Bitter Nothing- A poem about...well you tell me

Updated on February 12, 2013

My eyes have become tied down

Twisted to the loosened ends of fate

Watching as our hopes and downfalls

Become one and separate

So count the minutes, they are so spare

Filled with tokens of pure despair

Cause I’m trying to see tomorrows sky

And holding on has never been so hard

It seems to be, I’m only me

Two hands, two eyes, eternity

Cause I can see forever

It’s in that moments glance

That every tear glimmers with a new story

And a new hope that’s gives a chance for the next day

I could close my eyes and pray

But I’ve decided I’m my own god

And any form of asking comes threw me

Cause I decide the moments tide

The emotions captured in a second

Depend on whether I say it can be that way

So please don’t disregard the common

Cause it’s what makes us all this way

Reach out for tomorrow like no new day will arise

Cause without a hope and wish for something

We’re left with a bitter nothing

      You also have the flair and the pedigree of a born songwriter - I can see/read it in your lyrical style which always reads like a personal manifesto from your beautiful heart. And without great words from writers like you Sean then we are truly left with a bitter nothing.

      I extract influences in my writing most definitely from songwriters and music and also from history and cultural references.

      So great to hook up with you on this Saturday night here by the lake listenig to a cowboy songwriter by the name of Tom Russell.

      I often write to jazz music or soundtrack music or the silence of the lake on my walks around the bay - well, lol, that's yin and yang for you.
