winter on this latitude


Thirst all it is … to it
Frozen on the altar …
Paralyzed beyond stir

This one here,
Perhaps, the last of your punches
Blocked the pain … with a band-aid of hope

Extinction of self …
Ashes lost in white spaces

It’s so painful pretending to be asleep now
The drops that fall are tears

Cowered in the corner…
Waiting for the dawn
To wear the smile again

Because it’s me who’s scared of the blue
Because it’s me who’s afraid of the dark…

I have always tried to add in some comments on your blog (to prove that me too is some sort of "enlightened one"... haha), but never been able to! Poor me!

With time, the heart heals. That's what I got out of this beautiful piece. I felt myself go through the motions while reading it.

Hey, come on!!

Isn’t, a brave arm makes a short sword long?

Perhaps, the last of your punches
Blocked the pain … with a band-aid of hope


Hmmmm, cool one!


Little Bit Scared
Every time that I, thought I fell in love
I'd land a little bit harder
And with each bruise on this broken heart
I'd grow a little bit smarter

I thought I was a little bit stronger
I thought I could hide this a little bit longer
But what I feel is just too real and I'm
A little bit scared, little bit scared!


~ Stephanie Smith, from the song "A Little Bit Scared"

Hope is what you should live for - everything else doesn't matter.
