Can I Be...











Was listening to a Scott Stapp
song the other day...
picked up a pen...
and this came out.


I really like it!





Can I Be...


Can I be an island
A self sustaining life
Running on cylinders --- full
Throttled to the max
Can I be that island
Without strife
Tensions within me --- pull
As I try my best to relax


Can I be more
Than an ocean filled with doubt
Surrounding my island --- treasure
A pirates creed
Can I be that ocean
Water's clear water's without
Skillfully maneuvering --- taking measure
Fruit-filled limbs only
Life beyond the seed


Can I be a sun
Refreshing yellow glow
Leaving behind shapes --- a stillness
Shadows revealing a tale
Can I be that sun
A brightness  a warmth  a show
Caressing your emotions --- a willingness
To embrace my rays
They never fail


Can I be a tick in time
Just listen to that click
As your heart moves from 1 to --- 2
Such safety is found inside
Can I be that tick in time
You are the candle I am the wick
My strength & love flows & believes --- in you
That time stands still as 1 & 2
You & I
Colide


Can I be your vision
Can I be your season
Can I be your present
Can I be your song
Can I be your future


Can I be...




Can I Be...
Can I Be...
Can I Be...
Can I Be...

Warren Zevon with Bruce Springsteen... Disorder In The House... Song of the Moment











Song of the Moment





Warren Zevon was about to die...
so what did he do??
He recorded his very last album,
that's what!


It's a really good disc,
but this one track just kicks my ass.
Bruce Springsteen
joined forces with Warren on it.
Awesome.

Words From The Attic... Slow











The world... needs... dreamers!!





Slow

Slow...
A dreamer lives forever





Slow






Words From The Attic... A Simple Thing That's Sometimes Hard To Do











At first I didn't understand the title.
Well, we all know what a crappy title
creator I am right... lol


But then the theme of sharing...
that has to be it... right.
Because sometimes,
a lot of times really...
sharing...
is a very difficult response for us to grasp.


So yeah...
sometimes...
it really is...
hard to do!


I enjoyed this piece very much.





A Simple Thing That's Sometimes Hard To Do

Sometimes
When I'm alone
I start to daydream
Of things to come
I wonder about things
That mean nothing at all
I sometimes dream
Of flying to the sun


I see in my mind
Real pretty things
The trees
The lakes
The springs
I see myself on a sunny day
And realize just one thing


There's no one there
There's no one to share
All the beauty before my eye's
Until I look up
I see you there
You were bright
As the glowing skies


You were willing to share
With someone who cared
About the things that you thought right
I took your hand
It's like it all was planned
And we shared our love
Throughout the night


It's the little things in life
That really mean a lot
Like a cuddle
A hug
Or a kiss
It may be simple to you
But it's the world to me
To be sharing a love
Like this





A Simple Thing That's Sometimes Hard To Do






Words From The Attic... Our Eyes











Wow...
my blood almost ran cold...
for a second, I thought
she really was...
looking at me!


Quick
to the point
up beat
out loud thinking
and well
pretty neat.
I like it... a lot!





Our Eyes

A shivering sensation
Runs up your spine
As the girl of your dreams
Approaches your world
She's soft
She's quiet
She could be mine


As the wolves of the night
Approach your prey
With offerings of love
And soft gentle rain
But to her
They're just
Another day


As the movement calms
And the wolves retreat
My blood runs cold
And my heart grows fast
As she turns her head
And looks at me
And our eye's
Do meet





Our Eyes






Words From The Attic... The Woman Was Strange











What the fuck???


Just a simple fantasy that worked,
for me anyways.


Don't think too much into it.
Just read it for what it is...
a delightful short story,
that leaves the ending...
up to you.


I really liked it.


Sometimes...
a lot of the times in fact...
strange...
is good!!





The Woman Was Strange

Softly she spoke
It was a whispering voice
I could hardly hear it


The day was dense
And the skies were deep
But if my ears were right
And didn't lie
The voice I heard
Had begun to weep


My little queen
In her moment of despair
Wash away those tears
And brush back your hair


The day was lost
But our lives they remain
So why all the tears
Sorrow and pain


The woman responds
In a peculiar way
Her eyes they glisten
And her hair it glows
Her composure was back
And she starts to say
Round and round
Here we go
Where we'll stop
No one knows


The woman was strange
But quit inviting
Her energy was strong
And even exciting


She grabbed my arm
And pulled me away
And we entered a region
Between the worlds


At first I thought
It was a dream
But no
I was wide awake
So it seemed


She caressed my palm
With her soft moistened hand
To a place that was filled
With white shinny sand


The place on my birth
She mumbled aloud
I must share it's secrets with you...





The Woman Was Strange






Words From The Attic... Hung Up On You











Wow...
I can't wait to find THIS... girl!


Loved reading this one.


Forever... my love song!





Hung Up On You

I feel your body inside my mind
Caressing it's thought
Senses
Left blind
Waiting for you to call my name
For you
To call your game


Your letters I read
Only making me need
You more
I taste your scent in every word
I feel myself
Running for the door


Wanting to kiss you
Feel your every move
Knowing what it's like
To be with someone
Who can always soothe


When I think of you
I understand
That you are simply real
You hold my hand
You talk with me
You tell me exactly
How you feel


I've waited for you
For a very long time
All the other's
Were oh so wrong
Now I'm so happy
That you're all mine
You are forever
My love song





Hung Up On You
