Silent silent

I am leaving my job that slowly killed me, I am taking a quiet life, with no alarms and no surprises, with no alarms and no surprises, no alarms and no surprises. Come with me before it’s too late…no alarms and no surprises, silent silent.

No Surprises/Radiohead

A heart that’s full up like a landfill,
a job that slowly kills you,
bruises that won’t heal.
You look so tired-unhappy,
bring down the government,
they don’t, they don’t speak for us.
I’ll take a quiet life,
a handshake of carbon monoxide,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
Silent silent.

This is my final fit,
my final bellyache,

with no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises,
no alarms and no surprises please.

Such a pretty house
and such a pretty garden.

No alarms and no surprises (get me outta here),
no alarms and no surprises (get me outta here),
no alarms and no surprises, please.

    I am happy if you leave your job, if it is slowly killing you. I am happy to follow you wherever you go and whatever you want to do with your life, I am your companion, I will give you my gifts, they are immaterial but they are strong medicine.. I need your gifts just as much as you need mine.

    Where will we go next? I’m not worried. We are supposed to move on to bigger and better things, us, two, the Binaries, together again.. for the rest of this lifetime at least. I hope to see you soon in the next one as well.. but I know that all depends on what We (I) do in this one. And I know it may be a long time until I see you again, after we have left these vessels and left behind out progeny. Not left behind.. we have released them to the wild again.

    I understand this now. Have a bit of a better understanding. I need a year or two to become stronger.. everyone knows this. You are here to heal me again, are you not? I am skinny and scarred and my sword is heavy, and you’ve come to heal me again.. how many times have we done this? I cannot even begin to count..

    They are beautiful Children, are they not?! I was thinking this, this morning in the shower (ever in the water.. the full moon.. the water moon.. the female element.. giver of life.. me). they are very beautiful children and I am proud of them.. every last one of them.

    That blade of grass there..?

    What a beautiful child. All the billions of beautiful offspring.. it is awesome to finally see all this again with such clarity.

    I hope you’re feeling well.. I constantly worry about you..

    You Heart,

    I respect every person that takes time to read and comment on my blog, I have no idea who Lilith is, but out of respect and just for the effort she made to read and comment over almost every posting, I will keep the comments as they are – but it is fictional (creative) and prtending to have a connection to the real life charecters behind this blog.

    Rambo: are we real?

    Asael: sometimes we are

    Rambo: and sometimes?

    Asael: sometimes we are as well.
