Tangled & Rusty

I have been feeling it for quite some time now
This dark swirling thing deep inside me
It may be chemical, emotional, psychological
Definitely spiritual
I am impatient for it to be gone
Hopefully forever
But I know these dark swirlies come
And stay for as long as they like
Like some unwanted guest
And one can only hope
For it not to break too many things
For it not to create too much irrepairable damage
For it to leave as quietly as it came
So one can finally say:

Adios. Hasta la vista, baby!

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer."
Rainer Maria Rilke
