as I hold you close
nose nestled in your hair
I swell with ancient love
and want to wrap myself round you
and gather you to my soul
beyond all words and explanations
this knowledge that you,
scarred and broken as you are,
are precisely the right shape
to fill this hole in me


Inspired by love, and also by Rihanna – Stay:

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

Ohhh the reason I hold on
Ohhh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the lights it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not giving in

This song has been stuck in my head today and has become a kind of mantra against the dark and gloomy mood I’m falling into … “this time I’m gonna be stronger, I’m not giving in”. As it was stuck in my head I went to YouTube to find it and discovered that it has a very inspiring and humbling video with it – sad but hopeful – 2 different choices made by these young lads with one ending up in joy with dancing but the other ending up dead on the street. Reminds me how lucky I am and how much I should fight against sinking into the darkness. Anyway, enough rambling on – please watch the video.
