Locked-In Syndrome

I fear being locked in.
Not inside my room, nor inside yours with you upon me.
But the fear of being locked inside this body,
Still alive but not being able to talk, walk or even…

How does it feel to be trapped inside your own skin?
Medical footnote:
Locked-in syndrome is a rare neurological disorder characterized by complete paralysis of voluntary muscles in all parts of the body (except for those that control vertical eye movement). It may result from traumatic brain injury, vascular diseases, demyelinating diseases, or medication overdose.

Individuals with locked-in syndrome are conscious and have cognitive function, but are unable to speak or move. The disorder leaves the patient completely mute and paralyzed. Communication may be possible only with blinking eye movements.

There is no cure for locked-in syndrome, nor is there a standard course of treatment. Functional neuromuscular stimulation may help activate some paralyzed muscles. Several devices to help communication are available. Other treatment is symptomatic and supportive.

The prognosis for those with locked-in syndrome is poor. The majority of patients do not regain function.

#100 - Sending light signals for the alien

100 ideas lighter,
Feel a century more mature with the people I've come to know.

I haven't learnt how to build a shuttle perhaps,
Yet it's a joyful experience to be launching a blog into space!
Twilight is fading through, seems like I'm fading too.
Have you ever bumped into the same insane sense?

Exactly 25 years since the flaw

We are born when fathers' financial miscalculations
lead to lowered preventive measures late one month.
25 years later looking at my image in the mirror
I sign a contract with a promise to myself to cut this vicious cycle.
I'll start my own piggy bank today in order to save humanity!
Save the world, make it a better place for us & the undelivered babies...

History is there to teach us what not to do!
Act now before it's too late.
Just a birthday note. Nothing serious ;-)

Hips don't lie but words?

Love is a euphemism for Libido the mute lad shouted.
Liking is the stronger & more honest path to glory.
Then the nice priest gave him a Mona Lisa smile
took the last three letters in the new defined love
and announced them husband and wife.

Safe home tonight (part 1)

I am exhausted honey.
Have just spent a great deal of energy
pushing the button to launch the Cruise.
I am not suffering from PTSD though
It was just another ordinary day
A safer day for humanity
Less O2-H2O consumers my dear
A better day for Rex, Tommy & all other pets.

Play me the piano or the violin ma cherie.
Hand me a pack of Marlboro Lights in the bedroom & a can of refreshing Coke s'il te plait.
No Pepsi but Coke
Not due to it’s fame although it clears my burning tears
Nor due to disappointing Beyonce or Jennie
But for the fact that it’s can is red
Red like diamonds, red like oil or perhaps as red as gold, Red like…
I am not suffering from PTSD though, no I am not.
It was just another ordinary day...

Formally Serving Bananas

The monkey finished reading the Planet of the Apes script
Glanced through the Darwinian evolution image in front of him
And lifted his head to watch the people making the headlines on CNN
He took his pen and completed the cycle by drawing the reverse path
Then staring at his achievement he mumbled;
"Hallelujah we are back in command!"

No (U-2 + 2nd vowel + Y's left neighbor) Alert

My fellow XX
Send your children to bed early.
Only two nights left to the 4 week XY international shut down!

Don't Be Shy Honey, Shake Hands...

The preplexed monkey surfed through his brain;
Politics with its complexities even at it’s highest levels resembles childhood games. Actions tend to differ due to unreasonable logic. The perfect instance is the famous/notorious Iranian-American relationship. Two countries of major importance for their political & geographical status are in long-term dispute while it is obvious to both parties that developing a direct connection and by-passing the third party countries, is to their benefit if not the only solution left. But there exist some obstacles.

Ever since the monarchy of America-dependent Shah was overthrown in Iran in 1979 & the American embassy hostage taking saga occurred, both countries have been throwing a vast variety of accusations at each other just like two kindergarteners swearing and cursing each other after an argument. But this little argument has not stopped for 27 years now & strangely enough has an augmented idiopathic intensity comparing to the original nucleus. However in this world of ours that every second counts, it takes a fool not to recognise that the core problem has long been forgotten and both countries have since then evolved. Therefore it is crystal clear that new measures are to be taken accordingly.

When Americans imposed sanctions on Iran & then fueled Iraqi tanks for an invasion to the country, they had high hopes which never blossomed. The force was to break the resistance but they didn’t know that their counterparts were as stubborn as they were. Iran went under 8 years of destructive war but was still determined not to talk to the child down the block. Instead Iran, with its huge Oil reserves and second largest natural gas reserves, turned towards Europeans & this new player eagerly decided to play along & took advantage of the situation. America lost a big energy supply, the strategically important region & a possible ally, while Iran lost a powerful ally and went under economical damage due to purchasing the essentials from third parties for an over-extra price.

Now both countries see the need to establish a link but their massive challenge remains to be facing their own nations & convincing them that the monster they’ve created over the last 27 years was fake or better yet, is now tamed. Like children who have lied to their parents about this super nasty kid in their school but now want to make friends again. The ironic part is that they still publicly denounce each other with Axis-Of-Evil replacing Iran’s name in memories in McDonald land and cries of “down with U.S.A” being heard every Friday in the land of the newest Yellow-cake-club member.

There is a skeptical theme to the relation at the presence due to the fact that they have both diverted their fondness towards each other in the form of anger since they are both too shy to step forward and yet expect the other to show a sign first. The strong sense of pride in both countries is among other factors exacerbating the condition. It can also be related to a mental defensive mechanism of ours called “Projection” where an individual blames others for his own fault and makes himself to believe it’s real.

Can the men in Limousines find the secret connection-code? Can they rescue the situation and establish a link? Or will anger, temper & the child in them get the better of the situation? We’ll have to wait and see on the next exciting episode of Want-to-be-F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (With no Jennifer Anniston)

The monkey amazed by the number of words he had vomitted, feeling 30 kg or so lighter, regurgitated what was left in his mind and went to his bedroom to watch Garfield dance.

Dial 4-5683-968

Obviously she has found out I am cheating on her.
I've been sleeping with her two best pillows
at the same time while she was away.
Now she wants to break up for the sake
of the children we were to breed & raise together!
