Sylvan Hollow

Gimme shelter in this world gone wild. A loner's dream of moon dust that's wild on the run. Just live and breathe, keep your eyes on the wheel in the sky, and bear the winds of March.

A Meeting

Posted in Uncategorized on March 1st, 2007

I thought the years would melt away,

I thought the smiles were true.

But then I saw we’d pulled apart,

And saw that Fate was cruel.


Changes! whispered every word,

As I felt my heart descend.

Flashes blink lights from the past

And to darkness they ascend.


I saw with eyes I had not owned,

And thought I was content.

Bu now I see with bitter truth,

That sight is always bent.


The motions of encountering a ghost from the past are untraceable. Hope rages, fear lurks, and elation and depression in turn will have their course. Change is inevitalbe, but we refuse to see it coming, and are always surprised when it rears its head. In the headiness of elation, we become giddy and silly, the emotions of the moment compensating for the hurt they can temporarily smother. In the throes of depression, we become whinging poetic hypocrites, victims of drama and bombast. Then we see the truth: we never saw at all. We have always lied. Each lie grows and conquers and yet we mistake it for truth. Love truly can be so blind.

So what am I doing today? Well, nothing much. Basically wasting my life away. Come off it, you can’t be insane and unreasoanable all the time, can you? No, I thought not. The song that’s currently playing right now is Edge of the Blade by Journey, but likely to change within the next ten seconds, as Neal Schon has been shredding for the past minute or so. Yep, there it goes. It’s ending. The next song iiiiiis…….Dirty White Boy, by Foreigner! Yes! I love this song. I sang some of it to Zahrah last night…cus I’m a dirty white boy…yea, a dirty white boy…a dirty white boy, and that’s about all I know of it. Although I’m not really a dirty white boy, nor do I plan on becoming one in the near future.


I’m supposed to be doing a couple of essays right now, but I’m still procrastinating..duh…ok, I’m gonna go waste some more of my life doing something equally useless someplace else.


No one’s been reading, have they?




Hello world!

Yay, Umaima’s got a blog! Well, I love to write, so this should serve me quite well. Oh, wow, there’s too much on my mind, dunno where to begin. If you’re even on this page, I’m going to assume I’ve directed you here and you do know who I am, so I shall skip the introductions. I would appreciate it very much if, after you read my rants, that you leave a comment, just to let me know how you felt about it or whatever! I love to get feedback, and I love to talk, so all purposes served, all of us can sleep better at night…
