Your poem reminded me so much of things I wrote in high school--so true to the moment and how I felt. Thanks for sharing that.

Saturday Sun - Nick Drake

Saturday sun came early one morning
In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do.
Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn't seem much in their day
But when I remember those people and places
They were really too good in their way.
In their way
In their way
Saturday sun won't come and see me today.

Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain.
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again
And again
And again
And Saturday's sun has turned to Sunday's rain.

So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun
And wept for a day gone by. Image
I don't speak English very well.

this is an epic sized post...i just like music and thought i'd share some of my faves with y'all...contained are both the lyrics and a youtube link so you can actually listen to them...should you have the time or the inclination!

stabbing westward - so wrong
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YY1zuBTS6EU

wasted thoughts of you
desperate prayers to you
give me back my mind
I'm empty inside

what have I become?
everything's undone
a candle burns here in your honor
my soul, a shrine i've built for you
there's nothing left inside me
nothing left inside but you

can't seem to pretend
this night needs to end
I can't fill this hole
you are all i know

it's so wrong that I need you
it's so wrong that I need abuse
it's so wrong that I need you
so wrong that I'm scared I'll die alone



staind - self destruct
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GMC9W37hsA

Watch me suffer
You'll feel better
Stick the needle in my vein
Lost my feelings with my dealing
Thoughts of only you remain

###$

Rip and tear
In my despair
Agonizing over $#%^
Feel the needle burn and tingle
My bad habits deal with it


###$
I will self destruct

My light has slowly faded
Broken and degredated
Suffocate in my sorrow
Maybe I'll die tomorrow
This riot that I've sited
Came to you uninvited
Truth hurts when it's in your face
Are you afraid of it?



I will self destruct

I think I'm gonna snap

I self destruct my mind
I self destruct my world
I self destruct my life



staind - 4 walls (disclaimer...this is THE most depressing song the world has ever seen, but aaron lewis describes it perfectly...i used to listen to this on repeat for days)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eag5slJ_yag

The thoughts from my mind
Command my lips say I hate you
The thoughts from my mind
Command my hands to cut your silken flesh
The thoughts from my mind
Command my feet to stomp your head
The thoughts from my mind have one question...
When will this ever end?

CHORUS:
Not much to the life I live
Same 4 Walls
I have nothing left to give
Please take it all away....
Same 4 Walls

The thoughts from my mind
Feel the pain as rats claw at my flesh

The thoughts from my mind
Feels the joy as the needle hits my vein
The thoughts from my mind
Smells the stench as $#%^ runs down my leg
The thoughts from my mind ask for sanity
Now for this I beg

CHORUS

(spoken)
my mind is like today.
damp dark dreary
as the rain falls outside beating,
though it hits the ground
i can feel it
slipping away
dying without decay
dying like my soul
from the inside out.
i can only prey
it won't be long
it won't be long now
it can't be long
it can't be long now...
help me...
(where do i go from here?)

The thoughts from my mind
Command my lips say I hate you
The thoughts from my mind
Command my hands to cut your silken flesh
The thoughts from my mind
Command my feet to stomp your head
The thoughts from my mind have one question...
WHEN WILL I BE DEAD?

CHORUS




brand new - sic transit gloria...glory fades
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ecAyTL1psE

Keep the noise low
She doesn't wanna blow it
Shaking head to toe
while your left hand does "the show me around."
Quickens your heartbeat
It beats me straight into the ground

You don't recover from a night like this
A victim still lying in bed completely motionless
A hand moves in the dark to a zipper
Hear a boy bracing tight against sheets barely whisper,
"This is so messed up."

Upon arrival the guests had all stared
Dripping wet and clearly depressed, he'd headed straight for the stairs
No longer cool, but a boy in a stitch,
unprepared for a life full of lies and failing relationships.

(Up the stairs, the station where
the act becomes the art of growing up.)

He keeps his hands low
He doesn't wanna blow it
He's wet from head to toe and his eyes give her the up and the down
His stomach turns and he thinks of throwing up
But the body on the bed beckons forward and he starts growing up

The fever, the focus
The reasons that I had to believe you weren't too hard to sell
Die young and save yourself
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed but now it's choking me up
Die young and save yourself

She hits the lights
This doesn't seem quite fair
Despite everything he learned from his friends, he doesn't feel so prepared
She's breathing quiet and smooth
He's gasping for air
"This is the first and last time," he says
She fakes a smile and presses her hips into his
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides
He's holding back from telling her exactly what it really feels like

He is the lamb
She is the slaughter
She's moving way too fast and all he wanted was to hold her
Nothing that he tells her is really having an effect
He whispers that he loves her,but she's probably only looking for se-...

(Up the stairs, the station where
the act becomes the art of growing up.)

So much more than he could ever give
A life free of lies and a meaningful relationship
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides
He waits for it to end and for the aching in his gut to subside

The fever, the focus
The reasons that I had to believe you weren't too hard to sell
Die young and save yourself
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed but now it's choking me up
Die young and save yourself

Up the stairs, the station where
the act becomes the art of growing up.

The fever, the focus
The reasons that I had to believe you weren't too hard to sell
Die young and save yourself
The tickle, the taste of...
It used to be the reason I breathed but now it's choking me up
Die young and save yourself



avenged sevenfold - Desecrate Through Reverance
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwepuqP4z10

Hard news, taken harder, don't look to me
Disappointed, we don't agree, I don't need your praise...
(don't look my way for help,
from the beginning you came to me)
Never asked you to like me,
I don't want your praise (we won't play your games)
Look down on me, spit in my face,
you're nothing to me:not to me

Darkened eyes you'll see,
there is no hope, no savior in me
(don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
don't stare this way, anymore)
Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
what happens to me
(don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
don't stare this way, anymore)

My presence won't be ignored, no not today
Don't walk in my direction, turn the other way
(don't look my way for help,
from the beginning you came to me)
Asking questions, predetermined answers,
you won't find them here (we don't want your opinion)
And I don't want you, I won't let you think,
compromise is near. 'Cause it's not near.

Darkened eyes you'll see,
there is no hope, no savior in me
(don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
don't stare this way, anymore)
Learned from years gone by, no one will care,
what happens to me
(don't look this way, don't breathe this way,
don't stare this way, anymore)

I'm alone in here
No more feelings
Killed my fears
Don't ask
you'll never know
you're left behind and I'll be exposed

Far away, you keep on trying...
Holding me down, breaking away,
trying to distance my life.
Not one in the crowd, but one with the answer
the one that could change your mind

But it's not true, I don't need you
Don't waste your time, and don't waste mine
I'm not your friend, I won't soothe your soul
And in the end you're all dead to me....



and finally, and much more cheerful...the absolutely fantastic cansei de ser sexy(Tired of Being Sexy)

CSS - lets make love and listen to death from above
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYRAvNp_Llw


Calling me high in the telephone
Came by plane all alone
Spend the afternoon making a speech
Speech made you nervous that you couldn't eat
You came to show your mad love
You came to tell it's not enough
Come and erase me and take me with you
Kiss me I'm drunk don't worry it's true
I wanted to show you how mad is my love
Come and attack me it's not gonna hurt
Fight me, deny me if I fear when you're close
Let's make love and listen death from above

You knew my ideas when they were in my head
They were my secret evening plans
Wine, then bed, then more, then again
Wine, then bed, then more, then again
Run run run to make your heart shake
Kiss kiss kiss will make this earth quake
I'm gonna get what I'm willin to take
This gotta worth the miles you made
Come back I'll warm you up
Make me breakfast I'll make it up
You're so talented I'm in love
Lets make love and listen death from above
I'm back with a smack and I'm ready to attack
Stare at my lips and see they are wet
I know how you doing by looking at your pants
And this is how we call it a comeback...

Screaming your name on the microphone
Going back home all alone
Listen to the tunes that you sent to me
Listen to them good company
I want to show my mad love
You have to know it's not enough
Come and complete me, stay here with me
This is all true, it's water I drink
I want you to show me how mad is your love
Come and attack me it's not gonna hurt
Fight me, deny me if I fear when you're close
Lets make love and listen death from above
Use the talents you possess -- for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best.

A long ass song, Konstantine by Something Corporate....

I can't imagine all the people that you know
And the places that you go
When the lights are turned down low
And I don't understand
All the things you've seen
But I'm slipping in between, you and your big dreams
It's always you in my big dreams

And you tell me that it's over
Wake up lying in a patch of four leaf clover
And you're restless and I'm naked
You've got to get out
You can't stand to see me shaking..no
Could you let me go?
I didn't think so.

And you don't want to be here in the future
So you say the present's just a pleasant
Interruption to the past
And you don't want to look much closer
Because you're afraid to find out all this hope
You had sent into the sky by now had, crashed
And it did
Because of me

And then you bring me home
Afraid to find out that you're alone oh
And I'm sleeping in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

I had these dreams that I might learn to play guitar
Maybe cross the country - become a rockstar
And there was hope in me
That I could take you there
But dammit you're so young
Well I don't think I care and if I hurt you then I'm sorry
Please don't think that this was easy...

And then you bring me home
Cause we both know what its like to be alone oh
And I'm dreaming in your living room
But we don't have much room to live

And Konstantine is walking down the stairs
Doesn't she look good standing in her underwear?
And I was thinking what I was thinking
But we've been drinking and it doesn't get me anywhere...

My Konstantine came walking down the stairs
And all that I could do was touch her long blond hair
And I've been thinking but it hurts me thinking
That these nights when we were drinking
No they never got us anywhere

This is because I can spell konfusion with a K and I can like it
it's to dying in anothers arms and why I had to try it
it's to Jimmy Eat World and those nights in my car
when the first star you see may not be a star I'm not your star
isn't that what you said what you thought this song meant?

And if this is what it takes
Just to lie with my mistakes
And live with what I did to you
All the hell I put you through
I always catch the clock it's 11:11 and now you want to talk
It's not hard to dream
You'll always be my Konstantine

My Konstantine,
They'll never hurt you like I do
No, no never hurt you like I do
No, No, No, No, No, No, No, No

This is to a girl who got into my head
With all these pretty things she did
Hey you know you keep me up in bed
This is to a girl who got into my head
With all these ###$ up things I did
Hey maybe baby you could keep me up in bed
My Konstantine

You spin around me like a dream
We played out on this movie screen
And I said,
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
Did you know I miss you?
I miss you ...

And then you bring me home
And you go to sleep but this time not alone no no
And you'll kiss me in your living room,i know
No, you miss me in your living room
Cause these nights I think maybe that I miss you in my living room
But we don't have much room
I said does anybody need that room?
Cause we all need a little more room to live

...My Konstantine

When you're looking at life,
In a strange new room,
Maybe drowning soon,
Is this the start of it all?

Joy division-exercise one.

Another great one by Nick Drake is Northern Sky. It featured on the soundtrack for the film Serendipity.

Oh battered heart don't cry anymore
The reasons that caused it have passed.
For you are a rock on a seldom seen shore
And if hate is their weapon you'll last.

There's no fear in you heart,
You've seen it and judged it insane.
So why do you cry
When they say no goodbyes
And leave you alone in the rain?

slverkriss-

Thanks for saying you liked it. That's the best I've got. I wrote it, way back in 1975, with tears in my ears. :D
