Tonight and Forever – Nandita (A Tangle of Weeds)

tonight my breath is blue
and my skin silver
tonight I am my memories
and with rue my heart is laden
bittersweet roll the chapters
Oh! what a tragedy!
this book of life
that was writ
with seeds of love sown
but was pounded
upon a hearth of stone

I wrote a new story
such was my art
it exalted me to glory
such was my craft
I’m the child of destiny
where my chapters don’t last

tonight and forever
my breath is blue
and my skin silver
For, I am the moon
that causes tides
only to drown
in those waters

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
