We all need a good come down.
That is the moment when you have to hit the bottom. Sometimes for no other reason than to feel it. Like when you watch a sad movie just to make you sad. The come down is what makes the high points so sweet. The laughs so deep.
In a recent situation, we were in a perfect bubble we created. No fighting. The emotions were so strong but in the best way. You sweat when you think the other one is hurting. You get comfortable when you lay in bed. Plans are made in the future, thinking about calendars in 2016. What would we do next?
We don’t know the people in 2016. Who we will be then. And as perfect as all can seem, don’t we all get itchy feet? That settling feeling is the come down. The come down is when the world hits you and you slide down the wall to the floor. Arms too heavy to move. Arms tired from holding on. There is the intoxication, the high about the good times, but we find out more about ourselves in the come down. In the highs, your brain is foggy with joy and thoughts and nothing heavy. The come down is when the gravity hits. The world suddenly spins on its back and lets you flipand the heavy fog sets back in.
It’s just a come down. Calm down. The remix from Hi-Life does just that. The raspy vocals of Monkey Safari, the ability to sway to it. Not the feeling of a come down, but some place where you feel content. Not the high and not the come down. The limbo of life.
