got a text this morning from my pippy informing me she had gotten a text from her dear friend saying chris had died. took me hours to get on here, i was too scared & sad, still am. i guess he was 52, same age as the old-man when he went.


a crushing sound wall

?where are our flowers  

i'm told, "you gotta plant 'em yourself, you bastard" 

nice...


got out the big dictionary in hopes of... something... (anything)

cranking pinkpop's, "jesus christ pose"

"right turn", holy fucking shit

perfection found people all fucked up 

sky's great tightening rotation

i think there's more music upstairs w/ layne  


go to there & be well again some more


to be continued -

    going away with a few angels

    your mirror the lake on skids

    hummingbirds have arrived feeding in your beauty

    of course (my) delicate tears fall here

    there are no borders only bones

    no delighted flesh just ash to recall

    but a rainbow sounds like you

    it may be cold & empty


    how'd your songs  

    they swung in flight

    simply just you & friends

    im not there

    i am not

    there  


    yours are here, there, all over it

    a gift you opened without wrapped box

    there's nothing to it

    so please explain the rest

    where do we land in ending

    where do we land in your ending

    I feel ya, man.  Keep pouring it out.

    Reminds me of the line that sticks in my head (forever) from that song, which to me represents the opposite of my sentiment here...but of which I have been guilty of many a time:

    I have been guilty of kicking myself in the teeth
    I will speak no more of my feelings beneath

    i love you

    you make eyes teary eyed 

    mine bleed heavy


    you are beautiful in blue

    a sky that scraped my skull

    i can't forget that


    a blue rain fell down my skin

    autumn felt cold

    you held my boots in stance  

    today i cry

    mother fucker

    Not sure if you saw this buddy.
    EV is feeling the pain that we all feel, albeit much more acutely as a close friend to Chris.  The ending is so powerful.

    This should always be at the top
    It always will be in my year here
    When i fade 
    Let it remain

    Light my way
  • ShynerShyner Posts: 276

    Light my way
    To a godly place
    I must pray
    And walk away
    I must pray
    To find strength
    Days are long
    Nights a breeze
    Tough times make
    The doubters believe
    Nothing easy
    Temptation tries
    To rip the blood
    Out of my mind
    So it goes
    The grip inside
    To simply say
    One last time
    Goodbye

    No more light
    Blinding my eyes
    Thought of you
    My soul did rise
    No more time
    To think of you
    I won't forget
    The blackest blues
    Stay and share
    This flesh is bare
    And in an end
    Glory is given
    Running empty
    Full of hope
    I won't live in
    Ends of rope
    Stay and share
    Stay and care
    Stay and hurt
    Glory waits

    Shadow On The Sun:

    Staring at the loss
    Looking for a cause
    And never really sure
    Nothing but a hole
    To live without a soul
    And nothing to be learned
