The Shooting Cloud





























If you're tired of trying to fall asleep, sleep on it and try again tomorrow.

If you're all out of promises, I have one left for you: The Earth is still here as long as you're alive.

If you want to yell out your frustrations, I'll understand, just understand that the whole world is screaming, mostly complaining about the noise.

If you're worried about having the poetry knocked out of you of you when you're older, don't. Old blood bleeds as good as new.

If you've got nothing left to feel, just pay the bill and walk away.

If there's anything else, let me know.

Thank you. I needed to hear this today, more than I realized.

I do not fully understand this right now. At first I believed it was not written for me. But then I realized that it is meant for me. For me to write down and store away for now, then when I do need it, your words will be waiting for me and will bring light back into my life. I love you, thank you for you.

I am scared about the poetry leaving me. Writing has been more difficult since I moved south. Your words give me hope for their return.
I owe you more than you can imagine. I need hope to live.

When there's nothing else left, I always come here to find comfort. And I do, every time. So thank you for that.

what if you're all out of words?
what if things just don't come easy for you anymore?
what if you feel trapped?
he felt so right and now he feels like another dead end..

Patches of emptiness... how painfully familiar...
Inspiration is all around, it just craves to be recognised.
If your memories are too fresh, perhaps leaving them alone for a while may bring you to the door you need to open...

I'm trying to accept misery cause I realise I don't have it.
I only create it.

I love this. :)
I wish I had read something like this a month ago, I really needed it. I'm saving it for another time. Thank you. :)

Masterpiece?

There are actually a couple more things, but these would do for the mean time. Thank you for speaking to me.

Yes - there is something else.

Where do I go for the bosnian food?

And no, that is not the "else".

I know everything I need to. I always have. I'm not worried about poetry being taken away from me when I'm older. They were all written for you. At least I write you. Me.

the still, dimpled glass
of rain on a silent bay
twinkles like the stars.
an osprey calls his fish
and spreads with dark intent.
I remember you and my heart furrows
with a longing I can't name.
it is hard to be by water.
then: each wave was blown and molded by the fluttering you in my soul
now: it is this quiet creeping sheet
whose beauty burns.

Thank you, because I don't really know how else to explain it to you. So, thank you, very... very much.

I tried not to leave but I left anyway. Maybe it's just not meant to be? Maybe.

The shooting cloud gives me my hopes and dreams back.

The third one is what gets to me most right now - the whole world is screaming - very few are really listening.

"Old blood bleeds as good as new."

That's so true and wonderfully expressed. Fantastic pic.

I love this reminder. I read it often and it's always brand new.

I've been so depressed. Even small things bring me down. Understanding the long tail of my depression used to bring me so much pleasure, now it brings me nothing at all. No one will ever love me. I will be forever alone. My sex is for me alone, like a computer with no Internet connection, I'm in all senses of the word, useless. I wish I could die now

Even when you are not here, you are not useless. Even when you don't say a thing, you are the one person that makes me smile when I can't. Even when I think you don't, I still love you. I'm beginning to think I can't ever fall out of love with you. oxsa ;-)
