tear it all down

TEAR IT ALL DOWN


Powered by Castpost

It's been a profound, emotional and intense 48 hours. I can't thank you all enough for just being there, for the comments and the emails and the incredibly kind and wise words. I'm touched beyond belief.

And I've emerged from my cocoon somewhat wiser, and definitely with stronger wings.


Pressed up against this shop front
Drawing faces there in Crayon
Its a long way from the pocket full of rain
And you have walked the streets for hours
With your loose change and your flowers
And now I'll learn your body like a nursery rhyme in braille
Its a simple explanation for the paths that you have taken
You have stumbled from the cradle to a prayer
But in this darkened room we have got heart enough to burn
We can dance away the hours we can leave our questions there
and we'll tear it all down
So welcome to our winning streak no broken bones or old deceits
Its you and me versus this little town
We're the rag dolls in the gutter we're the curses that they'll mutter
And you will still be trying on my heart just like a crown
and we'll tear it all down
I know your tactics all the practice this bravery took
And the flags are flying you're trying out a different look
So theres a candle in the window I've got a lousy history of tomorrows
So I'll spill the beans in every little sound
You are the creaking of the door
you are the chorus of applause
You are wishbones and the axis that these songs will spin around


I'm leaving my journal right there on the table for you, handle it carefully.

DF,
Please send me that email..I care so much and I know nothing..
And of course, we will treasure it, love it, and reread it over and over again to remind us of the beauty and power of love,

Wiser and with stronger wings is a huge blessing from something not so good. I'm very happy for you. I think we all know hurt- in different ways- and are touched by support and caring. When you're hurt, thats when support is best to lean on, to cradle you, to ease the pain.

Of course you're staying. I knew you would. You're far stronger than you know, DF... you just need to remember that.

And of course, to know how much strength you can glean from those of us who love you. Which -- even without ~S~ -- is a LOT..!

Kisses,

Minxxxxxx
