Collapse Into Now


Are you coming soon? It is all about to start. The dusk is lifted on an open stage -

"I'll wait forever and a day" and falling in love with that day you said that, to me.

Two travellers, are they leaving or going? We question motives whether it be aloud or deep inside. There is so much to see and to discover, for our own - despite those having found it before. The river is ever new, so why can't our own eyes be too. A mandolin sings serenades of sweetness and wraps an embrace. "She was such a sweet girl, so gentle in her way". We mourn for the victims of past, present and future. There are so many, we cannot know all their names. The sombre piano enters now and reminds you in reverberating resonance. You are left sat still, slightly slumped, with your shoulders lower - the chip, a heavy weight. It is a visible change the eye can see. Cello of Wisdom plays now and holds your hand like Daddy did no matter how grown up you got. Constantly there and hum drum to the rhythm this path takes you on. Despite the eerie violin harmonium you continue to walk forward. You imagine yourself in a forest and the breeze of sound comes and goes as quickly as it were here. The sudden a cappella of the backing chorus are leaves crunching and twigs cracking. Then the mighty drum swoops in and whisks you away, your knight in shining armour has come. Pandemonium ensues but it always dies away with the slow pianos. Their marriage of sound is sometimes happy. His in contentment, hers shared but they all say the sorrow can be heard in her captivating scale. She is only shades of blue.

Do you ever see so much more colour in sound as there is in the rainbow?

We do our bit, that's meant to be enough. (It never is). Like on the day you said so long ago.
('These things I say are just traces of something')

The invisible band played you out on the deserted stage.
Not ready, not ready, not ready.

  2. Hi Mhairi!

    Thanks for the great comment. It's so nice to know that someone enjoys reading my blog. Lately, I feel like it's becoming very burdensome and that people are commenting out of kindness, rather than interest, but that's just my issues, I guess.

    I gave Mich's award to you, because you are such a great story teller. I can't wait to read your next one. Reading this one has made me want to go for a walk in the woods! I hope the weekend weather is nice! And yes, I do "see so much more colour in sound as there is in the rainbow". I think it comes with the artist territory. I was amazed to read that not all people can listen to a piece of music and single out the separate instruments, they can only hear the piece as a whole! Oh well, different strokes for different folks, eh?!

    Hope you have a great week. <3. XXX.

  4. I am "Michelle", a college grad with a highly professional job. I was looking for answers & I got them. I was heartbroken that my boyfriend decided to leave the relationship, a friend introduced me to a spell caster that did A Lover Retrieval spell for me and within a week of the spell casting, he called "just to talk". After some pleasant talks and catching up, he asked to see me again. He is absolutely crazy about me now and DOES see the good in me that I had hoped he would. We are back together now happily & even planning on getting married soon.Should in case you need his services & want's his contact or you have any more question to ask you can hit me up on michbaines at gmail dot com.

    Good Luck
    Michelle.
