never knowing.
flash fiction makes a comeback


thought up last night whilst locked out in a town twenty minutes away, drinking alcohol we weren't supposed to have, realising how very limited our knowledge is until we learned something we shouldn't

Unfortunately, knowing isn't always that great. Take it from a guy whose whole life revolves around acquiring knowledge from books. To me the most terrifying thing in the world is helplessness.

but compulsively collecting knowledge is a (maladaptive) coping skill, so that assuages some of the fear, in a way. i'd rather know too much than not enough, i think

I agree with you there. Sometimes, I wish I knew everything. However, I don't think that would make anything any easier. If anything, everything would be harder to cope with.

I'm just curious. How do I go about making a link to a poem in my gallery?

I agree. However, in some moments, ignorance is such a wonderful bliss.

i don't think i ever have agreed with that, but i'm also the person who would like to be hurt if there's any reason to be hurt

True. The essence of fear is the endless confusion and mystery behind it.

The most freeing thing in the world ... accepting I do know.

i'd rather know and have it be devastating than never knowing
