Pictures of You

 

this melody is playing

in the back of my mind

my heart is yearning for you

and my hair is turning grey

 

i have bills to pay

and i have been drinking

my money away

 

tell me the tears

falling from my face

are not real

though you have lied to me

more than one time before

 

the picture of us

is fading on the wall

as the dust collects

around the rim

 

maybe i should have left you

but you rocked my world

than you turned it upside down

 

why did you have to go

my blood has spilled on the ground

from my bleeding heart

 

i had a friend pull the dagger out of me

yesterday is just a passing dream

but i will always love you

just the same

OK, you are sad, but what does it mean? There are 7 Billion people in the world (as of last year), and roughly half of them are female. So if one girl doesn't work out I think it's pretty goddam obvious you try for one -- or maybe even several -- others. Sooner or later you are bound to click. Move out and move on ....

Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

hey brendan i just like writing crap like this. yes i have moved on. once you f--k someones brains out it is hard to forget lol... and i know there are several beautiful smart ladies out there that will want me in the future. call it foresight. it is her loss not mine. the hard part is we grew up together. the memories you share are hard to forget.

"as the dust collects

Brilliantly sad, or sadly brilliant: I dunno. I just know I like it.

Lash, I seldom comment on your work, which I find somewhat maudlin, forgetting the stupid shit I write. I like this one; I think you put a lot of work into it, or else it just tripped off your tongue--well, fingers in this case. Bren spoke truly; there are billions floating around. One will find you.

I like your lyrical, nostalgic melancholia, Victor. My favorite parts:

 

... i have bills to pay

and i have been drinking

my money away ...

 

tell me the tears

falling from my face

are not real

though you have lied to me

more than one time before

 

the picture of us

is fading on the wall

as the dust collects

around the rim ...

And yes, it's her loss. As others have already said, on to the next one(s)! :tongue: And always remember: fifty percent of a woman's charm is illusion. At least!
