What have you learnt about this person during your one year on the blog?
What have you learnt that you know for sure?
What do we know for sure?
I learnt that you're preoccupied with trivialities of the most trivial sort, Vanessa.
You like being preoccupied like that. It stops you from thinking.
I mean, there's no need to go do charity work in Sudan if all you're worried about is eight pounds of fat on your belly.
You're not immortal.
You're not compelling.
You're not the centre of it all.
You're not even necessary.
You surprised me when you found out you can't deal with routine.
Can't open letters, answer the phone, answer the door
Well, on bad days, anyway.
Because you've stubbed yourself out
dug yourself in
on a life filled with routine,
and somehow you think that's going to save you
I learnt that there's more rage than you think in there.
That even if you put a lid on it,
We can hear it echo.
I learnt that you can't deal well with music any more.
Listening to music means you can't hide.
I learnt that you have more issues than you realise.
I learnt that there's a lot of emotion wrapped in a sarcastic shell.
That your evasions and lies are all too believable.
That you're scared. Of being alone.
That you're scared. Of being with others.
That you're hard on yourself, expect to solve things just like that.
There's a symbiotic relationship going on, but unfortunately it's only with your own sleep rate.
You're pretty convinced that you like the parts of your life that trap you
But you worry that your usual tendency to sell yourself short
Sold that to you.
You hid things from a lot of people
It's almost second nature.
But you don't hide yourself. Openness is all very well
If you can articulate what's wrong.
There's this big sore area of red that you daren't go near
And as well: you're ashamed.
What do I know for sure?
Just the shame.
But that's not knowing. That's a cop out.
Exaggerated emotion for reader effect.
What have you learnt?

"jude, you'll never guess where I am
yeah, well they have a sign on the door - have you seen it
it says "admittance will be denied to anyone improperly dressed"
yeah, well I've just realised I'm not wearing any knickers - wouldn't it be funny if I got thrown out"
