April 21


Deciding to lose 
the parts of her she didn't like,
she minimized expression,
smiled without showing teeth,
then disappeared into nothing.

It feels like when in a spousal argument I think "fine. I won't say anything" and though it feels good at first as I close everything down and shut people out, I sense my chance at happiness disappearing.

p.s. I am really enjoying Na Po Mo! Love it!

Well put, Cerissa.

TOTALLY!! I couldn't have put it better. And, why do I continue to try the disappearing happiness approach?! Love your perspective.
