loneliness

Postby Richard Hedley Atkinson » Thu Oct 30, 2008 1:07 am

loneliness

it’s
how
others
view
u

but maybe
not
how
u
view
your self.

Martys
blouse.


Bukowski
Joseph Beuys
Celine
Carver

some famous people
craved
it
like
something
to
attain

or be proud
of.

if u do truly feel it
remember
life
is
just
a
practise
for
death

and in death
we
will
only truly
find
it

forever
over many eons
that will go
on
like
a forever cheap
job

lunch
break
with the same sandwich.

so now really
is
the
only chance
we
get
to
practise
it

fine tune it
welcome it
praise it.

but then again
even the
co-operation
of

dancing

fools
can
be
welcome
if
u
r
at the
end of your
tether.

it might
even
give
u
something to laugh
about
even dancing fools
have
a
purpose.

and laughing can be better
then
money
sex
and
power
any
day.

be a holy
sinner.

find
laughter
in
true
desperation.

true
loneliness
is
just
another
word
for
being
human,
this strange
condition
we all seem to have,
but most
fuck it up.

maybe this is
the
only
time
we
ever
get
to
be
truly
alone

and
it
can
be
wonderful.

no questions
no having to explain
no small talk.

just u
the 4 walls
and lousy neighbour’s
who play sod all
like we were dead already.

and a

desperation
it will never
change,

as
if.

just one lousy
bum
being
the
only
lousy
bum

he/she
can
be.

without ever going out
again,
after the attacks.

shit !
even
lousy bums have a purpose
but

I still need to
find
mine ?

or maybe I have,
thinking is a lost
art.

but I am all for it
without the
bull.
let the spirit wane for the art to appear

you have very clearly (in my opinion) honed in on what this song was saying way 'back-in-the-day':

http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=gJP8gWLc4IE

and that's just for a 'start' ...

of course, i'm wise enough to also state that i'm in no way accusing you of rip-offery. hardly your style old stick :wink: ...

no, your piece ' loneliness' is much more than that. i've read it about seven times now, twice stoned, so the results may be askew, but it has played a sequence of cool 'halflights' in my mind and left me wondering about 'the big stuff.'

put simply - it's a peach ack ...

i'll no doubt pick up further on this over on sensitize, ever-hopeful that some other members will join in. i could do with some feedback on my stuff too if you ever feel inclined...

i hope you got my last two communications with you on facebook. this msn closure melarky's a right kick in the nuts - but i'm safe, you're safe and anyone else who joined and took part in sensitize are too.

room
for all
who remain
dedicated
to the
art
of
art...
