Reflections On The Outside

It's strange how looking ahead far
enough you see only backwards
and how the same name for now and forever
is the only name that became you

And as that light moves slowly
out into space and
everything disappears I'll be waiting for you
when nothing happens, and I hope
somehow we disappear together
.

thanks you guys. I am having a hard time writing lately. I also injured my forearm playing the guitar too much and that is frustrating me. I wanted to post some music to the blog but that will have to wait till my arm heals. I cant work out with my right arm either and am going through a mild depression. ther than those minor things though everything is OK :)

I hope your arm gets feeling better. I don't like it when something ails me. I have trouble thinking straight too when I don't feel good.
I love this that you wrote. I think you write really well when your a little bit depressed;~) But I don't want you to be depressed.

It was beautifully written. The first two lines of the first stanza are very witty! I am also very drawn to the last two lines "when nothing happens, and i hope somehow we disappear together"

You write in a way that reaches to me, which people have not been able to do until now.

Hope that your forearm gets better.

is this about yourself or yourself and another person? just curious because it seems it can be read either way. it's very moving. :)
