I thought it was permanent,
My shattered pride.
I once was innocence
But it turned on its side,
A black cloud rained over me
It followed my every move
Knee deep in the memories
Where there once was truth.

I realised how I so wanted time
To put things into perspective,
Something I tried so hard to find.
Just for one moment I thought I’d found the way,
But as my destiny unfolded
I watched it slip away.

Like a global flashpoint, I was beyond all reach,
Solitary was at my command, all which I’d like to keep.
I took a ride to the frontier, to see what I could find
A ruined collection of dreams and past desires,
Dumped like garbage on a roadside!

You will never realise the miles I’d had to go,
And all those dark corners of my room
I did not know.
It was just for one moment I thought I heard a call
To look beyond the day in hand,
There was nothing, nothing there at all.

Now that I’ve realised how it had gotten so wrong,
Had to find some therapy, but the treatment took way too long.
But deep inside my heart, it was love who lead the way,
It finally found my destiny before it slipped away.

At one point in my life I had to make a decision.

I am really anti-art and that might be pretentious but there’s pretence in every aspect of art.

    Because I know you so well, I think this is very brave. This is pure and unadulterated poetry! : D

  • Jovan, I have always said to you that the reason why I’m here on RB is because of you and I have come along way and I feel acceptance and people are beginning to understand me . Sometimes it’s tough being different and always thinking that something is wrong with you but in actual fact it’s because we don’t look at things on face value and we go against the grain. Thank you to infinitum again my shining light. xoxo

    Wow! Life laid open. Stunningly beautiful. I can’t take my eyes off of it. And it takes me back to my times when I had to leap to live. When what I really wanted was to cover up & cuddle.
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for this piece of you!

  • Honario, I try to help myself and the people I love and even the people I don’t see like yourself. We all feel at times we want to just curl up and die but there is always a little piece of you that will say, "Get up you, you’re not done yet!! " thank you to you! Annie Z xoxo

    Every now and then there comes along someone like yourself who just changes the way you look at the world! This is perfection and the nice touch of Beatles magic with one of the best songs they’ve ever written. Amazing work Minuit, truly amazing. : )

  • I try to help myself and the people I love and even the people I don’t see like yourself. Whether you are really you, it really doesn’t matter in the end, the words are there for you to read and find something of worth. And yes, it is a fantastic song and that’s why I chose it. Thank you Maximillian. xo

    You lance the painful boils of life with your pen, tomorrow is a new day the black clod clouds lighten their mist. an orange egg sun smiles on a distant horizon you will bask in its rays soon, but for now you trundle on carrying chains of memory in your leaded heart .

  • I believe in the inspirations of conscienceness! That’s my new religion.

    PS : I prefer a citrus like an orange for a Sun, eggs can go bad.

    Thank you maestro Timbuktu. : ))
