i don't grieve over strangers. it's a sad story to me, but i never listened to him before he died. i always thought he was scary, and while appreciating the musical aspect on the instruments. since listening to him since he died,..i'm not impressed with his lyrics any more than i ever was and i find some of the things i'm reading about him to be frightening. i'm reading about him probably because of his connection with a certain person more than any other reason. I don't mean to be heartless. It's a sad thing and I don't understand why he was left alone in that place on his last nite. But I knew nothing about him, cause I thought he was creepy all my life. him and the rolling stones are two people i would NOT listen to. I really think he made his own decisions about how to live his life, and that they caused his death, so I don't think there's anything anyone could have done to stop him. It's sad, and he's my age, and people my age are kinda dropping like flies.

RESOLUTION (Prince)

Come with it

.

The main problem with war
Is that nobody ever wins
The next generation grows up

And learns how to do it all over again

.

No matter who started the argument
Just matters how each one ends

How many people really want resolution?

.

The main problem with people
Is they never do what they say

One minute they want peace

Then do everything to make it go away

.

Dropping bombs on each other
In the act of saving face

Tell me now, people, how is that resolution?

.

Either you do or you don't
Either you will or you won't
Making amends is a difficult pill to swallow

.

What can we lose if we try?
With no water, a flower dies
With love in the lead, resolution will follow

.

Oh yes, it will
Resolution
Oh yeah

.

Love is like a circle
No beginning and no end
A broken heart will mend
If you love it like your best friend

.

Handle your heart with care
It's as delicate as a whim
When the storms come again
Pray for resolution

.

Either you will or you won't
Either you do or you don't
Will you want resolution?

.

Either you will or you won't
Come on everybody
All over the world
All over the world
Tell me, how many people really want resolution?

Hi all. I'm new here. Have been reading and decided to sign up. I'm so glad someone posted this thread. Very healthy to be vulnerable as Prince was in his own way.
My first instinct was that he simply pushed himself too much. I'm going to stick with that, no matter what else was in the equation.
My first feeling was one of anger at the hospital that wouldn't give this very private man a private room. I don't think it was too much to ask, or special treatment. Stars have received this for decades because of the fanfare and photo takers.
I have beem depressed lately and today cried and I talk to him. I know his spirit is still here; without sounding freaky I'll just say I've had some signs of acknowledgment. I have mostly been telling him he is loved. He knows it.
As others here have said, i suddenly felt angry today and sad that he died alone. Recently I asked myself, "where was everybody?!" I've also said, "Yeah, but was anyone there for you?" (when he needed them).
But the being alone thing really reached me deeper today.

I am trying to remember that he might well have chosen to be alone that night, and had probably often wanted that.

I read a beautiful article recently written by his Australian photographer who said that she interviewed him a few months ago and he had a look of acceptance on his face. She had worked with him for several years and after the photo shoot Prince came back into the room and gave her the most sincere thank you. It confused her at the time.

i know Prince is with God now because he loved God. I have been praying for his spirit to be at peace. I think he appreciates that. I also believe that in being with God, he would want us to be happy.
Much love

Acceptance. His death is poignantly bitter, yet, the life he lived is comfort for this unbearable thought. He needed the absence of pain and the presence of family.

Life...to be, to do , to do without and to depart. His death is a moment, alive, he had so many.

My hope is that there is something after death. A hope that will always be nourished by his memory which lives amongst those of us who seeked him out. His memory will be more potent than the man alive.

Anger (from all the crap that is going on while waiting for the results) turning to Acceptance that he is gone sad The funeral on Sunday will reinforce this.

stinasings,

Hi. Unfortunately, I think you're in the depression stage. You're in good company, so don't think you're alone. I keep fluctuating between depression, anger and acceptance. I was able to listen to a lot of his music Friday without any problems, but when my issue of Rolling Stone arrived in the mail the following day (yes, I still subscribe to the paper edition!), I couldn't go near it. I saw the cover, but I haven't been able to sit down and work my way through the magazine. I know I should be able to, but I'm in no hurry. I'll get there.

well i am no longer in shock, and i am functioning. but i think about him at the beginning and end of every day, many times in between, and STILL cannot bear to listen to him sing.

so maybe anger/sadness/i don't know.

but i will never reach full acceptance. closure is not in my vocabulary. i am forever changed by his life and his death and am proud to be so.

Well, I've been crying for the first 2 weeks. Now I've stopped crying long enough to even think about where I am. Feeling Denial, Anger and Depression -- so upset that no one was home with him. So upset that Dr's didn't help soon enough. So upset that he was just dropped off without a car that he was ill -- a friend should have come in with him. So... mostly Anger.... but now I'm going to cry again......

I've been physically unwell with this and that since he died, I'm sure it's to do with the shock of his death. I don't sleep well, which is why I'm on here at 1 am, taking comfort from knowing I'm not alone in missing him terribly and feeling bereft since he left this world. I am finding comfort in the long picture thread, I like to look at all the different eras he went through and think about happier days. I'm getting on with daily life but can't shake the sadness, I think I will always feel the loss. He meant so much to me and is irreplaceable. Of course I'd didn't know him, but I don't think you necessarily have to know someone to love them. He was a huge part of my life and I feel like something in me has died with him. Can we have a "just soldiering on" section? That's me, just following routine, getting on with stuff, but missing him and feeling rubbish.

Denial, anger, depression....and probably close to one of the worst cases of overwhelming sadness I've ever dealt with in my entire life. It's 4 weeks later. I'm still crying daily.

Welcome to "the org", Mumio…they can have you, but I'll have your love in the end nod

Today I got angry.

I'm tired of going places and hearing people cover him.

NO ONE EVER COVERED HIM! And now I'm crying every time I hear it. Mostly cuz the people doing the covers SUCK.

Just stop.
Surprise, surprise.
Another treat. Another trick.

I know it is so comforting to have the forum and be with others who loved him so much He was such a good person.

still in denial, entering into bargaining. The bargaining will be a short stop into full depression when the final results and investigations are in.......then ....Doesn't help that I am in love with "Revelation"....hopefully, he has experienced true Revelation when he slipped through to the other side. I am still hoping that this is all a set-up, as a test for his inner circle, family and the general population about how much he means to them(us) - the loyalty. Kind of like, how I read (thanks to the members of this board) that he likes to tweet, erase tweet, back tweet others comments, then act upon some of those tweets.....tweet: @Prince: 1/2 time over
Need me some fuzzy love....and yes, I wear clear heels

I thought I was in acceptance but tonight was not a good night. My husband and I were in the kitchen making dinner listening to the local soul pop radio station. When they played When Doves Cry and I just broke down. So I guess I am still in depression. When I look at the picture thread I am in denial. I think I shall stay there.
