I saw a thread on Twitter recently, asking for people to post their last "normal" photo before lockdown. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was mine. Stumbled across two days before starting to work from home, when I'd spent almost two hours walking around Central London trying to fulfil the fruitless task of finding toilet roll for my work location [insert humungous LOL here].
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lessons, and the wisdom of the World - it's everywhere if you pay attention.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They say we should try and find small moments of joy right now. And I've got one. Because one of the things I decided to just go for, was to leave that job. In the middle of a pandemic. By choice.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today was my last day.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I managed to secure a new job within a fortnight of resigning. But it's precisely because of the Coronavirus and all of its humongous knock-on effects, that I don't think it's something I have the right to feel joyous about.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The timing was less than ideal I know, but everything within me couldn't imagine going back to that "normal". Not having lived through lockdown. Not knowing the feelings of discontent had been bubbling way before Covid dominated every headline. Not thinking "not this" before every commute.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know it's not always as simple as 'just going for' anything. I mean, the three years prior - before I even took that job - spent sorting out my finances, allowed me to take that calculated risk in the moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What I'm trying to say is, even if it does take a while, require some pre-work, or even if you can't act in the moment, still tune in and listen. And when you can, you should ALWAYS go for it.

title: au revoir | 📝: May 20th 2019

Au revoir

You came,
Showed me a window of my soul.

Helped me to see the places that needed fixing.
But then you take it,

shattered them to the ground.
There laid the hopes and dreams.

Was it about anything,
Or will it even matter?

And i'll keep the sight of reflection close at heart.

I have been found,
So, now you're job is done.

And as you go, I'll take away the memories and tears,
Lock it in a box and throw away the key.

Forgive you, forgive myself;
let go and forget.

It may took a while, a minute or a lifetime.

But it has been long overdue.
Time to bid my farewell,
and say goodbye.

It has been a burden,
It has been a release.

Sometimes things were meant to happen,
And never meant to be understood.

Now, whatever come what may.
Au revoir.
C'est la vie.

ii. 
You are mad.
You never used to get mad-
Or at least,
Would slip on the gentle mask,
You were good at disguises.
Like dress-up, like the time I
Painted your nails and hid the 
Polish remover.
Wish I could scrub away you just as easy.
With acetone and a couple of cotton pads,
I’d banish you.

iii.
I have tried.
Tried to wipe you away,
Abstain from thinking of you-
Turns out that I can’t.
Turns out that all it gets me is
You, coming back,
Ten times the force,
Years down the line
And we’re here.

iv.
I may not see you in person,
‘Cept when I think I do,
But I dream of you,
Sometimes.
I always wake up wanting to cry,
The tears that won’t fall from my eyes
Shed from my skin instead.
I wick away sweat,
Take several deep breaths,
And try to forget.

v.
Forgetting is the worst thing I still do,
‘Cause at the end of the day there’s still gonna be you.
I think as long as you’re living,
I’m gonna live in fear.
Maybe when you die your ghost will live here.
Until that day,
I’ll see you in my sleep.

vi.
Sometimes there are others that I know.
Sometimes when you show,
I can’t separate you from my world now.
I don’t know how,
I see you and I can’t tell if it’s
Before, or after,
I just know my dream’s a disaster,
I’m scared.

vii.
You scare me.
I don’t want to see you,
I close my eyes again.
And then I realise that,
Awake or not,
Eyes open or not,
You are here.
At least with eyes open I can 
Scan the room for your presence.

viii.
The scariest of all
Are the times where I feel what I felt, before.
Before it happened.
Before I left.
Before I remembered.
Care. Then pity.
Then some uneasy inkling that something’s not right,
I fight to realise but it won’t come to mind.

ix.
Looking back, I should have known.
But maybe should is just hope, with nowhere to go.

x. 
I don’t know what’s worse-
Not knowing, and still knowing that it’s not as it seems,
Or knowing and living in this tragedy.
I guess I won’t sleep again tonight,
But that’s alright.
I’ll tell myself I’m not tired.
Like I told myself there wasn’t anything wrong.
