Do not go gentle into that good night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

~Dylan Thomas (1914-1953)

Mano Saulė

Aš kasdien galvoju apie tave, mano gyvenimo meilė.  Aš rimtai, tu esi ypatingas.  Nepamiršk man karts nuo karto parašyti – kiek daug pokyčių įvyko ir aš tavęs labai ilgiousi.  Negaliu įsivaizduoti gyvenimo be tavęs, jis jaučiasi taip tuščias, tu nesate čia.

Taigi padėtis yra tokia bet mes niekur.  Tai ne tai, ką planuoja likimai.

Tikiuosi, kad vieną dieną, tikiuosi, kad mes iki to dar prieisime.  Mano pasaulis be tavęs – tamsu, tuščias, vienišas ir šaltas; jūs paėmėte saulės spindesį, mano šiluma, mano komfortas ir saugi vieta, mano namai.  

Tu esi mano namai ir tyla yra skausminga.  Noriu geriausio draugo atgal, mano mylimasis, mano kompanionas, mano pasaulis.  Niekada nesame matę nieko panašaus, šis ryšys.  Tu žinai, ir aš tai žinau.

Žinau, kad tai sudėtinga ir suprantu, kad tai nelengva, tačiau ir aš, ir jūs žinome, kad dar daug nepadaryta.

Prašau atleisk man.  Aš pasiklydau.  Aš vis tiek tau reikia.  Aš vis dar noriu tave.

Aš tavęs labai ilgiousi. Aš visada tave mylėsiu.

Atleisk man.



Author Hiatus – A note from Admin

Ana has taken a break from social media, from this blog, from external distractions and pressures for an undetermined amount of time.  This blog was always a place for her to share her work; her stories, her thoughts, her personal triumphs and struggles and it only seems fitting that it continue that way.  She had been working on a lot of different things for this blog and herself; thoughts, story pieces, quotes, letters and songs which she had drafted for posting at a later date, so you will still continue to see semi-regular posts for the time being.  Some are complete, and some are not.  You will see both.

She has always maintained that this was her space to share pieces of herself when she at many times struggled to do so in her life outside this little piece of the internet and was always grateful for the following and readership she received over the past three years, from loved ones, friends – new and old, and strangers alike.

Thank you for reading and continuing to read.

Star Shopping

Wait right here, I’ll be back in the morning
I know that I’m not that important to you but to me you’re so much more than gorgeous
So much more than perfect
Right now I know that I’m not really worth it
If you give me time I can work on it
Give me some time while I work on it
Losing your patience and I don’t blame you

If I find a way will you walk it with me?
Look at my face while you talking to me
Cause we only have one conversation a week
Can I get one conversation at least?

This music’s the only thing keeping the peace when I’m falling to pieces

Look at the sky tonight, all of the stars have a reason
A reason to shine, a reason like mine and I’m falling to pieces
Look at the sky tonight, all of the stars have a reason
