The Song or the Memory?

Ever have those times when you are driving along and a song will come on the radio and just take you back in time in your mind? Like an emotional trigger, you find yourself thinking of people, of places of when you first heard the song.   A movie that I thought captured the ideal was probably Forest Gump, where the music was just as important in telling the story of Forest’s life.  If I could build a playlist of my life through music, I am sure that the top ten songs would be from those important family moments, or even the world events that happened at the time.

Sadly for me, the song that stands out in bringing an emotional response, relates to the death of a beloved Aunt.  I can’t help but burst into tears whenever I hear it.  Both for the lyrics, and the memory of losing someone that I adored from cancer.

Where is the Humanity?

The visions on the screen haunt my waking hours

People suffering in so many ways, so many places

It’s hard to fathom it all

My heart cries and my voice shouts at the screen

The world is mad, I tell myself

The compassion and humanity I yearn to see, replaced by desensitization

What ever happened to the Great Australian nation?

Men in suits with agendas that have nothing to do with the chaos

Twisting their words, spun into grand ideals that bare no fruit

When did the public voice go unheard?

Even the average Joe knows dropping bombs won’t solve a thing

It’s a war that no one can win

 

 

 

Submit.

 

Teasing words that dare my inhibitions

Stripping away the shy exterior

To reveal bare flesh for your eyes only

A hiss through gritted teeth

I respond with the tremor of my thighs

Every second; longer than the next

Anticipation building…..climbing

Almost dizzy as I await your touch

Bedroom eyes stare to the wall

Heated breath escapes my parted lips

Rounded buttocks flinch at the slightest sound

You’re behind me, I know you’re there

Hair pulled back, caught within fingers tight

Never will I resist you

For this night you shall have your fill

My body….my sacrifice

The surrender to be the sweetest thing

I want to believe

I want to believe

In the words they say

The promises they make

The plans they lay

 

But everyday

You get a different view

The people are now

So very confused

 

We want leadership

Someone to admire

Someone to trust

But the dreams

of the people

are turning into dust

 

More talk of war

Less on equality

Less on love

All I see now

Is the death

Of the white peace dove
