voice (themes)

what is different about my story? what does my voice sound like? what are the recurring elements in my story? how are these things my own?

 

fire
butterflies
owls
tattoos
R
J and T
cars
depression
writing
poetry
God
love
moving forward
feeling alive
favorite songs
places i’ve been
books
buses and bus stops
colors
experiences
scars
intimacy
fear
anxiety
people
communication

 

they do not manifest the same in another’s life as they do in mine. no one feels the same as i do. my experiences are uniquely my own. even if you were there, it was not the same for you as it was for me. maybe your heart broke, but your heart is not mine, so how could they ever have broken in the same fashion? your eyes may have seen it all, but they are not my eyes, so they have not seen what i have seen. your fingers have traced skin, but they don’t feel the way mine do. the books i’ve read sit on your shelf, but i did not read those that your fingers thumbed thru. your lips have kissed, but we’ve never known the same kiss, the same moment. you have caused pain, but it was not mine to feel. i have written words that weren’t yours to read, but i gave them away. i no longer notice some whose voices aren’t important to me, yet others i read their every word and wish i knew what to say. so, i’ll sit here and try to find my voice.
