If I cried a little bit.

I hear the sweet crawl of a tear
Feel the scent of the blues
I touch the untouchable
whispers from lips that kiss
pleading for more

I fall,
I fall
hear me scrape my knee
bend to the blood
blend to the white stars
masses of stars
masses of signs that follow

I am under a bridge and hear the others come down
from a place that no longer seems important
drunk, crazy, hidden

What is the reason?
But then I’ve read somewhere our time does not mean
this is who I am
In one moment I can jump into the cold water
where my tattered life turns once again toward the direction
I thought I had lost
drifting towards the happiness that stole my wishes a long time ago

Here is a chair, a cigar and a maiden who loves me.
Heaven is likely a bit like this I think. Lit up and loved – comfort with a
favorite pillow – a favorite poem that keeps me going, a favorite cat that purrs
and I am lost to this sound

Here I never miss a lick of sleep
here I am without needing to compare my life to yours

Here our lives seem to blend like a good scotch.

If I cried a little bit. by 

There is a melancholy today inside me. I cannot do enough nor decide what to do is enough, it just is and it feels a bit lovely.

Inspired by one hella talent and friend ` his piece "Wishbones" got me going towards my own meaning… Thank you "Solarbear"

I am artist always becoming…
Endless ideas pull me forward towards endless creation.

    Reads like a single malt too! Loving the autumn in your recent works, the little boxes of limits that stack up neatly, all the way up to limitlessness. I get the image of Jimi in the WInd cries Mary

    A broom is drearily sweeping
    Up the broken pieces of yesterday’s life
    Somewhere a queen is weeping
    Somewhere a king has no wife

    And the wind, it cries Mary

  • Oh Jim… you just comment like writing an extenion to my work… I was to wait to tell you where I got my inspiration… I read your work.. Wishbones and heaved this up with all that is part of what you said;;; Autumn… a glorious time to live, imagine looking so good in death. hehe xxx will post this info later tonight that makes two inspired works from you for my bounty!

    Maybe it is the winter blues? It is common to suddenly feel moody when the weather changes; been feeling it myself. If the home is comforting enough though, one can overcome that anxiety; and from the way your writing ends, it does feel like comfort has been found in the home.

  • Yes, perhaps the seasonal calling of my heart can leave me with a bit of longing and a tad of feeling out of the loop. I did not feel so much as any kind of anxiety but more so a feeling of a hug or two would do it by those I love. This morning is much different and I shall be working all day… ha! what is new. Thank you so much Mui-Ling, your response to my work always feels wonderful. xox

    If you don’t know what to do, the best thing is to do SOMETHING … anything at all, even if its unrelated to the current situation.
    And … everything works out in the end. If it hasn’t worked itself out …. then its not the end.
