A Little Tighter

Folder: 
Remnants

Just a friendly reminder
As your head falls to the pillow tonight
That you're sleeping alone
Because you used have me at your side
And now you've let me go


You should've held a little tighter
Instead of looking away
You should've called when you were lonely
Instead of making your mistake


You can stare up at the ceiling
While I stare into dark eyes
You can scream into the silence
While I reach into the sky


You should've held a little tighter
When you had me in your life
You should've called me to come to you
Instead of trading wrong for right


So, remember as the tears fall from your eyes
That you had someone who gave you all his time
And you chose not to stick around
And remember when you lie in bed tonight
That you lost someone who would keep you warm at night
And you chose to let me down


You should've held a little tighter
To the love we used to share
You should've called me over
But now, I won't be there


You should've held a little tighter
Instead you let me go
You should've called to keep me close
Instead you chose somebody else

No such thing as luck,

No such thing as luck, believe on your greatness and hold fast to your determination luck is made when you choose a favourable option in a set of changing circumstances... Nah fuck it go for luck it's a more romantic Notion... But fate now that's something we all have and it rocs because it means everything that is is how it should be because it is happening... But nothing, nothing works more than validating yourself. Luck is one hell of a side effect!  ;) nice write oberous one! 


Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

With the linear

Progression of a luck line
Follow the fated path set in time
Play the cards that you get dealt
And hope for luck when all else fails
Live the life you give your self
And try to look beyond the veil

Hey, I broke mine. :\  It's

Hey, I broke mine. :\  It's been all down hill since then. lol.

But, it's three, three leaved sisters live on my back porch now. 

And they seem to be happy in their shady little spot. 

I wish I didn't kill the 4 leafer after I broke it.

But I did. And I stuffed it in a book.

Holy moly! Two more!!?? Dang,

Holy moly! Two more!!?? Dang, you ARE lucky! ;)  I've only ever found one in my whole life. And I Broke it!! Next time, I'm leaving it in the forest though. I felt really bad for being selfish and taking it from its home only to kill it completely. It could have had a full life out there on the mountain side but nooooo..... I had to brag about manifesting it. *facepalm  lesson learned.

They grow

Around my car. She's got the luck.
I'll look one day, and nothing. I'll park overnight, and the next day, boom four leaves
Very strange indeed. I have one that's a mutant. Three big leaves, one tiny leaf.

People refuse to learn.

People refuse to learn. Instead of cherishing what they have, they always think the grass is greener on the other side, and the only reason it looks that way, is because it's fertilized with bullshit. Where have all the smart people gone? ~peace~


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

'Fertilized with bullshit'

Brilliant. Love it.


But when you get to the other side, doesn't where you left become the other side?
I say, be satisfied with what is in your life
And ignore any other side

I like my music

Shaken, not stirred.
And I appreciate your epic praise, sir.
