Some times
I think about how
The word
Alphabet
Means Alpha
And Beta
And how that
Implies a
....
Like the
Alphabet
Doesn't really
Ever end
So now the
Letter Z
Raises questions
In my brain
And I wonder
What comes
After it
That is why
I cannot
Sleep.

I don't have to earn
The happiness I feel
Because I exist
It is my right
To feel
Whatever I want
Yet I find myself
Measuring my days
Calculating my
Daily allowance
Of laughter
And booking in
The appropriate hours
To doubt myself

reason, racing,
isolation (self-imposed)
sweet symphonies (left uncomposed)
wishes come, a curse with each,
each longed-for one just out of reach,

ღ ღ ღ

our hearts, to them, ne'er to belong
(with all our last words taken wrong),
cry with me (in the dark we sleep),
endless we plant (yet never reap),

ღ ღ ღ

what of the heart that cries tonight?
what of the song it sings?
if we could, we'd fly to thee
if not for broken wings...

NEVER give all the heart, for love
Will hardly seem worth thinking of
To passionate women if it seem
Certain, and they never dream
That it fades out from kiss to kiss;
For everything that's lovely is
But a brief, dreamy.  Kind delight.
O never give the heart outright,
For they, for all smooth lips can say,
Have given their hearts up to the play.
And who could play it well enough
If deaf and dumb and blind with love?
He that made this knows all the cost,
For he gave all his heart and lost.

i used to think love
was a game to be played;
no one gets hurt
they just fade away

ღ ღ ღ

i used to think love
was the sun dawning bright,
my confidence high
in invincible light.

ღ ღ ღ

i used to think love
was the way i saw you;
a heart that i trusted
couldn't help but be true.

ღ ღ ღ

i now know true love...
a blade cutting both ways;
it can be true for me,
but can still fly away.

ღ ღ ღ

i hope in the future,
love may again bloom,
but tonight, ah, tonight,
all is blackness & gloom.

ღ ღ ღ
dizzying can be the heights, and very long and painful the fall back down to earth. i don't mind being single, and some nights i don't even miss missing special people from the past, even should it really sting.

I finally got to see this, my favourite song by the Boss on "The River" anniversary tour a few years ago, but I think this good ol' country boy cover is even better.

Bruce Springsteen (Cover) - Fade Away

A mermaid found a swimming lad,
Picked him for her own,
Pressed her body to his body,
Laughed; and plunging down
Forgot in cruel happiness
That even lovers drown.
What is it men in women do require?
The lineaments of Gratified Desire.
What is it women do in men require?
The lineaments of Gratified Desire.

The look of love alarms
Because ’tis fill’d with fire;
But the look of soft deceit
Shall Win the lover’s hire.

Soft Deceit & Idleness,
These are Beauty’s sweetest dress.

He who binds to himself a joy
Dot the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in Eternity’s sunrise.
