"There’s a brief moment when you first wake up, where you have no memories. A blissful blank slate, a happy emptiness."

"Love isn’t how you feel. It’s what you do."

"The frustration of being alone, is not in that you feel unloved, but in that you are unable to express your love. By the expression of love to others, you experience love yourself. When you can love all things without judgment, and you yourself shall be loved without judgment, and the world shall finally know the peace of loving acceptance."

"

I almost miss the sound of your voice but know that the rain
outside my window will suffice for tonight.

I’m not drunk yet, but we haven’t spoken in months
and I wanted to tell you that someone threw a bouquet of roses
in a corner trash bin and I wanted to cry
because, because - well
you know exactly why.

And, I guess I’m calling because only you understand
how that would break my heart.

I’m running out of things to say.
I’ve stopped stealing pages out of poetry books, but
last week I pocketed a thesaurus and looked for synonyms for you
and could only find rain
and more rain
and a thunderstorm that sounded like glass, like crystal, an orchestra.

What can I say? We are all lonely. 

There are some gaps in your heart that no body can ever fill and try as you might to stitch the days together the thread sometimes will break, and yet
our blood goes on running through these veins
searching for our organs to embrace
willing us to run, to breathe, to live. 

It’s hard to believe you are made of the stars
when you find no ocean deep enough to bury yourself under 
and gravity pulls down not only your body 
but every hope you ever harboured in the darkest corners of your bones.

Sometimes, still, I raise my eyes to meet yours.

And there will always be spaces between us that feel heavier than our hearts ever could but they are, I think, the only ground strong enough to carry the weight of our lives. 

I forget that simply in sharing a glance we defy human nature’s laws of physics. We love not out of fear, but in spite of it.

So this is a song I wrote when I was in high school. I was either 16 or 17 at the time and I had pretty much written it off until I sort of accidentally discovered it last week. I was reminded of my life then and what I was thinking about… I decided to re-record it - possibly out of vanity…. It could be one of those I-like-it-for-the-nostalgia things, I’m not sure - but here it is anyhow. There are a lot of words & they go by fast so I’ll include the lyrics below…
________________________________________________________
“Clouds”

If you want to listen now, then I could say it again,
You don’t deserve repeated sayings so I wrote this instead.
I don’t believe you fought a fight and now a showing is best
A thousand hands will hold you down until they pull up the rest.

She lies inside outside this house with other guys, it’s so cold
always sure about the world but never learned how to hold.
And you new life doesn’t seem right - 
All your days are spent escaping the sunlight.

and now you’re
Down Down Down Down you’re falling down,
live from the stratosphere escape to the clouds.
Down Down Down Down don’t you know from the sound,
Why can’t you keep yourself from feeling the doubt?

This is all those letters written down for you into one
Your smiling face is under pressure now that summer’s undone
And I know you, you’re going back to
the only one who never would love you.

You’re
Down Down Down Down you’re falling down,
love from the stratosphere escaped to the clouds.
Down Down Down Down don’t you know from the sound?
Why can’t you keep yourself from feeling the doubt?

Seventeen and he’s everything she needed
He lives up north and her friends are all conceited.
He drives a fast car and shares sunburned relations
with a girl she knows kaleidoscoping complications,

She’ll take a walk the water’s warm this time of year
Remembering the things she found while she was here
the leaves leave easily like postcards from the sun.
they shout your name off in the past and now the season is done,

and now you’re
Down Down Down Down you’re falling down,
alive from the stratosphere escaped to the clouds.
Down Down Down Down now you know from the sound.
Why can’t you keep your head from feeling the doubt?

Down Down Down Down you’re going down,
live from the stratosphere escaped to the clouds.
Down Down Down Down don’t you know I’m the sound?
Why can’t you keep yourself from feeling the doubt? (x2)
