Pictures From A Life Less Lived

There is a light, and it never goes out

And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking

That's the way you're built, my father said

Hard wired for downloading

Bursts of colour 'til I'm sick

Self-portrait

Rosary, blessed in Lourdes

Seemed the wisest of philosophies

Do you really think she'll pull through?

I never really gave up on breaking out of this two-star town

Losing my attention, I'm taking the world on

"How you injure yourself isn't as important as recognizing that you do and what it means in your life."

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth

I can tell you I'm sorry, but I can't tell the truth dear

I packed a fishing line and counted on it

Portrait

I hear you're counting sheep again Mary Jane

Trouble is diet's not a big enough word

Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way

But they're not yours, they are my own

This time I'm coming down

  1. Fantastic Pictures. I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour but heaven knows I’m miserable now. Must go as I have some frightening verse to write to a bucked tooth girl in Luxembourg.

    Stop being so bloody talented, leave some crumbs of creativity for us mere mortals, and stop using all the best words in the best order.

    One post and I am hooked, would it be wrong of me to say “Your’re the one for me, fatty” as I feel I have known you much much longer than one comment and one post.

    Dave.

    • Heh, thank you *smile*

      Medusa piercings can damage your gums, causing them to recede, but there are things you can do to help it. Getting a plastic (or Bioplast) bar rather than metal helps, as does good placement. It’s one of those things you don’t know if it’ll happen until it does, so I’d advise you to go for it! It you get any problems, it can always be taken out.

  6. I saw that you had followed my blog (or outlet, because I don’t realy blog, I vent) and decided to check yours out. Your username really called to me, if that makes any sense, and made me come and look at your blog with the sensation that I’d get something interesting, and it hasn’t failed me. Your blog is brilliant, and quite different, and I really like that.

    I also love the photographs. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes, even more. Photography is one of my favourite things, but I haven’t felt the call that much lately, but I like it so much because it’s an image of your life, a projection of yourself and your thoughts, and it’s very personal, so props for putting them up here. They’re extremely expressive to me, something that I always appreciate in photography, because it’s obvious that it came from inside yourself.
