I followed the wind today If it can make haste Then so must I. I rode its unpredictable back An elemental goddess in my prime. I moved with the leaves Swept willingly along the path. They danced jigs around my feet, my head I was crowned their Queen. Me? A Queen! I felt all the power of the gusts inside me. A whirling dervish, hovering above ground Nothing but the sound of leaf adulation Oh what a sound! Yesterday I trudged through mud Pulled my collar up against the draught Sighed as the leaves stuck to my shoes. Heard nothing but howling. But today at last I will not freeze I will harness the power of that wonderful breeze. (c) Slumpless
Do you hear me in the depths of night
When I whisper your name ?
You must feel those words of longing pulse their way into your dreams.
How else can you explain the reasons you wake up in the dark ?
I’m all the way over here my dear
But whispers fly through time
Driven by a thumping clock that knows no distance.
I won’t let you sleep
I won’t let you sleep.
She finished the very last piece of her cake
Not a morsel left on the plate.
“She’d lick it clean,” You said.
“If she could”.
You said this like it was a bad thing.
I wonder does she live her life this way ?
To the the last crumb ?
You could make stuffing from all the half arsed things I’ve done.
Lick it clean. Finish the cake.
Life is short for goodness sake.
I explained you into something else
How else could I understand you ?
I made excuses for your strange ways
And let the nuances I didn’t understand become mysteries, worthy of my love.
At the end however I realized that you are not an art piece to be deciphered
And that color on a wall does not a picture make.
Your silences are not opportunities for me to read your mind
But chances for blissful peace
So goodbye sunshine. Goodbye rain.
I thought you were a Picasso but you were nothing but a stain.
I will put holes in your clouds
And trenches in your doubt
Today you will see that I want nothing but you.
You can do as you please
I’m on my knees.
I told you it was forever
But most people don’t mean it my way.
There’s no highway. No wave goodbye.
I am the air you cannot see
The dust that settles lightly on your shoes
Use. Use. Used.
I’m used to it.
So run and push.
There’s nowhere for you to go.
I am sand and snow.
Tree, bird, mamal, fish
Do as you wish.
My love will not be killed
Even if my blood is spilled.
I don’t know jealousy
I don’t know hate.
This is what it means to be my soul
So cry. Whimper. Laugh
You are half.
I am other.
Souls from the same Mother.
Cut from the same star.
Dig deep you sad little thing
Find that flutter, buried under hard concrete.
It’s in there… somewhere.
What does it take, to make the earth shake ?
For you ?
Is it fire that gets you going
Or do prefer ice ?
You’ve forgotten I know
We all do.
So keep digging my friend.
Keep going through rock, sand and shale
You might fail. Or you might find seed
The one that needs the light.
The one you thought was dead.
The one buried in a hole.
Deep. Deep within your soul.
