Locking her way out

19 Jan

“We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come”

The Unbearable Lightness of Being – Milan Kundera

This picture made me write a song once

So many things going on
through her head
it won’t stop
she won’t go
she has to stay

reality
made her stop
in her life
and it doesn’t feel right
-it’s not right- tonight.

The fields feel right
to her feet,
she walks away
to her own destiny
made up by words
-cozy and warm-
she wishes there was
no need to leave her dream.

… but she has to go… she can’t stay asleep…

She stood by the window
winter had finally come
garden covered in a white dress
prepared to marry the cold

she had nowhere to go
no cause to fight for
she was finally decided
but now the door was locked

she stopped her plans
and made herself home.

The fields feel right
to her feet,
she walks away
to her own destiny
made up by words
-cozy and warm-
she wishes there was
no need to leave her dream.

… but she has to go… she can’t stay asleep…

No real reason to leave
she would say
no real reason to escape
she would guess

no no
if there’s something to be scared
it’s the lock in her head

We’re special. We really are.

Hold on to me.

Stairway to Self Discovery

15 Dec

“When my time to die is near, I will not grieve. I will accept my fate calmly, and when my body is gone, I will rejoice to join the symphony of time contained in every living, breathing body. My heart will sing at the thought of joining the matter of dinosaurs, the cavemen, the uncountable men and women long since dead-each with his own story, and each part of the remarkable pageant of time in which we are not players, but mere specks of dust existing in a temporary world until we are freed of our bodies and allowed to join in the history of time-to be one with a delicate flower, a soaring bird, a mighty redwood tree, and every star and planet of the galaxy.”

– J.B.L. 1/2/91-3/30/10

Patience

14 Dec


It’s not what happens or what could happen that worries me.
Is the fact of having to wait in order to know what is the result.

”those days are over” that’s what your mind said. hearts don’t matter anymore and i know that i can still look in you eyes but, can you do the same for me?
