unsung"I've learned that: goodbyes will always hurt, pictures can never replace having been there, memories will bring tears, words can never replace feelings, and heroes often go unsung."
Unending LoveI seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs,
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms,
In life after life, in age after age, forever.
Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it's age-old pain,
It's ancient tale of being apart or together.
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge,
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:
You become an image of what is remembered forever.
You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount.
At the heart of time, love of one for another.
We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell-
Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.
Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, un
A SmileI'm waiting terrified for the last decision,
You gently touch the knife,
My heart is pounding, waiting for the lethal incision,
I almost see the blade shedding the liquid of life,
I hear myself choking with my own blood,
The sound of the knife rending my flesh - a deafening thud.
But your hand goes further; over the axe it leans,
Shining ruthless under your fingers,
I'm about to die, by all means,
A sick suspense lingers,
I almost hear the sound of my breaking bones,
The gushing blood, the moans,
But no; your hand, well, further it goes.
"A gun? "
With it easily it will be done,
Infix the cold metal and let me bleed to death,
"Will it be fun? "
Just imagine the blood outflow until the last breath,
"Or a hammer? "
My body you could simply mash,
But you'll need to endure the blood splash,
That will stain your hands and face.
But instead that, your fingers, they retrace.
"The most lethal weapon isn't any of these",
You say stepping back, as my heart is starting to appease,
"It would be to
Let Me Tell You a SecretLet me tell you a secret
Just between you and me
Just our little secret
That will set my heart free
Free to become
Free to be one
That you had the same
Secret as me
But you were too scared to share it
Frightened I'd run
Or I'd flee
But with a laugh
With a smile
I'll beg you to stay
Be mine for a while
Please don't run away
Because the secret I hold
The one to be told
As our story unfolds
If I may be so bold
This secret I have
Is strong and it's true
So I dare-say quite simply
I'm in love with you.
FireIf life is a slow torture anyway,
Then it is a blessing to be,
From time to time,
Tortured by love
And if be consumed,
Let it be by fire
Attention SpanI have a bad attention span.
It really isn't fun.
I want to do a project and
It never quite gets done.
I sometimes try to multitask.
It really helps a lot.
But do I get it done, you ask
Well, often I
A Duet With MusicA Duet With Music
The music replays inside my mind,
The melodies ad harmonies mix and dance,
with color and swirls of sound.
Lyrics are words that relate, sing to the heart,
and open the soul.
The rhythm of a heartbeat,
the feelings that breathe,
the feelings that speak.
I feel the rush of thoughts that music brings.
Whispers, soothes, cries, and loves.
Raw, gentle, sweet, laughing, and
Notes catch stars in a jar,
keeping time all day long.
over and over.
It never truly ends.
Reminiscence I walked down the cream carpet steps of the basement and into the laundry room- a dark room full of cobwebs. But nothing like the old laundry room. Though it too was dark and cobwebby... it wasn't the same.
Picking past piles of dirty clothes I had yet to wash, I found them- the curtains. They were off-white at this point, not the bright pure white they had been back at the beach house. I grabbed them all up in my arms and held them close to my face, smelling the familiar smell of driftwood and coconut. I tried to make a move to set them down, but found myself falling to the floor with them, clutching the lace ever tighter.
"I miss you," I whispered into them, the saltiness of my tears mixing with that of the leftover sea. "I miss you." Suddenly, my remorseful reminiscing was broken off- I heard my name being called.
That's not the way you called for me, I thought, still c

My top 15 albums of 2012Hello!
I did the same thing a year ago, so it's time for a new one! This time I also added some lesser known musicians/bands. Choosing would be easier if I made a top 50, but that would be a hell of a lot of work. Here it is (not in any particular order).
Alcest - Les Voyages De L'Âme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgYkrDQYeZg
Alcest are one of the biggest musical inspirations to me. These French eccentrics combine elements from shoegaze, metal and post-rock, and they creative beautiful, atmospheric music this way. This is their third full-length. It sounds very dreamy and the lyrics are poetic. The artwork for this album is also gorgeous, made by Fursy Teyssier, creator of a musical project called Les Discrets (who also made a new album this year).
Anathema - Weather Systems http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNGGsIIqt44
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
