“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.

If you would like to suggest a song for future use – please add a comment below and I will see what I can do.

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…

“And there’s only one way down”…

~

On top of the world…

Looking out, peering down…

Above the snow white clouds…

Like an eagle flying around…

In the crystal blue skies…

Where the Sun’s rays dance…

He’s hanging by a thread…

And his fate is left to chance…

It’s wrapped inside a whisper…

From so very long ago…

He’s not even sure what happened…

On the Earth spinning far below…

Underneath his tired feet…

As his eyes drift in and out…

His thoughts make little sense…

And his mind is full of doubt…

Should he just forget this…

Or take a leap of faith…

And dive into the clouds…

Falling further into disgrace…

Inside an echo of a memory…

Where the clouds reveal her face…

And eyes that mesmerise his soul…

He yearns for her embrace…

Because words are being repeated…

And he’s heard them all before…

In this world where everything has been…

And everything has gone; It is the law…

The law of this Godforsaken planet…

Where we replay others’ mistakes…

Walking in someone else’s shoes…

Swimming in a dead man’s wake…

They aren’t his, they’re Human…

He’s not the first and won’t be the last…

Simply one of the imperfect sinners…

Who never learned from histories past…

Now he’s on top of the world…

Looking out, falling down…

Flying through the cotton wool clouds…

Until he finally hits the ground…

“Dust to dust and fire to ashes”…

Is he asleep…
Or is he awake…
Is this a dream…
And his reality fake…

Nothing makes sense…
His thoughts conflict…
Everything he’s touched…
Has just fallen to bits…

A mental disaster…
All of his making…
His head of confusion…
Leaves him stood shaking…

Afraid of his memories…
Regretting sinful desires…
He knows he’ll end up…
In Hell’s emotional fires…

On a one way ticket…
There will be no return…
He will be consumed…
Aware his soul will burn…

He doesn’t know when…
And he doesn’t know where…
So he stumbles through life…
Blinded by his despair…

As he’s stuck in a moment…
One fragment of time…
Replayed over and over…
But he can never rewind…

He can’t repair the damage…
Or pretend it’s not real…
All that’s been done…
Time just refuses to heal…

The hand that grabbed her…
By her slender throat…
Till her lifeless body…
Began to silently float…

Now she’s asleep…
And will never awake…
Her never ending dream…
His one big mistake…
