TOMORROW

IMG_4598

 

TOMORROW

TOMORROW IS TOMORROW,

AND TOMORROW NEVER COMES,

HANGING AS IT DOES

IN A FUTURE TENSE,

UNSEEN BUT IMMENSE…

 

YESTERDAY IS YESTERDAY,

AND YESTERDAY HAS GONE,

PAST LIKE A COMET,

CLOSE BUT SLOWLY DIMMING,

AN AVOIDED CATASTROPHE.

 

TODAY IS ALWAYS TODAY,

TODAY IS EVERMORE,

THE AGONISING SORE,

OF LOST LONGING

FOR YESTERDAYS.

 

THE FEAR IS THAT TODAY,

WILL LEAVE YESTERDAY BEHIND,

AND TOMORROW WILL ALWAYS LOOM,

AND THAT I, THE IMMORTAL EYE,

WILL SEE TOMORROW TODAY,

AND YESTERDAY TODAY,

AND NEVER FIND PEACE.

BOWIE THE LONG VIEW:

This playlist not only provided the soundtrack to my life but also the narrative.

It’s not a list of favourite Bowie songs, just a selection of tracks from each studio album, not always the ones you might know…

My heart broke the day Bowie died… took a long time to get beyond it, same as with John Lennon, and all the irreplaceable hero that have dropped off the planet… but as you get older, you realise that death though inevitable is not the end. The story lives on.

My soul split in two, the day my beloved Marie died, and all other losses paled in comparison, the story may live on… but it is a horror show. When the person with whom you share your soul with dies, there is no mend and make do. it is a limbless stuttering life you are left with… And no matter how hard you try to make it  have meaning and texture, it is a pale shadow of the place you want to be… Where ever she is now… That’s where I want to be.

Love maybe the answer, but music is now a searing electro-convulsive therapy which strangles my emotional escape and sucks me back down into the darkest places. It is heart-breaking to lose music as an escape from pain.

love to all

VOICE

IMG_4133

 

VOICE

I WAITED MONTHS TO HEAR YOUR VOICE!

AND WHEN I DO, IT SPEAKS IN RIDDLES,

REFUSING TO SAY IF GOD EXISTS…

BUT YOU SAY EVERYTHING IS FINE,

THAT TIME WORKS DIFFERENTLY THERE,

BUT I WANT YOU ALL,

AND I WANT YOU NOW,

AND THEN,

AND ALWAYS…

 

AND I LEFT YOUR VOICE

AS A WHISPER IN JANUARY…

A PUNGENT I LOVE YOU AND A KISS…

AND THEN LOST WITHIN TWENTY MINUTES.

YOU CARED YOUR LAST CARE FOR ME,

YOU LOVED YOUR LAST LOVE FOR ME.

YOU KISSED YOUR LAST KISS WITH ME,

AND I AM LEFT HOLDING A HALF-LIFE,

AND ONLY GOD KNOWS WHY I REMAIN.

 

BUT THIS MORNING YOU CAME RIGHT AT ME,

WITH YOUR VOICE AND YOUR LOVE,

AND I’M UNDONE AND YET PURIFIED,

THE SOUND OF YOU

THE SMELL OF YOU

I HUNGER FOR…

LIKE A VAMPIRE,

YOU ARE MY ONLY SAVIOUR…

FOREVER.

 

I dreamt a dream so clear this morning of my Marie, her love remains.

my love never waivers.

Gacela of the Remembrance of Love BY FEDERICO GARCÍA LORCA

LORCA.jpg
Do not carry your remembrance.
Leave it, alone, in my breast,

tremor of a white cherry tree
in the torment of January.

There divides me from the dead
a wall of difficult dreams.

I give the pain of a fresh lily
for a heart of chalk.

All night long, in the orchard
my eyes, like two dogs.

All night long, quinces
of poison, flowing.

Sometimes the wind
is a tulip of fear,

a sick tulip,
daybreak of winter.

A wall of difficult dreams
divides me from the dead.

A WALL OF DIFFICULT DREAMS… GOOD CALL FREDERICO.

WAVE INERTIA

IMG_3203.JPG

Just before the crash,

The turn of the wave,

Is a moment of inertia…

The front of the wave

Becomes a screen,

And opens up

with pin-point clarity…

The fish-eye world

at the bottom of the sea.

The moment is tantalising,

Feeling perpetual…

like an orgasm,

like a birth,

like a rebirth …

Then the prism moves,

And the clarity clouds…

And the crash of the wave,

Washes the moment away

Like a mirage.

Dale
