DANCE ON ALONE

I know what you think,
you've told me enough,
Stop dwelling on it, on them
Move on,
Enough,
Get outside yourself, stop whining...

But, it's not just for me anymore,
Though it is certainly for me, too;
There are those that need to know
That think that they are the only ones
That have had to go on and go on and
Go so many years without...
Without that son or daughter or lover.
Husband or wife.
There is comfort in numbers even if the number
Is only two.

Do you know why they say a piece of you dies
When someone you love dies?
When you are intimate with a woman or a son,
A man or a daughter,
There are things you share with each of them that
No one else in the world will Ever know...
Pieces of you and who you are
That after they're gone
You're not sure if you made it up or if it
Was really ever there at all.

So you go on, less of You
Than you started with, but
With more heart and a thicker
Skin than you had before...

But you put one foot out,
And bring it back,
Move the other over
And bring it back;
Curl your arm out into the empty space
In front of you
And you dance on alone
In the dark
With no music
With no rhythm...

Until someone comes along
And turns the light on for you.

Hank,
The way you lay your heart out there when you write is
a powerful release for you in some way, I hope.

All the Ongoing goings-on of all that’s gone on…and on.

Not a day went by that he didn’t get caught somewhere between what should have been and how it all fell apart.

Not a night, not a moon, not a ride down by the old mill…and those pesky happy couples walking, smiling, damn.
Even when he went all the way to Danville for supplies, he was reminded that he went there so he wouldn't see her.

…everything reminded him of her.

If he only knew that all those things reminded her…of him.

"So mommies and daddies enjoy every minute
Delight in this life and all that comes with it
It won't happen to you,that's what we're told..
For you,be happy and with them grow old.

But every dawn as the world gets lighter
Pick them up and kiss them and hold them tighter
Remember every moment till you're old and gray
And always enjoy Father's Day."

He is so much now like Crystal and Stone,
Just Like Hardin's Misty Roses...
Jack plays guitar in the corner and
Mick sings just like
the rest of us breathe...

Oh, my love,
there is nothing more romantic
than you and a Newbury Waltz...

La da de la da da
La da da da da da
La da de la da da
Da da doo..........

Paper boat upon a chaotic tempest.
Red right returning...

"Time didn't stand still...
it flew...backwards."

He kept thinking that if enough time passed it wouldn't hurt so bad when he saw her.

But like some very wise, very old man once said,
"The longer you are away from the flame,
The more it burns when you return..."

She kept thinking that if enough time passed it wouldn't hurt so bad when she saw him.

But, it did. It hurt even worse when ... she saw him.

It was “now” way back when

But now it’s just “then”.

And they both sit there in “now”

Longing for “then”… again


My Grandmaw used to say, "Now, then".
I think I know what she meant.

She at times still comes around,
but she's someone else's now,
I can't lay it down,
no matter how I try...

As I stepped off the train
I saw the old depot and
beyond it the dusty street that
led to the saloon where so many years
had been spent practicing my, um, craft.
Funny how different it looked
with clear eyes in the light of day.

The pretty redhead was holding the
young girl that had gotten off behind me.
I noticed her eyes thru the tears and
how they still changed colors with the light.
She had been here in the whiskey years
but something [besides Carmelita]
had kept me from ever approaching her.
I never knew if it was the pain or the
intelligence in her face,
but every time I started to talk to her
it just came out as mumbles.

She said, I heard you gave up the
whiskey and the preaching,
so what do you do now?
I said, I try to make things right.
She said, It's a big world, why here?

I looked at her face and her eyes,
still changing, but slowly now, and said,
Gotta start somewhere, and besides,
It kinda feels like home.
