And when she woke up from the deep slumber she had vanished to, her soul was shaking, and her body was trembling. Something was different. She was different. One look, one touch had unraveled her stoic self, and now she was a stranger. She did not recognize her reflection in the mirror. She did not understand her thoughts. Her voice was new to her ears. An unusual desire to be alive and present struck her like lightning in the sand. And her iridescent self shone brighter for everyone to see. One touch, one kiss, had turned the key and opened her cage. She was not hidden anymore. The veil that had protected her from curious eyes had been lifted. She took a deep breath and smiled. It had taken a while, but today she was grateful for yesterday’s memories.
I am weak, but I can’t let you go with a sad song in your eyes. I am selfish, but I refuse to let you slip out of my life. I am ready to beg you to love me, but that is not the issue. You love me enough. I cannot say goodbye to you because I cannot breathe when you are not in my life. And the tears that leave dark dots on my clothes, they mock me. Wasn’t it me who said it is okay either way? Please stay! Don’t go away! But you have to, and I miss you forever and a day. Kiss me just one more time so that I remember how to feel alive.
This song can be found on the 1987 released album “Appetite for Destruction”. My favourite songs on this record are “Think about you” and “Rocket Queen”.
I had a big crush on Izzy Stradlin when I discovered music. Sadly, by that time, the best moments of this band were almost over and the band members battling their egos and various addictions didn’t help matters either. Anyway, while most girls had posters of Axl Rose, I had one of Izzy.
I came across the video of “Sweet Child o Mine” on an MTV 80s channel and… I enjoyed it. I thought, I’d share. And honestly, Axl Rose was something to look at with his tight pants and moves. Lol… That was shallow, but as always, honest.
Little by little the moon shines brighter in her eyes Even though the sun lives as a shadow by her side She cannot outrun the dreams that wake her up at night But she is not alone, she has someone to hold her tight.
I want to strip myself bare of every thought and every dream Until I feel the kiss of the crisp winter’s breath. Could I slip out of my skin and into your mind? The maelstrom of unspoken words turns into our lost story.
Hammock are an American duo from Nashville, Tennessee. Their genre is a mix of shoe-gazing, ambient, electronic, and neo-classical. That’s difficult for: their music is relaxing and meditation is easy with them on the turntables.
The album “the longest year” was re-released for its 10th anniversary. It was released on colourful vinyl and I was amongst the lucky ones to grab a unique piece for myself.
The nebula edition is handmade which makes every copy a unique and beautiful piece.
Anyway… I had a quiet day. I am tired, under the weather, and just a little empty while overflowing. As you probably noticed, I deleted or drafted many of my recent posts and also decided to go quieter again. I mean… I take up space and time, and you could spend that time learning something, helping someone, reading something that makes you laugh…
