eventually, even the toughest man will surrender to a woman
I’m not so tough
you hold my heart in your hand
I can’t get enough
kindness warmth understanding
it’s not merely love
consciousness thought expanded
in your liquid laugh
sexual sensual love’s desire burning
I’m not that tough
she does not exist to impress
she exists to be possessed
and in turn to possess
alcohol and a highly sexual woman is a dangerous mix
these are the reasons she drinks
these are the reasons she smokes
she’s says she doesn’t do drugs
but I know that she really does
this is the reason she gambles
and is always up on her luck
these are the reasons she fucks
so many young men and boys
treats them like so many toys
I’ve dated many young witches
God! why did I fall for this one?
a broomstick, no bra and no panties
the impossible I can do immediately ~ miracles take a little longer
it’s a miracle
and yet we’re
we cannot do
I wouldn’t do
to be with you
not a fantasy
me loving you
seems a romantic Englishman can do just about anything
ignore the pain and swallow your pride just to be her friend
it didn’t take a lot to fool me
you can do it on any given day
you had no need to deceive
must have been another way
your tangled web to weave
to tell me you were straying
that you belonged to someone
that your love was never mine
and now I can never believe
a single word you ever say
but, it’s you I still adore
in my sad and sorry way
I shall love you evermore
always entangled by love
sometimes a guy settles for second-best
sometimes second-best is more than enough
I HAVE JUST BEEN TOLD THAT THIS SONG IS UNAVAILABLE IN THE USA
a friend knows the songs you keep in your heart
A bolt out of the blue, the flash of lightning inspiration that strikes without warning.
Another album I bought knowing nothing about the singer, or what her music sounded like. Some things are truly serendipitous, they come at you out of the blue.
Synchronicity ~ I have walked on that beach.
Please listen with love in your heart.
every gift from a real friend is a wish for your true happiness
one day someone new will walk into your life
and make you see why it never worked with anyone else
out of the blue
love fresh, new
strong and true
did I know you?
did I adore you?
just once before
and her blue eyes melted my heart
and then the rain clouds came crashing into my life
well past midnight again
in a bar dismal and alone
looking out on hard rain
I’m feeling like hell in here
sadness, sorrow, and pain
she was ever the only one
can’t be scared of the dark
it’s pulling my heart apart
losing a girl you love hurts
let it rain on me, let it rain
some people enjoy the rain
others merely get wet
‘What a funny, dirty little mind!’
I have a friend who says that she has never seen the movie The Thomas Crown Affair. The 1968 film with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway was so incredibly cool and laden with style that everyone who wants to be voguish should see it. It has one of the strangest theme songs of all time; The Windmills of Your Mind ~ sort of sung by Noel Harrison.
There was a 1999 remake starring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.
This song has to be in my top 100, if I ever get around to having a top 100.
Please listen without wanting to become a glider pilot, or drive a beach buggy on a beach. Watch the movie without wanting to become a thief.
just a surreal picture
a bit like the movie
So, who do you want to be tomorrow?
my wish is to wake up a better person than when I went to bed
We always want what we think we can’t have ~ that’s just human nature. It’s striving to get what we think we can’t have, to dream the impossible dream, to find new experiences and new loves that makes men and women do things like climb Mt. Everest, invent the wheel, put a man on the moon, and besiege Troy for the love of Helen. And every time ordinary people said they were crazy.
If we become a better person we are not only able to take better care of ourselves, we can also take better care of others, especially the people we have feelings for, especially the one we love the most of all.
When you take care of yourself, you’re a better person for others. When you feel good about yourself, you treat others better. ~ Solange Knowles.
Ergo, the first thing you should want to become is a superior version of yourself. Look after yourself, get healthier, fitter, stronger in body, mind, and spirit ~ get control of your emotions, get out in the fresh air and sunshine, get some exercise, read some good books, listen to some uplifting talks on YouTube….. Not only that, take a good hard look at yourself and be brutally honest; are you looking as good as you could? Hair, manicure, clothes, shoes, is your skin as healthy and glowing as it could be, do you smell nice?
What about your finances? Have you got spare cash at the end of the month, or are you continually broke? Are you in a dead-end job that pays peanuts? Do you actually manage your money, balance your cheque book?
And how are your relationships? Are you still madly in love with your partner, or are you in a dysfunctional relationship? Do you like to see your family regularly, or, like me are you totally estranged? Have your friends all turned to strangers?
You know you need to make some changes and rearrange your whole life, and deep down you really know what it is you need to do ~ so do it. You have had enough lessons from life ~ so use them and unfuck your life. You’d think you’d have made some changes by now, so dump the apathy, and be who who really want to be.
And if you don’t know who you want to be, then find yourself your ideal role model, and become them. It does not even have to be a real person; you may want to be India Jones, James Bond, Achilles, Holly Golightly, Ellen Ripley, or Aphrodite ~ don’t just sit there, do something about it ~ act as if you were that person. You will never become your role model, but along the way you will become a superior version of yourself.
Some say that there are going to be some changes around here ~ tomorrow. And that they are just running around in crazy circles like a rat on a wheel. All I know is I hope we find our way someday soon.
don’t all men just love that kind of discourse with a woman they care about?
believe in love, believe in magic, believe in dreams
Dreaming, I must be dreaming
You have held me in your arms
Magic, it must be your magic
I surrendered to your charms
Dreams, I know I’m dreaming
Or am I really lying next to you
Dreaming, intimate dreaming
In dreams can’t help myself
I’ll fall in love again with you
there’s something about a beautiful witch
