I'm the reason that I feel this way. There's something inside me that pulls me down."

Chester Bennington, Linkin Park.

sTrapped

stirred again, the urges surge
rising above the rest
and old demons re-emerge
at his rash behest
their insane impulsive fire
searing from within
burns the serpent of desire
crawling 'neath the skin
scraping it, cutting it
making it bleed
and a monstrous fit
is what a monster needs

starved, bled, weakened
to the bedposts, strapped
the monster left alone
is a monster trapped

Like dams.

Sometimes, the floodgates have to let go.
Then, we fill again.
And then, we stand strong and still again.

Potential wins?

Missed opportunities, actually.
