My tear glands have dried up like a once delicate flower in the Namib Dessert on a cold cold winter night
Mya's white pearls intertwined between my fingers remind me of our time together and how we used to make each other smile
Summer rain-red robots-screeching tires...the ear-piercing sound of ambulance sirens in the dark of the night, came as if, from the mouth of the angel of death
Summer rain-red robots-screeching tires…and just like that, the love of my life was gone
Fallen autumn pebbles on the sidewalk awaken visions of blood-drenched leaves
Memories of song and dance are ever-present realities, in a reality, devoid of life
Those mourning lost loved ones and lost love are the subjects of my envy
Tears run down their cheeks and I reach over to wipe them away, as I pray, that their tears, never run away
For once they do, then they too will one day be standing here, before you, enveloped by regret and anguish at the words that remain unsaid
Three little words are all it takes.
Each word on its own is an empty vessel, but as a trio they have the power to un-break and heal the most broken of hearts and move mountains twice the size of Kilimanjaro.
Here I Am.
Unmoving, unmoved, numb...as the vowels begin to form on my lips, I welcome the sight of the onrushing bus…as I slowly mouth the words: "I love you"
Like the petals upon a dying rose I know the end is near
She may have never received an invite, but she can never accuse me of not having been a gracious host
My soul is your home. Your home is my soul.
The act of being alive is but a continuation of breaths
That which intercepts the breaths is living
I do not remember when last a meaningful event intercepted these breaths-DO YOU?
Few ever consider it, even less follow through
Most look down upon those who do it and never care to just ask "WHY?"
Sure, it may not be the perfect solution.
But, who cares about perfection?
Perfection, is an illusion that will remain unfulfilled many a tomorrow.
What I need TODAY, what I need NOW, is not the perfect solution.
All I need is a means to an end.
Here I Stand.
Unmoving, unmoved, numb...as the vowels begin to form on my lips I welcome the sight of the onrushing bus and I whisper softly, slowly, quietly: Till We Meet Again, Goodbye"

Its not what you think. Its worse.
though, I'm not sure if it still hurts.
I might have moved on to the next verse
or I might still find you in one of four chambers
But its not what you think. in fact, ignore this.
knowing you, you wont.
you will read, and you will know, and you will ponder,
and you will confront me and you will be pissed.
and i will tell you that its not what you think,
and you will stare with those huge brown buttons
and you believe that i am lying, and the truth?
well, if you can swim, you'll find it at the bottom.
but its dark down there, and i fear for your survival.
you shouldnt have to think this hard.
i will tell you this, i needed to mourn you, needed back
seemingly you wouldnt let go, so i took five.
not five hearts, because thats sick, and bordering evil.
not five pills neither. i mean.
so just stop those silly thoughts.
lets just say that it took five of them to intervene.
to even get me out of my room ekse.
and now this void, this, this opague thing between us.
what did you think was gonna happen?!
as you were.

I'll tell you what's good. Music. And it is for this worldwide über therapeutic phenomenon, that I have decided to take some moments from my not-so-busy life to dedicate blog posts to describing what I believe to be the most amazing music pieces I've ever heard.
That said, you should brace yourselves, because I happen to listen to so much music it's a wonder I can still hear properly. Maybe I can't though. These are not reviews though, more like my unorthodox expert opinion on the subject, as it is a vital part of my life, and I believe yours as well. Music has literally brought me through some intense times in my life, and it will be these life altering songs you will get to know.
Look out for the HIEH pieces coming real soon.
