Caution Icarus

icarus

Caution-This post has informal, lucid and inappropriate language.

The fact remains that for human life to exist you need to socialise;to drink coffee and date (according to some). I clearly do not agree with the last one. Why is it so important; it is irritating to begin with,the idea of it. Plus in the normal crude way “I do not give a shit”.
Then again yes I believe you are capable as a human being of loving people

; then why not just get hitched or live in; or whatever nonsense you believe in. Just do not go around (doing stuff). You might just get syphilis. The idea of far from getting frustrated over relationships,over an insensitive partner.
Why is it so hard for people to stay calm and either enjoy their relationships or stay single and not just lie in-between,dangling (weird- word-usage) . Why do you have to get dark circles and have endless discussions. I believe “just put a ring on it” or die! perish!

You must have read about Icarus,whose father Daedalus makes him wing out of feathers and wax and warns him not to fly too close to the Sun or the Sea; and then we know what happens. But,interestingly two poets W.H Auden in Musee des Beaux Arts and William Carlos Williams in Landscape with Fall of Icarus , use Ekphrasis (poems responding to visual artefacts) ,so these two poets hang out ,have coffee and discuss “Lets use Bruegel’s ‘Landscape with the Fall of Icarus’,in which Bruegel is ruining Icarus’s moment of attention, let us do the same with our words what Bruegel did with his brush”. The plan was perfect and they did execute it particularly different styles. According to my skills of deconstruction, they got really pissed off with Icarus trying to obsess and ignore his father’s advice. Why was it so hard for Icarus to stay calm with his wings and not unite with the burning Sun or the lonely Ocean, why could not he be happy with his situation. The fact is like Icarus,we devils want to “unite” (pun intended) or cry about being “alone”,we just cannot stay happy or stable ,we tend to possess those free electrons which kill us (read-not me) into dating or doing crappy stuff. Hello! only if Icarus had this sense of flying in the calm air of stability,where he could consider either going to the Sun or landing on the brown soil;would have saved him from the ocean at least .
Now, what do you mean?

Well, search for stability and peace, do not kill yourself. If you are happy with the one. High Five.
If you are searching- stay calm and patient and if you feel terrible -do not rush into things like Icarus did;that only results in stomach ulcers and tears.

The idea is to love the Sun, love soil and stay away from the Ocean.

So, Shake It Off!
(great! too many metaphors)
The above writing was a result of a conversation with a friend -who is currently in the ocean.
