I know that you're an artist, you're the hardest one to deal with. Everything that you conceal is revealed on your canvas. You find all of your ugly meanings in the things I find beautiful. Do you see the fall is coming? Come, I'm falling into you. You perceive all of these things I'd never have known. Love, will you turn off the lights? 'cause we're already home. You painted me in pastel, colors that don't tell of any boldness. That's the way you'd love to see me: so delicate, so weak, so little purpose. But your eyes are drawn of charcoal they're black, they're so cold, they're so imperfect. Because they see a sleeping world,
where waking isn't worth it. You perceive all of these things I'd never have known. Love, will you turn off the lights? 'cause we're already home. how, how, can you live without your lies. oh, oh, love I've had enough of you tonight. all of these things I'd never have known,oh.
love will you turn out the lights 'cause we're already home, oh. You perceive all of these things I'd never have known, oh. love will you turn out the lights,'cause we're already home, home.
CLICKY HEEE-UH. You know you wanna ;)
The Disappointing Artist
“But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.”

“Absence is a house so vast
that inside you will pass through its walls
and hang pictures on the air.”

In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.
For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.
The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.
But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.
The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.
They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
Oh my heart.
