EDIT/UPDATE - Just a friendly bump on this... Finally had the pleasure of getting to see these words land in one killer tune. Many thanks to SC 350 for his work on a tremendous track. Check it out if you have a chance, he did an absolutely fantastic job.

Between Here and There

Something I wrote, in my early 20's as I was trying to gain a better understanding of what life was all about. Not sure, I've come any closer to figuring it out, aside from focusing in more on the best things in my life... Family, Friends, and music. There's a line in there that reminded me of Goport and his tag line (my head hurts) "I think too much it hurts", hence I went looking for it to see if I still had it. Thanks Goport, it was nice to dig this up and read it again...

Between Here and There

At another day’s end,
I lay wide eyed in bed
wishing for some rest…

Assessing what’s been done
Where I’ve fallen short
Find the things I can’t control

And a bump has turned to aching
The night I save for waiting
Talking in my sleep

What do I really want
Will probably change tomorrow
What I lost I still miss

The difference between sometime when
And now,
I think too much it hurts

What’s next in this growing up
Beside falling down, rising up
Don’t answer

Don’t ruin the surprise,
Without that, I can’t reflect
Or wonder what if

I really like this. A very good balance between retrospective emotions and the potential of the future.

But ...

"And a bump has turned to aching
The night I save for waiting
Talking in my sleep"

Now that is *Quality* mate! The stuff I wrote in my early twenties was anything but good :)

DLYNN, Thanks for checking them out... I really appreciate the vote of encouragement too. Hopefully, I'll be re-visiting some works that I have in storage, and I'll find something to share. Thanks again.
