Promises and Whispered Words:

They're just words, no one really hears them, right? It's not as if your words have any impact on others in this virtual world. Toss around the 'L' word, echoes of what we seem to be wanting to hear, and no one gets hurt, right?

This song was written by me almost 30 years ago, and it still applies:
Mirage of a Man
You whisper to me how I'm the one,
Your breath so hot against my ear...
Swaggering, and not to be outdone,
You take, and then you disappear.

Mirage of a man, I realize it now,
Not everyone sees you, mirage of a man...

But some of us get taken in,
Equating sex with love, and need,
An empty space when it wears thin,
In the face of hollow words, I yield.

Mirage of a man, I realize it now,
And not everyone does, you mirage of a man...

Promises made, and then deleted;
I warm the space where you once lay
My heart was full, I'm now depleted,
Fervently wanted, then cast away.

Mirage of a man, I realize it now,
Not everyone can, mirage of a man...
You hide behind the smoke screen of mirrors and words
Then slip away unseen, but not unheard


DRAGONSTATUS: Weary of darkness alone in the cave, the Dragon is seeking a Knight or a Knave, Cowards may fear the trial by fire, but this is what the Dragon requires

I like the words to your song...disturbing, but too often true.

Idle and empty words tossed so carelessly into unsuspecting and trusting hearts. I know it's of little comfort, but you're not alone.

Thanks, H, I don't often feel alone, but when I do, I reminisce, and maybe that's not such a good thing...

Is it not the Knight who is constantly seeking damsels in distress? What you seek is neither Knight or Knave, but a simple farmer to love, grow old and share life with.

The truly wonderful and beautiful people get what they need (even if they don't know what exactly that is), so be patient ... life will provide.
