The Look

See the windows. See the world. See the tiny blue dot. See the sun. See the moon. See the stars. See the rain. See the joy. See the children. See the lovers. See the night. See the dawn. See the kiss. See the now. See the then. See the always. See the falling. See the running. See the saving. See the goodbye. See the hello. See the fear. See the hope. See the me. See the you.

You need to open your eyes.

The Countdown

The time is near. The world will change. You need to be ready.

Soon.

The Grass

You didn’t walk up stairs when you were a child. You skipped them, two at a time. You didn’t go around the garden. You went straight through. You didn’t avoid walls and fences. You hopped over them.

Life is too short not to walk on the grass.

The Following

You’re like a fire fly, a spark, a glow, a match in the darkness. And I will go wherever the light takes me.

The Depth

In the blue. There is love. Peace. And tranquility. You will find that feeling you miss here. Deep.

In the blue.

The Shop

You asked me if I was comfortable. If I needed or wanted anything else. I told you the mountains, the sea and the sky would be nice.

You went to fetch them. I also need milk now.

The Flame

I will continue to burn. Until you return.

The Overheard

I found an angel tied up in the bathroom at a restaurant. I was about to untie her. You stopped me and told me to ask her first if she wanted to be untied. She smiled and told me she was fine. As we walked out, you told me you can’t argue with angels. They do what they want. Even if they’ve fallen. And you’ve got to respect them for that.

The Being

Be yourself. No one else does it quite as well as you.

The world needs you just as you are.

The Talk

The conversation between your fingers and someone else’s skin. This is the most important discussion you can ever have.

The Hold

Don't let it pass you by. Grab on and hold on.

Just don't hold on for the sake of holding on.

The Clap

You're happy. You know it. So clap your hands.

The Mouth

You have such a beautiful smile. I've only noticed it recently.

The Snow

You don't have to know. You can simply accept.

The Moon

The stars and the planets will guide you but it's your heart that'll show you the way when you get there.

Trust the sky. Trust yourself.

The Frustration

The hardest thing you ever do, will be not doing something.

The Worn

There is a thousand times more beauty in the things you do than the things you own.

The Trees

Sometimes you don't see what's right in front of you.

Sometimes you need the people around you to tell you what's right in front of you.

Listen.

The Plural

We all see the same sky. Even you.

It’s what we see in the sky that makes us different.

The Peace

You have the responsibility to not remain silent.

The Song

Play the song loudly and hear it because you like it. Not because you want them to hear you liking it.

The Importance

I know who you are. Not the you who changes masks for the world every hour of the day, depending on the audience - I know the you behind that. Beyond the tiny voice in your head. Beyond the compromises you make.

I accept you. I understand you. From the order you eat your food in, to the corners of your mouth.

I know you.

The Mantra

You’re as big as the sky. As calm as the sea. As solid as the earth. Burning like fire.

It’s all inside.

The Alone

I wish I could find you. I wish I could touch you. Wrap my arms around you. And whisper “It’s all going to be ok.”

It’s cold tonight.

The Reflection

If you see beauty or pain, life or death, love or fear, it's because you see what you normally see when you look at the world.

Yourself.

The Scratches

Everything scratches. Everything dents. No matter how many times you polish it.

You need to be ok with this. Nothing is new forever.

The Parade

Sometimes the people involved in the ceremony don’t realise it’s just a ceremony.

Look. And you will see.

The Tea

I sat there drinking tea. You told me how you’d hurt yourself today. How there was nothing I could find that could not be found. About the moon and the stars and the gifts they gave. Colour blind. I’d stumble in your footsteps.

Lyrics to songs you spoke instead of sang. Somehow, it was still music.

Stand by me.

The Blue

I hope the blue will bring you back. Because the blue took you away. It’s where you came from. Maybe I’ll go there one day.

The Dark

You said you were fine. You said you were ok. You smiled. Or at least your mouth did. I knew you were lying. The doctor phoned too often. Just to speak to you. That far away look you got in your eyes at the window. The way you held me as if every time you did might be your last. Like you wanted to remember the way my chest felt against yours.

The smell of hair.

The taste of skin.

Fingers along a back.

Familiar patterns.

Lies.

Love.

The Carrying

Picture them in your mind. In that moment. Freeze it. See every detail. Hear every sound. Smell every scent.

They will carry you through the pain.

The Clouds

Place your right hand on your left shoulder blade. Keep it there. Now place your left hand on your right shoulder blade.

And squeeze.

The Remembering

Your life will be remembered. You will be reborn on the lips of story tellers. A whispering around a fire. A telling of a tale.

You will become legend. Then myth. Then simply an idea.

Ask yourself "What do I want to be remembered for? What idea do I want to become?"

Then answer yourself. And do it.

The Ghosts

The people you know. The people you knew. What you’ve learned. Your memories. All these things, these ghosts come together to make up nearly all of who and what you are. The last part is your soul. Your spark.

That is beyond ghosts.

The Stop

If you want to stop the hate, you need to start the love.

The Fear

You need to slow down to really appreciate someone. No one is as scary as you think they are.

The Radio

Sometimes it feels like every song on the radio was written just for you.

Sometimes, they are.

The Water

Drip. Drop. Drip. Through the leaves. Through the trees. Through my fingers. Through your hair.

I see you.

The Others

The world will be ready for you. When you are ready for the world.

The Strength

You are stronger than you know. Stronger than you would believe. Stronger than anything the world has ever seen.

The Time

You’d flown away with your mended wings, years earlier.

I never though I’d see you again.

But you came back. I was old, hobbled and tired. You asked me if I’d still have you, with your old wings and silver hair. It wasn’t age that I saw in that moment. It was timelessness.

The Madness

The madness spreads slowly from your keyboard to your fingers to your arms to your lungs to your heart to your soul.

You can either step back and compose yourself. Or embrace it.

Either one works just fine.

The Web

Busy is good. It means you're not bored.

The Duel

Sometimes you're the frog. Sometimes you're the prince.

The Veins

As you put down the poison, I asked you why you stopped if it felt so good.

You told me that you had a feeling that one day you were going to meet some incredibly important people. Who would love you and care for you more than anyone else in the entire world. And you would feel the same way about them.

And that every time you picked up the poison and ended your life a little bit more, you were stealing from them.

These people who would love you.

They will give you a feeling greater than any poison ever could.

Don’t steal from them.

The Blind

Don’t let your anger blind you. There are things worth seeing. And things not worth your anger.

The Jewels

Nature crowned you with dew as you lay there sleeping. Like a web after the rain. Like stars in the night sky. I didn’t want to wake you. I just wanted to sit and watch a while longer.

The Done

You can't change what you've done. What you can do now and in the future is another story entirely.

Worry less. Do more.

The Sweet

You look nice today.

The Art

Know who and what you are. Embrace it.
