-est no more.

There's an effort i've been trying to make off recent. The going aint that easy but the resistance is more external than internal, which, at least for me, makes the endeavor a tad easier. You see, the biggest fight is me against me. The world takes the cue from there.
It's a resolve to shun Superlatives, as much as i can. The urge to slot things/ relationships/ events/ feelings/ thoughts and almost any kind of experience that we undergo, into that one, which one rules the list, which overshadows all other of its kiln. To make a statement of such indomitableness that topping it would be next to impossible. Ever. And that's where i start getting uncomfortable.
I understand that a lot of times we pass such statements in an extreme state, good or bad. But how long does it stay? The status granted is as ethereal as that fleeting moment of unusual affairs. But the words remain. And live up to them, you have to. Expectations are created. And like their doomed fate, crashed and failed. Why start the whole cycle? Why not simply leave it to your deeds to declare what you feel? Why let the pedestals stand on the quicksand?
It's like 'never say never'. And that reminds of the song itself which goes by these words. The lyrics of which go like this:

Some things we don't talk about
better do without
just hold a smile
we're falling in and out of love
the same damn problem

together all the while
you can never say never
why we don't know when
time and time again
younger now then we were before
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go

picture, you're the queen of everything
as far as the eye can see
under your command
i will be your guardian
when all is crumbling
steady your hand

we're falling apart
and coming together again and again
we're coming apart
but we pull it together
pull it together, together again

don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go,
don't let me go...

The night seems set to release us, the drops fall and we fall with 'em.
