Tapestry

Interwoven patterns in parts
A tapestry of confusion
Truth unknown to the curious heart
Articulate your devotion
Believe though you have fallen
Love what you adore
Even the fallen may once again flourish
If you just trust a little more

Him

The sunrise to end my night
The colour to paint my life
The music to keep me dancing
The ease to end my strive
The eyes to my darkening sight
The lips that I call mine
The smile that gives me life
The nicest kind of kind
Troubling my peaceful slumber
This sleeping heart is now awake
…The very cause of my pain
…The only cure for my ache

Yours

It was forgotten

Then I am reminded

Never was it lost

Though I thought I lost it

Buried deep

Silent and guarded

Yours to keep

If you just say it

Myth

The world is closing in

Fatal darkness in the air

Touching souls with filth

She is caving in

He’s supposed to care

But his love’s… a myth

I Wonder

You’re happy when I’m happy,
What will happen when I’m sad?
 
You’re perfect when things are perfect,
What will happen when things go mad?
 
Level-headed, calm and collected,
When things are good, you’re good as good can get
 
A joy in easy water,
But how are you with violence you haven’t met?

I have to say that the single most important lesson I learned in 25 years talking every single day to people was that there is a common denominator in our human experience. Most of us, I tell ya, we don’t want to be divided. What we want—the common denominator that I found in every single interview—is that we want to be validated. We want to be understood.

I’ve done over 35,000 interviews in my career, and as soon as that camera shuts off everyone always turns to me and inevitably in their own way ask this question: “was that ok?”

I heard it from President Bush. I heard it from President Obama. I’ve heard it from heroes and from housewives. I’ve heard it from victims and perpetrators of crime. I even heard it from BE-YON-CÉ in all of her Beyoncé-ness. She finishes performing, hands me the microphone, and says “was that ok?” [x]

Tom Odell - Another Love

Stay
Chanced encounter
Stars were aligned
He remembers
As she of each line
Innocent killers
Risen atop
In him lies the answer 
Her attention he robbed
Stars shined upon them
Strangers in love
Whispers of names
Of his touch as she starves
Darkness was lit
By the truth of the day
Goodbye, she said
As a piece of her stays

That’s what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending - performing. You get to love your pretense. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act - and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.” ― Jim Morrison
