Reticent Mental Property

FEED My MIND: Adventure. Learn. Live. Write.



Change opens doors  to new beginnings….

but the turning of the knob,

the creaking of the hinge,

the stepping over the threshold without tripping

requires tender care of the heart,

attentiveness to each muscle’s


analyses of the physical and mental coordination


to manage the body with respect to another

passing through the same doorway,

in opposite direction;

each entering

-centering within-

the tomorrows

of very different worlds.


It was the slow loss of tenderness when fully aware of the speed of his indifference.

    A Ret, so very painful when it unfolds and there isn’t much one can do to change the outcome. A car crash watched in slo-motion — you know the conclusion and you cannot stop it.

    Indifference is indeed swift.

    The silence of indifference is absolute. It is the unshakable fogbound mind and soul. This is beautiful Ret, very hard truth.
