everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
i recently formed a new found obsession with daughter, so having her and ben howard perform together is a dream come true. the ending is gold.
i should go now quietly, for my bones have found a place to lie down and sleep
where all my layers can become reeds,
all my limbs can become trees,
all my children can become me,
what at mess i leave
keiko the world is a beautiful thingi don’t always adore it, but i know what it means to feel love
comfortably numb__pink floyd
there is no pain, you are receding
a distant ship smoke on the horizon
you are only coming through in waves
your lips move but i can’t hear what you’re saying
you are closer than ever.
so close to me that i could reach out and touch you.
i almost did that night.
i almost let these trapped words finally leave my lips and rest on your ears.
i almost let these feelings free from this jail cell of a heart which i have locked them in.
i almost let myself be completely vulnerable.
but i didn’t.
will i ever?
i will try.
but will i ever?
you are closer than ever but you have never been farther away.
time is running out and soon you will be gone.
other hearts are knocking and soon i will have to let one in.
but yours is the one that i truly want, the one that i can’t seem to have.
i have been waiting patiently and quietly at your door.
do you know i’m there?
i want to knock and bang and pound on your door until you know i’m there.
until you let me in.
and no man is an island, oh this i know
but can’t you see, oh?
maybe you were the ocean, when i was just a stone
you are a great and uncharted sea, with a soul as deep as trenches.
it is too far for me to swim, i have only skimmed the surface.
you sway to and fro, gentle yet tameless.
i toss pebbles into you and watch as they sink to your bottom, never to see the light of day again.
did you feel it?
do you feel the stones splash as they strike your surface?
do you feel them slowly sink to your floor?
your waves lap at my ankles, drawing me into your depths.
i long to dive deep into your waters, to taste your salt on my lips.
but i am afraid of drowning, of losing sight of the beach.
i am afraid of your waves pushing me back, rejecting me.
so i stand on your shores as your wind blows through my yearning heart, never to set sail on your waters.
well come on child, don’t be scared of this,
well life is still a blessing, we all ruin we all reach
