my weaknesses are being tested


What is currently occupying various spaces in my mind (in no particular order):


the frustrations of 2 of my closest friends, my desire to ease them, & the paralysis of distance
TarTar Binkerbutt
a dream I had the other night
our death trap's need of snow tires & proper tire alignment
November 18th
fighting the urge to push the red button
my need for words when words can mean nothing

In a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing
In a manner of speaking
I don't understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way that i feel about you
Is beyond words
give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything
In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live we live we only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrified
So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That just like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing.

don't push the red button Valorie. Better use meaningless words than push the red button.
