Names

A Poem by Night Edge
"

A version done by my good friend Geoff can be heard here: http://files.fawmers.com/orinoco/names2.mp3

"
So we’re dancing in this masquerade
Feelings fade
As we twirl
What about this world?
Where have you been?
Your soul in context
Is so dreary dull
I laid it against the concrete to
See if it would match
But hey, hey, hey
Here’s the catch

Chorus
Your name is just a way just a way just a way
To tie us down
So let’s throw it around
Your name is just a way
Just a way
Just a way
To get away get away get away get away
From the truth of it all
The truth is in us all

Did you hear them singing
In a droll
Delightful way
What can I say?
Are you still here?
Your life meaning
Has become unclear
I threw it away
You didn’t need it anymore
But stop right there
Like you did before

Chorus

If you turn around
And sigh
I promise I won’t leave
Do you believe?
Is that some tears?
I’ll try and
Wash away your fears
But what if they’re
The same as mine
The damn clock is ticking
All the time

Chorus

I listened to Geof's song version today as I re-read. Well worth a listen. He has a good voice that gives the lines a greater power to mesmerise.

smiling at you

centrifugal, poetic prose.

I agree with Mauricio! This is sweetened music to my sullied ears. I say life is for the taking and the clock is just a bloody clock, I would rather not fear it or hear it, because this life is mine. I don't do dictatorships, only relationships.

What if

whatever is meant to be
is
just the perfect cup of tea?
If you don't taste it
you may never know.

Life is what it is, like now! I am talking crap, babbling in fact.

Smiling at you

Tai, bedding down

Smiling at you

Tai, loving those
