The Phantom
by WD

Over breakfast, I caught you looking at me strangely,

as if I were the Phantom of the Opera, and my mask

had just slipped.

I shuffled my newspaper, my fingers becoming stained with black ink and from the kitchen,
the stink of burning toast.

A saucer of milk formed
a yellow-skinned pudding while Pussy, sated, slept on his back,
needle teeth grinning through sweet black lips.

You mumbled, then rushed, you said,
to catch your bus. I kissed you goodbye with one eye open.

As I vacuumed the floor, a pipe organ fugue percolated through my own.

And afterwards,

after the screaming,
I stood for a moment looking down the vacuum cleaner hose.

I contemplated going back to bed.

I'm touched and impressed...you are a gifted poet. I wish I had the gift; it must be a powerful way of expressing and venting your feelings. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Very powerful, so richly phrased.
I can see the day as you describe it.

I like the analogy of the Phantom's mask, slipping, then.. one eye opened.

Thank you for asking. Some readers have speculated that he cat was sucked up by the vacuum cleaner, if you can imagine that. Rowwrr!

The scene is an ordinary little domestic scene, with unspoken, imploded pain and tension. The speaker observes that his/her partner is looking at them with some revulsion. There is the eagerness to interrupt intimacy and rush off to work. The kissing with one eye open hints at suspicion or lack of intimacy.

When our homemaker is alone, they vent their frustration and pain by screaming.

This is an interesting interpretation of the homemaker dilemma.

I wonder if this is why many wrap themselves around activity so intense as to clutter the mind from being able to voice itself in a scream.

workinonit,

It worked for me, for a while. But the cost, oh the cost!

I hope you are screaming now WD...it's really better to get this crap out.

I don't know if you saw my response on the other thread in support. You should check out Dan Millman's Way of the Peaceful Warrior and Journey of the Peaceful Warrior. Plus, he wrote a book on life paths. Which is about Numerology. I love this subject and would be happy to do your numbers for you. It may give you some insight. If you are comfortable with that, I will need the whole year too.

On the sixth day of the twelfth month in the one thousand, ninehundred and sixty first the year of Our Lord, at 535 am, I was born in Huntsville, Alabama, much to my chagrin.

Smuggled out in a suitcase, my parents wandered from contnent to continent, from equator to the north pole in search of a safe and nourishing environment for their 5 lb baby boy.

It took them seventeen years, but I finally landed here which is where I will remain until I return to the primordial chaos that spawned me. That is, unless some wealthy beauty cyber-seduces me to relocate.

Sorry, no money over here!! LOL

12/3/1961
Adding each number to the next you reach 26. Numerology calls for single digits unless, of course, there is a double digit #(master #) which in this case there is not. 2+6=8. Your equation is 26/8

The #2 is about balance. It is also indicative of your crowd comfort zone. You are probably more comfortable in a discussion one on one rather than a group situation. Many people with 2's appear to be codep(my opinion)

The 6 is inside of the equation, usually a number harder to reach by experience. It is indicative of family, care taking, marriage/divorce-relationships in general.

The 8 is your overall life path #. This tells me you are a person who is concerned with control/power. 8 is a power #. It is also significant for making money. Many people who have this in their life path either have no problems with money or, if they do exist seem to be able to attract the money easily.

I must tell you, I am glad you are a 26/8. 35/8 people scare me.

Feedback?

well, some people just give me 5/15. So I make sure they know I need the year.

Give me a few minutes and I'll post this for you.

Amanda,

5/15/1984 adding each number to the next comes to 33. This is a double digit number and considered a master number. Numerology likes a single digit solution so 3+3=6. Your equation is 33/6.

the master energy of 33 is sometimes very difficult to live with. This type of energy can be very high or very low. You are probably very social yet insecure. Very family and relationship oriented yet with difficulty. Calming master energy can be a tough task. Some people overdo substances and get involved with addictions. Some people though, learn to control the highs and lows and work the energy into achievement. You have a knack for making others feel welcomed and special. I know a guy who is a 33/6 and he can fall into a bucket of sh** and come out smelling like a rose!! LOL...

Do you recognise when your energy is higher than normal? If so, do you have creative outlets for this? I would suggest this as a way of manipulating your energy to your benefit.

There are many Numerology websites that can give you even more insight.

Feedback?

I do have extreme highs and lows.

I have been told that at times I am a 'pleasure to be with' then at times I am 'very difficult to even stand'

I do love people, I desire with my inner most being to be with someone. But it is difficult for me. I am always second-guessing.

Addictive personality? Yes. *LOL* I have said before that if it's not one thing, it's another.

I do love to make people feel special. (I think that I do it pretty well too!)

I can be having a horrible day, and hide it from everyone, including myself. (Hence the falling into the bucket of shit, and smelling like roses)

I do recognize my energies being higher than normal. Outlets? No... I was just diagnosed as Bi-Polar and put on meds.

The thing is, they have never seemed to help. Ever.

I do write. I love to listen to music. I talk to myself. I fantasize.

Do you have any suggestions for me?

Oh, and would you give me the website address please?

Thanks!

~Amanda~

Do any of you ever wonder if we would socialize if we were to run into one another in 'real life'?

Oh, by the way...

I love the 'Phantom of the Opera'

When I was a child I would watch an hour long cartoon classical music video of that story. Every single day. I haven't seen it in years, but I think I will go and pull the VHS out of my memory box, dust it off and watch it again. =)

http://www.decoz.com/Masternumbers.htm

This is one that deals specifically with master numbers. This author feels a master 33 is very rare and the date would have to be all master numbers to get this result. There is controversy over how numbers should be added to get results. I learned numerology from several differnt books and fell naturally into adding by the method I used. I have not found any problems with it in fact, I think this text is incorrect in this addition style. Just read the information and see what you think.

If you google Numerology or Master numbers numerology you will find many more sites to examine. Lots of fun too!

My ex is married to a woman who is bi-polar and a 33/6. Interesting.

Suggestions? Read a book called the Four Agreements. It will help you in relating to people and not be offended. It will also help you to be more sure of yourself. Try to find a hobby of some sort. Something that is just yours and doesn't involve helping others. It is fine to help but you may have a tendancy to over do it.

Keep writing and above all...be honest with yourself about your self! I have found that to be the best recipe for growth.
