‘Til I Break At The Bend

She calls me from the cold
Just when I was low, feeling short of stable
All that she intends
And all she keeps inside isn’t on the label

She says she’s ashamed
And can she take me for awhile?
And can I be a friend
We’ll forget the past but maybe I’m not able
And I break at the bend

We’re here and now
Will we ever be again
‘Cause I have found
All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade away again

She dreams a champagne dream
Strawberry surprise, pink linen and white paper
Lavender and cream
Fields of butterflies, reality escapes her

She says that love is for fools who fall behind
And I’m somewhere between
I never really know a killer from a savior
‘Til I break at the bend

We’re here and now
Will we ever be again
‘Cause I have found
All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade away again

It’s too far away for me to hold too far away
It’s too far away for me to hold too far away

It’s too far away for me to hold too far away
It’s too far away for me to hold too far away
It’s too far away for me to hold too far away
It’s too far away for me to hold too far away

Guess I’ll let it go

Shimmer – Fuel

Am I incredibly cynical or maybe a visionary? Do I see the future or just a shimmer of whats to come? Should I follow someone who is ashamed, or should I forget the past and move into the future and be a friend to me? As I bend, will I break?

The path before me has many hills to climb, many valley’s to traverse. Life experiences have told me all that shimmers in this world is sure to fade away, yet I grasp onto the hope of another chance at happiness. Can I bend the world to meet my dreams? With all my heart I wish this to be true.

I look through the gate of my future and see my best friend waiting for me to follow. Her vision is not clouded by past tribulations and trauma. She see’s only a greener pasture beyond, open spaces free from the demands of a fickle society. I must narrow my focus to enjoy the same contentment. I must let go the past and embrace the future.

Straddling the fence only leads to splinters in places hard to remove, an awkward gait prone to misguided turns that lead nowhere. Do we follow someone that may be killer or a savior, or do we take the risk and run with the faith of our convictions? Is it too far away for me to hold…….will I break at the bend?

  1. Ponder…what kind of bad experiences are necessary to realize how good the good is…
    No matter how bad something gets…it will NEVER stay the same…

  2. Don’t know if you heard…someone burned your truck up on us202 a few days ago. Kept driving while hearing that hissing in the dashboard instead of stopping and getting out to see the blown brake can. That won’t be a problem once someone is done training with me. That’s right…I’m going to give training a try. Hope our paths cross. Take care Bill Ladd
