Through Eyes Shut Tight


It’s not blue but runs like water
Falls from a height but never crashes
There’s no sound, no continuity
A series of photos, small shifts between each
Lightning flashes through each drop but it’s dark
It hovers in mid-air. There’s no place, no skies
No seas, no suns.
It is just that. That’s all I can see when I close these eyes.

In the end they promise us happiness
Through all the hazy chaos
The sun’s supposed to shine
Revealing a world, so divine.
But when the time comes and that day is not yet arrived,
Hearts will break at the horrendous sight.

The destination isn’t worth it but the journey’s all that;
I’ve come some what way, lost in the paths of life.
Trust is broken and so is the world.
There doesn’t seem to be
Anything to find in this dying spherical mass.

Everything you know gets twisted
All you believe never existed.
The case is lost,
The lights are off
But it’s not yet the promised end.

Desperation brings you back.
But hope is lost
Trust won’t come back.

Info about upcoming posts

I’ve just been browsing through a folder I have which is full of scraps of paper with scribbles and random thoughts. I found some things worth sharing, so my upcoming posts will be a small selection of writings for you all to look into my imagination. I apologize in advance if it’s a waste of your time and my judgement of them being worth sharing is way off.

P.S. Don’t be afraid and don’t forget to leave me comments! 🙂

Since when are holidays and stress associates?

I’m on my long awaited carnaval holidays and you would not believe the kind of pressure I am under. I have so much to do and I have a very full month ahead of me. I’m talking every weekend booked until my Easter vacation. The anticipation and pressure which some events have on me has put me under an immense amount of stress and I can’t sit back and enjoy the holidays. It’s the same syndrome again… that feeling of having to run after life to catch up with it. Can I not just relax? (Sigh) Under Pressure!!!


Today’s Disappointment

I’m sad. Even on a good day I’ll be sad without a valid reason. I try to understand why and question myself but I can’t always put my finger on it. It’s subconscious  It has to be. But it sucks the fun out of life. You know, you try to do something nice for yourself and you try to have fun but you only wind up being sad again. Like a vicious never-ending cycle. Everything has consequences. But I just want to get rid of this feeling. I want to come home and feel liberated after my fresh day out. I just don’t feel that way. I hope this doesn’t last otherwise my life will consist of an unknown emptiness.

Song Of The Week: Waste Of Paint

I am totally aware of how irregular this has become, but I figured while I’m still up making posts, I might as well. Here’s a piece of the guy I love sososo much!
I feel like this is one of his favourite pieces because he sings it really often and every time he seems to pour his heart out into it even more!
Hope you all enjoy it!
