Love, because you can’t love your way out of the lunatic asylum, but it makes it more fun to be a lunatic.
--Me


I woke up

The sun’s bright rays came streaming in

On a world

Without my dearest friend.

 

I miss you

With every aching hour

I have lost my fighting power,

Oh please, come home to me.

 

I think of you by day

I pray for you by night

And as I write this lonely letter

Please remember that I love you

I love you still the same.

 

When I lay down

Sad memories come pouring in

Raindrops clink

Like hobnails on the pane.

The tears inside

Are too thick for me to cry,

My eyes are hot and dry.

I miss you all the more.

 

We know tomorrow

Will be a sunshine day,

Drowning in my sorrow,

This is all I can say:

I think of you by day,

Pray for you by night.

I think of you by day

Pray for you by night.

 

I miss you.

The heartache will fade, they say.

I love you,

We will survive this day.

How I long

To kiss you, hug you, make you better

To hold you so never, never

Go from me.

 

Look out the windows, baby,

As the storm clouds break

Ocean-bright and clean,

Blue sky’s here to stay,

Blue sky’s here to stay.

This is a poem I set to a piece of jazz from my Dad's favorite jazz CD.

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!

I like this 🙃

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]

You couldn't find this song, really, unless you found the album called Skyline Sax by Lifescapes. It was just one track (I think it was number 4) on an obscure jazz CD, if you know what I mean. Inspirational flashes are so cool btw!
