Love that is not Madness is not Love.

Maybe that’s what Hell is.

 

You go Mad and all yourDemons come and Get you

As fast as you canThink of them.

"Love, with young people, is a heartless business.

We drink at that age from thirst, or to get drunk;

it is only later in life that we occupy ourselves

with the individuality of our wine."

 

Isak Dinesen

 

"There's a Fire and a Motion

of the Soul

That does not dwell

 in its own narrow

Being, but aspires beyond the

Fitting Medium

 of Desire."

 

Lord Byron

I walk the lonely path in dreamy steps,

wondering what the future may well hold in store for me.

And often on the mountain in the old oak’s shadow,

In the gathering sundown, I sit in sorrow.

 

i_sit_in_sorrow.jpg

 

There, amid the Scottish glen, where I could drink up

the source of bliss.

That’s the ideal good my soul desires, nameless on earth,

To which my heart aspires.

 A return of happiness, forlorn hope?

Perhaps among the crowd below, one soul ignored

Would understand my soul and respond?

Gotta get off, gonna get, have to get off from this ride.
Gotta get hold, gonna get, need to get hold of my pride.

When did I get, where did I, how was I caught in this game?
When will I know, where will I, how will I think of my name?


When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why?

Is this a dream, am I here, where are you?
What's in back of the sky, why do we cry.

Gotta get off, gonna get off of this merry-go-round!

Gotta get off, gonna get ,need to get on where I'm bound.


When did I get, where did I, why am I lost as a lamb?
When will I know, where will I, how will I learn who I am?


Is this a dream?

Am I here, where are you?
Tell me, when will I know, how will I know
When will I know why?

'But I don’t want to go among MAD people,'

Alice remarked.

 

'Oh, you can’t help that,' said the Cat.

'We're all MAD here. I’m MAD. You’re MAD.'

 

'How do you know I’m MAD?' said Alice.
'You must be,” said the Cat.

 'or you wouldn’t have come here.'”

Till strange love, grown bold ~

Think true love acted simple modesty.

My lady,

There are few more impressive sights in the world than

a Scotsman on the make.

 

James M. Barrie

Sometimes I wonder if men and women

really suit each other.

 

Perhaps they should live next door and

just visit now and then.

 

KATHARINE HEPBURN

"Charm . . .

it's a sort of bloom on a woman.

about_a_womans_bloom.jpg

 

If you have it,

you don't need to have anything else;

 

my_blueheaven350.jpg

 

and if you don't have it,

it doesn't much matter what else you have.

Some women, the few, have charm for all;

and most have charm for one.

But some have charm for none."

 

What Every Woman Knows

James M. Barrie

   

 

It is best to Love wisely, no doubt;

 

lovewisely.jpg

 

But to Love foolishly is better than

 

   

 

Not to be able to Love at all.

And let us mind, faint heart ne'er won

A Lady Fair.

Wha does the utmost, that he can

Will shyles do mair.

Edge of Heaven

Fire! I can see it burning so brightly.

namelesss_girl.jpg

Fire! I can feel it calling out to me.

 

 

And as the sun goes down,

It starts to paint a picture

Of an ancient town.

 

 

 

So far away, across the endless sea,

Lead me to the light

touching_edge_heaven.jpg

 

And take me to the

Edge of Heaven.


 

 

I’m standing in the night

?_AIN'T_TELLING!  TYPICAL_GUY_CHECKING_WHO_IT_IS!

 

Looking for the Edge of Heaven,

 

 

We’ll be touching the

Edge of Heaven.


 

Time
Close your eyes see dreams of tomorrow.

Time
The wheels are turning till eternity.

And as the darkness comes,


 

 

I start to see a picture
Of a lonely man

of_a_lonely_man.jpg

So clearly now reaching out for me.

 

 

Lead me to the light...

And sail the endless sea.

 

 

 

So lead me to the light

And take me to the

Edge of Heaven.

 

A True Love of Mine

 

 

 

The Edge of Heaven is near,

We’ll sail the endless sea

For always, forever, together.

Love,

It can be like Heaven,

But It can also hurt

Like Hell!
