Wash

Never meant to waste your time
never meant to fall out of line
I was trying to get closer to you
Now it seems with every step
feels like I'm losing my breath
I don't know what else I can do

but you wash over me
you wash over me like rain
and you wash over me
you wash over me like sunshine

I never had to choose
living a life with you
or chasing lies only half true
when our love would be
a world alone with you and me
than hiding behind these walls

when you wash over me

Emma Goldman

The motto should not be: Forgive one another; rather understand one another.

China's cinema has been rising for some time; it has more exposure, so my chances of becoming internationally known are better. But the first thing I have to do is learn English. If I can grasp the language, then perhaps I can think about the U.S.

The Carillon

Alone
I sit in the dusk and see
Surely the living faces, dear to me,
Of comrades who have thrown
All that they had, the fruit of all desire,
Upon an altar fire.

They heard,
Above all clamour of the crowd,
The music of their own hearts throbbing loud
Until the air was stirred
Into a summoning harmony; and so
We saw them rise, and go.

The sound,
That love set ringing in those years
Of agony, exultation, voiceless fears,
And hopes now underground,
Shall not be silenced; it is thrilling yet,
And we shall not forget.

Quotation ... A writer expresses himself in words that have been used before because they give his meaning better than he can give it himself, or because they are beautiful or witty, or because he expects them to touch a cord of association in his reader, or because he wishes to show that he is learned and well read. Quotations due to the last motive are invariably ill-advised the discerning reader detects it and is contemptuous the undiscerning is perhaps impressed, but even then is at the same time repelled, pretentious quotations being the surest road to tedium.

Look Me In The Eyes

(carly simon)
Wont you give me all your limes
And I will give you a reason
Ill rub them on my body
And smell like the west indies
And when Im feelin like the islands
And Im giving you all my sighs
I beg you when you love me -
Look me in the eyes
Its your heat that makes me warm
Makes me climb on you like a tree
And I dont need no fancy dancing
When you bend over me
Well be like two lazy sunbathers
Swaying palm trees against the sky
And I beg you when you love me -
Look me in the eyes

I think it would be impossible if you had a name like mine not to get a little flack for it.

Why?

Why can't any any one one understand me?
Why can't anyone see how upset I am?
Why do I get made fun of?
Why must I be in the wrong place each and every time?
Why do people look at me differently?
Why do my friends hurt me?
Aren't we all the same?

The Buyers

To an apple-woman's stall

Once some children nimbly ran;
Longing much to purchase all,
They with joyous haste began
Snatching up the piles there raised,
While with eager eyes they gazed
On the rosy fruit so nice;
But when they found out the price,
Down they threw the whole they'd got,
Just as if they were red hot.


*

The man who gratis will his goods supply
Will never find a lack of folks to buy!

Gusts Of Wind

Gusts of wind blowing hard
all across the land
across the shores and deserts,
gusts blowing sand.

Sometimes starting as breezes
then building in intensity,
swirling and creating noises
that whistle a symphony.

Catching the sounds of wind chimes
clanging loud and clear,
ringing in many different tones,
tones that you can hear.

These gusts of wind intrigue me.
I wonder how they start?
Sometimes they come so quickly
and then when they depart
