He’s not Really Heavy: He is my Brother; I Can Manage.

 

“You ain’t heavy; I got ya Bro’. Hang in.”

“How Do You Hold A Moonbeam In Your Hand?”

Here is a no shitter story:

I talked to my “ever-so-cool” step-sister Madelyn, back in the Seventies about this song.

She said to me,

“Lance, what does this song mean to you?”

I said (thirteen years old), I said, “It’s about some dude carrying his brother out of a war zone in a desert, and some guy comes up and says, ‘Is he heavy?'”

And the dude says, “No. He’s my brother.”

Madelyn shook her head while letting out a heavy sign and then just left me there, all alone, wondering why I was not cool.

“Heavy” had some subliminal meaning in the Seventies

****

Finally!

I have been made ‘whole’ again.

My initial Instincts validated.

Wishing my Belov’d Madelyn were still here.

So I could show her what I found (Purely by accident) today.

Missing her.

Dear Madelyn, See? I was cool all along.”

Madelyn!

I MISS YOU SO MUCH!

I WILL ALWAYS BE YOUR BROTHER

(Update 2021: Now she’s Dead.)

And my heart is forever broken.

(I never got the chance to demonstrate to her how ‘cool’ I had become…)

This is a PAIN FROM WHICH I CANNOT WALK AWAY

I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU,

NOW & FOR-EVERMORE

Madelyn!

MY SISTER

MY FOREVER SISTER!

(Yeah. We (Madelyn and Me)

Were Stars…

In The ‘Sound of Music.’

*******************************

My Sister Madelyn made that same promise to me.

I’m still tryin’ to fulfill it for her.

(And for me.)

Happy Friday/Saturday/Munday/Wed-less Day,  or what-ever-the fuck day today is.

Times and Days and Ways have lost their Meaning for ME.

Simply because I have cast my “Sanity” to the curb–don’t need it–it was serving no useful purpose.

I truly do not care what day today is and certainly do not care what time it is.

“Should I try to do some more?”

“Naw.”

“Take a Break.”

“Take a break away from yourself–you’ve properly earned it.”

–That is an orig “Lance Quote”–I did NOT steal it, as I have all the others.
