Day 1
hi there- or here or something along those lines.
im going to tell you some rather personal things tonight.
i've been living in a new town for a while now and my whole life and lifestyle has changed. im living the life of a gypsey, one could say. in my free time i read and sleep and go out to wherever something is happening. in my non-free time i do more or less the same. i've become the laziest bastard i know. in three days i watched every movie showing at the local circuit. i eat non-stop and drink before i go to bed and when i wake up in the mornings. im not an alco-holic, im just bored out of my shell. i wish it would rain.
i actually cried for the first time in more than a year when i read Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. its something rather different.
"If our friendship depends on things like space and time, then when we finally overcome space and time, we've destroyed our own brotherhood! But overcome spac

Secret Garden
Bruce Springsteen
Secret Garden
She'll let you in her house
If you come knockin' late at night
She'll let you in her mind
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She'll let you deep inside
But there's a secret garden she hides
She'll let you in her car
To go drivin' round
She'll let you into the parts of herself
That'll bring you down
She'll let you in her heart
If you got a hammer and a vise
But into her secret garden, don't think twice
You've gone a million miles
How far'd you get
To that place where you can't remember
And you can't forget
She'll lead you down a path
There'll be tenderness in the air
She'll let you come just far enough
So you know she's really there
She'll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She's got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away..

I wrote this on 18 December 2003 for someone who once meant very much to me, a confidante and friend whose circumstances went from bad to worse very quickly. I never saw her again after she told me about the slimy alien. I was 16 at the time.
18 December 2003
Dedicated to T, whom I miss dearly and for whom I continue to have endless empathy. She did not deserve what was brought upon her.
I saw a world where we could be free.
I saw it in a dream- destiny.
Where the moonlight penetrates
The forest canopy black
To lighten your perfect visage
The wind in the trees- in your hair
The beauteous knowledge that this life we share
Is one of primal purity and simplicity
This world I see is a perfect world
Where one sleeps bare on the fertile floor
Of pine needles soft as cotton
A world for you and I alone
To spend our eternal lives
I believe this world will find me
But lacking you, it is empty-
As the void left in my soul
By the loss of its fire, that once you fuelled
I ask what good is a life of

Lyrical beauty
Later (extract)
Wel wel wel, zo zal dat gaan
En we sterven heel bedaard
Op een donderdag in maart,
tegelijk...daar hecht ik aan.
En als onze aardse last
Met de wereld gaat vergroeien
Zal uit jou een bloempje bloeien,
Een viooltje...dat staat vast
Tekst en muziek: Herman van Veen

The most wonderful thing..
"The most wonderful of all things in life is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase. This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvellous thing; it cannot be found by looking for it or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident, and the most wonderful of all things in life."
                                                          -Sir Hugh Walpole-

Silently,I,with words like knives
Withhold truth,restrain my mouth
Voiceless love,unspoken pain
Separates two parallel lives
What is so filthy here?
Fueling repulsion and fear
This pantomime,this scene
Your act harvests my tears
Bring salvation,eat my bruised heart
Condemn my love,my vice,my sin
Take the vile blood,the flesh within
But tear me never again,apart.

Under the Red Sky
Under the Red Sky
'Ere the day died calmly down
Danced they under skies of frown
White skin so soft as to enthrall
A sky of blood afore th'evenfall
Not One could conceal the pain
Shared,at last together,again
They'd embrace their full moon
And together softly croon
Their song to the sea
Of their love decree
Not to wither,
Never to pass.

Sweet Scorn
Under the stars,across the sea
Over waters dark and vast
Out of reach, within your heart
Dream a night,of you and me
Each day afast,the moon and I
Eternities await, until the Time
Of my sweet scorn,I am set free-
Homeward bound and closer to thee.

Original Sin
Original Sin
Your silent murmering tells no lies
The expression on that tired face
Confusion sinks to the heart of you
And slow tears roll down from your eyes.
You carry a burden we cannot share
We carry a scorn that is the past
Your unspoken crime suspended here
Brought this division further near.
Forever to come in silent thought,
Led back past denial,a path once trod,
You will taste the fruit of your sin,
Letting all feeling out but no-one in.

Weet je nog
Weet je nog? Toen de wind de bomen
Tergde en hen de mantels van het lichaam trok
Dat wij samen -de regen kletterde bij stromen-
Schuilden en jij zo schrok toen ik je zei
Dat dit het eind was, en voorgoed
Onze wegen voortaan zouden scheiden
"Mijn arm kind, 't is droevig maar het moet
Beter is het heen te gaan". Ik zweeg en jij schreidde
Weet je nog? Toen mijn hand de jouwe
Zachtjes drukte, omdat jij spoedig zou zien
Dat ik niet de beste was en dat jij
Door je tranen heen lachte en zei "Misschien"
Nu is het herfst opnieuw
En regen, maar alleen
Schuil ik onder 't lover, denk aan jou
En ween.
