    Woo-woo, I know. But I'll post it anyway as a potential toehold on the rock face you're navigating.
    It's a lovely notion. But alas, it is not my situation. This is something else. Right now I'm at the point bluecastle was referring to. Where I'm holding out a vestige of hope for a breakthrough that will be a magic fix. As in, "If she will just share with me what she's feeling/thinking, it will all get better". But that is probably not the case. But I have to try. I currently have love in my life with a person who is good. There's a lot of people who don't. And she is someone I care for. I'm not at the point yet where I'm ready to throw it away. But I am reaching it. That song by Smokey Robinson comes to mind. "I'm just about at the end of my rope. But I can't give up trying. I can't give up hope". Although Smokey is singing about a woman who won't take him back, but still, that's where I'm at right now. I just have to work my way through it.

    Yeah, I hear you. You know it's "something else" when what is inaccessible is a source of discomfort. That's when the head starts working overtime to feed the malnourished heart. What's in there? Is it what I need? Is it nothing? Was it all a fantasy? Am I crazy? Is she/he crazy? You're slipping around at the edge of that rabbit hole, not a fun a spot. But you've lived, you'll know when it gets too slippery for you.
