“Eye Will Not Cry” – What’s it all about?…

“Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes” is a lyric by Cher and such a true statement that fits into all aspects of our life.

Verbally, words have the capacity to rip you in half, yet I find that when words are written on a page, it somehow feels even more poignant.

In some way, it adds a bit of gravitas to what is being said and of course, without the tone or body language to accompany, the written words then become open to individual interpretation.

I find it interesting that different things can be read into words set as lyrics or poems. Both have played a huge part of my life and as you will see through these pages, I have been inspired by other people’s words for this blog.

A song title, a lyric here or a sentence there ~ provoking a trickle of inspiration and leading to a flood of words of my own. They are just words, however they can be read in so many ways and they carry so much, or so little, depending on the intent of the writer, or of course the desire of the reader.

With all the above in mind, “Eye Will Not Cry” is a collection of rambles from a now 40 yr old. Amongst the longer rambles (They are in here somewhere) are poems and each poem is accompanied by a musical soundtrack via the youtube link.

I encourage you to listen to the songs and connect the dots yourself. However, please note, that the connection between my words and the music is mine – your interpretation of my words, is of course yours.

Some poems make sense, some don’t. Some reveal a lot, some reveal nothing at all. Don’t take it all at face value, but read between the lines. Please read this with your soul and ignore the warning signs.

Eye will not cry…

Eye will stay strong…

Eye know they lied…

Eye know they were wrong…

Eye felt such a fucking fool…

Eye was so very blind…

Eye didn’t see it coming…

Eye went out of my mind…

Eye just couldn’t sleep…

Eye felt so very sad…

Eye began to hate them…

Eye really took it bad…

Eye tried my best to move on…

Eye got overwhelmed by it all…

Eye just couldn’t let it go…

Eye wanted them to feel small…

Eye started to despise them…

Eye couldn’t let go of the past…

Eye watched them from a distance…

Eye felt like such an outcast…

Eye couldn’t erase the memory…

Eye wanted to gain revenge…

Eye wanted to hit them hard…

Eye wanted to avenge…

Eye now regret my actions…

Eye know I lost control…

Eye became so obsessed…

Eye got sucked into a dark hole…

Eye didn’t mean to hurt them…

Eye got swept up in my hate…

Eye now feel so very sick…

Eye know it’s much too late…

Eye cannot change the past…

Eye can’t undo what has been done…

Eye can only move forward…

Eye hate what I’ve become…

Eye will never cry…

Eye will continue to stay strong…

Eye know that deep inside…

Eye can admit that I was wrong…
