From....

From the moment I saw you all those years ago
As you walked by without a care and free
You captured me

From the second you spoke, my heart began to sing
A love song from deep in my soul, true and bold
You smiled at me

You know...you know...you know
I loved you then
You know...you know...you know
You broke me
You know...you know...you know
It will never be the same

From the darkness came the light of awakening
From the ocean deep came absolution
From fire came restoration
From the earth came strength

From the moment I rose from the ashes
I let you walk away with weight of it all
You released me

From the second your voice went silent
No more love songs, only the music of a beating heart
Your smiles are not for me

You know...you know...you know
I loved you then
You know...you know...you know
You broke me
You know...you know...you know
It will never be the same

From the darkness came the light of awakening
From the ocean deep came absolution
From fire came restoration
From the earth came strength

From here I move into the future
I sing for me
I smile for me
I love for me

You know...you know...you know
You know...you know...you know

Art

I won't be posting on the blog much if any, anymore. It seems that I have the wrong approach to posting the pieces I write, so I have been told. According to outside sources, I should not care if anyone reads this blog. I should only write for myself. I don't think I'll be doing much writing for public or private.

Whats the point of writing a story or poetry if you can not share it? Whats the point of painting a picture if you can not share it? Whats the point of art if you can not share it? I've been told that it shouldn't matter if you share art, and that the only reason I share art is for self aggrandizing-so I have been told.

So I am putting my ego in check and keeping my art in my mind.

May we meet again.
