Linda Ori

Rookie - 40 Points (08/13/1945 / UTAH)


Why is the emptiness so cold?
Is it because I'm growing old?
The fire glows in the distance,
Too far away to comfort these old bones;
Always in need of something more -
Another kiss, another tender caress,
Dependent and needy,
Weak and unfulfilled am I,
Unable to find me within myself.........
You are gone and I am lost.

    I'm no more the manifestation of verse
    but at backstage of your melodies
    I don't figure in your songs
    but the silence that connect sense to syllables (Report) Reply

    I'm glad I know you well enough to know that (even if you may have felt so at the time of composition) the last four lines are simply untrue. That doesn't detract from the fact that it is a heartache-inducing, memorable piece. t x (Report) Reply
