Oh,
but I am going to regret you
in the morning
and the way
you made
my skin feel
too real for living.
I went at you
with hands too clean
for this world
and a heart
full of dirty days
and violated your wings
and coveted
the lump in your throat.
You
brought me something
eternal
as precious
as a new name
that I almost recognized

as hope....
...

Hmmm....sometimes when I have the feeling of hope, I push it back because it hurts way more if it doesn't work out. Gorgeous Brendan. hit a little too close to home I think, this one.

Another piece that reminds me of a jazz club. As I read this I imagined a slow sultry beat, a womans voice in tenor slow and smooth, pausing for effect yet still moving forward, touching upon perhaps more of inexperience than purity. Hands too clean for this world and a heart full of dirty days is my favorite part of this piece.

I simply love your pieces, each and every one has such feeling and description. I swear, sometimes it's like you tap into what's deep in my own mind and at any given time I see the words here.
I have a hard time expressing my own feelings in writing. :stupidme:
Thanks for sharing your talent.
