"If I fell in love a thousand times, would it all make sense?" Sense - Tom Odell

Learn to say no, they said
Before you dwindle to dust
Till they drain all of your magic
In their selfish claws that constantly grab
The mouths that never pause
To listen to the cries of your heart

There is a small world I turn to
Where a small hope glistens
And in it, small me awaits

Break from your dungeons of dread
Give yourself some self-respect
Do not disappear in their needs
For they will grab you,
Devour you
Till the last crumb of you bleeds

    Speaks to the heart...reminds and uplifts. There is only so much one could take. Loved this, Laura. Great to see you. Kim

    I listened to the song. Nice tune and interesting words--the piano and voices in the background are very pleasant. Hadn't heard him before. So thanks for taking me there. Choices. Eventually, we grab a line that doesn't break and off we go. Goodness there are a lot of people with needs, so we have to wear some protection. In NY, people in the street don't look at each other and don't say hello. Strange world we live in--parts of it do not make sense, but we try to cope. No other choice.

    So true, we need to watch our boundaries, it isn't easy when love comes into play, we are so fragile as humans, if it weren't for God's glass paperweight, we'd all fly away, I always love my visits here, dear Laura, be blessed, and may you be loved with gentleness your whole life through xxx

    I really like the fact that this brilliant poem can be read as a self motivation or it can be read as though you are encouraging, leading someone else into the dawn of their self empowerment Laura. The language is so clear, powerful, and beautiful, like you wise Poetess. "The mouths that never pause to listen to your heart's cries...Till the last crumb of you bleeds." Your words, and heart make me virile...J.A.B. A FAV!!
