Silence is golden

So commuting to work today and my headphones didn’t fit over my head so no music from the ferry to work.  With the snow and lack of traffic it was a more quiet and surreal experience.  Even on the train ride to UW, it was quiet except for the whirl of the heater blowing and the swift movement of the train flowing on the tracks along the tunnel walls.  Was definitely using my mindfulness skills to observe my senses and the things around me.  I think with the technological age that we are in, we tend to try to shut out the noise of the outside world, or to at least control the noise that we let into our brain.  But maybe that is a false notion and in fact, from time to time, we need to take out the EarPods out of our ears and just listen to the world around us.

Tinashe-Bated Breath

What if I told you that it was all in vain?
Would it still hurt you?
Would you still feel the same?
Said its impossible-possible
So impossible
But you’re still waiting on the moment breath is bated
I wish I could hold you, I can’t take it
Tell you all my secrets
I’m too faded
Praying that tomorrow I’ll be braver
Maybe I can tell you, maybe we can do this
Kisses on my forehead we can fall into it
Love you like the rain, falls much faster
Living in a piece of ever after
Forever after
Living in the piece of ever after
Ever after, ever after
If you will you have me
I’ll make you happy
Need someone to whom I can belong
Here’s my confession
Saving it special
Hoped it would be you all along
All along
But you’re still waiting on the moment breath is bated
I wish I could hold you, I can’t take it
Tell you all my secrets
I’m too faded
Praying that tomorrow I’ll be braver
Maybe I can tell you, maybe we can do this
Kisses on my forehead we can fall into it
Love you like the rain, falls much faster
Living in a piece of ever after
