seeing you…
is unexpected
like finding a hundred dollar bill
or a stash of  chocolate you forgot you’d hidden

fancying a kiss
all breath escapes my lips


contemplating  your touch
my body quivers uncontrollably

you walk past
…unseeing

“Unrequited Love”   Lykke Li

“Unrequited Love”   Lykke Li

lyrics ~

Once again it’s happening
Oh,  this love is unrequited
Twice the pain,  the suffering
Oh,  my love is unrequited
Oh,  my love is unrequited

That must mean I live again
And get back what I gave my men
Get back what I lost to them

Oh, the shame
This crying game
Oh, my love I’ve been denied it
Oh, my love is unrequited

And I know it so well
I could play with the beat
Looking back at myself
While the violin plays

And blue is my tune
Another stitch to my wound
Another inch in this thread
And I know it all too well
When once again it’s happening

Oh,  my love has gone divided
Oh,  my love is unrequited
Oh,  my love is unrequited
Oh,  my love is unrequited
Oh,  my love is unrequited

“This Night”    Black Lab

lyrics ~

There are things I have done
There’s a place I have gone
There’s a beast and I let it run
Now it’s running my way

There are things I regret
That you can’t forgive you can’t forget
There’s a gift that you sent
You sent it my way

So take this night and wrap it
Around me like a sheet
I know I’m not forgiven
But I need a place to sleep

So take this night
And lay me down on the street
I know I’m not forgiven but I hope
That I’ll be given some peace

There’s a game that I played
There are rules I had to break
There’s mistakes that I made
But I made them my way

So take this night
And wrap it around me like a sheet
I know I’m not forgiven
But I need a place to sleep

So take this night
And lay me down on the street
I know I’m not forgiven
But I hope that I’ll be given some peace
Some peace, some peace

ఎ • ౡ • ల

you ask for peace
as if  the asking makes you deserving

if  it were in my power
i would take the night
and wrap it so tightly around you
that no life remained

let the beast which you loosed upon others
exact the price for all you did
leaving you not a moment’s  peace
in this lifetime or the hereafter

i will tell you a story
of  what  might  be…

since the beginning of  Time
and the Universe and all Life…

{ whether created by a Big Bang or
God or Goddess or YHWH or Allah

or  whatever you believe }

…since The Beginning
there has been Good and Evil

i would like to imagine there is a Heaven
…or many Heavens…
where we can go after death,
be forgiven for our sins
and reunited with loved ones

what  i  KNOW is that on Earth
there is Goodness in every living thing

and  that  Goodness
deserves to be respected

the Goodness in each of  us grows
when we encourage and foster it in others

maybe it is a tiny piece of  The Creator
perhaps it is the Spark of  Life
or it could be our Soul

do the differences in how we describe all of  this really matter?
isn’t it Goodness at the deepest level whatever we name it?

heartbreakingly
Evil also exists on Earth
sometimes it overpowers Goodness
but it can never eliminate it completely
just as it is impossible to eradicate Evil

does that make it any less important to hold onto Hope?
to strive to nurture Goodness in ourselves and others?
or does it make it all the more crucial?

agree or deny
you will  be faced
with Goodness and with Evil

the journey through our time on Earth
can only be enhanced
by fighting on the side of  Good
whether we survive in some fashion
after our bodies die
or if  that is truly the end

do not give in to the temptations of  Evil
but if  you do,  try again

let the Goodness shine out from you

Mickie grew tired
of  everyone
making fun of  her hands

so she flipped them off
and said as she left
“you can kiss my ass goodbye”

cell phone videos posted to YouTube
of  Mickie walking out the door
landed her a $250,000 contract
with Playboy Magazine

nobody even notices her hands any more
