She Left the Planet

She jumped off a bridge into the middle of traffic in North Seattle this morning. She has lingered in my heart all day. I don’t know her name, what she looked like, if she had children or a husband, family, had ever felt love or had someone hug her.

And that makes me sad.

I see people in stores, brows furrowed in seeming anger, faces down trodden. I smile at strangers. Occasionally its reciprocated. Most times it’s met with a look of confusion.

We’re so disconnected our eyes no longer meet. We don’t share smiles.

I wonder how many people passed her today. I wonder if anyone smiled at her or met her eyes. I wonder if one person had, if she still would have walked to that bridge.

To the woman who left the planet today. I feel your human suffering. I know you’re being loved now.

    1. I felt her freedom. She was off to be loved. This journey was too much for her. I do think of those left behind who witnessed the event and cleaned the aftermath? But her? She’s blissfully in the Cosmos now. love yous back, cc 💖

  1. sorry i didn’t get your reply…yeah, me too. sometimes i dont think so. sometimes i wish in my heart they could. i always feel deep sadness when i hear about it tho. sometimes i very much think most times someone could have. always hear if u need a friend chick. you know where. sometimes a stranger who understands is easier. not that i am in any way considering myself a stranger. that would be being rude to myself. yo. -alex


    1. I know what it is like to be suicidal, and I believe that exhaustion is the number one force; exhaustion of the pain; exhaustion of the situation; exhaustion of the shame; the fear. So when I hear these stories, and I do not watch/listen to the news much, it hits me deep. Just for some reason, this particular female, I could feel her – in an Empath way. I felt her spirit yesterday very strongly, even saw into her life. I can’t explain that, and I don’t need to. I accept that I had the experience, and possibly she needed to pass through the worm hole with someone loving her energy.

      1. Yes, I totally agree. I definitely think exhaustion becomes the key. I have been so close myself. Me, being CC.

        No, you don’t have to explain it to anyone, although I understand what you are saying. I’m glad if it helped her. I hope you are ok.

        Always sending love, if you want it. 🙂 I hope you got that, no inflection or facial expression in text.
