As Long As You Will Be.

Its another silent day,

Breathing cuz I must,

Eye’s that watch but don’t see,

As our world crumbles to dust.


Beauty in the darkness,

People like us do find,

Some write, some paint,

The pain makes some go blind.


In every nook and cranny,

A verdict in every voice,

They knew we’d fail,

I don’t care, to me, its all noise.


That knot in your throat,

The one that you cant swallow,

Forever there, choking you,

The one making you feel hollow.


I find it in me as well,

Lodged in my heart,

A part of the beating,

An end that precedes the start.


I wonder if there’s a voice,

Calling you from within,

Like the one speaking through me,

Longing for peace to reign.


I wonder if somewhere,

My patience has defeated me,

And if I’ll wait for you,

For as long as you will be.

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 25 trips to carry that many people.

No Present, Nor Past

The pages turn,

The sands flow,

I look above,

The skies glow.


Your touch burns,

Your sight sears,

I lay locked,

Motionless with fear.


Deafened by my heart,

Beating aloud,

Tears trickle down my face,

Cover me like a shroud.


Blindly I walk,

Towards you again,

Hold my hand,

Quietly say my name.


Filled with fire,

I’ll come alive,

The sound of your voice,

That’s my only vice.


To the Earth,

We’ll tell our story,

Of love and surrender,

In all its glory.


Hold me up,

As I crumble away,

Under the weight,

Of longing I sway.


Believe every word,

To be my last,

Without us,

I have no present, nor past.
