state of mind: inwardly attentive

«the most valuable thing
we can do for the psyche, occasionally,
is to let it rest, wander,
live in the changing light of a room,
not to try to be or do
anything whatever.»

~may sarton

note: to some people contemplation is akin to lunacy. so perhaps is best to have music playing... and not stare at any walls for too long if others are watching, listening, snooping...

«Att fly är livet,
att dröja döden»

«It was the lark, the herald of the morn,
No nightingale: look, love, what envious streaks
Do lace the severing clouds in yonder east:
Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day
Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain tops.
I must be gone and live, or stay and die.»

~Romeo and Juliet, Act 3, Scene 5

it couldn't be any harder

«you left me with goodbye and open arms
a cut so deep i don't deserve
you were always invincible in my eyes
the only thing against us now is time

could it be any harder to say goodbye and without you,
could it be any harder to watch you go, to face what's true
if i only had one more day

i lie down and blind myself with laughter
a quick fix of hope is what i'm needing
and now i wish that i could turn back the hours
but i know i just don't have the power

i'd jump at the chance
we'd drink and we'd dance
and i'd listen close to your every word,
as if its your last, i know it's your last,
cause today, oh, you're gone

like sand on my feet
the smell of sweet perfume
you stick to me forever, baby
and i wish you didn't go,
i wish you didn't go
i wish you didn't go away
to touch you again,
with life in your hands
it couldn't be any harder»
