Another thread is cut
Like scissors shearing cloth
All that binds is falling
It can’t be stopped

So little holds us together
A constant emptying of forever
Washing away upon the tide
A moon upon the slide

Celluloid burning memories
Those eyes that no longer see
Spinning sounds, thrashing art
Words so rarely bleed

But your words bled for me
Echoing wants and needs
Filling moments when it rained
In the darkness of my pain

    I did a doubletake when I saw the title of this post. I recently wrote a piece of music titled “The Fallen”. You could do a search on my site and find it or go to It’s in the list. To me, I could hear the music playing when I read your words, or maybe it was just me. The last section, “But your words bled for me, echoing wants and needs, filling moments when it rained in the darkness of my pain.” is beautiful. When I previously asked people what they saw in the music and they said it sounded like rain or leaves falling. ( it was during autumn) I write music about pain. You will find the word in some of my music titles. I write when I’m feeling emotional. I need to come back and read more of your posts.

      I was listening to some music of yours the other day on sound cloud and I shall definitely look up the fallen. I love the idea of how you play and record music. Freedom within in a discipline is beautifully brave.

        Thank you so much Pete. It is wonderful to find someone who understands. I was just talking to my mother and asked her, ” Why is it that someone I don’t know can perceive and understand why I write and the people close to me (family) doesn’t. To them I am a negative – to the world, I’m not. So thank you – I needed to read this today.
