Sand held in your hand

Sand when held loosely with an open hand, stays where it is. The moment you try to close your hand, squeeze tightly to hold on to it, sand starts trickling through your fingers. So much so that you might spill all or most of it. You may land up holding onto nothing.

Never Explain

Music can...

Music can make you Smile
Music can compel you to Cry
Music can make you Angry
Music can help you Pacify
Music can make you Scream
Music can introduce Silence
Music can make you Dream
Music can still be so Real
Music can bring in Melody
Music can give you Headaches
Music can make you Dance
Music can cause you to Stone
Music can put you to Sleep
Music can wake you Up
Music can make you Sing
Music can make you Shiver
Music can bother you to Think
Music can help you Forget

Music can help keep a Secret
Music can reveal the Truth
Music can hide your Pain
Music can aid you to Speak
Music can get you your Love
Music can energize you to Fight
Music can accompany a Prayer
Music can make you Abuse
Music can originate Passion
Music can induce Boredom
Music can bring Ecstacy
Music can generate an Orgasm
Music can coax you to Live
Music can play at your Deathbed

You never considered me as a friend

There were days when we joked around, played around. It all seemed so good & sweet around. We had great times when together. No fear, could be myself. We talked for long, maybe bizarre. The effort to make each others birthdays so special. The meals together memorable and the long drives unforgettable. The compliment you made that day, still brings a smile. It was all green. And your support when it was all blue. Then this ugly thing creeped in, and things changed. It never looked that beautiful again. You seemed to ignore or needed me no more. Sometimes I bless this ugly creep, had it not been there I would have not known the true you. The imperception would've never permitted me to see the other side, the stealthy side. I miss your presence, but somewhere down the line I'm happy. Atleast I dont have to live up with the made up face anymore. It feels so much more comfortable with the mask ripped off. Unhappy about the revelation though, "I was just someone, You never considered me as a friend."

I'm sure you would've picturized someone when you read this. Related each incident with some occurence in your life. Nodded in agreement too.

But you know what they say? You should not let go off your friends so easily. So heres one for you:

When youre down and troubled
And you need a helping hand
And nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest nights.

You just call out my name,
And you know whereever I am
Ill come running, oh yeah baby
To see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
All you have to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Youve got a friend.

If the sky above you
Should turn dark and full of clouds
And that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud
And soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know where ever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And Ill be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hey, aint it good to know that youve got a friend?
People can be so cold.
Theyll hurt you and desert you.
Well theyll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but dont you let them.

You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
Ill come running to see you again.
Oh babe, dont you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,
Hey now, all youve got to do is call.
Lord, Ill be there, yes I will.
Youve got a friend.
Youve got a friend.
Aint it good to know youve got a friend.
Aint it good to know youve got a friend.
Youve got a friend.

Stuck in the past, get over it fast
spasms of anxiety, dont let them last
shadows of misconception, dont cast
dont just deduce, options are vast
think about it again, just dont blast
