No Intermissions

Only God Knows Why  – Photography by Tommy Cavarela

 

No Intermissions


Tightrope concessions
Between the aisle
Then and now
Dies the silent tick
Of futile seconds
Lost causes
Moving farther away
From the beginning
Closer to the end
No intermissions
Seasoned seats aging
Contemplating
A swan song

 

“My truth yesterday is just that, the truth of yesterday, my truth today has been shaped by all my yesterdays.”     *     *

    1. After I wrote the poem, “Lazarus” seemed like the perfect song/video choice for so many reasons. (I didn’t know about the release date.) Thank you as always for your visit and always kind words. Here’s to a marvelous Tuesday! ~ Mia

  1. Holy crap! I hadn’t seen that video yet. Sooooooo haunting and powerful. Bowie is saying that he’ll be free, but you can tell that he is intensely horrified. It’s like he knew that something scary and unpleasant was awaiting him. Hmmmmmm… He looks terrified actually.
    That said, it’s the perfect video for your superb poem. Imagine if we could rewind our moments. It would take a very long time to die if that were the case. Hahaha.
    Great job Mia, and please have a wonderful day/evening.

    1. Staci, I want to thank you for your wonderful comment. Exactly, the poem is talking about life, as we go through the years, there are no time-outs or intermissions. We just have to stay the course and keep going. What do you do when you know the end is coming? You do the best you can until the very end. After I wrote this poem I thought, how could I not use this video, it’s perfect. I’m really pleased that you liked the poem and the video. Take care, enjoy your Wednesday! ~ Mia 🙂

      1. It was the perfect video for your poem. And yes, when you know your time is up, it really makes you stop and evaluate your life and how you lived it. It’s all about the decisions we make, right.
        You have a wonderful Thursday Mia. Today is my boy’s birthday. He’s 9. That means I’m going to eat some rich chocolate cake. Hahahaha. yum.

  2. The lady behind the broken glass is definitely not afraid even if she would never see the sun.. I can picture Tchaikovsky and the song of the last swan. Vivid!

    1. Thank you for such kind words Dajena. This is very true, we all have a swan song in us, it’s a matter of doing it with grace. I’ve long since lost count of how many times my grandmother took me to see Swan Lake, we loved it. Please have a beautiful day! ~ Mia
