be still..my heart...






Have you ever floated above..?
Kissed the one you love?
Have you ever felt that ..taken away?
A red circle..on her wedding day

Have you scaled the heights..
Danced through nights?
Have you been pushed down?
the deepest pit....alone?

remember what it was like..?

The first time you took your bike..
Down that hill..
The wind
in your face..
heart race..
spinning wheels..
of pure......

And
have you ever felt
true choking dark?
A vicious dogs bark..

Have you ever lost
your daughter
In a mall..?
Only to wake..
To her shiny blues..
The very next day..

Have you ever been given
A blood red rose..?
The reddest of roses..
On the whitest of tables..
With the sweetiest scent..
And the richest of textures..
Amidst the sharpest thorns..
painfully..
drawing...Drops...
that match..
The petals..

The heart...is remarkably
Delicately durable..
Just remarkable..
Pumping..
Soaring
s
i
n
king
Living..
Flexing..
Giving..
Taking..
Mercilessly..
compassionate..

be still..be still..
my heart..
But not
Just
yet..

Yes, the heart is durable. Not just emotionally, but physically as well. never stops pumping. the muscles never tire out.

Hi David,

If its not too complicated, may I ask how do you get these music onto your blog?

David--

Gorgeous...you've really captured it-the ecstasy, the pain, the bliss, the terror...

But...why "be still"?

Be still..cuz sometimes it just gets too intense..

David--
Okay, I hear. But still, it's the vitality of that intensity that keeps one inspired and moving and growing...
Right?

And by the way, a bit off topic, but if I'm not mistaken, that symbol you used as a fork for one of your previous posts is the Greek letter "psy" and stands for psychology in today's day... Just thought that was an interesting tidbit...

What a way with words.

Did something trigger this or is it just the usual melodrama?

And I'm with CP -- don't EVER tell your heart to be still. Though it does sound so poetic. :-P

I'm also with Dreamer -- whoever gave you the red rose on the white tablecloth should've made sure it was smooth first :-P

Can you tell I'm feeling contrary today?! Sorry, it's not you...

CornerPoint...
absolutely...thats why I ended with..
But not
just
yet

I knew it was a greek letter..didnt know it was the symbol of psychology though..so thanks for that tidbit..


Bas_M.....
Thanks...
Life is full of triggers..not enough silencers though..(if were going with the gun analogy..)

Some people are old school flower people..a rose is meant to have flowers..so there it is..
:-)

Miriam..
sure thing..

For the heart to be still is vital--just as important as it is for it to be active.
(I think.)

(that's an affirmative "i think.")

I suppose one does need calm periods in life...
good point..
It also heightens..the other times..

isnt that the old philosophical debate.. between Descartes and Rousseau?

I think, therefore I am

vs

I feel, therefore I am
